Nice hotel right on a lovely beach. Hotel also has a nice pool with very friendly pool boys. Most of the rooms are out the back across a track with a view of rather unsightly and noisy roadworks. The room itself was pleasant with good WiFi. It was the restaurant that was a problem - consistently cold food as they...

We spent a 2 day visit at the end of our visit . It was very relaxing & enjoyable. But if you don't like to swim around in the pool or the Ocean there is very little activity to do. Wifi is terrible if any . The service is slow. All in all you have to remember that this is...

The hotel itself has a lovely setting. It's nice and quiet, and wasn't too busy when we stayed there. Decent pool and it's a 30 second walk to the beach! The issue we had was with cleanliness - they have a fly problem. We were attacked on our arrival by them. Once we entered our room we were again greeted...

In August 2016 my husband and I attended this hotel as part of our honeymoon to Sri Lanka. The location is outstanding as it is right on the beach. We had a clean and very comfortable room on the first floor looking out to sea. The pool was large and clean and sits between the hotel and the sea. We...

We were given a VIP suite on the top floor which was very spacious, simply furnished and comfortable with view over pool and beach. The bathroom was equally spacious with large windows to admire the view and a spa. I liked the luggage storage/ dressing area outside the bathroom. There is little landscaping around the grounds but the pool is...

We stayed at the hotel while whale watching out of Mirissa. It is beautifully located just outside Mirissa on the beach. The facilities are excellent. Staff were very helpful throughout. The restaurant was good and the food tasty. Being just outside Mirissa you are away from the buzz of Mirissa beach but there were quite a few bars/cafes on the...

It's a three storey building with no lifts. It was not well lit and we had to call the reception a couple of times as there was no water. Food was average. The wifi hardly worked in the rooms. The room was good with two queen side beds for two. A friend visited us from Colombo and we informed the...

We arrived at the Mandara Resort and Spa hotel only to find out that we were given a room not on the main hotel building but in an annex building at the back of the main hotel.
