At first I thought why would this simple place be included into Lonely Planet guide. But then I realized why. This place has its own spirit of positive experience. The staff is more than friendly. We booked Whales watching, tour to Udawalawe National park and ride from there so as spa. I’d like to underline the trip to Udawalawe cuz we booked it quite late and Poppies manager did his best to organize it for us right away. It was an amazing experience. Location is so perfect, close to the road and grocery shop but distant from traffic noise. Visal is the nicest person!

Nice garden, friendly and helpfull people. But definitely overpriced, maybe this was because of the Christmas holiday (50 euros a night without breakfast). In the bathroom was mould and unfortunately we encountered (two of the three nights) cockroches in our room. The staff never heard other guests complain about this, so maybe we had bad luck.

The guesthouse is located in the second row from the main road and also very calm. Just across the road, you’re at the beach. It is a two story building with a nice garden. All rooms have a balcony or terrace that faces the garden. Rooms are spacious, mattress is comfortable,shower is hot. What do you need more? Because there are many mosquitos we appreciated very much the big mosquito net and also all other fighting against them. The people are very nice, cleaning team is very cute,manager helpful organizing whale watching tour. Can recommend it. Everything fine😎

Poppies is located across the street from the main beach and also has a lot of restaurants close by. The rooms are pretty basic. Our air conditioning made weird loud noises and wasn't very effective. Beds and pillows are not very comfortable but in the end it gave us a fine place to stay in a good location.

We had a wonderful stay at Poppies during Christmas, with Mr Vishal at the reception who was nice enough to allow us an early check in and recommended great places to see. The location is perfectly close to the beach with lovely hammocks with lots of trees within the compound giving a lovely shade. Definitely a bang for the buck, maybe beyond!

Went there after a recommendation from a fellow traveller. He was right, it is a great place. Situated just off the main road near a good restaurant - Big Belly Roti Hut. The rooms were very clean, spacious with a hammock and a balcony (upstairs). They arranged our Whale watching experience with Raja & the Whales, again which was excellent. Breakfast is available in the courtyard as well. Recommended.

Great staff, clean room, bathroom wasn't a wet room (yay), first time in Sri Lanka we have had hammocks on our balcony which was great. Good WiFi and hotel booked tuk tuks for us when needed for a reasonable price. Air con rooms were only $4 more and well worth it! Secluded garden area, off main road, quiet and lovely.

We were staying 4 days in Mirissa, we stopped in this cute guesthouse, away from the main road (more noisy). We had a room at the first floor, spacious and clean for 5500Rs/night. It was absolutely perfect and quiet. With a small balcony and hamac to enjoy the sun. Morning staff was as usual really helpful and smily! They recommend Secret Root Spa and Raja Boat for watching Blue Whales. We haven’t been disappointed, both were super ! Frambi&Iris (French Mom&Daughter)

We stayed 4 nights and had chosen a room with fan only. The hotel is lovely behind the Main Street /Mirissa beach. The room was clean, bed and pillows were comfortable, and the shower was a very good with hot water and good pressure. We didn’t take the breakfast onsite, many places around. Each room has its small terrasse with hamac in the courtyard. Service was efficient and maids were very attentive and kind with us.
