This is a great guest house to stay in and recommended, above other places, to stay in the area. The location is perfect for those wanting to surf and it also has the best food in the whole of Weligama and nearby Mirissa (including, the 5* 'Weligama Bay Resort' and 'The Fortress' just before Galle).
We came for a few days and stayed a month. It is mostly suited for those who surf or want to learn to surf. Lessons and board hire available.
The rooms are kept very clean, and whilst some can be a bit dark, we stayed in a lovely top floor, sea view room with a long balcony and were very comfortable. The bathrooms could use a little bit of work, but they are manageable.
Negotiate the rate of the room, as during our stay there, we found out about some big discrepancies in price. We secured a good price though and found it excellent value for money.
The staff is wonderful and friendly - especially Chaminda, one of the owners, who will do everything with a smile.
The food though! Can't rave enough about the food. After a month in the area, you end up eating everywhere, including the top-end 5* resorts in the general area. Nothing compares to Merrill's cooking. Totally can recommend the:
Fresh fish of the day
Banana Pancakes with ice cream and honey - to die for!
We will really miss Samaru Beach House and Weligama!
