Garden Chalet
Stayed 4 nights in December 2016
Disappointing and misadvertised.”
Stayed 4 nights with my mum and brothers - for my birthday. Cannot fault the location- right on the beach, the rooms are basic but clean and the owners and cleaning staff were also friendly. Unfortunately not much else positive to say. The hotel has a pool - for children! It is a kiddies' pool, with the water up to an adult's ankles and not even 5 meters long. There is nowhere to lounge by the pool and most of the area is taken by staff drying sheets and towels! The breakfast was the worst part of the whole stay. I am Sri Lankan born and was appalled by the lack of traditional food. Only cold hoppers and dhal. There was a good selection of fruit (but overripe and possibly the leftovers from day before), toasted bread, roasted bread, plain bread, buns with sugar on,chicken sausages, fried eggs, jam, butter, coffee and tea. EVERY SINGLE DAY it was the same - no variety. The bread wasn't even fresh. The whale watching tour I went on provided a better breakfast and that was on a boat! The staff putting out the food were so unbelievably rude - menacingly stood over the food watching people take the food. one day spent ages fixing the food containers and not letting people get to the food! There are no TVs in the rooms or in fact the hotel and the wi fi does not work. They are building more rooms and whilst I would like to hope they will improve the food and facilities, it is unlikely they will. They are making money by providing the basic of basic accommodation and you only realise after you have arrived. If I had not booked and paid for my stay with Agoda before I arrived, I would have left. I also booked a chalet but fortunately switched rooms. The chalets are right on the doorstep of the hotel - better to stay in one of the rooms, at a lower price. So if you want a pure surfing holiday where you will be eating out all the time, including the breakfast which is included in the price and will just be using the room to sleep, stay here. Otherwi

Just ok, no.frills out of reach.”
The beach, the sand away from the crowds
I stayed here for 4 nights. Initially thought on arrival was omg I'm staying here for 4 nights however I soon overcome the basic setting and colour coordination of the bathroom.. The staff were friendly especially the owner. If your planning a whale watching ride, he has a boat from main harbour. Food, well breakfast wasn't great. I didn't stick around for the any other meal times. Budget rooms were passable however if the property was not on the beach I would class it over priced. Location was 2 km from Weligama and 3.5 km from Mirissa. Easy walking distance to Weligama along the beach or main road however Mirissa was a bit of a distance for some food. No eateries close by only nearly other hotels.

Perfect location, calm and peaceful. ”
The location, the surf, the quietness.
Smooth and pleasant. Not too many tourists. Could surf whenever I wanted and met few Sri Lankan people who were adorable. Which I think, meeting local people in a country is very nice.

greate room, horrible hotel, strange guests”
the privacy, good matress, huge moskitonet, quiet AC
The room was very nice, a little bit small but clean and quiet and the bed had a very good matress. The hotel owner were very polite and friendly. BUT i did not wanted to stay as long as i mentioned to, and checked out straight away the next morning, because the guests and the food were discusting and very typical touristy and everywhere in the restaurant-area were flys and spiders at the wall. i am a backpacker, travveling with my backpack and visited a lot places on sri lanka. Jagabay resort was not at nice, like nowhere else i had been in whole sri lanka. I traveld on sri lanka one month and this place where the worst of all places i have been. I am sorry!

Great location and friendly staff”
Location, rooms and staff
We stayed at Jagabay for six days and we enjoyed it very much. The hotel is located on a long beach with very few other people there but the other guests and some local fishermen. If you like walking on the beach this is a great place since it is possible to walk for several kilometers on it, if you want you can walk into weligama town. There are some waves so we would not recommend it for the smalest children but older children will have a lot of fun in the water. Right to the left on the beach we experianced some rip curls so keep to the right on the beach. The food is good and it is very easy to go to weligama or Mirissa by tuk tuk, there is always one outside the hotel gates. The staff is very nice and looked after us very well, at new year they arranged a great celebration. If you want a quiet hotel located on a great beach, good food, rooms and great value for money we can recommend Jagabay. The negative things we found was that sometimes the food can take a while to arrive but that is a thing common with almost all restaurants we visited in Sri Lanka. Also you need to ask the staff to clean the room

The only nice thing is the beach”
We stayed here over Christmas. The construction site of the hotel kept going all day during the time we were there (4 Nights) though the owner said it would be only one more day...so we had our christmas dinner with the sound of the construction. Some of the stuff were very rude, we had so much better experience elsewhere in Sri Lanka. The food is ok, but it takes a long time to be served. The room isn't very nice considering the price you pay, we had much nicer rooms for less money. The pool isn't very inviting either. The only reason we would come back is the beach, but be careful it's full of sand flies.
