We stayed in The Mermaid Inn for 2 nights in March 2014 and were incredibly happy with our choice. The rooms were large, incredibly clean and had the most efficient fan of all the places we stayed in Sri Lanka. We were initially greeted by one of the owner's daughter's who was very helpful and sweet. The owners themselves were... More

I was very happy to find this guesthouse. The location is quiet and the rooms are big and clean. Also, very good value. This was my third time through Mirissa, and this was the best guest house I had stayed in for the price. The owner and family took good care of us. A well run place.

We had a wonderful stay at Mermaid Inn. The house is brand new, the rooms are spacious and clean. Before our whale watching trip the lovely owner brought us some tea (at 5:45 am!). We also had breakfast once which was amazing. If you'd like you can also get lunch or dinner, we bet it is a treat, too. It's... More

Beautiful house, Beautiful family. (five minutes from the beach). This place is set right in the middle of the local community in a walled garden, brilliant if you enjoy getting away from the bustle of the beach. The rooms are the nicest and coolest we have stayed in, light and airy with silent fans and immaculately maintained. A large communal... More

My partner and I stayed here for 4 nights. It's quite new and is very clean and was much better value than places just 1 minute closer to the beach. Takes about 6 minutes to walk to the beach from here. The owners are very friendly, we took our room without breakfast but had lunch in the owners house one... More

It's a family owned guest house, with the staff as the family itself (Father, mother, son, daughter). The place is quite new, so well maintained, and very clean. Walkable distance (approx 1 Km) to the beautiful Mirissa beach. Although we stayed just a night, and vacated early morning, it was very comfortable and economical. As we went for whale watching...
