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

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
