We stayed here 2 nights in a family room on the ground floor, just behind the restaurant sitting area, which was basically a standard room with two double beds. A bit of a squeeze for 4, but okay for 2 nights. There is a fenced off yard next to the beach with a few tables scattered around so you can...

The old man with glasses - the manager - who works is miserable and miserly. Constantly looking to rinse you of your money and if you don't spend much can be very rude. Not a nice place at all and totally over priced. There are so many much nicer places to stay at. DO NOT EAT OR STAY HERE.

This is not one of the fancy new establishments on the beach but rather a nice surfer hotel, a bit rough around the edges but friendly. We had a supernice 5 nights! I was going back and forth between three and four rating but decided on four as the replaced the entire AC unit after a casual comment from us...

Had an amazing stay, the food was excellent the varieties of curry was limitless. The staff were attentive & very friendly, they couldn't do anymore for us. The manager was very helpful. The bedding was crisp, clean & changed regularly. Location was spot on right on the beach. The A/C was appreciated. The negatives are the rooms were cleaned every...

Basic beachside accommodation aimed at surfers. The staff here are reasonably friendly and the location excellent. I would avoid the food here (particularly the burgers), so better to walk into town; however the espresso better than the average coffee in Lanka. Wifi only available in the bar area.

Friendly, excellent service, could not do enough for us. Even decorated, organised their eating area, and put on a fantastic Sri Lankan meal, for a big group we were with for a 30th wedding anniversary. A/C in the room, bathroom had obviously just been modernised. Complete value for money. We will definitely be going back. As regards to the other...

Aside from other comments on the page my husband and I had a lovely experience at Weligama Bay View. Bertie and Desi are the owners of the place and you can find them daily at the reception to enjoy a talk with them. Heman is the manager and he makes sure everyone is happy. When you are a friendly person...

To start off with my wife ordered a pot of tea. It wasn't bad tea but cost more than it would in the UK and it's grown here! The room wasn't that bad, fan noisy, shower poor and the worst WiFi I have ever experienced. The very expensive breakfast that we saw people eating looked very unappetising ....2 dry slices...

Old but clean, quite and nice hotel. You can find 3 times cheaper place just 5 min walk but without see view and not soo clean. So you pay mostly for location in Bay View - and I think it worth it. WiFi does not work well, in the rooms does not work at all. AC in our room was...

We had a beautiful and very clean, recently renovated AC room on the second floor.(80$ per Night) Ask for those, because the others are not as nice and nearly the same price. We liked the food. There was fresh seafood everyday for dinner, meat, rice salad. As starter they served soup and bread and there is a changing desert every...
