As long as you know what to expect. This is NOT a fancy hotel. Rita´s is a guest house with what is THE BEST LOCATION in all of Hikkaduwa beach. Rooms are everything from cheap simple rooms with only fan, to super beachfront rooms with balconies with-seaview.. The restaurant is cheap, and not much special, service is slow but friendly....

After a bad night in a small non a/c room in Galle we were now looking for an affordable airconditioned one on the beach. We found Ritas during a walk on the beautiful beach. We were charmed by the location and the rooms showed to us had all we needed. We understood from a women working there we could get...

Couldn't ask for a better location. One with a sea view is money well spent. The room and sizing was perfect for the two of us. Every single person we met at Rita's were supset lovely. Downfalls: shower pressure was useless, bed was hard and they didn't take card for payment.

We had a lunch and a breakfast at Rita's during our time in Hikkaduwa and both were tasty but nothing out of this world. We ate rice and curry for lunch which was very nice and the portions were pretty decent. On the second visit we ate breakfast and had traditional string hoppers with potato dhal and curry and that...

I stayed here with a large group of friends for a weekend and had a pleasant stay. The standard rooms are basic but clean and all we needed for a couple of nights. The location is perfect right on the beach front and a short walk from the night life. The hotel has some loungers which we used on both...

I have stayed at Ritas on a few occasions over the years and everytime I do he has added a new floor or extended further onto the beach. There are now 38 rooms crammed into the space and its getting too much. The beach restaurant roof fell in this year, maybe the gods are trying to tell you something. On...

We did not stay at this hotel but we stopped there for quick dinner after a six hour drive from Kandy to Unawatuna. The hotel location was great but it was very dirty.
