We were supposed to stay in a different hotel in Negambo, but the hotel was terrible so we found Weligama Bay Resort on the internet and called there and they immediately sent their car for us and accomodated us in their hotel. The communication was very good. They answered all our... More

We were here at the end of the season and so virtually had the place to ourselves. Room (garden villa) was spacious and clean, although there was a line of ants on the bathroom wall. Nonetheless, plenty of room, air con, large bathroom with bath tub and separate shower. Fresh juice and towels on arrival, lovely setting (except the horrendous... More

We stayed here for one night as we wanted to go whale watching the next morning in Mirissa. On arriving it looked ok. We were served a cold drink in reception and a towel. On entering the room we noticed the towels were very dirty. Like they had been used to clean the floors then washed and given for general... More

Great hotel, the best cuisine on the island, beach was clean, nice staff and friendly manager. We had no problem, our 4 nights were best nights on the island. Navic pro neznalé Čechy je výhodou česky mluvící managerka... Miluje čokoládu a gumový medvidky, tak si je přibalte ;)

In need of a relaxing few days in Sri Lanka this hotel met our requirements. It is in a great location on the bay and the rooms have lovely views out to sea. The Marriot construction next door is very large, but over the 4 days we stayed no work was happening on the site and it did not affect... More

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
