      Awesome accomodation!”
      We stayed two weeks in the New Bay View Villa and couldn't have booked a better place to stay in Sri Lanka! Perfect location with plenty of surf spots in the area, most awesome views, the nicest, lovliest staff and absoluety great food! We will for sure come back and would highly recommend this place to couples, but also single travellers!

      All to be perfect, but ........”
      This hotel could be perfect but it's not really the case at this time. For example, the restaurant's menu propose many dishes but only someones can be fulfil an order. The rooms should be arrange each day but it's not the case. However, the staff seems enough to make the job. In my way, the standard of this hotel is overated.

      Nice view, but hotel is not run well.”
      No cleaning during 3 days. Breakfast was simple. Had lunch once in the restaurant, but was not worth the money. Except for one guy in the breakfast restaurant, the hotel didn't seem to care about the guests. For a hotel at 75 USD/room, you would expect a more professional staffing of the hotel..

      -Friendly staff who are interested in making their guests happy when it comes to activities. We booked surfing and whale watching through them and when we said that we were unhappy with the surfing teacher, we only paid for transportation and board rental and were promised their best instructor for the next lesson (and they delivered). -Rooms are spacious, clean and nicely prepared -breakfast was disappointing: we asked for Sri Lankan and got it for the first day. I assumed that we would get the came for the other days, but we only got toast with jam and eggs :-( -dinner was okay, nothing special, bit pricey

      Good - but could be better”
      First, the positives. This hotel is beautifully located and within easy reach of Weligama town. The beach is pristine, the waters are clear and the views are fantastic. The staff are also friendly and the seafood is good. A couple of negatives, however. The room we had was very poorly ventilated and therefore stiflingly hot, with the overhead fan having absolutely no effect. We had to keep the front door and the balcony windows open all night in order to get to sleep (a distinct security risk). There was an air conditioner, but this costs US $15 a night to use - an exorbitant fee that pushes the room rate way beyond its worth. In addition, the television in the room did not work throughout our 6-day stay, despite repeated assurances that it would be seen to.

      Not a real beach in front of the hotel”
      The morning pancake for breakfast was fantastic and the staff was very friendly
      We discovered that the door lock of our room was broken when we arrived and it took a long time to repair while we had to wait for them to be done. The beach in front of the hotel is ok for a quick dip in but the water almost reached the steps which makes tanning on the sand impossible (there are some beach chairs on the first level though)

      perched right on the cliff over looking a lovely quiet beach with turtles swimming in the mornings. Very friendly staff and extremely clean. The dining area over looks the beach but has rather a lot of flies on the mornings and mosquitoes.

      Poor Value for Money”
      Food is good, Reasonably priced food
      I booked 3 rooms for 2 nights based on the "good reviews" I read. Big big mistake. The moment I arrived, I was told that 2 of the 3 rooms I booked has no air-conditioning. He pointed at my hotel booking voucher and said, you see "Double Room with Sea View - Ground Floor" means no air-cond. Then, he continues to point at my other room voucher and said "Double Room with Sea View and Balcony", got air-cond but need to pay USD15 per night to turn it on. It will help to differentiate the title of the room description to make it clear about the hidden charges to expect. The "villa" is accessed by a tiny alley off a dark and quiet road. There's a very small rocky beach in front of the property which is good for dipping your feet. The floors are sticky and the floor rugs look like they haven't been washed for a while. If you are 180cm and above, your feet will hang out of the bed. All the rooms do not have windows. It has a "balcony" door which opens into a common corridor. Which means if you open your "balcony door" when you don't have the room with air-cond or don't want to pay extra to turn on the air-cond for rooms which have air-cond, people can just walk into your room while you sleep!! In short, you will either have to upgrade to an air-cond room AND pay extra to turn on the air-cond, or close the balcony door for your safety and sleep in a room with no ventilation. Women travellers should think twice about their safety. The food was probably the only good thing I have to comment. We had dinner there for 6 people and it was surprisingly tasty at a reasonable price. In desperation to get our old parents settled in comfortably after a long day of travel, we had to agree to upgrade from ground floor to the 2nd floor for USD10 and on top of that, pay extra USD15/room to turn on the air-cond. After a very lousy encounter upon arrival, we decided to leave after the 1st night even when we already paid for 2 nights.

      Service - very friendly owner and staff, Room - clean, spacious and well equipped, View and small beach - made it easy to 'stay in' and relax
      I would recommend Bay View Villa to any visitors to the area. It was one of the better places we stayed during our travelling around Sri Lanka. The staff were helpful, the food was good, and the rooms were well equipped. We were worries that the location was a little out the way but in fact this did not affect us at all. You can walk to 'town' if you want, and tuc-tucs are cheap from the hotel if you don't.

      This place came recommended by a friend , we were in 2 minds before booking the room as the location seemed lil remote .. But was the best desicion we took ... The owner suresh made us feel like it was our own home and even took us out sightseeing for a day ... The staff are very efficent and made our stay feel as though we were staying in a 5 star resort ... The room has the best view an u can wake upto the sound of the ocean ... Will definately be back soon ... Thanks again for making our stay wonderful
