Fantastic location. We stayed on a cabana pretty much on the beach. The beach was really quiet and seas calm enough for swimming. The rooms are pretty basic but beds are very comfortable and the staff and the fantastic food make up for that. Cheap and cheerful.

When booking our tour to Sri Lanka we wanted to stay at Mirissa Beach. Our tour driver booked this for us, and this is not even near Mirissa Beach. We didn't spend our time there at all, just sleeping in the room. Overall it could use an update. The breakfast was not very good either. If you want piece and... More

We just spent 4 days at Jagabay. It is very quiet, and very pretty. If you want noise and action, book at Mirissa beach. We slept well, and it is easy to take a tuk at 200rs to Mirissa or Weligama to eat. Or walk right on the beach, and you reach Weligama and restaurants. The food is alright, nothing... More

I had the worst experience in my live, even after travelling all around South Asia and hosting in many different kinds of hotels, hostels, guesthouses. Please, girls/ women travelling alone, don't stay at this hotel. First of all, they overbook the rooms with frequency. At the time I arrived they made me wait for one hour for someone to come...

Little resort right on the beach. This was towards the end of our stay in Sri Lanka and by this time we were quite relaxed. The rooms are nice enough but have curtains at the front with people walking past so it doesn't feel so good for privacy. Beach was fine, right there in front of the hotel, with a... More
