This was my first stay in the Bentota Beach hotel and it was a experience I would never forget and left me wanting to return to the hotel. The staff, service, food and beverage and the beach were exceptional. The only negative is the hotel is a bit tired and is in need of a face lift. If it is...

Lunch buffet was excellent. Lots of variety and tasted so fresh. Everywhere you turn, there is always somebody to assist you without you asking for it. Great spot if you are getting here by public transport. Minus - Evening tea might do with more variety of snacks/cake... Pool closes at 6 and its not very convenient. Bar prices are little...

We stayed in Sri Lanka for over 2 weeks, and certainly this hotel was not very good. We were given a "basement" room next the car park. Checked in at around 2PM. The check-in staff were quite rude and very unprofessional. The wifi codes are given and they expire during your stay. The hotel does that so you have to...

An excellent hotel; staff were friendly and consciencious, the huge variety of food presented at the buffet was lovely and the unlimited drinks wrist-band was great for grabbing a quick drink at the poolside.
