If you are after some good tunes, the best drinks in Sri Lanka and a beautiful sun set, look no further. This hotel is run by some friendly Russians with good taste. The restaurant serves really delicious food and makes the best drinks we tasted in Sri Lanka. Thumbs up!

We chilled by the beach, listening to their DJ playing some cool tunes, sipping on some long drinks and watching the sun set. Magic.

We were on our way to the airport, so we only slept there half a night. The room is simple, but clean. Nothing spectacular or fancy. If you on a budget it´s good value. Surf right out side.

Room tip: Try get a room close to the beach, not in the main building but in the smaller "bungalow type"

Clean rooms and Nice bed. Restaurant are serving good food but a bit expensive for being sri lanka. Nice pool and very close to surf since its outside the door. The local staff is very friendly but the european owners could have been a bit more happy and friendly amongst their guests. I would recomend this place for a couple of days in weligama. There is not much to do exept surfing and lying on the beach/sipping beer

Room tip: Try the rice and curry its amazing. Order a few hours before

Viktor, thank you for your review. It is very important for us. Regarding prices in restaurant they are based on quality of dishes and especially quality of products we are using. We bye only fresh vegetables and fish, we do not frozen seafoods so our clients can enjoy fresh and tasty menu. We do not use any taste boosters unlike other local places. Our hotel is based on one of the best surf spots called "Beginners Paradise" so of course people come here mostly for perfect waves. But if our guests want to go some sightseeing or traveling our manager can suggest you some local places worth visiting.Thanks one more time for your staying at our place and positive review. Hope to see you back soon.

Love & Fun for Everyone!

I always stay at this hotel when it was run by previous management under "Neptune Resort Weligama". I still stayed here about 2 months ago as I have been staying here every time I travel to Sri Lanka for the past 5 years and I knew the people there. For the first time, I was utterly disappointed by the customer service provided and the vibe because of the new management under "Good Surf". If you want a budget place with easy access to the beach to surf or body boarding, this is a very good location. The restaurant does not serve meat and the breakfast we had was the worse breakfast I've had my whole life so I would recommend only to get room only if you like to surf or have a swim on the beach and want a low cost place to stay.

I was very sad as the place was like a second home to me in Weligama with the warm welcome and the friendly faces from old management.

Owned by Russian, I did not feel in Sri Lanka at all
Restaurant features European basic food
The hotel will be soon next to the huge horrible Marriot hotel
The owner would not get us body or surf and told us to get them on the beach which we did to a nearby very friendly place
Room was basic breakfast too and if you ask for anything ( a nice to cut a watermelon,they charge you:((()
Wifi only available in the lobby

Room tip: No room next to the road...it is very noisy

Thank you for your review. Our place is really managed by Russians. Hope it is not a problem for anybody! Or you can choose hotel by nationality features. Restaurant is really based on European menu so our guest can enjoy foods which they are more likely get used to. If you can find any restaurant with such quality of dishes and products - just let us know! Local dishes are also served at our place which are approved by Russian chef with out any extreme after-effect. Surf equipment was not given to you because of it was broken or on repair. We are sure it is much better not to give our clients equipment if it is not ready to be used only to get some money from you. That is what Russians consider more honest and friendly policy for our guest. All advanced services ( such as fruit cutting and etc.) is absolutely free at our place. Sorry if you were charged for that. It was our manager mistake and we will discuss it with our staff.

Thanks for your report, anyway. We will take all your complains in to account. All necessary actions will be taken . Hope to see you soon back! We promise to work harder to make your next stay more pleasant and unforgettable.

Love&Fun for everyone!

The Neptune resort was a great spot directly at the beach to relax and enjoy the sun. The owners are really friendly and helping out with all questions such as getting a scooter and tips with what to do in the area or just getting the right surfboard to catch some waves. The local staff also was really friendly whilst serving the well prepared food that was always fresh. The room had a nice ocean view.
