This is the last stop of our honeymoon. Having read great things about Mirissa and Palm Villa, we are sadly disappointed. Are our standards too high? We booked our room 9 months ago, and expressed that we were on our honeymoon. We thought we would get one of the nicer rooms after paying for air con and sea view. Unfortunately our room is small and not overly clean. Our 'balcony' is not separate from the neighbouring room.. Whereas looking around, some of the rooms do have private balconies. Breakfast was average, with great Sri Lankan coffee. The staff are friendly and helpful. The tables are all sticky though. I took a wipe out to clean ours before breakfast but it was not sticky through dirt but the finish on the tables, melting slightly in the heat I expect. It's nearing the end of our 1st full day and I don't think our room is going to be serviced. No one has asked or been in yet. I think the worst thing about our room is how much we can hear from the room next door. You can hear water running, coughing and talking. The walls are very thin. Mirissa beach itself is a massive party beach which we didn't realise, we were told by a tour company that it was not touristy and was fairly quiet. It actually resembles something like Blackpool at night with neon lights at all the restaurants and blaring music.. Such a shame this gorgeous bay has been ruined in this way. We have eaten/drunk in a few of the beach bars and service or quality was found at none. We will not return to Mirissa...
