This place, close to the rock at least gives the best try 😊. We had lunch here twice and enjoyed an endless number of drinks here. Staff is nice and the service is one step up compared to the rest of the beach. Food is still very average (compared to the other beach places where things are bad or even... More

Mirissa is a very beautiful place but their are plenty of better hotels further down the beach. Service is absolutely appalling, rooms smell of dampness. First room they offered me the AC was not working, second room the TV not working. Ask for anything they don't have the manager will promise he will get it the next day, but conveniently... More

Very beautiful and quite place. Friendly staff and manager. Night view romantic. Deluxe rooms conditions good. Balcony view and swimming pool view great. Food very testy. I like this place. Just go and see how is it.

If you are in Mirissa you should check this out. It's right on the beach and every room has a sea view and great balcony. The rooms were comfortable and clean enough and although not five star they do the job. We loved sitting out on balcony looking at sunset with a beer. Pool right on beach front to so... More

My friends and I stayed here for a few nights on a recent trip and we had an overall positive experience. The highlights of this place are the location (main strip, right on the beach in a quiet area), the spacious room and the friendly/helpful staff and management. Geanta (our nickname for him was Baba J) was basically like a... More

We booked this hotel on Booking.com and from the pictures it looked nice enough for the costly price. As we had been traveling around Sri Lanka for the past week and had paid a lot less for other lovely accomodation we thought as it was on the beach and had a pool then fair enough How wrong we were, the...

This hotel is dirty, dated and unsafe. The room was unclean and my bed was broken, it felt like I was sleeping on a boat. The air conditioning unit leaked over the electrics. The manager lacks professionalism and shouted at a member of my party. Don't stay here.

This hotel was the worst I have ever stayed in, upon arriving in the room the floor was very sticky and the bed sheets were noticeably dirty. The room was very dated with a decentish looking bed which when lay upon was broken and nailed together, the reception and dining area was particularly unkempt, breakfast was crawling with flies sat...

This hotel ruined my view of Mirissa and my time in mirissa!! Hotel run down, dirty, sticky bedroom floors, dirty pillows, insects in bed, air conditioning sounded like it may blow up on top of a television!! Manager has no interpersonal skills, shouted at us inappropriately because we were unsure about a trip we were booked on! He upset me... More
