We slept in this guesthouse two nights and we really reccomend it. It is very quiet because is not on the main road and you can sleep without hearing traffic sound. Is very near to the sea, you just need to cross the road, and the rooms are nice. We chosed for the Deluxe room at the upper floor with...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Poppies from the 27th of March and until the 3rd of April 2017. We did not debate prices prior to our stay (as is advised) and even though the guesthouse manager was not at all obliged to do so, he gave us a very fair discount on our 7 day stay. Daily managers and...

We had a nice room and the people who work there were very nice. Another big plus is that the beach is very close to the place. (Only about 5 minites walk) Would recommend to leave out the breakfast tho... Fungus on the bread -> disgusting.

Poppies is a great place to stay. The room was simple and clean with a big bathroom. Also a hammock on the small terrace was nice. Also provided a mosquito net, which you really need in Sri Lanka! The staff was very friendly and helpfull. Would definitly reccomand this place!

I liked Poppies very much. Nice garden, clean rooms and nice staff. The location is good and they arranged both snorkeling and a drive to Talalla for a good price. We are going back tomorrow again. To tax added to the room bill.

Maybe it is Mirissa in general but we didn't like the place at all because of low season. Hotels and guest houses were busy with all kinds of maintenance for coming high season. At poppies the room was oke for the price we paid. Much was possible on request, but you need to ask it otherwise nothing will happen.

The garden seemed to be more of an advertising platform than relaxing. The bedding had a strong smell of petrol wish made the whole room smell like a petrol station. The manager was very rude when we requested to leave earlier than intended. We did not appreciate being shouted at and such an aggresive approach. There was no negotiation. Very...

This place is pretty average and I'm not sure why it scores so highly if I'm honest. I didn't feel the service or room was very good and we only stayed one night. I don't want to leave a poor review, but there are much better options around for a better price.

We have had great hosting from beautiful Sri Lankan people, they are allways welcome and ready to help you. I think Sri Lanka is the right place if you travel with your little baby, everyone loves little baby and we felt safe with them. Poppies has a little garden where you can get some rest and relax. you may also...
