Great staff, very friendly and helpful. Rooms where great, very clean and comfortable. Great pool perfect for cooling down after a day in the sun. Great little beach just down the road where you can swim with the turtles. Highly recommended.

Peaceful part of Mirissa
Very good stay overall ! The hotel and room is clean and service is excellent for this price. The place is a bit remote from stores but if you are looking for a calm stay, snorkeling and beach activities, I would definitely recommend the place.

très content de cet hôtel je recommande
Nous avons passés 6 nuits a l’hôtel culture club en petit déjeuner. Hotel a taille humaine très peu de chambre.Très bon wifi. Finalement nous avons pris tout nos repas car restaurant très propre, ils cuisinent devant vous, nourriture fraîche. Le personnel est très très serviable et toujours très disponible pour nous. Les chambres sont immenses et toutes ont vue sur l'océan. La très belle plage et ses tortues sont à 200 mètres.Nous remercions le responsable monsieur Waruna de son accueil et de sa gentillesse ainsi que tous les employés qui nous ont permis de passer de très bonnes vacances

Small and quiet hotel
I had a very nice time at this hotel. It is in a very quiet area, and that was perfect for me for this holiday. 50 meters walk to the beach and if you walk a bit further you get the feeling of more privacy on the beach as well. Small hotel with lovely staff that will help you with anything you need.

I strongly recommend this hotel. The small local beach near by was full of sea turtles. They aren't scared of human being, so you can easily swim with them (you can buy the snorkel gear at the beach). Hotel itself was very clean and modern. The view from the top, where you eat breakfast, was marvelous.
