Very friendly and helpful staff, particularly the restaurant and cleaning staff. Hotel rooms are beginning to require upgrading particularly the bathrooms. Pool and beach location first class and will definitely return and recommend it to my family and friends one of whom has already booked.

The nice garden with many beautiful tropical flowers, epiphyte orchids, pleasant temperature, and a nice piece of tropical ocean were my best impacts from Vivanata Bentota. The staffs and reception people are very kind. The rooms clean two times a day. For full board you have to pay for drinks (except water) for an acceptable price. The only deficiency: most...

Lovely hotel in good location.
