Best Place to stay in Hikkaduwa
RetoTina [TA], , Zurich, Switzerland

The place is perfectly located and has everything you need. The rooms are nice and clean and in the evening its not too loud. The staff is cool and do a great job. You can take a nice walk on the beach or let you have cooked a great local meal on demand. I love the right mix of comfort and familiar atmosphere.

Room Tip: all the rooms are quiet good.

Don't !
Sara-Yvon... [TA], , Reykjavik, Iceland

We stayed for 6 nights in a room with air conditioning which was broken 2 of the first nights, and the third there was no electricity so therefor we had 3 nights out of 6 with no working air conditioning. When we paid for our stay we asked to get a discount since they charge 1500 more per night for A/C and they refused and told us we where already getting it cheaper which we told him we knew wasn't true since we had already checked online before booking.
Otherwise bad condition, dirty, fungus on the wall, impossible to get new towels, have to ask especially for room cleaning, bad breakfast, bad english speaking staff, the house dog was barking outside ALL night, bed was OK, location is OK.
The best thing about this hotel is the restaurant which had exelent Itialian food in the evening. Won't be coming here again.

Best vacation ever
Bård-Kenn... [TA], ,

Me, my wife and our two kids where so lucky to have the plasiure of staying at Time n Tide for 16 days. The place and the people working there are truly just wonderfull. It 's location is perfect. The staff working ther was helpfull with whatever we asked for. So glad we choosed that hotel and we are looking forward to wisit it again.

Cheap but below average
Mads R [TA], ,

We only went to time n tide because we were going dive in Hikkaduwa, so we needed a cheap place to crash. We stayed for five nights and it was five to many. The room was dirty and the washroom was filled with ants. The beds were really uncomfortable and the fan was so noisy. There was a lot of loud music from the restaurant at night. The breakfast was the same every morning and was below average. We only used the hotel to sleep at and was out all day long.

Basically good but not all that's promised

The good:
Great location on the beach
Great pizza place with real wood-fire baking
Good breakfasts
Comfy mattresses
Clean sheets
Nice grounds
a/c worked well
Lovely balconies on the upper floors

the bad:
Spotty internet (almost never in room and sometimes not available at all)
Only clean when you ask them to
Bathroom either didn't have hot water or had no water at all on a couple occasions
Shower isn't separated so whole bathroom is wet and they won't give you any extra towels
Furniture and mosquito nets are dirty and worn out
Floor wasn't cleaned behind the furniture that they pulled away from the wall for some reason
No cable on the cable TV

You can live without the amenities of TV, wifi, etc., but the price of the room should match the limited service.

Basically nice staff, if not especially helpful and many don't speak English
They have a lot of family rooms which are a bit crammed but something I'd be grateful for if I had kids

Room Tip: All upstairs rooms look good. The best balconies overlook the beach. Ask for one.

Excellent arrangement, beautiful hotel
Vera H [TA], , Minsk, Belarus

We were in this hotel with the husband. We stay in improved number. It was our first travel to Sri Lanka. Everything was pleasant to us very much. Numbers were quite spacious and pure, quite good furniture, sympathetic and benevolent personnel. Tasty pizza at the restaurant. Nice territory and a site (between a bay where there aren’t waves and the place for surfing). But the most magnificent was places for breakfasts: very tasty breakfast was served beautifully with a fine view of the ocean, it is the reason to stay here again. When we will be on Sri Lanka again, we will arrive to this hotel.

basic but pleasant
Martin H [TA], , Malmo, Sweden

Location very good. Service was good and the management were very helpfull when we needed a ground floor room and when aircon didn'nt work so no complaints there.
The rooms are very basic but functional and bathrooms seemed to be retiled recently.
I thought maybe some what a little over priced however they have probably one of the best restaurants in Hikkadua called the Woodfire and was packed out every night.
All in all we enjoyed ourselves.

chambre au tarif raisonnable directement à la plage service agréable les gérants peuvent vous organiser un tour dans le pays (super d'ailleurs)...et note supplémentaire pour la réouverture de leur restaurant super mimi et de très bonne qualité

Thank Goodness arrived dusk so could not "see" the grounds/area!
EBWgirl [TA], , Aurora, Colorado

The ONLY good thing about this place is what another reviewer "460kismet" said about the beautiful sunset, and THAT is Nature NOT this awful hotel. My room was okay, and was at the end so I did get to see the sunset from the balcony of the room, but like I said because it was dusk, the darkness completely masked the rundown, dirty, bottles-strewn all over the place, rickety steps to the beach, and just plain awful environment of this place. RESORT??? PLEASE, someone, anyone...REMOVE THAT WORD FROM THE NAME OF THIS PLACE!!!

At night I was served a meal..luckily I am adaptable and can eat most anything...The food just appeared...no one asked what I wanted, no one offered a menu, no one even SPOKE to me, no one did ANYTHING. Then in the morning, I came down about 8am...which I thought was a reasonable time to ask JUST for a cup of tea..did not even want to eat, and was told the "boy soon coming"....THAT translated into my getting up, going for a walk on the beach (even that entailed taking my life into my hands on the rickety stairs down from the property to the beach), returning at 0845, asking for tea AGAIN, and being served at 9:30am. The view for that tea sipping was an abandoned concrete "hut" of some kind that is filled with garbage, and to my left a stack of old bottles about 3 feet high.

Immediately called my guide to get me out of there...and he said he would be there at 11am. Went up 3 flights of stairs and collected my things. THERE WAS NO ONE AROUND FOR ME EVEN TO ASK FOR HELP WITH MY SUITCASES... so I brought down the first one...by then there were five men...I won't un-dignify the word gentlemen to use on them, these five men were literally "doing nothing"..they stared at me, a rather short female, lugging suitcases down three flights of stairs, and never even changed the expression on their faces, nor moved a fraction of a centimeter to help.

I consider myself a pretty adaptable and tolerant person, but this was beyond what any person should have to accept.


Not clean but cheap
460kismet [TA], , Bentota, Sri Lanka

Hotel is not clean much more. Always facing problems with sea breeze. Rooms are not sea view. Only 2 rooms they had with sea view in top floor. But price is very cheap. But you can see beautiful sunset from the beach side in the hotel.
