I cannot believe that this is a 4 star hotel. Firstly, from the moment we stepped in, the management proved to be inflexible and I accommodating. Despite complications on the part of the tour agency, the management made us wait for 2 hours at the reception. They were not hospitable at all, and in fact, made us feel very unwelcome....

Dear Marsnickers, Thank you for having chosen Mandara Resort. However, we are extremely sorry to note your comments with regard to our services. We only had to keep you waiting as we were trying to upgrade you to the seaside room although you have paid for a standard room overlooking the river. That should not be construed as a lapse...

Room 204 - Excellent Large Room with a shower and a Jacuzzi, overlooking the beach and the pool. This maybe the off season, but the service from the front of staff, to the Waiting Staff was excellent.

This hotel is on Weligama beach not Mirissa, so if you want the action and nightlife in Mirissa you'll have to drive there about 5 minutes away. Nice pool and our room was in the front facing the beach and ocean. There's a bit of an ugly fence separating the hotel from the beach which was a pity. Great sunsets!...

We only had a brief stay here but we were very impressed. Large, clean, comfortable rooms with wi-fi, pool and bar facilities. The food was excellent and the staff were friendly & helpful. The hotel is a wee bit away from the nearby town and has a nice sea front walk/beach - unfortunately the shoreline has a lot of rubbish/plastic...

The hotel is situated on one end of Weligama bay, so you need a tuc tuc to reach Mirissa. The rooms are very spacious and with a quite cool multilevel layout. Wooden floors and bathroom made out of cement add to the "beach house" atmosphere. Our room was 94, which was facing the ocean and had a small balcony too.

Very nice hotel, great location and brilliant pool. Lovely modern rooms and very clean. Only downside is Wifi is only accessible at a decent speed in the main building not in rooms.
