We slept like queens in the Swedish beds from IKEA.Had the poolarea all to our selves. Tried most of the drinks. Took tuktuks to the beaches nearby. Had a great time thanks to a lot of helpful ideas from the three friendly owners.

                If you want to be left alone- here is the place for you. The staff are too busy talking to each other or on their phones to give you any service. And if you do ask them a question, you feel you are being rude for interrupting their conversation. (There was one young guy at the desk in the afternoons who did a good job). Also locals are just roaming the grounds or sleeping on the couch. The facilities are rusting and falling apart. Please don’t judge Sri Lankan food on what they give you- as it is very poor. This could be a better place with an update and workers taught customer service. Until then, best avoided, as you do not get value for money at this price point.

                I loved this place. Nice staff, stylish rooms with beautyful outdoor bathrooms, nice garden and pool area. The area around the hotel is not the nicest and the beach across the street is not suitable for swimming. But there are nice beaches just a short Tuk Tuk ride away.

                + Great staff and food -ve’s This is not what it appears on the photos. It could be, but the Greedy western owners are only interested in maintaining their other Escape hotel down the road in Weligama which is more like a 5 star hotel and as it’s on the beach the obvious cash cow. E15 has obviously not been maintained since they took it over a few years ago when the pics you see were taken. Supposed to stay for 3 nights. We left after 2 and got a refund for 2 /3 nights because it was misrepresented in the description on the website and also all the major platforms such as this one, booking.com etc. I have since contacted these platforms to notify them. Ripped bedding, rusting furniture, algae stained canopies over the main seating area.... the list goes on. As it’s in the south It takes over 3.5 hours to get here from our first stay in Negumbo (amazing), and we were devastated. We basically lost 2 days of our holiday coming to this place. The staff are truely fed up at the lack of attention and commitment from the owners. There is only one way to make greedy owners take note... vote with your feet and look else where

                From the moment we walked into this hidden paradise, we almost felt like we were transported to south beach Miami! The staff were excellent at meeting all our requests, and in providing us all the necessary requirements to do other things in the area. The rooms were tastefully done, and the outdoor style bathroom was definitely my favourite! The food was amazing as well. I must make a special mention to our host Dilum who went above and beyond to make sure we had a grand stay!

                Satisfactory ”
                We enjoyed our stay at W15 escape, however were disappointed at the smaller details. The staff at reception were slow, needed to be reminded on certain things. The breakfast staff were pleasant and food for breakfast was delicious. The hotel is great value for what you pay, but small details would make the stay much more rememberale, for example the towels look old. One evening we had early dinner indoors, and left the dishes outside where they stayed until late afternoon the next day. Breakfast chairs and pool lounges are rusty or broken. One point is we arranged our own travel to the airport for a better price. When we went out to load the car and leave the local drivers hired by the hotel were standing around, and once we left our driver told us he was harrassed on hotel property grounds as he was on their "territory". This is happening infront of the hotel reception which is an open space. They should not allow them to come inside and harrass drivers on property grounds.

                Big room, and nice swimming pool
                It is enough to stay by the hotel pool for the whole day if you just want to relax under the sun. The hotel's design is highly inspired with very ultra-modern European concept. All covered in white. The breakfast was great and price for meals is reasonable. Staffs are very friendly with great smile. We love our stay here. However, the management should consider to do pesticide as there are many mosquito and houseflies especially in the outdoor bathroom and in the evenings. We got bitten by mosquito so many times in our 2 nights stay. I do understand the owners are eco-friendly, but they also must appreciate not everyone is mosquito lover.

                It is stylish but slightly shabby - a combination which we loved. It is relaxed , friendly and quiet. The pool is big enough to do proper lengths and the rooms are really comfortable. The outside bathroom is great fun and all adds to the unique experience. The only downside is really the food. Not what we had hoped for.

                We were on our honeymoon and the choice of W15 Escape was a bit of a lucky shot - we decided to change hotels overnight. And we were not dissappointed. The Escape hotel is small - 8 rooms only - but lives up to its name. The rooms are spacious and lovely designed. Minimalistic, clean and very comfortable. There's a garden pool with nice sun beds to relax and a central open dining area. All in the garden setting. The staff is amazing, helpful, smiling and really making you feel like at home. The additional bonus is the free tuk tuk shuttle between Escape and the main W15 hotel on the beach in Weligama - we were making this 10 minute journey at least once a day as the other location offers great surfing and amazing cocktails. The sun beds in beach W15 are also available free to the Escape customers. The one thing to keep in mind is that the kitchen in Escape is pretty small so the selection of dishes to eat in is very limited.

                After a few Accommodation disappointments this holiday resort was a late arriving Godsend. A very modern furnished, large and bright room with a massive twin set of double (party size) beds. Outstanding menu and roomservice. Great funky beach decor and very pleasant surroundings. Could use a larger sign on the main road to assist in locating the venue. No bath but a massive double open-air private shower - plenty of room for a couple (and then some). Air Conditioning in the bedroom seemed to be working very hard and had no low setting - got a little cold and annoying after an hour or so. Simple Breakfast and toast was only white bread, could be a nicer touch to make wholemeal or grainy bread an option at a Spa & Health Resort. Attentive staff, free welcome drinks of Mint and Lime was a superior touch. So much so we reordered the same for breakfast and was then charged a full "alcoholic cocktail" menu price - but it was very good. Would only come back to Galle if we could stay here again. Mad Tuk Tuk drivers and narrow, windy roads took the toll of our sanity.

                The property is nicely designed, quite and green! The rooms are very bright with a minimalist interior design. Having the bathrooms outside is somehow strange, but a good experience. Breakfast / food on the menu was very good (but pricey once you add up all the additional taxes and charges). The hotel doesn't have a direct beach access. However, the hotel provides tuk-tuk to go to their other property W15 where they have a direct beach access with surf lessons, swimming pool, bar, etc (and it is a few minutes away). Staff is super friendly and helpful. My friend and I were very pleased we chose this hotel. W15 is a bit more lively compared to W15 Escape (W15 has a DJ playing late afternoon / night). Overall, we would definitely recommend staying there (W15 and W15 Escape). Team was amazing! Thanks again!

                Calm and beautiful place”
                Such a beautiful place, everything is well designed and super comfortable. It gives us a feel like private villa, where we stayed two nights in our Sri Lanka trip. Away from hustle and bustle we enjoyed our stay very much. They will cook whatever you want to eat which is a big plus. And they also provide transportation to their beach front hotel located in Weligama Bay. So it's a win-win situation for us. Staff persons and chef are very helpful.

                W15 Escape in my opinion is just fabulous. A little oasis of calm. The garden rooms were just wonderful, complete with an outdoor shower which was lovely. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The staff could not have been any more helpful and the food was delicious. The breakfast served here was by far the best I have had in Sri Lanka. Highly recommended
