“Paradise”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Stayed here during a 3day tour of Sri Lanka - wish we could of stayed longer!

We had a stunning room with modern deco in the bedroom and bathroom and big French doors that opened out onto the lovely swimming pool as well as superb views of Mirissa beach which was just a stones throw away.

The hotel provides comfy sun loungers on the beach and around the pool. The beach has gorgeous smooth sand and amazing waves in the warm sea!

Dinner was buffet style with delicious fresh fish and meat on the barbeque.

Cannot fault this hotel, its services and location.

Room Tip: Try to get a lower level room with sea views.

My wife and me stayed for two nights at this resort and were simply blown by the room. A superior room with a private pool, open shower and a balcony with a sea view made it spectacular. The service levels were of a high order, they made special food arrangements since we were vegetarians and the last night with candle light dinner was special. It is conveniently located close the harbour and has a nice beach which is quiet with a calm sea. Special thanks to Manoj alwis, the manger at the resort.

We chose to stay here for two nights after seeing the photos on the hotel's website and reading all of the positive reviews on Trip Advisor. Unfortunately, none of these comments rang true for us. We were first showed to a room on the ground floor (room 95) which was dirty and very tired looking. Even the cups had not been cleaned. When we went to find the shower, there was none inside. You had to walk to the back of a courtyard to the outside shower, which I am sure could be overseen be the rooms above. The shower itself was dirty and had worms and millipedes in it!! There was a small plunge pool in the courtyard but am not sure why you would use that when the main pool is clean and much larger. We asked to move to a room that had washing facilities inside and were shown to another dirty room. There was mould in the shower, the mirror and lost its reflection due to the dust and the bin still had the previous occupants' rubbish in it. The new room did not have a safe, which we had been advised to use, so when we requested a safe, a broken one was brought up and dumped in our room.
The next day we went whale watching and noted that many other guests had pre-ordered takeaway breakfasts. We are not told this was an option.
Later that afternoon, sitting by the pool we ordered some drinks, it took over 40 mins and three trips to reception to get a can of coke Coke!
Also the hotel is a distance from the beach restaurants and harbor - so for the price paid, its definitely not worth it.

We were booked in to the Mandara Mirissa as a convenient location to join the whale watching trips from the harbour but away from the bustle of the small town.

We were greeted by friendly service and shown to our room - we had a superb room with an enormous bathroom with jacuzzi, seperate walk in shower and a very large balcony overlooking the pool and sea. The room is very modern,spacious and extremely comfortable and we were extremely impressed.

There is a very nice pool area (which we could not use owing to inclement weather) with a small gate leading to the beach which you enter at your own risk!

The only downside we found is that as we were on "half board" the buffet dinner was quite boring in comparison to other places we visited on the trip so maybe an a la carte option would have been better.

As a base to relax after a morning whale watching excursion we would strongly recommend this boutique hotel but we gather it is very expensive.

Room Tip: A superior room with jacuzzi, seperate walk in shower, massive balcony on the first floor is highly...

It was very adventures here, like temples. a lot of interesting animals and even friendly people. Also the mandara resort is a very nice hotel with clean rooms, friendly personal and a good traditional kitchen, like several currys and so on. We wich to come back as soon as possible. It was beautiful (Lassenay).

Room Tip: All the rooms have seaside< get a room with jaccuzzi, it might be a adventure!
