this is backpacker standard. do not expect anything than basics. the benefit is the location, very much on the beach, so you can walk or run in the morning, or you can surf as well. they can make very nice smoothie for you. rooms are OKish, non ACed, expect insects and lizards everywhere, but cmon...this is why you are here...

Had the ground floor twin room in main building. 5500 rps without a/c for 1 night. Massive beds, hot water & 2 minutes from the beach. That's all the good I can say. Shutters only on windows,which we could not secure from inside. Dinu's brother letching from his hammock out the front. Old dirty bath painted green & blue. Mould,... More

Firstly, I'm not a picky traveller expecting luxury, I visited Sri Lanka staying in budget accommodation, no frills. My boyfriend and I stayed here for only 1 night after reading a good review in our rough guide. Sadly we didn't have wifi to check trip advisor first! This place is an absolute rip off. We stayed in a non ac... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights, there were 5 of us travelling together and this place was perfect for what we needed. Cheap and cheerful, it was a little grubby but so affordable. Up one end of the beach but still only a few steps before you hit sand! It was a little noisy with music from other... More

First impression was them trying to put us in one of the non a/c rooms. The messed around trying to say that our room was not available (although we booked 3 months in advance). Finally they caved and gave us the room but it wasn't worth the fight. Green slime and mould on the walls, not just in the bathroom!... More

We went off-season (Mid-November) to Dinu's Resort and took the so called 'honeymoon suite', just right to the entrance on top of the big stairs. The room was clean and spacious, for a reasonable price. The breakfast was great, the staff friendly. Looking at the other reviews it seems like other people didn't like it. We can recommend the stay... More

I stayed here back in February and again this October, recommended by friends. This place has a great atmosphere with a restaurant and bar (currently being renovated). Mumma makes the best curry in Mirissa by far and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. The rooms vary in price and yes, unfortunately has mosquitoes, but it's set back slightly off... More

What they charged us for an A/C room in this mosquito pit was simply exorbitant, even for Mirissa. Adding insult to injury, a 10% “service charge” was tacked on to both room and board. Hope it was worth the €3! Maybe you can now replace some of the (no exaggeration) tattered rags used as bed coverings. I won't even mention... More
