We had booked a 3 night stay at this hotel. Finding no vegetarian options for breakfast on 2 day also, we politely asked for a vegetarian omelette. Also asked for basic cutlery that was missing and did not get it even after repeated reminders and after waiting for 10-15 minutes. Soured by this, we decided to opt out of breakfast... More

This is definitely one of the most comfortable and well situated hotels in the Weligama Bay area. We have eaten in it on numerous occasions. It is relatively expensive, but you get what you pay for. The Sri Lankan rice and curry dishes are excellent and other foods equally tasty. The grounds are very pleasant as is the swimming pool.... More

We've spent there a beautiful time in the garden villa which is spacious and very simply but nicely accommodated. The restaurant offers nice variety of food that is really tasty. The staff is very friendly as at most places in Sri Lanka. We simply like it here :-) Only one bad thing is that there is a construction work of... More

We really enjoyed our stay in Weligama Bay Resort. The hotel is located directly by the sea and even has a nice pool arena. Our room was spacious, nicely furnished & clean. The stuff was very friendly all the time, but what we really really enjoyed most of all? The excellent food!!!

Me and my wife we spend in this small property few days after New Year and we have to say, it was just fantastic, over our expectations. We have been travelling almost 2 weeks around Srilanka and always choosed the small boutique and luxury hotels, but Weligama Bay Resort was the best choice. The staff and the Czech Manager made...

We were aiming for a comfortable night's sleep before an early start for whale watching. This is a relatively expensive hotel and looks lovely on the internet, but it's next door to a huge (16+ storey) construction site for a new Marriott Hotel. Construction noise starts at 7 and continues to 6pm - basically daylight hours. The hotel grounds, which... More

Dear customer, thank you for your valuable review on Tripadvisor and your visit in our property. I will forward your comment with the construction point to the Srilankan Ministry of Tourism and Srilankan Tourist Board, they can be properly informed about the way, how the company building the Mariott Spa & Resort is disturbing our business and even our clients....

We definitely enjoyed our stay at WBR (X-mas 2013) - but it is also true that all the roses also have some thorns: Yes, the location is great with the resort being placed directly next to the wonderful (narrow) beach - but you need to develop some kind of tunnel vision to really ignore the HUGE hotel construction right next...

Stayed here for 4 nights in a junior suite. This property, as other reviews have said, has a great location and wonderful views. Yes, there is some construction going on next door (should be done in 5 months), but it did not bother us - you hear the sounds of the waves more than the construction. Best part of this... More
