The staff since the moment we arrived bent over backwards to make our stay a good one!

WBR is a tired resort with rooms which need some investment and food that needs perking up. The huge box building of the Marriott coming up next door has further depleted this property's charms.The service though is very good with most of the staff responding quickly with smiles on their faces. The beach is great, especially if you are a...

My wife and I spent four nights here at the start of our two week holiday in Sri Lanka. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and found the hotel perfect for sunbathing, surfing and relaxing. We rented a surfboard which was reasonably priced - the waves were perfect for learning and the water is really warm. The food was nice...

Checked out a day early from a bad choice, checked in here to a bungalow & so glad we did. Clean, spacious, right by beach, friendly staff, great little restaurant, OK buffet breakfast, could have stayed a few more nights quite easily. Would recommend & would stay here again.

I stayed in a bungalow in 2014 and again in 2015, but to my horror it is now overshadowed by a massive Marriot construction directly on its boundary, so there is no privacy or peace. The bungalows are very well equiped, a/c and ceiling fan, tv tea/coffee mini bar toiletries,the bathroom had a bath with shower over and another separate...
