    Good location at the quieter end of town. Just over the road from the beach. Good restaurants along the beach. Bed and breakfast were excellent, best omlet we had in Sri Lanka and the host was very helpful and friendly. The air con was a blessing and everything was very clean.

    Near the beach, too noisy place”
    Location, breakfasts, they fed the squirrels every day :)
    We stayed there 3 nights. Banana Garden Hotel is 50 m from the beach, but also near the road. We could not open the windows, because at all there was the noise from the road (unfortunately and for the last time we choosed the room without A/C, so it was too hot during the night and day. The room was quite ok. The price is quite high because of the location (I guess). Good breakfasts (hoppers/pancake/rotti; tea/coffee, fresh fruit), although they did not tell us about the final price for the breakfast. After that they try to put it right. We were not angry with them :)

    Charming.”
    Owner.
    This place is adorable. It is just a few minutes walk from the beach, and the owner is delightful. He was helpful with arranging a tuk-tuk, and gave good advice about the location. After traveling for several weeks, we declined the sweet breakfast options and instead ate cereal we had purchased. Everyone was really kind to supply milk, bowls and spoons. Great option in Mirissa!

    Excellent value for money”
    Staff, free breakfast, cleanliness
    Had an awesome stay at Banana Gardens. What you get for the price you pay is incredible - laundry is free, breakfast is free (and really good), and rooms are nice. The best thing about this place though is definitely the owner - he is so thoughtful and hospitable, and makes a massive effort to ensure his guests' stay is as comfortable as possible. There is even sun lotion which they provide free of charge. When we needed our laundry done pretty urgently, he got it done for us that evening even though they had already finished doing the washing for the day. The towels that they provide in the rooms are the best I've had whilst on my travels, and you can order tea or coffee free of charge anytime you like - they really have gone the extra mile. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks guys!

    kind family, warm welcome and location
    My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights and were not disappointed. We received a very warm welcome. The location is perfect, we hired a scooter and Mirissa was a great base for us. Perhaps the accommodation needs a lick of paint to update it but overall a very positive experience.

    Lovely chilled place to stay”
    The staff, the food, the beds!
    I really enjoyed my stay here. The outside is a little rugged and could do with some work - there is a stark contrast to the outside and the rooms though which are beautiful! Lovely bed, decorations, nice clean bathroom although my room had no hot water. They give you a key for the front door as well as your room key so it kind of felt like living in an apartment. The rating would have been higher if they served evening food - as a girl travelling alone it was a shame that when it gets dark at around 6:30pm I had to walk (only 5 mins!) in semi darkness to the hotels along the beach to get dinner. It wasn't much of a hustle but I didn't like walking along in the dark much, and it's the walking back again when it's even later you have to consider. Don't get me wrong I had no trouble at all, but the option would have been nice when you would rather have a nice dinner at you hotel. Overall lovely place to stay though, and breakfast was lovely.

    The staff and the owners sons excellent language skills.
    No AC so for hot for me now in late April with only fan. Ok to borrow the kitchen to cook your own meal which really is s fantastic.offer for example your staying a longer time. The owners son is such a nice person. Helpful and friendly I really y recommend this Guesthouse if you don't need absolutely access to the beach. Just a few minutes walk over the road andn through a hotels garden and you are at one of the end of the beach.

    Quiet location, Close to beach,
    Guest house run by friendly family. Nice cold welcome drink after bus trip was very welcome. Didn't eat at guest house so can't comment on food, but was pleasant place to stay and lot of restaurants/bars on beach. Across road from beach but traffic noise wasn't a problem. Room was fan only but that was no problem. Good value for location.

    A Wonderful Stay at Banana Garden”
    Perfect Location, welcoming hotel, treated like a friend not just a guest
    We booked for one night and opted to stayed for the next 4 nights too. The hotel is located across the road behind Mirissa beach, which provided a nice buffer from the loud bars that stay open late at the beach. The hotel is airy and spacious, with lots of light. We had a fan room and with the ocean breeze I never missed AC. The bathroom was western style with a separate shower area and HOT water! The balcony is the social center where a bountiful breakfast is served when you are ready to eat every morning. The hotel is family run, Jehan and his father went out of their way to make sure that we had everything we needed AND a great time. Getting to know them was a highlight of our visit. Their inviting/social nature set the tone for rest of the guests and as a result we befriended other travelers (mostly couples) also staying there. This was the perfect place for us to discover the south coast - whale watching, tea plantations, surfing (for the experienced at Mirissa) and my first lesson at nearby Welligama Bay. The only negative part of our visit was leaving!

    Zentrale Lage, sehr gut geführtes Guesthouse, traumhafte Strände direkt um die Ecke
    Das Banana Garden Hotel ist in einem sehr schönen Palmengarten gelegen und liegt ca. 2 Gehminuten vom Strand entfernt. Das ist sehr angenehm, da es dadurch sehr ruhig ist und man vom Nachtleben am Strand nichts mitbekommt. Die Eigentümer (Vater und Sohn) sind sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Unser Aufenthalt in Mirissa ist Dank der traumhaften Strände und nicht zuletzt wegen des sehr angenehmen Aufenthalts im Banana Garden eines unserer Highlights in Sri Lanka gewesen.
