Mirissa is absolutely beautiful so the benefits of this hotel mainly stem from the beach and the surrounding location. The hotel itself is problematic although nowhere near as terrible as some reviews paint out (having read many reviews on trip advisor so far, some reviewers appear to be very sensitive). Benefits include: - Very close to the beach (30 second...

In December I booked directly through Yasara, as always she was vey accommodating. We booked the same room we had in February, she organised suitable and reliable transport. The atmosphere of the hotel hasn't changed since Feburary, the front desk staff Manoj and his team were extremely helpful and no issue was big enough. The kitchen staff, although a sketch...

We had a delux room with a sea-side view and it was great. We had a little balcony (privacy). The bed was REALLY comfortable, no mosquitos, hot water, FREE drinking water, free b-fast (eggs, toast, jam, butter, and fruit), and quick walk to the beach. However, we were told that internet was "out in all the surrounding areas", but this...

My family and I stayed at this hotel in December 2013.

Unfortunately, I will never return their again. The room could still be...

Nice central hotel, nice breakfast, very clean and very nice friendly staff. Negatives: Bed very noisey and hard. Also balcony dangerous, we had a toddler with us. I found the balcony very dangerous wide gaps between each wood so child easily go between them and fall off. We were on second floor. If you were going without kids it's good...

The staff are very friendly and the manager is a very pleasant and attentive man. The room was great and the bed very comfortable though the bathroom was not very clean and the towels provided were worn out and had dirty stains. We had a private balcony with an amazing view but it was not very private since other guests...

This was my second visit to the hotel and things have changed drastically. It used to be a newly built nice hotel but not the same now due to poor maintenance. The AC was not working properly and they couldn't fix it no matter how much we complaint. The door locks were broken and couldn't lock from inside. The entrance...

We had a non AC room with a fan and mosquito net for a good price, it was clean, bathroom was quite big.
