Swam with some giant sea turtles. They ate seaweed from our hands. Be careful they can bite. The hotel was good but worn. Needs a renovation. All was clean, staff was very helpful, food was good. A good beach for splashing around ,plenty of activity outside the hotel.

Building is actually aged being one of the oldest in Hikkaduwa but well maintained. Large beach front garden with sunbeds under the shade of coconut trees.
