Visited this hotel to go to whale watching in Mirissa. Hotel served its propose good. Location is nice, right on a beach. Pool/garden area is well maintained and swimming is possible either in pool or sea (if you know how to deal with waves). Waiters in pool area are not around much, so ordering something could take some time (but it was actually refreshing not to have somebody next to you at same moment when your previous drink is finished).
Stayed in room with plunge pool and enjoyed it. Didnt have any problems with having privacy as mentioned in some reviews here. Enjoyed time after dinner in that small pool!
We stayed on HB basis and there was never trouble on long waiting times or food being unavailable/not good. There were several choices for main dish every day as well. They could be trying to "reshape" their staff as well, since person in restoran who served as was there for just week (brought from other hotel) and felt very confident what he was doing. Seeing orders, he suggested that he could offer as bottle of wine and keep reminder for next evening as well, which was nice twist.
In this area hotel is definetely worth a try. They are impoving!
