Nice location next to beach. Was not crowded. Kids enjoyed a lot on the beach and in the pool. A great place to surf.. The food was good. It would have been better if the menu had more options. Friendly staff. It was a nice stay.

This was the end of our Sri Lanka holiday adventure so we will very chilled out which was perfect to do here. The Garden Villas are really big and great for a family of 4. The staff are great and the beach is great for surfing.

Clean and very nicely located. Cins: Only one really which is the lack of communicating with the Staff. Especially in the restaurant because they just don't understand English. Pool attendees are very nice and helpful. Nice place in Welligama.

Nice stay but road noise in room.”
This is a very friendly small hotel with very nice staff in an excellent location. Only one small complaint our room was in the main block near the road which did suffer from road noise (the Sri Lankan bus drivers love their air horns and start using them very early in the morning!) Plaster filled doors and extra sound proofing over the doors could cut this down considerably. If you have booked a bungalow this will not be a problem.

Give it a miss ”
We were quite disappointed by this hotel. The building itself and the rooms are good and the location is fine- it’s nice and close to the beach. Unfortunately it is quite noisy as it’s close to the road (so any chance of a sleep in is limited). The staff really let this place down. The staff are disinterested to the point that when I had accidentally spilt half my sofa water over the table - two staff noticed that had noticed the accident, just went back to talking amongst themselves. I waited around 5 mins expecting someone to come in to assist, finally I had to get up and find the staff to request for someone to assist. This is one example of many where the staff were disinterested, inattentive and somewhat rude. We’ve stayed in a number of hotels in SL which are priced at a similar level and we’ve never encountered such unhelpful and unprofessional staff. The staff attitude made our stay uncomfortable and not particularly enjoyable. Basic hospitality staff training is needed.

The hotel rooms (we had afamily suite) are very large and clean. The hotel is not too large so has a nice feel. Staff is exceptional. Pool is great and the beach right beside. As it lays in a bay its ideal for learning how to surf which was possible from within the hotel. We had dinner once, which was ok, but going out was much more enjoyable, especially to Aloha Cafe

Super relaxing stay with nice stuff”
We stayed there for 3 nights and had a super relaxing time! Hotel is in Weligama and not in Mirissa where all the nice beach restaurants are so a bit off the track but you are in Mirissa by tuk tuk within 15 minutes and 300 Rupien so no big negative point. Beach is super nice (Better & less rocks than in Mirissa). Pool is great and you can rent surf/body boards for a cheap price! Although the prices they offer at the reception (tuk tuk to Mirissa 1500 Rupie and crazy taxi prices) the stay was amazing! We will defenetly come again ! (Also because of the breakfast: fresh pancakes and omelets)

Very bad”
We booked a 100sqm family bungalow with two bedrooms. When we arrived we were introduced to a bungalow with two totally separate rooms which were not even interconnected. They than offered us to move to a one bedroom bungalow and add extra bed for the same price as we paid for the so called family Bungalow. After long discussion they offered a 20% discount on all food and services we buy as a compensation. When we wanted to take a surf lesson the instructors employed by the hotel were to busy talking on the phone and were fighting between themselves who should give up on his phone and go and give the lesson..... On top of that, my Bose headphones valued $400 have disappeared from the room.... I would not recommend to anyone!!!

Garden Villa

Relaxed and comfortable hotel.”
We stayed at the Weligama hotel for 8 nights. We had initially booked a garden villa but due to the open roofed shower which was partially overlooked by the Marriot Hotel next door, we were able to move to a suite inside the main building. Apart from the initial impact of feeling in the shadow of the Marriot our overall opinion of the Weligama Bay resort was very positive. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the rooms were kept clean and well maintained. The access to the beach is excellent and although there were areas along the beach that were a little untidy, the area around the hotel was very clean and well maintained. We ate at the restaurant which was very good and had a wide range of choices. Our only criticism of the food would be the breakfast. It was not very exciting and the cereal and fruit bowls were not covered and open to flies etc. This could be so easily rectified. We would definitely return.

Great place...shame about how the Marriott has tarnished the Bay”
Pros: Great location on Weligama Bay, great staff, good pool esp. for young children, good spacious rooms, good restaurant. Stay here over the Marriott every time. Cons: Very little non-hotel and nearby food options and so expect to pay more with less diversity. The Bay could do with more beach side restaurants. WiFi horribly slow. It'd be a great addition to use the spare downstairs area for a pool table / games area to offer more value for money and more facilities.

Enjoyed the boutique feel and atmosphere of this resort. . Staff friendly, accommodating and very helpful. Especially pool and beach employees and at the restaurant. Breakfast each morning very good and chefs Jerome and Viraj aimed to please even making some special dishes in the morning when we mentioned what we liked. They along with the wait staff were all excellent. Definitely recommend including the bfast plan and the family suite on 2nd floor very comfortable over the family bungalow. Good ocean view.

Quiet and clean resort, a really nice place to escape the smell and craziness of weligama beach. Hotel has its own private beach access that was guarded at night. Restaurant staff and hotel staff were friendly and attentive. Rooms were clean. Price was higher than we expected to pay for Sri Lanka but most places there are more expensive than they should be.

Nice hotel”
We arrived at this hotel and stayed here for 2 nights. It was far from Mirissa beach and we didn't know that until we got there. It was a good stay though. It was clean and pretty. The shower has a good pressure and hot water is available at any time. The bed was comfortable and nice. What I like the best is that they allow night swimming at the pool which is my favorite time to swim. The restaurant is pricey but it was like that for all of the hotels we stayed at. The beach is just right next to you while you eat at the restaurant. The sea breeze blowing in your face while eating. All in all it was an 8/10 stay :)

Right on the Beach”
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel which located right on the beach. We stayed in a junior suite which had a large area in which to sit as well as an outside balcony. The bathroom was enormous, you could have thrown a party in there. A very large shower as well as a huge bath. I would have loved to have had a bath but I did not want to waste that much water. The staff at the hotel are excellent, especially the pool attendant and the restaurant waiters. The only thing I am going to complain about if the food. The breakfast was mediocre and the same each morning. We ate at the restaurant for lunch and dinner on a couple of occasions. One of the dinners was ok but the last one my wife had was inedible, she ordered devilled chicken and she was somewhat surprised that you could actually cook chicken and manage to extract every ounce of moisture out of it. Needless to say that was the last time we ate there. A Tuk Tuk to one of the good restaurants in Mirrisa solves that problem.

What a Lovely Place! and my goodness what lovely people!”
From the second we booked our room the hotel went to all reasonable lengths to ensure that our stay was very very comfortable. I believe that our 4 month old daughter was the hotel's youngest ever visitor and presented a number of challenges. Firstly transport, the hotel provided us with an infant car seat for the duration of our stay to make sure our daughter could travel safely. Secondly bathing safely in a shower, the hotel provided a baby bath to solve this problem and provided a cot for our daughter to sleep in all free of charge. The hotel also arranged for us to get an early check in which was a real blessing as we had been travelling all night.Our room was beautifully made up every day with fresh flowers on the bed and the view from our room was lovely. The hotel was small enough to get around easily with a newborn baby and the pool and beach were safe and easily accessible for us. We really enjoyed our stay and are planning another visit this year if rooms are available.

Good location, excelent beach, good for surfers ( you can rent a surfboard or take lessons if you have more time). The staff vas very friendly. The rooms are big ( we had a superior room with garden view) and confortable. I would recommend that the bathrooms should be clean more throughly. The pool was clean and you can have sunbeds on the beach or by the pool. They need to have more options for breakfast. The food for dinner in their restaurant was good but expensive.

Great place to unwind ”
Really enjoyed the stay here and agree that the neighbouring hotel is an eyesore. You can block it out and it doesn't disturb your stay. Everything was lovely and we really enjoyed the tempura vegetables with a Lion beer next to the pool. Unfortunately the beach was quite dirty north of the resort and not really suitable for swimming as it is full of surfers. We got a motor scooter for a couple of days which let us explore cleaner and more beautiful swimming spots nearby. They put flowers on our bed every day in different colours and arrangements and sprayed the room for insects every evening. The restaurant staff work really hard from early morning to late at night and nothing was too much trouble. A number of people there were return guests so it clearly has a following and is suitable for singles, couples and families alike.
