I am just coming back from a 10 night stay at Mambo's in Hikkaduwa and had a really great time there. I didn't ment to stay there for the whole time, because Hikkaduwa is a kind of busy place but as everyone in this team was so nice and care taking I always felt like coming home. The rooms are really nice and clean too. If there is anything not working, it will be fixed immediately. If you like good parties you are absolutely at the right place on saturdays. Food in the restaurant is also great and you will never feel alone at the bar having a cocktail. Nice place - nice people - nice holiday!

After hearing so much about Mambo's from a good friend, I had to check this place out for myself (although I was a little hesitant initially as I was travelling solo). I was welcomed at the airport by Mambos' very own Driver, Sampath, who was an absolute delight to ride with for 3 hours from the airport to the guest house
