Palm Villa was the best place stayed in during a month in Sri Lanka, rooms were spotlessly clean, breakfast was plentiful and all the staff very helpful. Its at the quiet end of an amazing beach, about a 10 minute walk to along the beach to the bars and resturants. Recommended.

Room Tip: Worth paying the extra for a family room with balcony.

Perfect Location, Frendly staff, Good Service. What is the most important we pay 26$ (exclude breacfest) per room for 2 person. For this price it was best option in Mirrisa, in May 2013. Quality and delicious food. Amazing seafood

From the moment you walk through the garden & see the ocean on your doorstep you feel at home. The staff are amazing. Can't do enough for you. Food is superb. Beds are comfy. Wish I could live here. I have an ocean front room & I recommend it if you love hearing the waves crash.

Lovely guesthouse with great food, friendly people and spacious rooms. We had the cheapest, non-A/C room, right on the beach with chairs to relax and read on, and hammocks and loungers in the garden. Very quiet place (except for those noisy waves!), but close enough to the centre of the village should you need anything. Would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Non-A/C rooms are the closest to the sea, but try and not be right next to the restaurant if you lik...

We paid 25€ for 'garden villa' for 2 person with breakfast. For this money this is a great deal. Out room had fan and no AC, but it was still reasonable. The location is perfect, right next to the main beach with many other bars or activities. Breakfast was delicious and big. The best idea is also to have lunch and dinner here, because prices are reasonable compared to the other offer and food is very good. Rooms look nice and clean. For the ones who really need, you can take the one with AC. Villas have direct access to the sea, where you can swim easily, without the big waves or strong current. You can also spot turtles swimming in this bay through the day.

Definitely the best place we have stayed during our 22 days Sri Lanka trip!

Mirissa is a good beach location for snorkeling, surfing and relaxing. The Villa is nicely situated in a private bay just around the corner of the busier main beach. And without a doubt the most beautiful place on Mirissa Beach. It has beautiful white spacious rooms with grey cement floors, and there is much time spent on the décor which has a French touch. There are three rabbits, two cats and one cute dog running around in the idyllic flower garden. The dining tables are nicely placed in the shade under the palm trees, right next to the sea.

The food is also very good. Without a doubt better than the food in the beach restaurants, and also cheaper! We are still dreaming about the fantastic grilled Sri Lankan style butter fish which Gamini - the chef – prepared for us. Marinated in tomato sauce and herbs, completed with garlic butter sauce and off course rice, French fries and vegetables. We still cannot believe we just payed 6 dollars each for the best fresh fish diner ever.. Important note though, the food is good but basic based on their opinion on what tourists like. We asked the chef to prepare it hís Sri Lankan way, and this point the food started to get better and better.

Also the service was good, has a nice family touch. Rooms are cleaned daily.

Highly recommended.

Pretty basic room but excellent location right on the beach. The hotel has it's own outdoor eating area and sunbathing area too if you fancy a day away from the beach. The staff were helpful and arranged our whale watching trip. We were unable to book an air conditioned room about two months in advance of our stay. We spoke to a few other guests who also had no air-con which made us wonder just how many rooms with A/C they actually did have. Our room had a fan but it was very warm - A/C is a must!
