We stayed at Morning Star for 10 nights in March 2014. I am so happy we found this wonderful,family-run guesthouse. It is across the road from the beach, has ocean views and beautiful, clean rooms with great bathrooms.Our first stay in Mirissa at the start of our holiday was at a lovely, but very basic guesthouse, so it was nice to finish off with some luxury. The family are incredibly friendly and very professional. They also have the most amazing breakfasts included in the room rate. We had an aircon and fridge which was really convenient on those nights you wanted to stay in with a beer. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The back, garden facing rooms are quieter than the street-facing ones, but it wasn't really an issue.

This is a small new family run hotel in Mirissa. The host and his family are extremely welcoming and nice. The hosts's sons are very friendly and ready to help, always with a smile. The Wifi is the best we had in all Sri Lanka. The breakfast is rich and delicious. We had a nice spacious balcony, though facing the main road which is really noisy during the day. The rooms are well equipped and cozy.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing bakyard

This is a cozy family run hotel. We stayed here for just a few nights and we really liked it. The owners are very welcoming, nice and helpful. Their young sons are also always there with a smile to help whenever you need them. They were really quite flexible with requests for late check-out etc. The rooms are nice and clean and the beds comfortable. It is a few minutes walk from the beach so you cross a small road, walk over the grassy area and there you are. Would definitely recommend it to everyone.

Room Tip: We stayed on the side that opened up to a huge terrace. Nice place to relax.

We spent 2 nights in Mirissa at the Morning Star and it was a great choice. Maybe a bit more expansive than other guest house, but the comfort and the facilities are up to European standards. The furniture is brand new, wifi works really well. This guesthouse is family runned, and they all very welcoming and smiling. Just inform them, if you want to come back to your room after 11pm, because you could find the outside door closed and you have to knock on their house door to let you in. Breakfast was absolutely delicoius!! the best in Sri Lanka!! Mosquito net present, toilet brand new and clean at all time. The beach is 50m away, they organise whale.watching tours but prices on the beach are cheaper.
We definately recommend this place!!

Room Tip: Ask for the dolphin room, quieter!

The staff is very helpful, the breakfast is amazing. The best breakfasts we had in Sri Lanka. The hotel is situated on the Galle-Matara noisy main road that cross Mirissa, so if possible, ask for a room that has view to the backyard.

Room Tip: Rooms that have view to the backyard are more quite.
