We stayed for two nights. It is located close to everything which is a plus. It is also quiet and has hot water and air conditioning. those were all great and for the price we paid I have no real complaints. The staff was a bit aloof and the breakfast was not great.

If you want a jungle setting then look no further. It is not luxury as it is going back to nature. Staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. We booked a safari with the guys and this was just breath-taking brilliant. Our driver certainly knew his stuff and he missed nothing. Loved it.

The hotel is just 5 mins from the beach and faces a tiny river stretch. It's a good budget hotel with decent sized rooms accompanied with a small but functional bathroom. They provide a mosquito net. No drinking water bottle but the same can be bought from near by shops. Several eateries like amar singhe that provide good dinner options...

Really nice setting off a side road so less noise then the busy main road. Short walk to the beach. Lovely staff and tasty breakfasts. Service a little slow (pretty standard for Sri Lanka) so if you are on a time frame then speak to the staff prior to breakfast. We were never in a rush so it didn't matter...

We stayed 4 nights in Riverside cabanas and we had a pleasant stay. They are located quite close to the beach. The staff was amazing and super helpful with everything. Good air conditioning and a fan kept the room cool. The room itself was not spectacular but good enough for us. We would recommend this place.

The Hotel, the Location is very nice and good! The rooms are big enough, they are tidy and clean. The Garden is kept well and the staff are very friendly. The good thing is, the Hotel is located very near to the beach and it is stillma quiet place!

These "cabanas" are located a few hundred meters from the main road (and the beach). Our host was fantastic - offering helpful tips about the spas in the area, arranging our tuk-tuk travel, and in general being very friendly.

the location of the hotel is very good with lots of shops and restaurants nearby. But the hotel is very shabby and garden side area is very dark with no lights till you reach to your room which is very in attractive. The non- a.c rooms were very hot and congested with no air ventilators. The a.c charges are unnecessarily...

I booked this hotel for two nights through an online hotel website. When I arrived, I was told the hotel was full, and they didn't have a room for me. I told them I booked and paid for it online, and I was asked to see my online confirmation. I showed it to them, and suddenly there was an available...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rinerside Cabanas are situated at Mirissa, southern coastal line of Sri Lanka. It's only 100m (3 minutes walk) away from the beautiful Mirissa beach, yet with nicely landscaped garden and tranquil surroundings, and so you are away from Colombo-Matara road traffic noise and sometimes beach hazel. Riverside Cabanas have both AC and Non AC rooms and its specious restaurant caters both local and western food at an attractive price. ... more   less
