Owner offered one of the "cheaper" rooms, which we asked for, but the value was really low. There was a lot of must in our bathroom, so the smell was also in our room. Not really healthy. Moreover, beds were old and far form comfortable. Although the gueasthouse is located at the beach and the owner was friendly, we changed... More

Basic rooms. A little run down. Not the best mattress. Didn't really rate Mirissa as a beach that much either. Maybe I'm just grumpy because I slept pretty poorly in this room. There's mad construction going on right now so don't expect a peaceful setting with the medley of angle grinders, hammers and woodsaws going off in front of your... More

Very cheap accommodation, pretty basic but was clean and comfy. Brilliant location-30 seconds from the beach. Restaurant is nice but staff are slow. However this appears to be the general attitude in Mirissa. Food was good. Only let down was the electric shock I received off the fan, not enough to do any damage but enough to hurt and my... More

Can't comment on the food but the accommodation is very basic indeed, bordering on the austere. Untouched since built I would say. Water supply not available 100% of the time. Much better value and friendliness is to be found on the other side of the road. No real advantage to being so close to the sea.

We ended up staying for 4 nights when we only came down for 2! Mirissa is beautiful and Sun Shine beach Inn was the perfect place to stay. Good value for money and as on the beach as you can get! They also do a excellent Jaffle for lunch to keep you going until the lovely fresh fish is available... More

At 1000/- and 1 minute from beach you can't complain. Pleasant owner and ltd but good value daytime menu. Anyone taller than 5'2 will find the beds very cramped, short and narrow. The mosquito net is completely inadequate. The beach bar sells Lion at 200 and its a nice place to chill but the food isnt up to much, the... More
