Quite a good place to spend an afternoon on the beach front but do not expect any form of sophistication. Staff are helpful and friendly but lack basic knowledge on most items. Place could do with a proper clean up but overall the same standard as the rest of the places in Mirissa in general. We had a great table... More

There is a pool. Not super clean but clean. Stuff very kind and helpfull. Manager is a perfect man, worked for 14 years at Dubai. Ocean is nearby, only 10 meters from the hotel. Breakfast is the best in Srilanka. We were in 5 different hotels in srilanka and breakfast is really the best. In a day of leaving we... More

Yes all the other reviews are accurate. The place is on a beautiful piece of property, is a little run down, the staff are fantastic and friendly. The only thing I have to add is that the pool was in terrible shape when we were there. The pool was cleaned every few days, we never saw anyone adding chemicals to... More

We booked this hotel through Agoda, paid for it 3 months in advance and showed up on the 1st of January after a long journey for a relaxing stay in our deluxe room. The staff immediately asked me if I was Sri Lankan and when I answered yes, the manager and the owner informed me that there was a problem... More

Very disappointed with this very rustic, run down and neglected hotel that is in a perfect location right on the beach. Clean room was reasonably well appointed with a great view over the beach, however, the "white" mosquito net over the bed was absolutely filthy grey with dust & grime. The pool area was very sad as it lacked consistent... More

i stay here for 3 days and I love it. It is rustic but cute and the service is awesome. The people working in the hotel we super helpful and always ready to offer suggestion or make your stay very pleasant.

This place offers a nice, neat, clean room...right on the beach...the views are spectacular and the service guys try really hard. It is not luxurious but neither is the price...this is an honest cheap and clean spot to stay...with the best location in town. If you avoid the western options the food is great and cheap...with the exception of breakfasts... More

We checked into Sun Set only after a chance viewing of one of the rooms for families overlooking the pool and beach. The rooms were clean. There was a mini-fridge, television, mosquito nets and a bath and shower in our room, plus a outdoor balcony area overlooking the pool and beach for the evenings. It was very orderly, tidy and...

Great location. staff do their best. it looks like the hotel is not finished. Some rooms can better clean and better finished. Prices are actually too high. If you are not satisfied, there is to negotiate with the manager. This manager has worked in Europe and know what european guests expect.

I stayed here only for one night as I was traveling on a budget. There are much cheaper places to stay at Mirissa beach. But if you're not on a budget or if you have been staying at cheap places a lot and you want to treat yourself to something a bit nicer and more luxurious, this is it! Very... More
