    Review by Claire Seller from United Kingdom

    Don't book the package deal.

    CONS Cons: The yoga mats were very worn, and the surf vests are used and hung up without being properly cleaned so you tend to wear someone else's sweaty top each time which was a bit gross. Yoga is in the rooftop with no sun cover so it can get very hot and I did classes covered in suncream out of fear!!! I booked the package deal for surf and yoga and for one week I spent £100 more than everyone else not on the package... doing the same thing! I spoke to the owner saying I felt like it was a bad deal but he didn't do anything about it which was a bit annoying. Also, when I checked in i didn't really get any Info about classes etc. I'd come straight off my flight and traveled on buses so I didn't feel very welcome at first. Luckily flossy the surf instructor talked me through everything in the evening and it got so much better from there!

    PROS Pros: Tarika and Flossy were great yoga/ surf instructors. Very knowledgeable. Had such a great time with them. Breakfast was great but it would take a long time to come (don't order if you're in a hurry!) I got upgraded from a dorm to a private room which was good. Lovely location. And usually had the beach to ourselves. Nothing to do in WELIGAMA but you don't need a town when you have such a lovely beach. Also, go to the house next door for dinner!!! Best food and soooo cheap!!! Lovely family and the kids will play.

    Organizer response: Dear Lucy Thank u for the review ! As i explained u earlier ,u wont be able to pay less 100gbo for the package if u take it pay as u gl ,because when u do pay as u go there is more fees and taxes involve ! But the package is created all inclusive ! U should have tried another surf camp which will make ur stay 2 times expensive than our surf camp ! I think its just a mis understood ! I will look in to the construction site and they more likely finished all the cknstruction once we re closed for the off season ! So 2017 october will be ohr ew season ! Thank u fkr the review !

    "Everything at The Surfer was great! The resort was very new, and the rooms were big, modern, and very clean. The atmosphere with fellow surfers was awesome and Lahiru, the owner, was willing to help you with whatever you need. Finally, when it comes to surfing, the beach right in front The Surfer is a great spot for beginners."

    "What a place! The accommodation was great and they have really lovely and friendly staffs! The location was superb and the local beach break wave was perfect to enjoy since it was so close to where you stayed. Lahiro, the owner, has great local knowledge and was only too happy to help. The surf instructors were full of energy and they gave really good advice. Claire, the yoga instructor, gave us a lesson whenever we wanted."
