If you want to surf, there is a board rental right on the beach in front of the hotel with fair prices.
All the hotel staff are extremely friendly and very courteous.
However, we would like to take this opportunity to praise three members of staff in particular: Benisha and Ranjii from the restaurant team - who were always extremely friendly and attentive - and the pool/beach service employee (unfortunately we don't know his name), who was also always very helpful every day and always had an attentive eye on the bathers in the sea.
In summery, 100% recommendation for this amazing hotel. Thank you!

We selected Hotel Riff Hikkaduwa for our family vacation as per a recommendation from my friend. This is a place of quality. Top-quality room service that pays close attention to... Read More individual customers. Well-concerned details on the room with a breath-taking balcony view. It has a bigger pool, a nice beach, and a nice view from the rooftop. Food is also delicious and mouth-watering. Honestly, we expected a buffet. But after tasting their set menu of five courses, our opinion was totally changed. Here we "ENJOYED" the fine dining. It was so great and far better than a typical buffet. Special thanks to chef Lahiru and his staff. Overall, we can give this more than 5 stars and would highly recommend it. We will definitely visit again. More

There is a salt water pool we used everyday. Loungers are provided. As we were shoulder season unfortunately it wasn't safe to enter the water due to rip currents. But the beach is beautiful. The hotel offers 2 restaurants. There is a rooftop Japanese restaurant which we ate at on one occasion. The food was fine, our biggest issue was the lighting - it was incredibly dark.

There was excitement during our stay as a dog had her puppies under one of the sun loungers. Even this spoke volumes to the staff who made sure mummy dog had food, water and was looked after. Staff even made exception and tolerated my cat obsession!
The hotel is about 1km from turtle beach. There is a shop a few minutes away for anything you might need.
As we had a late pick up for the airport staff went out of their way to make sure had everything we needed on our last day - holding our luggage, letting us use the gym facilities to get showered and changed. Nothing was a hasse and this hotel was the epitome of service.
We were very sad to leave as we genuinely felt we were leaving friends, leaving the Riff. Hopefully some day we will get to return!!!! More
