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.

Randiya Sea View Hotel is a superb place. Absolutely worth the price. The room is well cleaned. All the facilities in the room are almost to 4-star standards. The family room is quite spacious. The room amenities are refrigerator, safety locker, tea preparing facility, television, and two extra-large size beds.
The sea view is a bit obscured since it’s in the other of the road, but across the road, you can find a stunning beach area. As a foreigner, you will feel much comfortable since a huge number of foreign people are usually roaming there. The environment is much safer than typical hotels or logging rooms. The morning buffet is rich consists of Sri Lankan and English foods.
If you are a foreign person do not trust your guide when it comes to prices, please check bookings.com or call and inquire about the prices /amenities. Please keep in mind that the hotel staff is native, and they are not well trained to communicate with foreigners as in a 5-star hotel, but they are very kind, helpful and cooperative. I would highly recommend this place for foreign families by considering the safety and facilities.

My sincere appreciation to the hotel owner Damayanthi who was very helpful to my husband and me in meeting all government legal requirements during the current COVID-19 pandemic and getting visa to travel to srilanka. She also made sure I arrive safely to the hotel by sending a driver to pick me up at the airport at 2am and regularly checking up on him every hour or so till I get to the hotel. I have never witnessed such dedication. My special thanks to Damayanthi.

It’s an Excellent hotel with excellent location and easy access to the beach. The hotel is beautiful, well maintained, Covid secure, extremely clean & comfortable with spacious rooms, beautiful pool. The owner as well as staffs are extremely friendly, Everyone is very thoughtful and caring to ensure that I’m enjoying my stay. I feel like royalty!!

The next best part is the fantastic food and excellent service at the Restaurant. The menu has a great variety of food choices. The food is absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing.
I personally recommend chef Sujith’s mouth watering Tom yum soup. It was intoxicating!! I would definetely recommend this hotel to everybody.

Keep up the great work Damayanthi, have a very prosperous and successful season!

We spent a few nights here in January 2020 in a family room on 3rd floor. The location of the hotel is really good, just cross the main road and you´re on the beach.

The room itself is nice and clean with a good balcony, the only thing that we weren't really happy about was the AC, it wasn'r powerful enough to keep the temperature down during the afternoon and then also the night became vey hot.

The breakfast is ok, nothing special, but some continental and some Sri-lankan dishes. The restaurant was quite bad, we had dinner here once, and it was a big dissapointment.

The staff and service is superb. For the right price (we negotiated our room down to 12.000 per night for a family room) this is a good place to stay in Mirissa.

We were on a unplanned, last minute travel thru the South portion. This place suited our basic needs.

Relaxed on the beach which is across from this place. Give it a 3 star, budget motel. Staff were helpful, dissapointed with breakfast as all the dishes were empty, had to ask staff.

Overall, alright. I feel they can do better, either poor mismanagement or difficult to compete in the area🤔

Deserves 0 star, 1 star is solely for the location.

Room: Old, dated.
TV: Didn't work, even after the issue was looked at three times. They don't seem to subscribe to any channels.
Phone: Didn't work. Had to go down to reception eachtime for housecleaning, food and other in room issues.
Food: We made the mistake of taking the half board option. Apart from a standard rice and pasta dish, they only offered 3 items in the buffet. Found small stones in the rice dish. Food was basic, bland.
Check-in: Room wasn't ready for an hour after the check-in time.
Location: Only positive is the closeness to the beach, within 1 minute walk. However, I would choose to walk a few minutes extra to get the basic minimum experience from a hotel that I'm paying above average rates.

Room was spacious, and beds comfortable. A flat surface in bathroom would be helpful to put personal items on. Hallway and lobby a bit tired looking and don’t match quality of bedroom. Staff very friendly and helpful. Close to beach. Nice breakfast.
Suggest reverse osmosis water system to provide water in refillable glass bottles versus one use plastic. Also suggest refillable dispensers for shampoo, etc.

I was expecting more from this hotel, as it had a very good rating on booking.com. However the room although large, had a hostel feel to it. The deluxe double room had a double and a single bed, the furniture was very tired looking, the general maintainance and tidiness of the hotel wasn't great. The bathroom was a giant wet room, with no hot water. There was lots of noise from other guests and staff.

The hotel pool was outside the front of the hotel on the driveway.

The only positive is that it is opposite the beach and there's an atm right outside.

We also knew that we would be checking out early to go whale watching so asked the hotel to book a tuk tuk for us. The hotel is advertised as having 24 hour reception, expecting that we could check out at 6am on our way to leave the reception area was completely closed, the manager was outside the hotel with the tuk tuk and took our key. I thought I had to pay for the room at the hotel, but presumed because he took our key maybe it was paid though the website.

When our boat returned to the harbour the manager was waiting for us and escorted us back to the hotel to pay, we were told to use a tuk tuk which I didn't have any change to pay for. The manager said he would pay.

We paid back at the hotel which was fine and were also charged the additional tuk tuk fee.

To add to this my husband has contacted the hotel as it was my birthday the night we stayed. The hotel manager had said he would decorate the bed an provide a cake on arrival, neither happened. He had also asked if we could have breakfast early or if we could have something to take due to the early start and were told it was not possible. We were woken up at around 10.45pm and provided with a sandwich and fruit for the morning which was great but we didn't expect it and to be woken up wasn't ideal.

The other reception staff were nice but didn't seem to know exactly what was going on.

I can understand that there were obviously some misunderstandings but I would be hard pushed to recommend this hotel to anyone. Better off paying less for a home stay or hostel.

We had a great time at the Randiya Sea View Hotel. The team supported us very much in all questions. We booked a room for three to four people and could really enjoy the comfort with fridge, balcony with sea view and a lot of space. The hotel and the rooms are very clean. The team is on its feet around the clock to make sure everyone has a great time. The hotel has organized a taxi to the airport and offers room service with drinks and food. Directly opposite is the beach with several bars.

It was a very friendly and helpful hotel staff, They were very absorbent of your needs. Always happy and they made me feel at home. The bed was lovely and they provide a very good breakfast. The swimming pool was nice. But not very big. The hotel is just across the road to the beach so the beach is easy to access. The boy who was there immediately helped with towels as I came out of the swimming pool so they were helpful and observant. The bathrooms are very spacey and they have a good shower room as well. I can really recommend this hotel to any person.

Happy memories from visiting Mirissa. The hotel is perfectly situated 100 m from the beach, close to basically everything, The breakfast buffet gives an enormous variety if lankese food and fruits. The rooms are great and Ac/refrig/ventilator is everything you can ask for. Clean place, even has a swimming pool, the staff is gentle and hospital, helps with everything. Also very close one of the best Kottu-places, just in front of hotel. Atm is superclose.
I would love to come back. Highly recommend.
