Friendly people, affordable, nice beach, good breakfast buffet. Not very far to Mirissa or Matara. We had a good time at Jagabay and prolonged our stay with a couple of days, which was no problem. Could easily stay there again.

Me, my wife and son just concluded a two night stay at Jagabay Resort. Pros: - you're right on the beach, easy access. - chill atmosphere. Cons: - low quality meals (you'll want to eat elsewhere, especially breakfast - it's the same every day). - Lethargic service. Kusan (sp) the floor manager is awesome (very helpful) but most of the...

The hotel looked like a construction site, the promised pool was cluttered with laundry and had no place for sun beds, the TV had no channels, the staff looks very tired and most don't even give you a smile. The breakfast is very good and the food as well, but the service is so low so we choosed to eat...

Stayed 4 nights with my mum and brothers - for my birthday. Cannot fault the location- right on the beach, the rooms are basic but clean and the owners and cleaning staff were also friendly. Unfortunately not much else positive to say. The hotel has a pool - for children! It is a kiddies' pool, with the water up to...

set somewhere (i imagine) near the border of Mirissa and Weligama, Jagabay is situated in a very quiet spot - aside from the occasional train passing, but its on the other (inland) side of the road, and the crazy Sri Lankan buses zooming by. but being quiet means theres not much places to walk to nearby, except for the other...

It has everything, what you need for surfing holidays - surf station nearby, good room cleaning, rooms choice, full breakfast, clean beach and hotal's territory. Prices could be lower, but, comparing to some near hotels are ok. Location is far from busy Weligama, but good for sport and relax.

The hotel is situatiekaart the beach. You can walk into the sep without a problem. Dont go there of you hate dogs, because they are all over the place. The rooms are big, the beds are good. You can hear the surf everywhere, so you will sleep well. They serve a real nice breakfast with lots of fruits and of...

This place has so much potential as it is located on a prime area of beach, but the structure itself hasn't been built properly. The photos are completely misleading. Once you enter you realize that it has been haphazardly put together, and the building itself hasn't been completed. Also, the pool was anything but inviting, it was so cloudy with...

Jagabay has a lot of potential. This place could be great. The pros: The rooms were actually quite nice. I loved how much natural light was in the rooms. Large bathroom was great. The beach is beautiful, quiet and nice. There are some lovely dogs that run around the property. Some people may find that as a con but we...
