We are a party of four adults just returned to the UK from the Hotel Mermaid and Club, Mahawaskaduwa, Kalutara, Sri Lanka. We spent 10 brilliant nights at the Mermaid and experienced the excellent deluxe rooms which were very clean, well presented and comfortable with a great view of the palm trees, beach and the Indian ocean. From the instant...

We stayed at this hotel from 26 April for ten nights. We had booked a deluxe sea view room which is exactly what we got. The room was clean, spacious and had the view as promised. There was a fully stocked mini bar and a kettle, tea and coffee were provided. The food was plentiful and of good quality, several...

Hotel was exceptional. The rooms were spotless, food was amazing, staff very friendly (as are the chipmunks!). I am not a fan of all-inclusive beach holidays but I would do it again courtesy of the Mermaid Hotel.

The Mermiad Hotel has been reviewed many times so not o much detail here. What an amazing hote, the room, the restaraunt and food, and the staff are all excellent. If there are any negatives at all they are very small, the rooms would benifit from a coat of paint and the wifi signal could do with a boost. Apart...

Exceeded all expectations: airport transfers, varied buffets, abundant fruit, friendly hands-on hotel management, great beach - we swam every day in the wonderful Indian Ocean. Helpful & well informed local Mercury rep checks on everything and fixes excursions. Will return.

I will be totally honest when saying the only reason we booked this hotel was after thoroughly reading this hotel's reviews on TripAdvisor (and the reviews of other shortlisted hotel options) and I was dubious about as I would generally not book a 3 star hotel and this was also my first "all-inclusive" holiday, so I did wonder about quality...

I’m sure you will have seen that Mermaid hotel is undergoing renovations to its rooms. We had experience of 3 of the standard rooms during our stay at the hotel, due to a problem of an intermittent bad smell in two of them. First of all, I would like to say that hotel staff handled the problems with our rooms...

Rooms are very clean...
