10.0 Excellent
Pros: From the excellent welcome drinks to our huge room with four poster bed and balcony with a fabulous view . Nothing was too much trouble for this fantastic family team. The little thoughtful extras like the torch Ito help guide us home at night was amazing. Breakfast was not only delicious but a wildlife experience with monkeys, chipmunks and the eponymous peacocks joining us. The location is perfect it feels far away from the town without being far at all, five minutes takes you past the best Roti shop in Sri Lanka and down to the beach ... what more could a girl want you say? A home from home Labrador .. they have one of those in the form of the loveable Simba. All in all this was definitely the best place I have ever stayed at this price point ....
Cons: Simba needs to have his own play time like a happy hour but better
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Liked the fact that they where very eco aware at hotel
10.0 Excellent

Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location is great - it’s a 10 min walk to the beach. The hotel will arrange a tuk tuk if you’re feeling lazy! There are also peacocks walking around the property which is cool Very clean and comfortable. The room was spacious and felt very homely. The best thing about this place is the customer service. The family who run it are incredible and nothing is too much to ask. Thank you very much for having me’
Cons: Nothing at all.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Friendly staff, clean and cozy rooms and tasty breakfast. Appreciated that we could use their bikes (for free). Among, if not the best place we stayed at during our time in Sri Lanka.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was extremely warm, location is great and away from noisy roads and close to nature (peacocks, monkeys and other birds). Breakfast was delicious and the dog Simba is a cutie!
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The villa was really nice: very clean, comfortable, located near the beach. The surroundings are picturesque: you can see peacocks, various species of birds, whatever here. Breakfasts are varios and delicious: fresh fruits, pancakes, toasts. The hosts are kind and nice people, always willing to help. Calm location, good places to eat nearby. Everything you need for a perfect vacation. Will definitely recommend this villa!!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: We stayed for 5 days/4 nights in a Deluxe Triple Room and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was large and well provisioned with tea making facilities, AC, fridge and fan, but no TV which will disappoint some guests. For us the highlights were sitting on the balcony with a cold beer, listening to the peacocks and wildlife, and the friendliness of the whole Villa team. Breakfast is made to order and the 'hoppers' are excellent. As other reviewers have noted, the Villa is set back from the main beach area and is about 10-15 min walk. We tried several of the beach restaurants and would recommend the Zephyr Fish restaurant.
Cons: Distance from beach.

Pros: Sri Sharavi Villas are incredible. There is nothing that hasn’t been thought of to make your stay as comfortable and individual as you are. The villas are luscious. You are treated like royalty by the staff and nothing is too much or too little for them. The Sri Lankan breakfast is highly recommended. The 42m infinity pool is pretty spectacular, especially so close to the beach - a great view. Will definitely book again - cannot recommend enough. Thank you Sandeep and Team.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: My partner and I spent 2 weeks hiking around Sri Lanka and staying here was pure luxury. The food, staff and service was incredible. Our bed was so comfortable and showers were actually hot. We relaxed in the gorgeous pool for two days whilst looking at the beach and it was perfect. Could easily have spent a week here and 110% recommend. The location is a bit out of the main Mirissa hub, however it's a short tuk tuk or as we did walk into town. We actually ended up having second meals here as the food was the best in Mirissa. Thank you for making our Sri Lankan trip so special.

Cons: Nothing
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The pool was lovely and clean. Breakfast was very nice and the position on the beach was perfect.
Cons: There were very few guests, lots of staff who unfortunately never seemed to be around when you needed a drink or to order some food. The air con in our room wasn’t working so we needed to move villas- it would have been a nice touch to upgrade is for last remaining night given inconvenience and that we were the only ones there, but never mind. You can’t walk anywhere, but mirissa is only a short Tuk Tuk (10 mins) away.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing! I could not recommend this property enough. We originally only booked one night but when we arrived at our next accommodation we ended up going back to Sri Sharavi and stayed another 5 nights. They were so helpful with this transition. The beachfront villas were stunning, spacious and modern. They had a gorgeous pool with poolside bar and service. The staff were beyond amazing, so funny and friendly and always made us feel right at home. Morning yoga provided. This accommodation would suit any large group or family as the villas have three seperate bedrooms so you can hire out the whole villa or just one room if you need. Perfect for both couples or large groups travelling together and also kid friendly. Food was delicious. I highly recommend!
Cons: Nothing at all
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great design on the beach, fabulous service, superb pool
Cons: Room was a little damp feeling but probably due to all the rain

Pros: So beautiful place! The bed was so comfortable. The staff was really nice and helpful. It was perfectly clean. Best hotel I stayed in, in Sri Lanka!
Cons: The bed had a mosquitonet, but it was impossible to close - it should be replaced so it actually gives protection The pathways were surrounded by lots of jungle inside the hotel property. I was really scared of snakes/animals there. It was also impossible to know witch way to go at the beginning It should be easier to find/contact staff
8.0 Excellent
Pros: *complimentary tuktuk service to go to the city center *super nice staff - they made us a snack for our journey back to the airport :) *luxurious garden and gorgeous pool *good wifi *possibility to pay by credit card : a bit of a challenge, but it worked out
Cons: *we were locked out on the first night, took us 20min to wake up the person "on duty" *our bungalow was very nice, but on booking it said 90m², and it's definitely not that big *on booking it said it had a "view" : it did on part of it, the other part is on a small canal ditch and construction site *noise: There was also a lot of construction work going on, including at D Canal House so we had to ask staff to stop using hammers in the mornign when you're having breakfast or relaxing by the pool
10.0 Excellent

Pros: I would give more than 10 points if that was possible... excellent location, lovely garden, wonderful architecture with love to detail, outstanding hosts and very tasty breakfast.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: This was the best stay we had in Sri Lanka, I would definitely recommend it! We wanted to extend our stay here but the rooms were fully booked so be quick if you decide to stay here a bit longer. The staff does everything to keep you happy and safe.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The room was huge with a comfy bed, clean bathroom with nice shower. The pool is amazing. Staff is very friendly although some of them don't speak any English. The whole place has an amazing vibe with the cabins and hotel itself, its like walking through a jungle
Cons: The birds are quite loud early in the morning (starting from 0600). Its a bit of a walk to the main street in Mirissa (about 15 minutes), although they offer free tuktuk rides to the main road untill 1900

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The personnel is very efficient and polite. Rooms are spacious. Fantastic pool. Food is delicious as the Chef cooks with high quality products. Highly recommended.
Cons: Our stay was too short. We would have stayed much longer.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is located a perfect distance outside of Mirissa, about 7 mins but Tuktuk. It is located right on the beach and so views are amazing, however swimming on the beach was difficult. Breakfast and lunch were served under a porch by the sea which was a lovely setting. Pool area was great and kept really clean and tidy.
Cons: You had to let them know by 4pm if you wanted dinner that evening which we found a little stressful.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very pleasant beach side location. Wonderful food. Great facilities. Owner and partner very attentive and friendly, voluntarily arranging trips for us and ensuring our stay was comfortable and enjoyable.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was fabulous. We also ate a couple of evening meals at the hotel which proved to be quite possibly the best of our whole 2 week holiday! The staff were very friendly and efficient . Marnix was really helpful with local information, and generally very amenable. He even upgraded us to a beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the pool and the sea, for which we were so grateful.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Super friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The pool/gardens are lovely and you cannot get closer to the ocean! It’s like being on your own private beach. We even saw some baby turtles heading out to the ocean after hatching. The food in the restaurant was also excellent, better than anything we tried in town.
Cons: The location was perfect for us, but it’s about a 10 min tuk tuk ride from mirissa beach/town. We preferred this though.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The Staff and the owner were fantastic, great story behind the hotel being built and you really get a feel for how much the owner cares about your stay and also how well looked after the staff are! The Sea view rooms are fantastic all with seats outside to watch the sunset and enjoy the scenery. The food was brilliant all meals but especially dinner where there is a special menu each night with different options. The hotel backs onto a beach which is completely untouched with no other large hotels along which makes it great for an early morning walk, if your lucky the hotel dog will join you too. Marissa Beach is a 3 min Tuk Tuk ride which is perfect and has lots of nice places to eat and you can spent the day there on the sunbeds which at most places are free as long as you buy something.
Cons: We stayed in the standard double which was at the back of the hotel so had to walk behind the kitchen where the staff were sometimes eating. Also there was an air con unit above the stairs which dripped making the stairs slightly slippy.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Super luxuries place with really dedicated and kind staff. Owner was there and we enjoyed a good talk. (Dutch owner) Breakfast was super nice and the setting on ocean and the gorgeous pool can’t be beaten. Good value for money. A bit of a steal actually!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Gorgeous rooms and grounds. Amazing food and lovely pool with private beach great for a walk or swim. Close to Mirissa but away from the crowds. Lovely stay!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great breakfast and helpful staff
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Nice boutique hotel, intimate vibe. Very nice pool & garden overlooking an almost private beach Staff was super friendly & helpful with our young kids Nice location, away for Mirissa crowd, but easily accessible (10 minutes by Tuk Tuk)
Cons: The rooms are not fully cleaned every morning, It is something that you would expect for an hotel of that range.

Pros: Host makes you feel very welcome. Location might look like a bit out of town, but it’s actually next to one of Mirissa’s main sightseeing spot. House is off the main road, so no sounds from the cars and buses. Rooms, especially the bathroom, is very stylish. The view on the coconut palms and the beach with sea turtles is really unique. I would highly recommend this place!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very good location by the sea and just a short tic-tuc ride to centrum and main beach in Mirissa. Quiet and beautiful with comfortable rooms and good standard. Good beach for snorkeling and quite easy to swim.
Cons: Very poor quality of towels. They’re leaving blue strings and traces all over the body when used after taking shower. A little disappointing to be offered Lipton tea bags in a country famous with great quality tea. No complimentary water after the first day. Big room but dark as there was only one window! Small opening under the door made it easy for insects to get in.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Great location super close to a good swimming beach. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable, breakfast is good and the staff are friendly and helpful. I’d definitely recommend it!

8.8 Excellent
Pros: We got everything arranged for us, transport from airport even as our flight was late and we arrived in after in the night. The person working there took good care of us driving us around in his tuktuk and didn't want anything extra from it. The room was clean and had nice ac, bed was ok. 10 min walk to the beach if you cared for walking or a few min tuktuk ride.
Cons: The location was ok, not great but not bad. Just perfecly ok. We had some small issues with utilties, but it was fixed shortly after we made there owner aware. Other than that it was just as expected.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Room was very clean and spacious. Our host was very friendly and helpfull. The whale whatching trip booked from the hotel was huge succes and the staff made it fun.

casa maria - Mirissa - Building

Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk and laundry facilities. Guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle for a surcharge, and free self parking is available onsite.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful quiet location at the pretty end of Mirissa Beach, 2 minute walk to beach. The facilites and staff were absolutely amazing. When they found out my husband and children were coeliacs they went out of their way to accommodate them. They were very helpful with anything we asked for. It was like a home away from home. Highly recommend.
5.8 Okay
Pros: The hotel personnel was very friendly, helpful and really cared for us, e.g. when I got sick (thank you Kavindu and Ajith!). Breakfasts were very good and tasty. The hotel has nice swimming pool and flowers everywhere which creates a paradise atmosphere. The room was comfy and acceptably clean. Beach is 1 minute walk from the hotel.
Cons: Filthy garbage around the hotel (mainly the beach access path) and all around Mirissa beach. Walking to beach is simply a disgusting experience. You may think it is not hotel's responsibility, but actually it is. Mirissa beach had been turned into one of these busy tourism industry hot spots densely populated by hotels and restaurants. European owner of this hotel greatly benefits from bringing thousands the foreign tourists to the place, so why he/she does not to care for declining environment?? For that sole reason, although the hotel itself was a very good experience, we do NOT recommend this hotel or Mirissa beach to anyone, especially not to families.
6.3 Good
Pros: Good shower pressure and hot water.
Cons: On arrival 2 out of 3 light bulbs we not working, we had no room towels or beach towels. The property needs someone to direct the staff, 4 of them appear to do very little, sit on their phones and smoke behind the counter where breakfast is prepared. There were ants all over our room door both inside and out, we went to the super market and bought insect killer. Ash trays were over flowing throughout our stay, surely they could be emptied? A beach towel sat on a lounger for 3 days before the staff realised that the person had checked out. Air con unit in our room is almost had it, water dripping all over the floor and the wall is damp, obviously this has been happening for a while.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Friendly and helpful staff, great breakfasts, refreshing swimming pool and very nice atmosphere. The hotel is very close to the beach.
Cons: There was no room service during our 4 days stay, we had to take out the rubbish ourselves...
7.9 Good
Pros: The breakfast was excellent. If you prefer a Sri Lankan breakfast they are happy to prepare it for you. The facilities were beautiful. Great pool! Good location.
Cons: It is not exactly a beach front property as advertised. You have to walk across a road and through a dirty path to get to the beach. The staff was a bit stand offish (even made an unwelcome comment to my friend). The fan in my fan only room would turn off in the middle of the night so that wasn’t great.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: If you're looking for a beautiful guest house, in a quiet location, a stone's throw from the beach, with genuinely personal service - then look no further. We stayed here for 3 nights, and were surprised to find we had the place to ourselves! We received top-notch service from Kavindu, who was there come rain or shine for anything we needed; truly the perfect host. Aside from wonderful service, a definite highlight was the private courtyard swimming pool, which frankly, feels like a tropical paradise - lined with passion fruit trees, star fruit trees, and magnolia trees, and frequented by peacocks, parrots, chipmunks, and the odd eagle (small, not sure which kind); perfect for sunbathing in peace from the bustle of the beach, and an idyllic spot for afternoon tea, which Kavindu offered everyday with cake and biscuits. Speaking of food, this was by the far the best breakfast we had on our Sri Lanka trip, no short of five courses, cooked to order! If you're on the fence about booking this hotel versus a larger, seemingly-more-luxury hotel, then I'd wholeheartedly recommend Casa Maria - it really was paradise!
Cons: The only negative was that we had a couple of issues with our shower and the water pump, but this was easily put right, with no hassle. We were offered to move to a (bigger) room, but decided to stay in the one we had (a cute double room) as it was so nice, despite the temporary shower issue. While our shower was being fixed, we were offered to use the shower in another room, which was fine for us and a good practical solution.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything !! This place is the bomb... both my wife and I have travelled extensively and both felt this was one of the best places we have stayed. A quiet oasis at the eastern end of the beach. Rooms large and spotlessly clean. Beautiful pool and delicious breakfast. It was almost too good! Disappointed that we couldn’t stay longer.
Cons: Nothing. Amazing place to stay.
Parrotfish Bay Mirissa - Mirissa - Pool

9.2 Excellent (145 reviews)
Overview Reviews

Featured amenities include laundry facilities, coffee/tea in a common area, and refrigerator in a common area. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
7.5 Good
Pros: It is a lovely place, very private and peaceful. There's nothing better than listening to the waves all day and to doze off. Cute little pool which had the perfect temperature to chill in for ages which is also essential as it is impossible to go swimming in the sea without risking your life (at least during this time of year). Last but but not least the staff was very friendly and caring. Thank you again for everything!
Cons: It is such a lovely peaceful place with a lot potential BUT if this place wants to 'compete' with other premium hotels it needs to pay a lot more attention to details. •Customer Service: the hotel was almost empty, we booked the lotus room (nice room but no view of the beach like it says in the description) and we asked if there are any other rooms available. Of course one should not expect an upgrade for free but as a part of a good service, in order to make the guest feel as welcome and satisfied as possible it would be worth considering to give a free upgrade. Keep in mind 4/6 rooms were empty. We were open to pay a bit more and one of the staff members asked us to offer a price (which wasn't far off the price he offered us first). After talking to the owner or manager he told us he cannot offer us the price we offered...still keep in mind most of the accommodation was empty AND we were 4/6 nights on our own. So this does not quite make sense to me since customer satisfaction should always be a hotel owner's or the manager's top priority. •Facilities: if one pays such an amount of money and considers he/she is staying in a premium accommodation one should expect the following: tea making facilities, safe!!, minibar, amenities. •Pricing: Overall it is a good product, yet charging more than 3000 rps e.g. for a rice and curry for dinner PER PERSON! is in my opinion disproportionate. If you want to be premium, offer premium. It is all about details.
7.0 Good
Pros: Lovely location right at the sea. Spacious comfortable clean rooms
Cons: The pricing of transfers was exorbitant, we did agree to the price and then it was added to the bill PLUS service fees taxes etc. I suggest making your own arrangements for transfers. One of the rooms did not have hot water, the host explained that this was due to overcast conditions
5.8 Okay
Pros: The swimming pool area
Cons: The room was very basic if you compare with other hotels in the area with same price
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing! Everything was perfect for couples - the accommodation, the food, the staff and the view! This is a beautiful setting on the beach- feels and looks like paradise! Beach at Parrotfish Bay is a million times better than Marissa Beach (unless you want loud bars/ further range of food/ lots of tourists..!) service was excellent and very welcoming! This is a must stay location near Marissa!
Cons: Didn’t serve alcohol which we didn’t realise (but on the plus welcome BYOB, and have a fridge to keep cold!)
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Best breakfast we have had in Sri Lanka!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Secluded and basically your own little paradise! Great, attentive staff. A really wonderful place to stay for a few nights!
Cons: It would be good to have a kettle in the rooms so people can make tea when they want and not feel like they are bothering the staff.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location, peace and quiet and service of manager
Cons: One grumpy older manager!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great Location. We stayed at the Neela Suite, which is probably the best in the property. It has a huge balcony overseeing the ocean and you have fantastic views any time of day/ night. The breakfast was fantastic everyday. The chef is just a rockstar. Every meal was gourmet. Well cooked and better presented and eating your food by the sea is just awesome. Both the sun rise and sunset is beautiful. The pool is sparkling. Everything is spotless and flawless. There is a lovely little bay to swim when the sea gets rough. Sometimes you can see the turtles. We saw paws of the babies all over the beach. The private beach is just that- private and you can go dipping any time of the day or night. Just lovely being there. Highly recommend. Beautifully romantic. The people are very helpful and listen to your requests at any point of the day.
Cons: Nothing to complain really.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Staff was lovely, helpful and the food was amazing. Hotel has it's own private beach, altought the waves were too rough to swim in. Location was peaceful, 5min tuktuk-ride (500rup) away from the restaurants and public beaches. Room was clean and nice. Shower of the Kandyan-suite was best part of the room. We took fullbody massages, that were the best ones of our trip.
Cons: Hotel didn't serve any alcohol, but we could bring our own beverages that the butlers served for us. Rooms didn't have a minibar, only shared fridge.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The family were so accommodating and so friendly. The breakfast each day was different and so good every day. It's in a great location, less than 5 mins to the beach and shops.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: One really nice thing was the generator for the blackouts that occur every day at the same time when it's really hot. Every hotel and accomodation around us never had lights. Location is good.
Cons: We didn't like the breakfast at all, because it was more of a mediocer lunch instead of a breakfast. For example the Curry from the day before was titled a breakfast one morning.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Place was very nice, 5 minutes by foot to the beach. Calm location, in room there was functioning AC. Rooms were newly built, amendities were in good condition. Staff was very friendly, We ordered extra dinner, which was good and really cheap. They also arranged transport to airport for us for reasonable price. I would definitely recommend this place.
Cons: There was only cold water, but was not a problem for us, Shower is above toilet (which is I think standard in Sri Lanka), so after shower whole bathroom is wet. Lock on the door could be more sophisticated, it can be locked only from inside, from outside you can open it only by key.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Everything was great. Staff was very friendly and the Breakfast was excellent. The rooms are spacious, great Bed with mosquito net, airconditioning, fridge. Good location: Beach 5 min walk and bus stop and shops 3 min walk. Very quiet in the day and in the night.

Pros: Lovely decor & attention to detail; charming, welcoming & helpful host family; gorgeous verandas & pool area; gorgeous dining area; the table was always set with fresh flowers & style; wonderful, delicious & generous breakfasts; delicious home cooked meals on request. This guesthouse/family hotel has a resort feel. We loved the verandas & decor outside the ‘superior’ ground floor rooms which were well appointed with queen four poster beds & mosquito nets; room furnishings reflected SL culture - some colonial & some historical themes, all tastefully done - no more decor is needed as it might become kitch
Cons: Nothing to not like; just needs restraint now to not over decorate the place with irrelevant pieces.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly staff, who also helped with onward travel to Unawatuna. We were greeted with homemade cake and soft drinks! Great location, only a short walk to the beach. Very nice and relaxing pool area round the back. The bed was decorated really nicely for our honeymoon, thanks again!

A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
2.5 Mediocre
Cons: We had a horrendous stay at this hotel - we booked it as a treat for my 30th birthday. Myself and my boyfriend both got severe food poisoning from a chicken pizza we ate at the hotel restaurant when we arrived, we had to go to hospital we were so violently ill (the chef drove us, which says a lot) and were bed ridden for two days over my birthday. We complained to the manager and he said it was unlikely to be the pizza (even though we hadn't eaten anything else that day and it came on exactly 6 hours after eating it!). He then offered to remove the pizza from the bill - accepting responsibility and offering us something so ridiculous as compensation! This hotel ruined my birthday and seriously put our health in jeopardy... do not stay here!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice location directly at the beach, very friendly and helpful staff, very spacious and clean room. Due to bad weather before my arrival the cabanas and pool were out of order, but I was allowed to use the pool at the resort next door and they even would have set up a cabana just for me when I asked.
Cons: Unfortunately there was construction work going on during the whole time of my stay, but then I was there during the low season and repair has to be done at some point. So next time I‘d ask in advance if they‘re planning to do any repairs during that time period.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff are all very kind and helpful. The hotel itself is lovely, the location is perfect for beach walks on a near empty sand beach. The rooms are large and well furnished, very clean and with good a/c. We were given a free upgrade which made our stay even better! The breakfast is also very good.
Cons: Our laundry took 2 days to come back to us, only after asking twice.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful hotel by a quiet but amazing beach. Food was delicious and the chef was more than happy to meet my needs as a vegetarian. Rooms were huge and very comfortable. Staff friendly and on hand when you needed anything. 5 minutes tuk tuk ride from Mirissa Beach were we spent a lot of time. Swimming with wild turtles in the morning was the highlight. I would highly recommend this hotel.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Mirissa was our favourite coastal destination. Excellent beaches and still a pleasant atmosphere. Though tourism is very prevalent here, the place has a more laid back scene than some of the other southern coastline beach destinations. Our accommodation was a small 2 story hotel just a few minutes walk from a really nice part of the beach. A popular wave break provided an opportunity to watch some surfers whilst we enjoyed a beer and seafood dinner right on the sand. Our room was spacious and extremely clean. A nice and private verandah was a popular place for enjoying reading and just relaxing. Breakfast was a standout here. Excellent with plenty of fresh fruit. The host extremely friendly. Felt like you were staying as part of the family rather than paying guests.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: From the excellent welcome drinks to our huge room with four poster bed and balcony with a fabulous view . Nothing was too much trouble for this fantastic family team. The little thoughtful extras like the torch Ito help guide us home at night was amazing. Breakfast was not only delicious but a wildlife experience with monkeys, chipmunks and the eponymous peacocks joining us. The location is perfect it feels far away from the town without being far at all, five minutes takes you past the best Roti shop in Sri Lanka and down to the beach ... what more could a girl want you say? A home from home Labrador .. they have one of those in the form of the loveable Simba. All in all this was definitely the best place I have ever stayed at this price point ....
Cons: Simba needs to have his own play time like a happy hour but better

Everything you need for a perfect vacation. Will definitely recommend this villa!!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: We stayed for 5 days/4 nights in a Deluxe Triple Room and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was large and well provisioned with tea making facilities, AC, fridge and fan, but no TV which will disappoint some guests. For us the highlights were sitting on the balcony with a cold beer, listening to the peacocks and wildlife, and the friendliness of the whole Villa team. Breakfast is made to order and the 'hoppers' are excellent. As other reviewers have noted, the Villa is set back from the main beach area and is about 10-15 min walk. We tried several of the beach restaurants and would recommend the Zephyr Fish restaurant.
Cons: Distance from beach.

Pros: # top location.. right next to the beach # loads of shops and restaurants around # very nice and polite staff # welcome drink # clean room and toilet # beach towels # balcony # wifi works fine
Cons: They have got some kind of mattress protector or something which is made of plastic. So when you turn side you kind of slip in the bed and it makes strange noise just imagine sleeping on top of a plastic sheet which is somewhere between he mattress and the bed sheet. It's perhaps the most annoying thing I have experienced in a hotel bed. I was pretty much awake the whole night.

Cons: N/A
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Absolutely loved this place. As said in the title, I really don't think they make places like this anymore, so those lucky enough to stay in a place like this, really should. It oozes both class and charm. The colours on the outside are vibrant, but the decor on the inside is understated. A wonderful combination. It sits the perfect distance from the main strip of Mirissa (which I thought was only worth a single visit) and a ten minute walk from Coconut Hill (which is worth a visit). The great thing about the place during our stay has been that while you are aware others are also staying, it still feels like the place is your own. The pools are perfect. The gardens are wonderfully manicured. And you can step through the wooden gates onto a picturesque beach, which while not suitable for bathing is great for wandering and observing those occupying the rock pools. The service is attentive but never overbearing. And a special mention to the food, which is the best I've had while in Sri Lanka (including restaurants in this). We've had red snapper, seafood platter, avocado soup and cucumber soup. All has been perfect. Over my two visits to Sri Lanka, I think this is the most memorable place I've stayed.
Cons: -

Pros: Excellent location - near the Mirissa strip but secluded and private. Lovely, safe bathing area just outride the villa on the beach among the reef. The owner is a wonderful, friendly gentleman who ensured that everything was looked after. Will definitely visit again.

Pros: Location, Location, Location!!!! Couldn't have asked for a better place. The property, the location and the absolute 'eager to please' attitude of the staff was astounding! Kudos to the owner and his people...
Cons: Nothing to mention... all though overall, we feel that hotel and villa establishments tend to over price the food in their restaurants. A little thoughtfulness in this area would be great, but nevertheless, we wholeheartedly agree that Villa Atulya is value for money!!!!!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Out of town so quieter. Amazing property and pool. Great beachside location. Amazing food.
Cons: Staff available but poor English. No real welcome information so had to ask a lot to find out about facilities and services.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We are a family with two kids (5 & 6) and we both work a lot. So our focus is very much on relaxation in a serene setting, comfort, good food and an environment that is great for our kids to have fun without being stressful for us. Villa Atulya was perfect for us! The residence is charming, beautifully furnished, rooms and especially bathroom spacious, wide balcony with enough space and comfy planters chairs to hang out and overlook the nicely manured and lush garden with well-kept pool and stunning ocean beyond. And while we were able to really enjoy the atmosphere and relax, our kids were able to use the entire house and grounds as their playground. Even on a rainy day it wouldn’t get dull! Food is absolutely amazing. We didn’t intend to, but ended up having every single dinner at home, just because it was so comfortable and so delicious! No extra-fee for the two beds that they put up for the kids. Friendly service, helpful, always therefor us, but always discreet. We felt truly at ease.
Cons: Some of the younger staff could use an English course. But for us that was no problem. Communication worked fine anyway.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We had an amazing stay at the Villa Atulya! due to off season we were the only guest and all ther staff attended us with utmost care. It is just next to the ocean so waking up to waves was so peaceful.
Cons: The staff was not very good in English though they were extremely helpful.
