Very much enjoyed. Very friendly staff and courteous. Lovely location and good food. Very good for surfing, even though I didn't do. Well maintained rooms, pool. Would recommend for a family stay. Had a good time.

This was the second time we went to Weligama Bay Resort. We were just as happy as the first time. The hotel is not perfect, but both times we enjoyed our stay nonetheless. The food is great, although sometimes you need to wait a while. The rooms are nice and cosy. Perfect beach and sea for swimming and surfing.

We stayed for 2 nights in the off peak season so we felt like the only people there which was a bit weird. I'm sure during peak season there would be much more atmosphere. Nonetheless, the room was adequate and hotel resort nice. Would've been nice to have an upgrade seeing as nobody was about. Cleaning staff knocked on our... More

We stayed here because it was closest to the harbour where we were booked for whale watching the next day. We arrived quite late at 7pm and were asked to bring our own luggage up to our room because the receptionist was alone that evening. We were appalled having just driven 8 hours from Nuwara Eliya's Grand Hotel which provided... More

The property--the gardens, the beach-sdie pool, the cottages, are all very well done. But for vegetarians, there is very little choice of food---except at breakfast. Further, they provide just one litre of drinking water per room per day--and they do not offer refills/replenishments easily ! When requested, they advise guests to use the water from the bathroom tap for making... More

I stayed at the Weligama Bay Resort in April of 2016 for work, but it most certainly felt like pleasure. The staff was attentive, the small hotel was lovely and had a great tropical feel. Good WiFi throughout the property. I recommend a visit.

Nice clean rooms and polite staff. The villas are the best option. The spa is good with capable staff. Food is basic. As this was off season the hotel was empty apart from us and our friends so difficult to judge what it will be like during busy periods. The view and privacy is ruined by the ghastly looking ten...
