Perfect place close to the beach
We stayed just three nights in off season to relax from travelling through Sri Lanka. It's a perfect place to be at the beach in just one minute but quiet enough to relax and hear nothing but the waves. Very nice family which helped to organize our next trip to Colombo.

Perfect for some people, bad for others
The location, the staff, the charm
There are a lot of bad reviews of this place which I do understand, but this is really just down to the wrong type of person going there. If you want a nice clean western style hotel where you'll be pampered, this isn't for you. If you want to chill out, drink beer, chat to other travellers, and get help planning your trip around sri lanka, you'll love it. It's a a bit rugged - the bathrooms look dirty, and there was a scorpion in my bath tub - but it's a great relaxed atmosphere and Dinu is a great guy who will help you plan the rest of your trip. This is a place for travellers, not holiday makers.

No guest without complains
close to the beach
There was absolutely no guest without complains. The whole room was stinking like a toilet. The toilet flush did not work and the staff could not repair it within 1 full day. So we didn't have water in the bathroom. Althogh the staff tried to clean the room, it was not really tidy. We switched to the "bigger" rooms on the second night, but they have also been not clean. At least they have been nicer and didn't smell. The bathtube looked like self painted and washed out. The staff looked more for their own fun in the evening than being there for the guests. Also they gave kids under age, who travelled with their family, alcohol! Not worth to go there, even if it is very close to the beach.

Nice but extremely noisy from restaurants at night
Close to the beach, friendly staff
It was disappointing that Mirissas nightlife,close to Dinu`s, was so loud and lasted until sunrise. So this is not the place to be if you want a quiet place to spend your holiday.

Smelly room & broken engine on the whale safari
The food was OK, the location, only place with rooms left
The room and the bed smelled of fungus. Don't do the whale safari (it ended up with the boat drifting at sea and a 6 hour delay). I only got to see one tail in the distance :(

Bit dirty, but nice owners
Close to the beach but not on it
For 2 nights Dinu's was an ok place to stay. It wasn't amazingly clean but the bathrooms were ok. The sheets and mosquito nets could use changing as they are really dirty and it would be helpful if there were more mats to wipe your feet on as it is surrounded by red dirt and there are no taps to wash your feet before going into the room. Overall the owners and staff were really nice and the breakfast was good and hearty but the rooms weren't anything like they're described on lonely planet and you could probably get the same quality room for the same price right on the beach at mirissa.

Welcome to your bungalow - NOT !
May be suitable for backpackers on a real tight budget
We booked and paid for a 'bungalow' - the owner has no idea of what a bungalow is. He calls his 'upstairs' rooms bungalows. he put us into the block as featued in the photos. There is another block closer to the beach, which is far more presentable. It had been raining when we arrived. Shame we had already paid in full or we would have taken an about-turn in an instant. The entrance on the verandah was green and slippery. The room was dark, smelly, full of mosquitos, filthy smelly towels, floor covered in sand & dust, cobwebs, delipidated furniture included a bed with dreadful pillows,absolutely filthy mosquitos net that was ripped in parts, an old cupboard, a towel rack with nails sticking out of it that ripped my dress as I walked past it. We found it hard to believe that the owner had such a hide to present the room in such a manner & charge so much for it - and the fact that he gets away with it. The next morning we complained bitterly and were moved to the other block which was far better, yet still overpriced.

Cool surfer place without real sea view
Excellent food!
Dinu's is located near the beach but without real sea view. Ok, you hear the ocean and may have a glimpse of it between the trees but that's not really sea view for me.. It's located next to the surfing part of the beach and have a laid-back feeling of it. Exept from The owner who is like an unliked pop-up all the time with new offers about massage and whale watching. He even sat down with us at breakfast and tried to sell stuff to us. Pretty pushy, pretty annoying. But the restaurant has great food made by Mama her self! You should try it out! Much better than the beach restaurant which can be a bit boring tastely.
