We stayed a week at the hotel last year with our two children and loved it. The accommodation is right on the beach, with its own pool and nice bar/ cafe. It is also really near to the turtle sanctuary, Weligama village, local temples and not far from Galle for day trips. The service at the hotel was great, they... More

Overall very disappointing. The hotel itself was nice but everything else wasn't. Nice room, nice veranda, average pool and lounging area. Poor service and not great food. Lots of flies around the restaurant. Terrible value for money; everything is overpriced and not worth it. The hotel car was an appalling price also but it was worth paying to get out... More

We stayed for 3 nights and 4 days (we arranged a late checkout so had an entire extra day). The standard room was very comfortable with a beautiful bathroom, including large stall shower and a terrace facing the ocean. We ate all our meals at the restaurant that is near the pool and outdoors facing the ocean. Good food. Breakfast... More

We stayed in this hotel for a couple of days and wasn't satisfied with service and facilities at all. First it's a room: the shower was smelly and not clean, the fridge wasn't working at all,the balcony was connected to neighbors balconies and was separated only with a thin wooden curtain (not a wall) absolutely no privacy. Second its a... More

This is a nice hotel, easily the best on Weligama Beach. This hotel isn't in Mirissa. It is on a surf beach where lots of people learn to surf. The hotel is right on the beach, which is full of plenty of surfers. The hotel offers surf lessons. It is a shallow beach with relaxed waves. The rooms here are... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights and had a great time learning surfing. Hotel is located at the beautiful beach with a long line of a shallow ocean which helps to learn surfing without risking your life, especially for children. We enjoyed huge rooms and even bigger bathroom, nice buffet breakfast. Food in a restaurant is OK especially... More

I loved the privacy of the hotel and the fact that there weren't huge crowds or buffets - it's a nice change from most beach hotels around. The family rooms is it's own bungalow whereas the others are two rooms to a bungalow. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The pool is lovely and never overcrowded and you can... More
