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.

My husband and I stayed in Opal resort for one whole week. It has a perfect location. The room is very pretty and clean. We were so happy to have an air conditioner, it was necessary as the weather was hot. The owner is super friendly and kind, gave us a lot of suggestions for where to visit and helped us to rent a scooter and arrange taxi, etc. Breakfasts were well presented as well, I love the milk tea. Highly recommend, we would stay there again if we come to Mirissa.

Can't say enough good things about this place. The family that run it are just so friendly, helpful, and simply amazing with regards to suggestions in Mirissa/just talking. We originally booked for 2 or 3 nights, but stayed 5 nights in the end - and still didn't want to leave (Mirissa in general is fantastic!). They recommended us to all the best locations in Mirissa (diving, spas, sunsets etc), and they were always smiling. Can't wait to go back again! Thanks!!

Only small piece of feedback would be to try and reduce the number of mosquitos and ants found around the house. Because they keep the house quite dark, a lot mosquitos stay there all day.

This is a wonderful retreat from the hustle and bustle. A resort where you can find yourself and also get to know the Sri Lankan lifestyle a little bit more, if you interesset. The family will welcome you and each of them are lovely and very kind.

Less than 10 mins walk to Mirissa Beach, the temple where you can practice yoga for 15$ and easy access to any other shops, restaurants or beaches by foot or motorbike.

Run by a beautiful and kind family. The son of the family, Harindu, who was so helpful and gentle, is managing the little business.

The guesthouse/ resort is spotlessly clean, very comfortable beds and a lovely indoor/outdoor chill out space upstairs,and downstairs the yard is filled with luscious plants - a rally relaxing place!

The house is gorgeous - filled with ornaments and lovely decorations, a fish pond and a big yard in front ......a really quaint place.
Breakfast was great and delicious : home made and always different day by day. From English breakfast to real traditional Sri Lankan breakfast,- savoury or sweet in a big variety and enough to not leave hungry for day adventures! The mum is a very good cook and she got her heart on the right spot!

We had a great stay at opal resort, this place truly is a relaxing oasis, a little heaven in Mirissa. I would recommend to any traveller, tourist, family..... passing through! You'll feel great!

Me and a friend spent a night here when we got to mirissa the welcome from the whole family especially the son was very friendly and helpful and made us feel at home straight away. The rooms are very clean with good linen and mosquito net. They included breakfast which was lovely we felt like VIPs on the landing of there beautiful guest house. Only a 5minuite walk to the beach which is a nice distance as the party's can go on quite late and the music is very loud but you can't hear it here. Overall excellent and would go back if I was in mirissa again. Sabrina and Hannah

Opal Resort is located 5 minutes from the beach and just around the corner of the main road (where you can find restaurants, shops and get easy access to yoga places). Harry the owner is a super friendly and patient person who is always there to help whenever I needed. I loved the full Sri Lankan breakfast every morning and it was very good value for money - you can't get the same homemade breakfast for that price in the area. The room itself is very comfortable and the bathroom is very clean with hot shower. Honestly no complain for Opal Resort and I really enjoyed my stay there while traveling in Mirissa. Will definitely come back!

Lovely family who sincerely looked after us during our 4 nights. The room is a bit tight with the large bed but as the reviews say it is clean. All the family are friendly and unobtrusive. It is definitely an advantage that Harry speaks English far better than at any other place we stayed in Sri Lanka. We understood a little more of the culture. We also went on a brilliant whale watching tour in a small boat, organised by Harry who got other guests together for a good price. Thank you Harry and family and best wishes for 2016.

I cant express enough gratitude for this guest house!!
The amazing family that runs the business is extremely friendly and gentle and took me in like a daughter. The rooms are absolutely spotless, and the food is easily one of the most delicious meals I have had in Sri Lanka. The breakfast was delicious as well as the dinner (pre-ordered and additional pay). It is a 5 minute walk to the beach and if you are wanting to sleep in a quiet environment, I recommend sleeping here rather than the beach, as there are parties almost every night.
As the family is local, they give great advice on planning your travels in Sri Lanka. Furthermore, there are yoga classes nearby at a hilltop temple, ayurvedic spas, and amazing kottu restaurants nearby that make your stay at Mirissa the most relaxing.
I do believe that it depends on when you go but I strongly advise to bring bug spray, as there are many mosquitoes in the afternoon. Also as there is no hot water, I would recommend to take showers when it is still warm outside.

Overall I really recommend this guest house, especially for those who are looking for a relaxing time in Mirissa.
