The place is very well located, 200 m from the beach and in the middle of the jungle, I could see monkeys and peacocks. It's very quite, the breakfast was very good and the owner was really kind and helpful. I had an accident with the tuktuk I rented and he took me to the spare parts shop to get...

We booked this place because it is close to a beautiful small beach where if you are lucky you can also see the fishermen. When we arrived we had to pay immediately before going to the room. After that we realize why: it is the dirtiest guest house I have ever seen! The fact that it is old would not...

The family running this guesthouse is more than helpful in making your stay pleasant and organizing your trips around (and always smiling!). It's located outside the busy Weligama town, surrounded by the trees, monkeys and peacocks, 5min walking from amazing Jungle Beach (or 5min tuk-tuk ride to town for 150 LKR). Simple but good breakfast (egg omelet + toast +...

We loved this hotel for its style, its location and its wonderful staff.Most of the time we used a tuk tuk as a mean of transportation. It was only a 5 minute tuk tuk ride to the town. It cost us Rs.150.00. The breakfasts were really good and very cheap. Definitely go for the breakfast option it's worth it. We...
