We stayed at Central Beach Inn for 3 nights, and it was good, assuming you are looking for cheap and cheerful. The rooms are small and basic, with mosquito nets. The water pressure in the bathroom was very weak and there was no hot water. But the owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. The food was very good,...

The location of this beach bar is quite nice. However the service was unacceptable. We waited ~20 mins until the staff recognized us. Another ~20 mins for drinks.... we ordered 3 times food which was not served at the same time but with 10 mins break between each dish... Avoid this place unless you have plenty of time and patience...

loved this place. The stuff is awesome, makes you feel right at home. Comfy chill-lounge to enjoy some beers or cocktails made by super friendly guys behind the bar. The restaurant has very good food and the vibes are awsome!!! Best spot on the beach

We had a reallly good time here. Me and my husband enjoyed it a lot, The staff is really friendly, especially Nadun was very caring and made our evening at central beach inn very special.

We stayed for 6 nights and it was just wonderful. The team was great, the room was very clean and in the bathroom was a new shower. We would wish to come back once again to enjoy also the great food and the cocktails of the bar and restaurant. Thank you for that wonderful stay directly at the beach!

Stopped by here for breakfast while travelling to Matara with family. Refused to serve us just because we were locals. Racistsm at it's best. Heads up for all travelers, avoid Central Beach Inn at all costs.

The central beach Inn is located directly on the beach which is very nice, but the rooms were not as nice as expected. The fan was very noisy and we couldn't sleep at night but we were allowed to change rooms after one night. The second room was OK. The staff was not very helpful.

I am an Australian citizen born in Sri Lanka. I have visited Central Beach inn while travelling in Mirissa and decided to order some lunch and drinks for us. But instead of lunch the waiter ask us to leave the premises as they dont serve locals as the place is for foreigners only. Then I asked how do you determine...
