We stayed here for 3 nights and found the room lovely, we were on the second floor and our room had a balcony overlooking the sea, The Inn is perfectly placed at the quieter end of the cove. There are loungers on the beach and a swimming pool which looked very clean. Service at the restaurant and on the beach... More

Very popular beach restaurant serving generally good food and a great 4 hour "Happy hour" BUT along with lots of other diners we waited well over an hour for mediocre food, no apology, no concern and then twenty minutes before I had to ask again for the bill. Surprisingly a "non happy hour" drink was brought immediately. I know it's... More

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights as it was the only affordable option we could find over Christmas on the beach. The price was much more reasonable than other similar places on Mirissa beach, so we were happy for that. They even had a triple room and included breakfast. The daily happy hour was a good way to...

Many better beachside hotels than this. No room cleaning and no Sri Lanka food except in the evening when a gang of Sri Lanka beach boys evicted me from my sunset deck chair to set up pop up fish restaurant serving yesterday's catch or older. Great potential - poor management.

Mirissa was our first beach in Sri Lanka and we were at this inn recommended by our driver. We stayed in a room for 4 people and the room was just big enough for that. There were roaches and other bugs coming out of holes in the bathroom and it wasn't the cleanliest place on earth. But you were on... More

We had a wonderful stay in this guesthouse! I will never forget this place, we had our best time in Sri Lanka there. The rooms are cute, the staff is friendly, and the food is delicious (especially the grilled fish)! Thank you very much!

Owner offered one of the "cheaper" rooms, which we asked for, but the value was really low. There was a lot of must in our bathroom, so the smell was also in our room. Not really healthy. Moreover, beds were old and far form comfortable. Although the gueasthouse is located at the beach and the owner was friendly, we changed... More

Basic rooms. A little run down. Not the best mattress. Didn't really rate Mirissa as a beach that much either. Maybe I'm just grumpy because I slept pretty poorly in this room. There's mad construction going on right now so don't expect a peaceful setting with the medley of angle grinders, hammers and woodsaws going off in front of your... More
