We stayed at Hotel Silan Mo for 4 nights in April 2014 and couldn't have asked for a better hotel at such reasonable prices. The staff are all lovely and welcoming - the restaurant staff are so lovely and the boys that helped us take our suitcases up to the top floor (lots of stairs!) where we stayed were so... More

At the beginning we were very pleased with the hotel: clean large room, excellent view for the ocean, very close to the beach, nice breakfast, reasonable prices. However, we had unfortunately ordered laundry service for two pairs of off-white trousers. What we got back on the next day were two pairs of pink trousers with hardly any stains removed. When...

We were on the top floor of rooms which is a bit of a climb. You could get a decent view from pretty much any floor though. The rooftop pool is nice for a sundown drink with the waves crashing over the road on the beach. The breakfast was basic. The reception staff were great though - very helpful.

Me and my friend traveled around Sri Lanka for 8 days in March this year and had such an incredible holiday - we ended the trip at Hotel Silan Mo - we loved Mirissa beach so much we explored a few beaches and it was by far our favourite as it had a lovely chilled vibe with delicious sea food...

Came back in 2014 following a good stay in 2013. I really like Mirissa and Silan Mo. The rooms are big, has a big balcony, excellent view, and a nice pool on the top. Only complaint is there food. Breakfast is limited and their dinner to pricey. Some may prefer a hotel on the beach, but Silan Mo offers a... More

Spent two nights in this fine hotel. Its location, across the road from the beach, is convenient for couples craving for tranquility after à busy day (or night) on the beach. The staff is very friendly and can help you organize tours and activities.

Just across the road from the beach. You can see and hear the ocean from your balcony, but you aren't so close as to be bothered by beach parties int he evenings. Good hearty breakfast buffet and helpful staff. The rooftop has a pool if you don't want to swim int he ocean for whatever reason. The room was large... More

We got a room on the top floor which required climbing 7 sewage smelling flights of stairs everytime we went to our room. The room was basic but ok, the a/c took 24 hours on full power to cool the room and there was a window from the hallway directly into our shower room which was ridiculous! Only 2 tv... More

Enjoyable 3 night stay. Came to this area for the whale watching and chose Silan Mo because the reviews were good, it has a pool and air con which was vital in the mid March heat. I didn't actually use the pool because the roof terrace is a bit of a sun trap and it was wicked hot up there.... More

We were on a 6 week tour of Sri Lanka and stayed here for 4 nights during our last week. This is a lovely hotel with clean, spacious rooms with private verandahs and lovely staff. The unusual design means that the rooms have their own privacy and also reduces noise from other guests. The Silan Mo has a nice restaurant... More
