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.

We stayed @ Samantha Flora & Fauna for just over 3 weeks with our 1 year old boy. The staff were all extremely friendly and very helpful. Our room was in the building furthest away from the main road overlooking the garden and the little stream - it was perfect for us! We didn't hear the road or the big parties going on on the beach. The room was very spacious, a large bathroom with two baisins, a shower with warm water :) and a big balcony. The room was cleaned every third day. We felt totally at home.

Breakfast portions are large (fresh fruit, eggs, jam, toast). A must is to try the freshly grilled fish in the evenings - delicious! (Also totally recommendable are the batter fried prawns aswell as the prawn and mango salad)
We had an amazing time - Thankyou soooo much Samantha, Nilmini and team!

Room Tip: We had a room at the back, looking out over the garden and little stream. Nice and quiet.

I can really recommend this accommodation. Such a nice place. Just across the road you can find the beach. The place is full of trees and feels isolated. They are taking care of a squirrel who felt down as a baby and a monitor lizard lis iving just next to them in the small river. In the early morning monkeys were on our roof :) it was great. The people are really nice there, bed is comfy, bathroom simple.

Hotel - Beautiful view, right next to the beach. We met the nicest people here, they helped us with everything we needed and beyond - trips, transport, covid testing...and with a smile on their face every time. Very nice room and great service.
Food - Fresh fish and seafood every day, homemade juice, breakfast with the most delicious fruit a classic continental breakfast so everyone will be satisfied.

Next time I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Spent a very disappointing night in this small hotel in the centre of Mirissa. The description of the room was nothing like the reality - the so called patio was part of the public reception area and the view of the garden was a view of a wall. The room was clean and had air conditioning but had no furniture apart from a bed, small table and fridge and was full of mosquitos, probably because a very dirty brackish river runs through the garden. The bathroom had a small high up widow onto the reception area which meant you could hear everything going on all night. My friend had booked a sea view room but was given a dark and dirty room in the garden. We decided not to have breakfast on site although it was included. The only good part was the man working on reception who did his best to help us.

Exactly what a guesthouse should be. Sam and his wife are very helpful and friendly. It is well located at the same time as being relaxed and somehow quiet. The room we stayed in was lovely - bright and airy.

If you’re looking for something that is not too expensive, but makes you feel at peace, this is the place.

Do not book non A/C rooms. These rooms shouldn’t be available even for dogs. Fungus on walls , cockroaches and mess everywhere. Dogs making noise from 2 am no chance to sleep. They charge You for cancellation for something which is worse than basement. 0 out 10

Hi Remi1011, The only drawback of our non A/C rooms is that there is no air conditioner. It is equipped with a very clean bed, sheets and towels. The room is a cabana in the natural environment. Its floor is made of wood. It is unacceptable that there were various noises. Also, if you want to cancel the reservation and leave early, we will not charge for it. Good Luck Flora and Fauna Team

Wow… a crisp vista from the high up (well air conditioned) room overlooking Mirissa beach. A beautiful, tasteful, functional stay in the very heart of Mirissa. Samantha and his wife run the guest house and provided us with endless smiles and merry cheer + tuktuk drivers and local tips! Great!

Located just across the road from the Main beach this place nestled in a grove was the best thing we picked. We walked in and were lucky to get a sea facing room with AC. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and well done up with tea arrangements. A wonderful balcony faces the main beach of Mirissa. Nissan restaurant nearby on the beach was a great place for lunch. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this place to anyone.

Hiya As far as I could tell the superior had a larger bed. Maybe Queen Size as opposed to a standard double. All other facilities were the same. Dave
