We had a lovely stay at Riverside Cabanas, a peaceful small resort in the middle of the hectics of Mirissa (side street of the busy main street, 2 minutes walk from the beach). A large garden with a central terrace and monkeys in the trees. We stayed 4 nights and the room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was included but...

Factoring in the location and also the season (peak) this was definitely budget priced and delivered. Staff was very helpful. Location wise, close to the beach (walkable) and also better than staying at Galle which can be crowded at Christmas/New Year time. Staff helped us on getting us linked up for Whale Watching, however do negotiate and prices will be...

we stayed at Riverside Cabanas for 3 nights. Even though the room was not that big, it had everything we needed. Breakfasts are good and staff is very nice and friendly. The walk to the beach took us around 10 minutes and there are two nice places serving rotties on the way.

We spent two nights in this nice guesthouse; the staff is really friendly and happy to help booking tours and activities. It is located next to a small river, so there are quite some mosquitos. But keeping the doors shut and the mosquito net help having a good sleep! We would definitely recommend this place to others!

Good location - very close to the beach and No.1 Dewmini Roti Shop. Room had poor lighting and a few mosquitos, however the staff sprayed mosquito repellent in the room when we asked. Fine for a few nights stay.

The rooms are clean and modern with comfortable beds and nice furniture including wardrobe, dresser and bench with a good sized mosquito net over the bed. Everything looks modern and the style and decor in the reception and dining area is nicely done. It is located right on the river in a pretty garden where troops of monkeys pass by....

Well kept basic rooms backing onto a river with a friendly bunch of guys running the place. Nice two story cabana designs backing onto a lawn. It's on the jungle side of the Galle road but very close to amenities and around 5-8 minute walk to beach. There is a path to the beach around 20 metres up on the...

What it was supposed to be two nights stay ended being one week. We really like Mirissa and definitively we wanted to stay in Riverside Cabanas. The place is quiet, nice rooms with shower and breakfast was delicious. Anyway, the best part was the helpful staff, specially Olsi Gomez. They made us feel very comfortable and any question we had...

We stayed at Riverside Cabanas for 4 nights and had a really good time there.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rinerside Cabanas are situated at Mirissa, southern coastal line of Sri Lanka. It's only 100m (3 minutes walk) away from the beautiful Mirissa beach, yet with nicely landscaped garden and tranquil surroundings, and so you are away from Colombo-Matara road traffic noise and sometimes beach hazel. Riverside Cabanas have both AC and Non AC rooms and its specious restaurant caters both local and western food at an attractive price. ... more   less
