Everything was wonderful apart from the cockroach in the room. Staff were quick to rectify the issue.

Beyond expectations
We did not expect anything from the hotel as it was very last minute and the best choice according to other reviews! But when we got there it felt like a mini palace! We loved it, and would go there again!

Perfect place to unwind.
Eraeliya is a truly boutique hotel. It was our last stop of a busy 5 week trip and the perfect place to unwind. Everything about the place exceeded our expectations, exuding quality and tasteful design. The owner (Anna) and staff (Julia, Jerome and...) are to be commended for their attention to detail. Expect to hear "yes" and "of course" often. Meals are prepared to order and served on one's own patio. Breakfast is extensive and the dinner choice is ample, delicious and reasonably priced. Alcohol is not served but is allowed, so guests can stock the minibar from the local wine store. Tick! Eraeliya is a short tuk tuk from town and other restaurants (try Akila's). We shared the gardens and trees with monkeys, iguanas and squirrels and went to sleep to the sound of rolling ocean waves. We WILL return.

Wonderful and relaxing villas
Wonderful relaxing stay. The Villas were incredibly decorated, and the entire grounds were beautiful. All the staff were so lovely and went the extra mile for any small request. The food was delicious - a short and sweet menu but each dish was fantastic. The breakfast spread was absolutely fantastic!! A perfect spot to relax and unwind, and only a few mins tuk tuk to Weligama Town, or about 10-15mins tuk tuk to Mirissa Beach.

Excellent family get away
Fantastic location and brilliant boutique hotel right on the beach in a very private setting. We arrived late and did not have anyone available to show us our room or how to order breakfast, WiFi password etc which would be an improvement. Otherwise an excellent holiday location.

Outstanding
The villas are beautiful, scenery is stunning and staff were super polite and did everything they could to make us comfortable. Lovely, lovely place, very peaceful. Food was lovely and very reasonably priced compared to the other (high end) hotels we stayed in in Sri Lanka, we had two dinners and one breakfast and everything was great. They do special dinners too - catch of the day and a lobster dinner which we didn't get chance to try but that looked good!

Service to match high price would make it amazing
Eraeliya villas lives up to the expectations in the photos - it really is stunning.The high ceilings in the upper rooms in the main villa mean that the room feels even larger and waking up to the sea view every morning is wonderful. Unfortunately the service doesn't quite live up to the beauty of the property, or, more honestly, the rather high price tag. - Breakfast is ordered the night before and supposed to be delivered to the room, at the time you specify. We stayed for 6 nights and breakfast was only on time twice, arriving anything from 15-30 minutes after the time you requested. No big deal if you are just lying by the pool, but as my husband had to leave to go diving one morning it meant he had to go hungry. - For the whole duration of our stay there was only one room key as the previous occupants had apparently forgotten to return the spare. I'm not sure what would have happened if we'd mislaid that key - For three days our air conditioning kept malfunctioning. It was ultimately replaced, and whilst the staff were responsive to get it working again, it just became an annoyance until it was finally fixed - When we left reception tried to get us to sign for the full room charge, even though we'd already paid in advance, which seemed odd. When I asked why hotels.com wouldn't be paying the hotel, they backed down When our driver arrived we said goodbye to the group of staff in reception who were chatting amongst themselves. They didn't reply. Sums up the service

Fabulous Resort - But Room Choice Important
The place is amazing, beautiful location on the beach, tranquil, super pool and lobby area in the main villa. The photos are accurate ! Excellent breakfasts, lunches and attentive staff. They no longer offer dinner but give a list of local eateries. No alcohol served but ok to bring own, store in fridge. If you can afford it, choose one of the 4 sea view rooms in the main villa, upstairs probably best as private balcony and dining tables. Downstairs great comfy sofas and chairs too but right on the pool so less private. The family villa looked lovely too. We stayed in one of the garden villas, 'Abalaya' Garden Bungalow for 4 nights. When we booked it was not listed as 'not recommended for light sleepers', so we found out the hard way ! Mariachi band from birthday party at (very) nearby beach kiosk, a massive new hotel being constructed just over the wall from dawn till 10pm. (This is targeted for completion early April - maybe they will have a restaurant ?) Also could hear road traffic from adjacent minor road, some obtrusive when music from cars blaring. There is a small outside table, where breakfast may be served (or in the room) but we chose to eat in the garden with those fabulous views. To be fair, when there were not guests in the beachfront villas we ate at their table, twice, once upstairs, one down. The interior was lovely (as photos but a lot darker - many, blinds to work) but awkwardly located plug sockets. Overall is okay if you are on a budget and bring earplugs
