This is a fantastic family run guest house with basic rooms (as you would expect for the price) run but a really friendly and hospitable family. Mamma's cooking was amazing. Its in a great location. Stayed for a week.

We spent 3 days in MIrissa and we really enjoyed the beautiful beach and delicious fresh fishes sold on the beach. We stayed at Dinu's resort for 3 nights and we were moderately satisfied. We liked: the small private balcony, the close location next to the beach, the calm environment, the nice staff very keen to discuss with clients and...

There are business owners who wish to grow their business and others who are out to make a quick buck no matter the long term expense. This place falls into the second category. We were asked to pay 8000 Rupees a night for a dirty room with an air mattress, dirty sheets and dirty towels. We were not forewarned that...

A hotel with good food and ok location. But the two guys running the place are very unpleasent. They are only interested in selling you things. if you dont want to buy, they will ignore you. A shame since the rest is ok. My recommendation is to avoid

Well. i'm really not a person who ever complains or writes review about places but this time i had to make an exception.

All the rooms are filthy dirty. Only some of the fans work properly. Even the family who own and run the place throw their rubbish around. The kitchen is unbelievably filthy. Whilst there we noticed that Dinu, the manager seems to give different prices to clients according to his estimation of their wealth. Had some money stolen and heard of...

We booked four nights a couple of months in advance and paid a deposit. When we arrived - admittedly after dark but this was largely because it was badly signposted and very hard to find - Dinus had sold our rooms to other guests and told us we should be grateful that he had kept the overflow rooms for us...

I totally agree with the reviews below, it's the worst hotel in Mirissa. Unfortunately all other places we checked were fully booked, or only had a room for 1 night, and since we definitely wanted to stay in Mirissa and didn't want to change every day, we took the (only) room available at Dinu's. It's dirty, damp, sticky, the sheets...
