Clean, quiet hotel. No more, no less.”
I booked Esprit D'ici thinking it had already been paid for through Agodoa - which failed to tell me it was not. Not only that, but the hotel then expected to be paid in CASH! It was no small sum as we stayed for 3 nights. This was incredibly disappointing on the part of Agoda & the hotel. Agoda will say they booked through Booking.com (defeats the purpose, no?) which is a petty excuse. For this cash transaction piece, I cannot recommend the hotel. In terms of the basics, they had big, clean beds and rooms, clean bathrooms, clean lobby, a fair breakfast each morning, decent swimming pool, nice outside shower, and that's about it. Staff was friendly even if lacking in English. Management was friendly too though overly guarded with the wi-fi password which seemed to change each day. Even when connected, the wi-fi bandwidth was incredibly poor. It only worked sometimes. It's not a convenient location and will cost a Rs 400 round-trip rickshaw ride to Mirissa beach each. Easily walkable for adults but we had a 6-year-old who could make the walk once or twice, but not all the time. We received no helpful leads on who to use for diving, good restaurants, or other local must-see sights. It was a fend-for-yourself environment. In all, the hotel served it's purpose by providing us with a clean, comfortable, safe place to sleep. Until they take credit cards &/or make it clear up front that they are cash-only, I am hard-pressed to recommend it.

Nice Hotel, Plenty of self entertainment”
Stayed here for 2 nights. Room is basic without TV but clean. Dont worry though, there's a pool table, 2 ping ping tables, and countless board games to entertain yourself with. Location is near the end of mirissa, which makes walking out troublesome (but you can get a tuk tuk easily). We mainly went surfing in Weligama and went back to mirissa for the seafood dinner!

Bliss!”
My room was absolutely spotless, which is always a good sign, the air con was v. efficient (I had to turn it off at times because it was so good at combatting the heat) and, my personal benchmark, the shower, was brilliant. The staff and owners were all very friendly and quickly made me feel comfortable. The food was simple - but I enjoyed it and ate there on each of my four nights stay. I thought that the Esprit was excellent value for money and would have no hesitation in recommending it if your budget is around £30/night. The main beach at Mirissa is only 1km away and I see that other reviewers mention having to walk along the road. I didn't find this a problem and anyway on the second day found a cut-through halfway along (just past the Glass House restaurant as you head towards the beach). This brings you out on a beautiful small crescent of sand which was virtually deserted when I visited - though if you want the main beach, just keep walking In the direction of Mirissa for another half kilometre. I travelled from Colombo on the train. Tip 1: try and get a seat on the right-hand side of the carridge (as you face the direction of travel) to get the best views of the sea. Tip 2: in Colombo I got on at Fort, however the train originates from Maradana, one stop away, and this would have given a better chance of finding a seat. The train was already crowded when it arrived at Fort so I, and the hundred(s) of other passengers waiting had to fight our way on. Tip 3: Weligama is the closest station to Esprit and that is where I got off. Returning to Colombo it is better to get on at Matara for the same reason as tip 2.

Excellent find”
We really enjoyed Esprit D'Ici. Apart from troubles with an air conditioner (which resulted in switching rooms), the stay was excellent. The group running the resort were very nice and the food was great. Prior to our stay, we had a hard time contacting the hotel by phone and e-mail regarding driver accommodations; ultimately, the hotel referred us to two local places for the driver to stays and Esprit D'Ici included the meals. I would definitely recommend this hotel; the cleanliness, atmosphere, and food were some of the best we encountered in our two-week trip of Sri Lanka.

Lovely room in a friendly hotel with excellent service and a very good choice in Mirissa”
The room was lovely with a great view from the balcony (we asked for a room at the front and quiet). The main road is in front between us and the beach but it is an easy road to cross, more importantly the hotel is set back far enough that you cannot really hear the road and sitting on the balcony reading is very relaxing.

Basic budget hotel but great for a one-night stay”
Only stayed for one night as we travelled to Mirissa specifically to see the whales - located well in that sense. Staff were friendly enough. Rooms were big and we were happy with our stay.
