The hotel is right on the beach so guests can go from their room to the waves and back again easily. Unlike most hotels along that road, it faces the beach and not the road so it's very quiet. The space in front of the restaurant is pleasant. The staff is friendly and works hard to keep the exterior neat... More

The owners of this hotel are very rude and greedy. They don't care about their customers. I was a witness when Birty(owner) and his wife kicked out their clients from the hotel with no reason and any explanations. Also the owner forbad staff to serve my friend (his customer at that moment) at the restaurant, and didn't explain why. No... More

The Weligama Bay View does not disappoint - it is right on the coast in the heart of the bay just a short distance from town. Numerous restaurants and the surfing waters and beach are right there. The hotel is clean and extremely friendly. As well as going there ourselves we have recommended this place to others who have all... More

Great place to stay, really! We came in without any pre-booking & we were 1 person more than a room can take. The staff were very accommodating, and helpful. They let us stay there 2. The service at hotel restaurant was slow and sometimes wrong order was made, but that's case in Sri Lanka in general. The place is safe,... More

Do you know those places that you don't want to leave because you feel at home. This is one!! It's perfect for couples, for friends, for longboard lovers, for beach lovers...i guess that it's the perfect spot for your vacations...5 minutes walking from the weligama center, 30 seg from to the beach and 1 minute to the waves... So if... More

We stayed in Bay View by chance as we were looking for rooms next to the beach. What first started with 6 nights ended up being 17 amazing nights. If you want to start the first steps in surfing or if you love long and mellow longboard waves this is it! 2 minutes from your room and you are surfing!... More

This is my second visit. Very nice little hotel right by Weligama surfing spot. Simple but clean rooms with real(personal heater) hot shower, friendly and supportive personnel (be friendly and they will treat you accordingly). The best on spot location available. No loud parties around unlike in neighboring Mirissa. Very good board rental and lessons managed by nice and professional... More

We stayed only one night, the room was very damp and really smelled like waterdamage or mold. Didn't seem healthy to stay any longer. However we had no problems checking out earlier than initially planned. The food was ok, not at all great.

We stayed here for two weeks and I barely felt compelled to leave. We did some tuk-tuk trips to see the local area, but none of the meals we ate out compared to the ones we had at the hotel. The curries were especially great. The service is really good here - everyone is super friendly and I felt like... More
