We stayed here for just over a week over the new year period. Having now seen the other accommodation in person along the beach we are very pleased that we picked Giragala for our stay. The location was the best of all the hotels as it is on the bit of Mirissa where two beaches meet and next to the...

I had booked this hotel for 5 nights - we had a warm welcome by the owner/manager, but we got the room closest to the entrance, with no privacy. After a few hours I started to notice the constant traffic noise ( Sri Lankans love honking their horn,,). I asked for another room, and got one with view of the...

Can't beat the location however the accommodation is very basic with old beds, smelly pillows and dirty sheets. Bring plenty of mossie repellant. The owner is lovely but this place needs some serious upgrading for the price.

We were really impressed with the location of giragala, with access to the wonderful beach and relaxed hammock area in the garden it has a good backpacker feel to the place. Rooms are very basic but have netting to prevent mosquito bites which is a godsend. If your planning on spending your days on the beach and local bars and...

Beautiful resort right on the beach Mirissa. Beautiful palm garden with hammocks and lounge chairs. Unfortunately, many lounge chairs are in bad condition, but you can choose some. We had a bungalow with a terrace. The room was clean, comfortable bed with a mosquito net, air conditioning. Clean linen and towels every day. Wardrobe with a small safe for free....

We had a lovely, standing free, beach cottage. No tv, with musquitonet. Lovely garden, yammie Sri Lanka breakfast in the garden. Just watch out for a very annoying tuktuk driver- Madu, who intimidates other drivers cause he wants to drive you, who showes up at the hotel all the time, talking a lot- turned out everything was a lie: a...
