Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

For a group of friends fresh wave Mirissa is a good place to stay.
Location was excellent and staff was friendly.
Room was spacious with a balcony and bathroom was quite spacious as well to my surprise.

Things to improve in my point of view being a hotelier my self for fresh wave would be... to have room checks before giving out the room - tv did not work it didn’t worry us too much cause we were out, Hot water did not work it did not bother us to much cause we are local, the bathroom and it’s equipment could be cleaned and kept better, breakfast could be don’t better add Sri Lankan breakfast add a meat item it will be better.

If theses are looked at it will help fresh wave be of more standard and value for money.

Our stay was excellent.

We didn't stay here so can't comment on the rooms. We ate and drank here on a number of occasions during our trip to mirissa. We found the staff friendly and helpful and the drinks reasonably priced, especially given the view. The toilet for the bar area was superb compared to other similar locations and enjoyed the atmosphere created by the locals who worked there. They were keen to share their culture and homeland with us and politely curious about our culture and country of origin. Many places to choose along the beach, we came back time and time again to feel at home.

Spent 2 nights, was very peaceful, tranquil and enjoyable. Many steps to navigate, however lighting at night is good.
Reception and service was good, baggage was carried by porters to and from room via the stairs, they are very used to the terrain.

Very bad experience, I run away after one night. Room was dirty, no phone inside (so how could they write room service?), nothing inside the fridge, no hairdryer, no towels, no receptionists, NO SEAVIEW even if I paid for it, kitchen smell all around, safe was doesn't work, staff is not helpful... closet doors were broken. No words. By seeing the reviews it looks like a good choice, but trust me: this hotel is like a low cost choice for young groups/couples. It should be 1/2 stars hotel maximum. They charge me the total amount even if I showed them pictures of the room, which was really terrible.

I clue you not to go in this hotel, I was with my fiance and I've made a very bad show... I wondering how they could have 4 stars, how sites like booking.com list this hotel, I wondering how this hotel could have good feedbacks. It was horrible.

The hotel and the room itself was quite pleasing to the eye, the staff were friendly and the food was good and reasonably priced. It was also a nice location on the beach. Unfortunately we were there at Xmas though and the dueling hotels blasting their techno music led to an incredibly loud, sleepless night. The noise was so bad that our windows rattled constantly. It was insane. Staff noted that it’s only that bad at Xmas and New Years but I would worry about weekends as well given it seems to be a party town. Our other complaint would be the lack of hot water which we feel should be a given at that price.

Unfortunately our experience with Fresh Wave left much to be desired. When we arrived to check in the receptionist asked if we had received her message on booking.com. We had not received it, and on checking the messages at 11:30am the morning of check-in she had tried to send us a message informing us they could not give us our confirmed room we had reserved. The reason? They had given it to someone else the day before. So they had no room to give us for our reservation. They expected us to just be ok with this, we were not as we now had no where to stay. After some conversation they tried to find us alternative accommodation. The first place they took us to was a right next door but the rooms were not nice. Another one only had availability for one night (we needed 2), and another one was not near the beach (the reason we had RESERVED this hotel). After about half an hour of getting nowhere they finally offered us a room with a more expensive nightly rates for our original room rate but they only had it available for one night. This was a nice concession and we took it as the kids were getting restless and we just wanted to put our bags somewhere. Once in the room we managed on our own to find another place to book for our second night.

The only person who I will say was amazing was Lesenke (sp?) who went out of his way showing my husband to the other hotel options, setting up the room they finally gave us, getting us an extra mattress, and providing us with the wifi.

Unfortunately the whole experience left a bad taste in our mouths and ruined our first day in Mirissa. The hotel itself is in a great location, the beach is beautiful, breakfast was delicious, and the room we were in was spacious, bright, and comfortable (although a lot of ants). It’s just too bad they don’t honour their reservations. So just a warning to others.

Stayed for 14 days in January 2020 with my family and for Sri Lanka standards this place was a really nice base to explore the South of the island.
Even though the hotel isn't the newest, the staff is taking good care of it, is extremely friendly and always helpful. The restaurant cooks delicious meals and the beach is just few steps away from the apartments. The beach itself is probably the nicest in the area.
The only downside might be that roughly two times a week, it gets noisy as there are parties on the beach. Other than that it was a total pleasure!

Nice hotel, great location, modern clean design, lovely beach front. BUT:

- reception is never staffed, impossible to find anyone
- no longer take credit cards leaving you scrambling around for cash in a small town with limited functioning ATM's
- regular all night rave parties in front of the hotel. Staff seemed oblivious as to why 5his may be an issue.

After 2 sleepless nights we had to leave. Had to hunt down a staff member able to help us check out. They wanted full payment so we had to go through booking.com customer service to cancel the reservation.

This is a prime location for visiting local areas, restaurants, shops buses etc.
But on top of this, the beach it sits on is absolutely beautiful. If you like golden sand, green/blue seas with fun waves, you’ll love this beach. Additionally, it is lined with great bars & restaurants
