    location near coco island

    The hotel and the room are not clean, the room had sewer smell from the bathroom. The staff try to be friendly but takes ages to bring drinks or breakfast.

    The location was great, away from the busy Mirissa stretch but close enough to get to if you want some vibe. The restaurant is right on the sea with beautiful views.

    The hotel needs some maintenance. All the fixtures in the bathroom were rusted, the towel was frayed and stained, the fridge was very dirty. The single rooms have views, but off to the side. The best views are from the double rooms.

    Its really much better as in many of the reviews. Walking distance to Mirissa Center for dinner and with more than 3 Tuk-Tuks outside eager to take you if you feel lazy. Because of a few less positive reviews, we arrived sceptical to the Hotel, but since we were staying for 6 nights the manager even agreed to our request to pay for our room on a daily basis. We got a room with direct view and sound of the ocean, balcony with 2 chairs and table. Quiet air-conditioning (one reviewer said it rattled), mosquito net around the 4 poster bed, electrical mosquito repellent plug, fridge and ventilator all new and strong wifi. Sheets were OK, shower water was warm and pressure OK (some reviewers complained about water, but for us it was fine). The hotel is a modern building (3-4 years old) and right on the beach and coral reef, with friendly staff (although sometimes inexperienced), choice of continental, or Sri Lankan breakfast. Deliciois tropicql fruit salad, fruit juice and fresh big coffee pot for breakfast (omelette and Sri Lankan breakfast were fine). Free use of mask and flippers (you can swim with turtles in coral reef in front of hotel). Free use of sun beds. There is a popular surf break right in front of the Hotel which looked quite friendly and a small palmed hill overlooking the ocean that attracts many younger tourists for sunset and selfies. Which makes the Seastar hotel quite reasonable I think for the price. But keep in mind this is Sri Lanka, not Thailand and tourism we experienced in Sri Lanka was a little rough around the edges. Like the waves in the ocean it's much easier if you know how to go with the flow...Wabi Sabi :)))

    It seems that generally when compared to other tropical countries, hotel prices in the main Sri Lankan resorts are a bit higher, especially if booked online. So I can understand that some people will be dissapointed about the quality of their hotel. At the Seastar the rooms could be cleaned a little more thoroughly, but I accept it's not the Hilton. I think it's due to general Sri Lankan inexperience in mainstream tourism standards. But if you ask them to clean more, they will. The high humidity from being right on the ocean has over the years stained some of the furniture, which might disappoint guests upon arrival, before they realize all the other good things the hotel offers. Otherwise everything was fine.

    The location , even if it is not in the center of mirissa.

    A feeling of being ripped off : The overall level of service was poor and far below what we expected. We have booked 2 rooms for 3 nights for around 650€. For example, there was no hot water and very few pressure in the shower. Consequently, we had to get our showers on some other hotel’s beach shower... There was no daily room service to clean the rooms. When we asked for our rooms to be cleaned, we were shown that lost in the small print was a clause in the check-in document that we had been asked to sign where the hotel conveniently says that the rooms will only be cleaned upon request. This clause was not pointed out was upon check in. No copy was provided OFC. Other example: we were only told upon check out that the room rate included a continental breakfast. This meant we were were charged from breakfast options which were not included in the rate. Why not simply inform us about the breakfast options while we were sitting for our breakfast. The service was so pour and slow they were incapable of bringing butter and bread at the same time, my Wife had to go in the kitchen to put them back in the toaster herself, we were 5 of us and had only 2 plates of eggs in 45 mn, the fruit juices never arrived...Day number 2, three of us chose to have breakfast elsewhere, the 2 teenagers who stayed never had a full breakfast but had to share a plate of pancakes because someone from the staff told them breakfast was not included! The Hotel only accepts cash which is not at all practical or even usual for a hotel of this supposed standing (why cash only anyway?). Overall, the experience in this hotel was very poor and the attitude of the owner/manager was very uncooperative making for a disappointing stay in Mirissa. We have left with the feeling of a rip-off and found an other hotel 35 mn away in a tuk tuk, right on a beach, with great service for the third of the price!
