We are looking at purchasing a virtual Windows 2008 R2 server from our ISP, and need advice about firewalls.  

There is not an option of a Hardware Firewall.

The server only comes with the Windows Firewall and i'm wondering if this is secure enough on its own.  We will be hosting our website along with dynamic reports for our clients getting data from SQL Database.

Is windows firewall good enough or can anyone suggest a better Firewall package, where we would be able to configure the ports.

I would advise putting it behind a hardware firewall.  Just because they don't sell one doesn't mean you don't need one.
