First of all the hotel advertised that it is located in mirissa which is the main reason we booked here when it is not, it is actually in welligama which is a fishing village. The rooms are clean however, we did not want to stay here and kept going out because the service was terrible, the food was bad (it took such a long time, and all the bread and croissants at breakfast were really stale), and the staff were really pushy and wouldn't leave us alone. I wouldn't recommend staying here, especially if you are all women. The men serving us lingered around to the point of making us uncomfortable, despite us looking the other way or walking away and would stare at us for long periods of time which made us feel unsafe. One night we had a knock on the door late, at around 10 or 11pm, my friend and I were in bed so our other friend answered the door, a male staff member let himself into the room without permission and said we didn't sign our bill (which could have waited until the morning) when my friend signed it and handed it back he grabbed her hand and wouldn't let go...she had to push him out the door and was terrified. We left the next morning and found another hotel despite already having payed for another two nights. This place has no atmosphere and they do not respect your privacy. It is also really overpriced for what it is. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. There are so many lovely places to stay in mirissa.
