Silan Mo is very well situated opposite the beach at Mirissa. The rooms are clean and spacious although a bit 'tired'. The bed was comfortable but the pillows definitely need replacing. It was like sleeping on a football!
The staff were very attentive and friendly and packed us a breakfast picnic as we were going out whale watching very early.
The roof top pool area is spacious although quite a walk up the stairs as there is no lift and they also have a private beach.
Recommended as great value for money.

Really friendly staff, and awesome location right across from the beach. Clean and book exchange also. Breakfast was pretty decent too. Try the mirissa eye restaurant on the beach for some really good grilled prawns!

This was our 6th hotel in Sri Lanka. My fiancee and I stayed at the Silan Mo for 3 nights. The hotel was across the street from the beach, it was unique in its architecture and the staff was very friendly. The rooms have a nice view of the ocean and a large balcony. They were also clean and quite spacious. The hotel also has a nice private section on the beach where you can get chairs, umbrellas and food/beverage service. The pool was a bit disappointing though. It is located on the roof of the hotel in an awkward spot. There wasn't much for pool chairs because many were broken, there were few umbrellas and overall it gave off a "concrete" atmosphere. Although you are on the roof, there is no view from the pool of the beach and the ocean. As well, the water is quite warm...so if you are looking to "cool off" you may want to use the pool shower. However, the roof is great to watch the beautiful sunsets of Mirissa.

Do not go for the bed and breakfast option when booking. The breakfast was not appealing nor very good sadly. There was a minimal selection and an abundance of tiny fruit flies all over the fruit!!! However, the restaurant food is quite tasty and at a reasonable price. We had dinner there twice. The service can vary but overall it was pretty good.

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The few negative points above did not negatively affect our stay. We would recommend Silan Mo for a stay in Mirissa anytime!

Room Tip: The higher up your room is, the better view of the beach, ocean and sunsets.

Our 5th hotel so far in Sri Lanka and by far the best service we've received so far.
Great location with direct beach access, and allocated sun loungers. Roof top pool is great and the rooms were big, clean and with all the needed amenities.

We stayed at Silan Mo for 6 days and had a very special stay. Firstly, the hotel has exceptional views of mirissa and is just beautiful to watch the sunset from your own big balcony or the rooftop pool. All staff, were absolutely wonderful, from the general manager to the restaurant and maintenance staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We selected the full board option as we thought it was great value to have three meals plus a beautiful clean room included in their price. The food exceeded our expectations as we were served fresh whole fish for most lunches / dinners and were able to try some authentic Sri Lankan food.

Thank you Silan Mo! We all always remember your hotel as that special place my fiancé and I got engaged :)

Very nice hotel. Beatiful view to the ocean. Friendly staff. Restaurant serves delicious food- you must try local seafood. Hotel can manage trips for you. They have very helpful driver (tuk-tuk & van for your choice). All the best to hotel staff, we miss you
