I stayed here with a five-year old boy, and we both absolutely loved the garden with fruit trees, flowers, tanks and bowls (I mean small ponds really) of fish everywhere. There were frogs and monkeys and lizards all around, so he had great fun. We had a cucumber tree growing on our doorstep and a mango tree by the bathroom... More

This place served us raw meat, didn't offer any kind of reimbursement and even got arsey when we refused to pay the service charge. If you don't mind a bit of campylobacter and the odd stomach pump then this average looking restaurant with the same food as everywhere else and overpriced rooms on top could be the place for you.

A great peaceful place to stay in mirissa, just a short walk from the beach. Food is great and good value! And the garden is beutiful we saw apes there and squirrels. We think it could be a good place to be with children. The host family are great!

We stayed at Amarasinghe for 3 nights, primarily for the whale watching. Mirissa beach is horribly busy, bars down to the sea, clearly going the same way as Unawatuna... But this guest house is a oasis of calm in a quite backwater along the river (we saw water monitors, turtles, kingfishers, monkeys and loads of other wildlife. There is a... More

We booked for Amarasinge but on arrival were given a spurious reason for an overbooking and moved to Amarasinge Lodge instead. Here there was a small garden facing a busyish road instead of the lovely green organic lushness we expected from their web pics. The drains in the basic dingy back room flooded smelly sewage onto the floor both nights... More

We stayed in one of the cottages that they offered. It was the most expensive guest house of our stay (Rs 5000 incl breakfast) but worth it in our opinion for a bit of a treat. Great food, 5 minutes to the beach and very welcoming. Clean, comfortable rooms and bathroom.

We were bought with sweet recommendations from Lonely Planet and a nice restaurant that this hotel has, and were very disappointed. Looks like after the place became popular the hosts absolutely gave up taking care of it and are just making easy money. The rooms are shabby, towels old, blankets dirty. Hundreds of dead flies above your bed can spoil... More

The water sometimes flittered off for a minute, but it was hot, which seemed a rare find in Mirissa. The bed was comfortable, the rooms clean, I even saw a staff member cleaning the room and doing a very thorough job, and the room was spacious as well. The owner stated we could pay with credit card, but then when... More
