A lovely family run guest house run by the very friendly Yooshe and his mum, five minutes walk from the beach. Yooshe helped organise trips and sat and had a chat and a drink in the evening, which was nice. Mirissa is a lovely place, a great white sand beach and very chilled atmosphere. You can party in the evening...

What a disappointment.... We found the place to be very unprepared for guests... The beds had old, random sheets, we had to ask for blankets, the toilet didn't flush properly, and things were generally shabby.... The only plus side I can think of was the staff. Johan(the owner's son, I think) was very friendly, and helpful. Thankful, there was a...

Basic guesthouse just off the main road and about 10 minute walk from the beach. The rooms are fine (we stayed in 2 different triple rooms) but the place is so badly run. We had booked a room in advance but there was no one at the hotel when we arrived so we had to get the managers phone number...

Having booked on line many months before, I emailed the hotels a few weeks prior to our arrival to check we still had a room and everything was OK. They responded saying the booking was confirmed. Unfortunately when we arrived they had double booked our room!! Giving it to another 2 girls who had arrived about 20 minutes before us....

The upstairs room was clean and spacious, with a large queen size bed and a single bed. Good bathroom. Aircon worked well and quietly. Verandah outside faced the road but very private and had seating for sundowners. Lovely garden to sit in and enjoy. Short walk to Mirrissa Beach, but far enough away from the party crowd. Great hosts (Johan...

We stayed in Mirissa for 5 nights - this was more than we had intended but Kismet Rest was such a lovely base we asked to extend. As a family of 4 (2 children - 5 & 7yrs) we were looked after wonderfully. Johan, son of the owner, was incredibly helpful. Johan's mother prepared a lovely meal one evening adjusting...
