Not far from the beach and set back from the road, this place was quiet and a good stay for 2 nights. Room and bathroom were spacious. However the room did get very very hot so be prepared. Friendly owners.
The room is very clean, comfortable and a very short walk from the beach. The ceiling fan works and is quite powerful, always nice during those hot nights. Very friendly owners. The only down side is the unpleasant odor in the area.
If you want a clean, spacious budget guest house, Amara is a good place to stay. It has no A/C or hot water but the room we had included a strong fan to keep us comfortable and we really didn't need hot water for a shower after a warm day with no A/C. The guest house is about a 2 minute walk to the main road and bus stop and 5 minute walk to the beach. Just ask the bus driver to drop you off at Udipila Junction from the main road and ask directions to Amara. This is right centre in Mirissa and not Matara as suggested in Trip Advisor.
If you have a couple of room options, look at the bathroom first as ours had water stains by the shower and the toilet did not flush properly. With a spruce up to the bathroom, some brighter light bulbs and a fresh coat of paint, the room would be quite nice. There is also a clothes line right outside as well so you can hang your wet clothes and towels and a water tap to clean your feet before entering your room. The set up is in a nice enclosed garden like setting with 5 motel type rooms. Each as a sitting area outside the front door and wifi is strong even though the main office is in the house across the street. The owners are nice and also arranged our whale watching trip cheaper than what was advertised along the main street. We had less people on our boat and while we did not get coffee, we received breakfast(juice, water and 3 breakfast pastries), lifejackets and a great view and a tuk tuk ride to the boat area as we had to get there between 6:30-7am. The walk back into town was 15 minutes afterwards and it was nice to walk after being on the boat for 3 hours. We also saw a few Blue Whales and several schools of dolphins.
Le camere sono semplici, c'è tutto quello che serve e nella media è una delle migliori guest house che abbiamo vissuto nello Sri Lanka. Bisogna fare attenzione però a dove è ubicata la camera cercate di prendere quelle più interne possibili altrimenti rischiate, la mattina presto, di essere svegliati da qualche tuk tuk fomentato o dal tizio che vende ciambelle col suo furgoncino con casse super potenti e musichetta odiosa...I proprietari sono persone veramente uniche, cordiali disponibili alla mano e molto flessibili. I prezzi sono molto bassi e in 20 secondi si arriva sulla spiaggia, non c è concorrenza rispetto alle guest house sulla spiaggia che propongono camere simili ma con prezzi triplicati.
This place may be close to the beach and all, but hey, a 3-minute walk or a 5-minute walk doesn't really matter.
The room I stayed in was not very clean and the internet router is located at the familys place across the street, so it won't reach any of the rooms. This is a common problem at a lot of guesthouses in Mirissa.
You will find better places if you take your backpack and wander further down the road.
I want to recommend Amara Guest because it'm more than an ordinary guest house. The environment is excellent, with nature and silence all around...the owners treat me like a member of their family, helping me with every needs and wishes.... I was there last year in july- august and I will go there also this summer. It's a perfect location for couples and families. Thanks a lot Rossella
The location of this place is great, just 100 metres from the beach at Mirissa, th family that run the place are charming and will help you with your travel plans. The cottages are not new, but have everything you need (apart from hot water) which is the norm in this place in the budget end of the market. There is also wifi available and the family will cook you a hearty breakfast for next to nothing. We paid 1500 LKR for a night, but the prices may change depending on how busy they are.
Долго искали, где остановиться в Мериссе. На первой линии было всё занято, а в других местах ну очень дорого! И наконец-то мы заехали в Amara Guest. Нас встретил хозяин, очень приятный и доброжелательный человек. Цена комнаты оказалась более чем приемлемой. Внутри всё опрятно, не жарко даже без кондиционера. Вода только холодная, но этого было достаточно. Очень удобно, что можно было припарковать байк во дворе. Вокруг всё зелено, тихо и спокойно. До пляжа совсем близко пешком через дорогу. Вокруг и на пляже много мест, где можно перекусить. Пляж в Мериссе отличный! Всем рекомендую этот гест!!!

Amara Guest is just across the road from the wonderful beach of Mirissa, just 5 minutes walking distance. The rooms are comfortable and clean, there is wifi internet and air conditioning.
I stayed there 2 nights in November 2012 and then came back and stayed another night. I enjoyed the place a lot and Mirissa is my favorite beach in Sri Lanka. The price was reasonable and the owner and his family were very welcoming and try to make their guests feel at home and as comfortable as possible.
Hope you'll have a great stay in Mirissa at Amara Guest!
