I liked Poppies very much. Nice garden, clean rooms and nice staff. The location is good and they arranged both snorkeling and a drive to Talalla for a good price. We are going back tomorrow again. To tax added to the room bill.

Maybe it is Mirissa in general but we didn't like the place at all because of low season. Hotels and guest houses were busy with all kinds of maintenance for coming high season. At poppies the room was oke for the price we paid. Much was possible on request, but you need to ask it otherwise nothing will happen.

The garden seemed to be more of an advertising platform than relaxing. The bedding had a strong smell of petrol wish made the whole room smell like a petrol station. The manager was very rude when we requested to leave earlier than intended. We did not appreciate being shouted at and such an aggresive approach. There was no negotiation. Very...

This place is pretty average and I'm not sure why it scores so highly if I'm honest. I didn't feel the service or room was very good and we only stayed one night. I don't want to leave a poor review, but there are much better options around for a better price.

We have had great hosting from beautiful Sri Lankan people, they are allways welcome and ready to help you. I think Sri Lanka is the right place if you travel with your little baby, everyone loves little baby and we felt safe with them. Poppies has a little garden where you can get some rest and relax. you may also...

Clean rooms with a hammock and comfy chairs in front! That was just awesome, sitting in the garden in front of your room, chilling out. Many mosquitos, but the owner puts anti-mosquito inscents next to you if you sit outside. The bathroom is huge, very nice. We simply had a very pleasant stay. If you think you paid to much,...

Room are set in a beautiful garden. Table and chairs outside every room. They put a mosquito spiral outside every room in the evening. Rooms are very clean and spacious. Extremely helpful staff helped me buy a birthday cake for my girlfriend and stored it in his own house until suprise moment.

Don't let the photos fool you. They've added another level and this place isn't as quaint and cosy as it looks. The room was very clean and comfortable, though, but we would have expected soap and bottled water for the high price we paid. Good location. Friendly staff. Not the beach shack we were expecting. Overall, should have been better.

Poppies is next to Mirissa beach -my favourite beach in Sri Lanka with soft white sand & great for swimming. The owner of Poppies is really friendly & it's set in a relaxing garden full of hammocks & even a little fountain. We ended up staying 5 nights we liked it so much. Highly recommended.
