We were there about a week but in out of season time. Rooms with bathrooms start from1000 Rs. Quite dark inside, but it doesnt matter, because you spend all day on the beach anyway:) Rooms are clean like all guest house. In the night you may see some huge cockroaches, so national geografic for free:) Food is expensive, we didn't...

It was a pity that despite the good food, we were the only table for dinner that Friday night. I guess the other restaurants looked more hip and happening. But if you like a quiet and relaxing evening (whether dinner or just drinks), be sure to visit this place. Amit and Osheda were so welcoming and friendly, and the 3...

We stayed at Long Wave Rest in Mirissa for 4 nights and was made to feel very welcome by the owner and her two sons. We paid 3000 per night and for that we had a nice clean room, with a double bed, ceiling fan, mosquito net and bathroom (shower, toilet and sink), what more could you ask for when...

We stayed at the Long Wave Rest in December/January 2013 and had a wonderful time! The place is simple and very clean, right on the beach. They provide sun beds for free which are available for guests only. The landlords - a mother and her two sons - are the nicest people! always smiling, with a good sense of humor...

The whole concept of traveling to another country is too experience how other cultures work and what better place for this to happen than at this hotel. We first stayed here 2 1/2 yrs ago for 3 weeks and as a 9 month trip traveling Asia. The Sri Lankan family vibe is still evident as soon as you walk into...

This place has completely misunderstood the concept of service and attitude towards their guests! Room quality and price are similiar With the rest of the places along the beach, except that when you leave a 10% charge is put on top of your bill without warning and the room charge becomes, in secret, slightly expensive! We have been traveling Sri...

After being frustrated by overpriced accomodation in SL, this place was good find. Room was small (they have bigger), clean, and simple but had attatched bathroom and was worth the 1500 Rs (April 2012). Run by super nice family. The best thing here was the food. Some of the best I had in my month in SL. Huge portions of...

Great value accomodation in heart of Merissa. We stayed for 3 nights in a top floor room which was 500 rupees more than a ground floor (the cheaper rooms looked a little dark). Huge beds, balconies, no hot water but no where in Merissa has hot water and you really don't need it. Has direct access to the beach, which...

The room was basic, but comfortable and included soap and towels for just 1500 rupees (9 euro). The owners were relaxed, friendly and helpful. The food was a bit more expensive than in the nearby restaurants, but also a lot better! Everything is made fresh, with attention to detail, and is in fact what you ordered, which can't be said...
