We stayed at Sunset for a weekend break and I was underwhelmed. While the rooms were clean and of a good standard, the food was below average and the pool was dirty and un-swimmable (disappointing as the reason we booked here was for the pool knowing the beach wouldn't be ideal in the off season). A little bit of attention... More

Located right on the Matara main road Sunset Mirissa is a nice little place which is not the most luxurious location down that coastal belt but I think is one of the better B&B locations which provides good value for money. The rooms and bathrooms were both very spacious and relatively clean. Since we travelled right at the start of... More

We went there in the low season, so not many people were in the hotel. The breakfast was underwhelming. A plate of fruit (which became smaller and smaller the longer we stayed there) and some bread with butter. They advertise the "breakfast buffet" in their rooms, but there is no such thing in the low season. On the plus side,... More

We had been to this hotel during february. Only plus point of this hotel was, we had got the room with beach view balcony. Rest everything was zero. The approach to room was too narrow. The main door was very tight. I had to literally kick the door to open it up and close it. The room was okok and... More

We had a great week here! Staff was really helpful and friendly. The location on the end of the beach was perfect with a short walk along the beach to all the restaurants and bars and still by itself so it was quiet at night and not crowded on the beach during the day. The pool was nice and clean... More

This place, close to the rock at least gives the best try 😊. We had lunch here twice and enjoyed an endless number of drinks here. Staff is nice and the service is one step up compared to the rest of the beach. Food is still very average (compared to the other beach places where things are bad or even... More

Mirissa is a very beautiful place but their are plenty of better hotels further down the beach. Service is absolutely appalling, rooms smell of dampness. First room they offered me the AC was not working, second room the TV not working. Ask for anything they don't have the manager will promise he will get it the next day, but conveniently... More

Very beautiful and quite place. Friendly staff and manager. Night view romantic. Deluxe rooms conditions good. Balcony view and swimming pool view great. Food very testy. I like this place. Just go and see how is it.
