On the beach with a pool and restaurant. It had good service and office staff were helpful. Wish we could have spent more time here. Just a short walk along the beach to town and a quick bus ride into Mirrissa. Learned to surf on the beach outside the resort. Power kept cutting out at night though. Breakfast was not...

Spent 6 Nights here and sadly all the best moments were spent outside the hotel. The welcome I have to admit was really poor. We were welcomed to our room by a lizard. We were then given a different room. With standard rooms that were below standard. The staff seemed like they really wanted to help but they didn’t speak...

Arriving at Jagabay Resort the first impression is not too bad for a USD70 per night resort at the beach. But that's where it ends. The swimming pool is so small that it's more a plunge pool. Besides there is overflow laundry scattered for drying from the adjacent laundry cluttering the pool area. Arrive at the reception which is an...

We stayed here for 2 nights, and there was no welcome. And the restaurant was not clean at all. While we were having meals there were dogs sitting next to our table waiting for food. It wasn’t that pleasing. I think this hotel needs a good upgrade. Nice location but the product wasn’t that great. Owner and the staff was...

We arrive late in the season so the rooms they reserved for us were dark and gloomy. They offered us an upgrade to the rooms they are still working on and we were very glad to take it. Later another family arrived and asked us how things were going and we recommended that they do the same. Because he set...

We only stayed the one night, but it was a nice respite. Overview: surfer style accommodations, with a lovely beach and good breaking waves. Restaurant: not expensive, but not cheap either. Fried rice with egg is about 700 rupees. Beer is 350. Basic cheap food, but you can find cheaper and better if you explore. Room: was nice. We had...

We stayed one night here on the way from Yala to Hikkaduwa. Mostly good experience; no huge complaints. Friendly and helpful staff, one of whom even swapped the toast we didn't want for bacon at breakfast. :) Room was small but comfortable with good bed, mosquito net, fridge, balcony, AC, and hot water. Bathroom had 2 issues: 1) holder for...
