Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed over Christmas and New Year having extended our stay a number of times because it was such a phenomenal place. The rooms and clean and well furnished with lovely showers and great balconies that give a beautiful ocean view. If you want the best location on the beach in kalppittiya then this is the number one choice, we drove all over the place and each time came back happy that we thought we had the best beach side resort to be found. They have these wonderful beach front cabanas that you can chill in all day and a brand new pool as well if the sand is too hot to walk to the ocean. Fantastic location, fantastic food and fantastic service and hospitality. The staff were all superb. Friendly, helpful, welcoming and also great fun to talk to and hang out with around a beach bonfire and some arrack! Cannot rate this place more and the entire area is perfect for everything you need in a Sri lankan beach paradise. Been living here 9 years and wondering how I never went before! Will be going back repeatedly from now on. Thanks to Norman and Nilantha our great Chef and lovely lady who took care of our rooms. Great place with great location great rooms and great food. The one thing we ask for is please switch to non plastic straws! Overall it made our Christmas and 2020 one of the best holidays ever. See you all in a month or two!

There was nothing that we didn't like about this hotel - the food, the cleanliness, the staff, the fact that we could just 'stroll' into the sea for a morning dip - I would honestly recommend this hotel to anyone - oh, and we also had a fabulous Dolphin display which, of course, the hotel manager had 'arranged' for us!!! Lovely pool to also have a cooling dip in. Such a relaxing stay. Going back as soon as we can!

Greetings…
Thought of writing a review about a wonderful stay @ the wellawadiya
I personally believe that a review shod have its goods as well as the beds. So I thought of starting with the downs first
We stayed at the wellawadiya for 3 nights I know it’s a shorts stay to have a opinion about a place but this is what we felt. There were 4 of us and we enjoyed our stay at the wellawadiya a lot
To start with we really enjoyed the view the only down side was from the main restaurant you look out all you can see is two huge trees that covers the whole view of.. If we cud just sit at the restaurant and see the ocean it would have been out of the worlds..Then a gene that’s my opinion
Out of the 6 meals that we wear served 4 got delayed. That needs to be fixed.. The guy who was serving us was running up and down trying to sort it out but there was so much he cud do.. When we ask dinner to be served at 7 pm we expect dinner to be served at 7 not 7. 15
Those are the bad sides..
Now the good stuff..
The rooms were simple but neat and clean.. The beds were neatly dun and very comfortable.. the restaurant was clean and neatly kept.. The please was very peaceful.. That’s what we look for when we travel.. a place where we can relax and unwind..not another Hilton or a Sheraton
The person who took care of us was Luke I think he was the manager of the place.. he laterally took care of us from the time we walked in to the time we say good bye he was there.. he looked in to all we needed from tok took rides to the town to dolphin watching trips to saving all our meals .. we have been in sri lanka 3 times before this is the 4th time and we have never met anyone like him .. he was very polite and professional and always had a smile in his face.. he was thare from 6 in the morning till we went to bed I think that is personalize serves
Thare was other staff in the hotel but they did not interact with us.. Maybe there was a language barrier.. witch was a shame .. Luke cud have used a lot of help..
All and all Wella Wadiya is a beautiful place where you can relax and unwind.. Read a book.. And enjoyed a beautiful sunset

We stayed for two nights and Mr Shakthi who managed the resort went above and beyond to accommodate us. The hotel is right on the beach and the rooms and amenities are well worth the price. The beach is wonderful and you can request kurumba off the trees right there on the property.

We stayed as a group of 4 for 3 nights in February and had an enjoyable stay.
Welle Wadiya Beach Hotel is clean and comfortable on a beautiful stretch of beach.
We loved swimming in the warm sea, the food was great and most of all, Luke was most helpful.
With a few tweaks such as more sun beds, this will become a gem

Checked in and checked out 2 hours later; would have been quicker but we had to find an alternative. Room was very very smelly coming from the bathroom. Safe broken. Patio doors to balcony broken. We thought we’d give the food a try before making a final decision not to stay here. It was almost inedible. The table we sat at was near the pool which was murky looking and uninviting. Whole pool area was dirty, a nasty looking tissue on the ground and sticky table tops. Just the feel of the place was all a bit sleazy. A smell of ganja didn’t add to the appeal for us! To be fair we are probably not typical of this hotel’s usual customers, being in our sixties and not being there for the kite surfing.

We stayed at Welle Wadiya over the long weekend and had a fabulous time. This was my first trip to Kalpitiya and I loved the experience. The beach was spectacular. The hotel has 6 rooms and its ideal for a family / friends get together. The food I must say was exceptional. A must try is their Crab Curry with Murunga Leaves with Roast Paan. Hotel is kid friendly. Keep up the good work Welle Wadiya Team. We will definitely visit again.

We went with my wife's extended family and it was a BLAST! This resort consists of 06 rooms but all amenities are available. We were the only ones occupying the resort so privacy was at it's best.

Kithsiri the Caretaker was excellent. He genuinely wanted us to have a good time and he made every possible effort to do that and he got it right every single time. The cook Uncle Gunapala was excellent. I love my food and he got it right every single time. The food was out of this world!! You should definitely try the crab curry! The BBQ was perfectly cooked. There was another lady who assisted them who was very nice as well.

Overall, great vacation and it was very relaxing. We will certainly visit them again and it won't be too long away.

We decided to go here because they seemed to have a lot of positive reviews. But unfortunately in our opinion, the hotel failed to meet even the most basic of expectations. The food was terrible and extremely overpriced. There were no sunbeds or even chairs at the beach to sit at. Even the cut fruits we requested after lunch were unripe. Rooms were alright, although the bed sheet and the pillowcases had stains on them. The only place to hang out wet clothes or towels was a rusty wall mount rack in the toilet that ended up staining our clothes.
We could've managed with the quality of service, cleanliness and facilities had there been decent food. Extremely disappointed at the quality and the exorbitant price for the food. Wouldn't really recommend this place to anyone.

Hello, we are very sorry that your stay didn't live up to our very high standards. The main chef had to take some emergency leave during your stay and we brought in a temporary chef for that week. The issue is now rectified. We are continuously improving the property following the periods of low investment due to covid and economic situation in Sri Lanka.
