This is our second time at Handagedara, we also stayed same time last year. We had two rooms for three nights this time and what can we say but first class. Very clean, staff very helpful, rooms comfortable with great a/c wonderful breakfast. Perfect location for beach, restaurants and whale watching. If staying in Mirissa then this is the place. Staff and owner remembered us from last year. We will go one again I'm sure.

Room Tip: All a/c rooms are facing pool.
