Normal guesthouse rooms were clean and nice. Price was really good. Location is perfect, so close to beach. The best part is the family who owns the place! So friendly and smiley people. I can recommend this place.

We spent 2 nights here in high season and were very happy with our stay. We paid 4000rlk per night for a big room for 3 people, with our own bathroom, fan, towels and WiFi. The hosts were even nice enough to come pick us up with our luggage from the bus stop for free (though it's not far to... More

My partner and I stayed at Calidan for a few days. The guesthouse was in an ideal location- just a few minutes walk from the beach yet far enough away to escape the busy beach scene. The owner and his wife were helpful and friendly and breakfast each morning was very good. Our room, on the ground floor, was incredibly... More

We stayed 4nights there and we liked it. The rooms are really basic but ok, it's really cheap so it's a really good value for mirissa!! We arrive in middle of renovation so wifi was not working and many time electricity cut but they fix everything really quick!! The family is really nice. The only problem was on the morning,...

Spent 3 nights here for a very good price. At first we had booked one room for four people, however realised on arrival they expected 3 of us to sleep in one (very large) bed! We decided to split ourselves over two rooms instead for 3000 ruppees rather than 2500, so only 1500R for a double room. The rooms were... More

We are staying the night there. The owner is nice, even if he doesn't understand many words in English! But the beds were wet, we had only a little light, and only one mosquito net for three. The room is full of mosquitos! But the good thing is that it is close to the beach (30 sec walking) and to... More

When we were here it was off season and the place was pretty messy. The owner Kasun said he was renovating but i don't think they actually were. Our room was clean though, comfortable bed and a mosquito net that we didn't use. We had non A/C room which was fine except the fan was useless. Good location though for... More

This guest house rents out 5 rooms. We had the room on the top floor closest to the street. There is a constant music noise from around the area the whole night, even when we got up in the morning to get to the Whale watching event (which we booked through Speed Liner for 3500Rs a person - good service...

This clean place is run by Kasun and his wife. It is neat, tidy and quite clean. We had the air con room and it was great value for money. For us , we would have paid more to have a small fridge and some hooks on the walls to hang clothes. The wifi is not great in the room... More

We stayed here as a group of 7 girls (split between 2 rooms) and loved it. We arrived late to Mirissa and after a quick call to say we were lost, the owner took two trips in his tuktuk to pick us up. His wife made sure we were comfortable and provided us with towels and soap etc. The beds... More
