4 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

I stayed in a bungalow in 2014 and again in 2015, but to my horror it is now overshadowed by a massive Marriot construction directly on its boundary, so there is no privacy or peace. The bungalows are very well equiped, a/c and ceiling fan, tv tea/coffee mini bar toiletries,the bathroom had a bath with shower over and another separate... More

Stayed in one of the rooms in the main building, which was very clean and comfortable. The food in the restaurant was delicious and the staff in the restaurant and bar were so friendly and helpful. Service was excellent. It is so disappointing that the new Marriott hotel is being built next door, and whilst not detracting from the hotel,... More

Stayed in a villa with friends for 6 nights. Had some early teething problems with the bathroom and wifi ( wifi never got sorted in our villa despite multiple discussions with front desk) but the villa was very spacious with good storage and a large bathroom. The restaurant was great - more expensive than most places nearby but high quality... More

It was a shock to find a 400 room Marriott hotel being built next door so there was noise from the site even on a Sunday ...however we had a nice 5 days there and it's worth upgrading to a garden villa which is away from the busy road -most people were surfers! Lovely staff and right on the beach....the... More

We ate at this place yesterday and it was wonderful. I can imagine it is also a very nice place to stay, as well as to eat there. The gardens are beautiful, with a lovely pool that backs on to Weligama bay. The interior of the hotel and bungalows (what we saw) looked very high end. We only walked in... More

Our stay at the Weligama Bay Resort family bungalow was excellent. The rooms are clean, well maintained, large and with the most comfortable king size bed. The location, the pool, the food are all first class. Not to mention the people, smiling and available 24/7. Albeit a little expensive, the Weligama Bay Resort is well worth the money!

What an amazing 11days we spent in the resort. The staff were excellent, helpful and polite. Nothing was too much. If your learning to surf they rent all the gear you need and there is consistent small surf on your door step. The surf has been very busy but mostly in the late evenings so you can normally find space... More

We were in the main building, top floor, in the luxury family suite. It was more than enough room for two kids (4 and 6) and two adults. The furnishings were nice, beds comfortable and beautiful wood floor. An ocean view with a large lanai was great for eating lunch on. There is a nice, tasty restaurant and the included... More

We have stayed in the hotel a week. Enjoyed very much the pool and the great breakfasts as well as the surf point which is located just opposite to the hotel. The rooms are very comfortable. Steady WiFi. Nevertheless the most important part is the hotel staff that would do any thing they can to assist you. Special thanks to... More
