We booked by price decisions; but canceled after a one day stay; as others wrote before: no charm at all; non-motivated staff; very poor standard; we had a room in the main building; no moskito net for the separate bed; there is no area at the hotel to hang around outside the rooms; One pro: very close to the beach.

We had a room in the apartment block and would rate our stay as average. It suited what we needed; a large room for two very close to the beach (it's a 2 min walk). No frills, just good value. We had a fan room with towels, hot water etc. No AC. We also had no breakfast. We did get... More

The Nice guest house described in the other comments disappeared! In the middle of the garden they build a big building and the place Has no charmed any more! The neighborhood is very noisy and we couldn't sleep until 3 am because of the night club on the other side of the road ! No bed sheets and unwelcoming staff... More

We found the accommodation through booking.com. The place looked noce and it was quite cheap. We arrived on friday so it took us about 6 hours to get to Mirissa from the airport - 3 hrs traffic drive just through Colombo. Our room was simple but clean with a comfortable bed. What we later discovered, the indispensable part of the... More

I stayed here for quite a few nights. The owners are sweet. There are bungalows and there is two story building that houses about eight other rooms. The accommodation was simple but exactly what you need. Mosquito nets, fan, en-suite, balcony. My only criticism is the heat in the upstairs rooms... unbelievably hot during the day... that said, within a... More

We found Calm Rest at the last minute. The staff were very friendly and showed us all the room options. The room we chose was clean and comfortable, with a good bed net and hot water. We very much enjoyed our stay here, and it was perfectly located for the beach, which was amazing. We wish we could have stayed... More

All I can say about this place is that it's calm and very good priced. You get everything you need and more (if you ask for it) and considering the location (very close to the beach but not on it) I will definetly stay here the next time as well. The only con I can think about is the cleanliness... More

We arrived in Mirissa without a hotel reservation and tried approx 10 guest houses before settling on Calm Rest. Our room was large and functional, typically Asian in terms of furniture, general condition and cleanliness. The staff were so friendly to us during out stay. They gave us advice, cooked good breakfast and even removed sea urchin stingers from my... More
