I stayed at the Samaru Beach House together with a few friends in July 2013. It was the last station of our round trip, just a few days at the beach to relax before flying home. And it was truly a nice experience to stay here. The manager of the house was most welcoming and helpful in every matter. He was extremely friendly and gave us a very good price on the rooms - without even asking for it (by the way, this place has great value for money even if you pay the regular price!). The food at Samaru was fantastic! We were all really surprised to see a small guest house like this featuring such a superb cuisine. Probably some of the best food I've ever eaten in a hotel in Sri Lanka. The sea at Weligama is quite chippy (especially in summer, should be better in winter), it's a paradise for surfers and everyone who loves jumping in the waves. And I need to mention one thing: Beware of the sand flies in that area! We were bitten by these tiny creatures while lying on the beach and two of our group had their legs sprinkled with red spots which itched and stayed for weeks. Of course, this is not the fault of the hotel and does not diminish my oppinion about it even a bit, just take care and make sure you apply some insect repellent while lying on the beach. I do not know, whether this is just a seasonal problem or restricted to that particular area. Maybe we were just unlucky.
To sum it up, we had a great time at Samaru and enjoyed every bit of our stay. Make sure you stop by here if you plan a trip to the south coast!
