The hotel building itself is a real eye sore in the landscape, the room we stayed (4th floor, corner towards the ocean view) was mediocre at best, poor lighting, not very clean, lots of stuff are broken and the overall maintenance is poor. However the location and view were awesome as you are right on the ocean and at the...

The first thing to meet us in our room was a cockroach, not off to the greatest of starts. But it wasn`t too bad in the end, the place was clean, had a decent enough queen bed, and an single bed also. It had air con and hot water in the shower. Door to the bathroom didn`t close. There was...

This is the WORST hotel that we went to in Sri Lanka. We were so unhappy that we didn't even spend a night and demanded our money back. The rooms are DIRTY (long black hairs everywhere and nail bits), the door to the shower fell off, took forever for the water to disappear from the sink, stinky bathroom, old dirty...

We stayed 3 nights, we decided to stay after we bargained room without breakfast and AC from 6.500 to 3.000. Rooms in this area were more expensive than in others. There was wifi and hot water, 2 bottles of water and 4 teabags for free. The room would be totally overpriced without bargining. And bed smelled bad. They have nice...

I stayed here for two nights and payed a walk in rate of 6000 lkr a night for an air con room (8000 lkr on booking.com). The room is spacious and fairly clean but the bathroom smelt horrible. My room was not cleaned during my stay. The location is good, a quick walk to the centre or mirissa beach. Breakfast...

This was ment to be a 3 star hotel. Not one redeaming quality. I was upgraded to a room with a sorta view, but the sight from the outdoor area, not a balcony, was a littered dumpsite. Sheets were too small and torn. The small windows had portable cupboiards in front of them blocking any possible view. Impossible staff running...

We arrived in Mirissa after touring Sri Lanka for 2 weeks and just wanted some where on the beach for 4 nights to finish off our trip. We found the hotel of a booking website and read all the reviews. The hotel is as it says it is - 2 star accomodation on the beach. The staff are young men,...

My 'single' room had three beds and could have slept five people...that said a lot. This is a place that caters to groups of young people on holiday. Our deluxe rooms were anything but....a thin mattress covered by a thin 'holey' sheet that didn't even fit over the top of the mattress. Yes, there is air-con but no TV, no...

Overall very disappointing. Wonderful location on the beach but that's about it. Some of the staff tried hard to please but not much to work with. We had two rooms here and both rooms had bad sewer smell coming from vent in the bathroom. As others have noted, the walk down the long corridor to get to the beach is...

My girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay in Sunbeam. Comfortable air coned room, clean and spacious bathroom, fast wi-fi connection (this is not usual at Sri Lanka) and a reasonable price (beginning December). The location is great, right at the middle of the beach at one side and the main village road with shops and restaurants on the other side....

“Let the personnel show you a few rooms and then decide. The most expensive one does not necessarily need to be the best. In general I think upper storeys will be better.”
