Great spot to chill on the beach!
Ooeemc [TA], , Singapore, Singapore

We only stayed here for one night on the recommendation of a fellow traveler and it was absolutely perfect. It has all the basic facilities you need, the location is BEAUTIFUL, the staff are wonderful, so helpful and friendly, and really went out of their way to organize our room (as we booked last minute) and arrange for transfer to the airport. It's a great place to relax on the beach

It was unbelievable trip.We went to Hikkaduwa to make a wedding day our relatives and friends.There were 13 people.It was very difficult to find a place.But we did it. When we came to Colombo a driver was waiting us, he took us to driffters hotel and villa.Lalith and all people,who work with him are very friendly,and they always ready to help you. And our wedding.It was gorgeous.Thank you for everything.If we will go there more, we will go to driffters.

Drifters Hotel, Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka Excellent"

I spent 3 weeks at Drifters Hotel. the room was very nice and clean, the staff were very nice and warm and Lalith the menneger is a very nice and decent guy.
Even though this is more of a family and coupels hotel, it can be very nice for singel which are looking for a clean nice place, close to" were it's all heppand" but more calm when you whant some quite.
there is also a very nice swiming pool to realex in after surffing.

Ajit N [TA], ,

Very very basic for a 70$ room not worth it at all
No power backup system at all if the electricity goes off which can happen often , had to sleep without power and had to actually wake up and run around with the only available security guard at 2:am trying to find a solution
Poor security

Many thanks!

It was a very nice vacation in the end of February and in the beginning of March.
The hotel is very beautiful. The main thing is that it is by the ocean where you can feel the smell of it and see the serfing going on.
Hotel administration was at the upper level and the restaurant administration boss was the uppest one.
I don't want to advertise this place, but I'm sure, that I'll come again.
I miss this place and people now.
Thank you for everything!

Great Family Place on the Beach
Jo-Anne K [TA], , Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Drifters was great. Directly on the beach. Surfers paradise. We loved it and will be going back. Lalith went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. New Years was a great party and the kids had the best time. Drifters has a convenient central location, walks were easy to central places. Loved it!

New years at Drifters
[TA], , London, United Kingdom

We had a great holiday here. Really nice hotel, run by super friendly staff willing to help at every turn. Lalith and co are all really friendly and always have time for the guests and big smiles on their faces. Came out of the surf and ate the excellent food from their kitchen everyday. Also had an amazing New years eve BBQ here too. Would definitely go back.

Good place to stay

If you are after a classic hotel option, close to the action in Hikkaduwa, the Drifters is a good choice. It's quiet and directly on the beach. The room is simple but well furnished. The bathroom could do with some updating but it was clean and everything worked all right.

I would go for a room on the first floor because you get some of the sea breeze.

Great Holiday
[TA], , Dubai, United Arab Emirates

We were recommended this hotel by a few friends of ours so decided to book a few days there over new Years going in to January 2014. Hotel is great, staff are friendly and always smiling.
Food is good and the location is perfect aswell. Lalith was great as we changed our booking a few times and he still managed to try his best and accommodate us.
Will definately be staying here again!!

Best Sri Lankan food so far!
[TA], , London, United Kingdom

Our first few meals between Bentota and Hikkaduwa were ok, not exactly amazing or what we were expecting but still good. Then we decided to try Hotel Drifters after peaking in the beautiful entrance on a tuk tuk ride and being reassured by our local driver it would be a good choice for dinner. We essentially had the place to ourselves-not normally a good sign but we soon realised it was everyone else that was missing out. The prawn curry with dhal curry, vegetables and an amazing coconut/garlic side left us already deciding to return the next night. The own Lallid was extremely welcoming and friendly and even cooked the meal himself that night as his usual chef was off for the night. Highly recommended!
