MIXED FEELINGS need improvement

Nice rooms and swimming pool
The hotel is well situated at the beach with nice quality rooms. It’s next to the railway station and one does hear the train leaving several times during the day and early morning if your sensitive to that. The beach is of no interest for relaxing and not private with a very rough see. No sunbeds or swimming was done at the beach as well there is a small road between the hotel and beach with many locals. So all guests stay at one of the two swimming pools which are nice. There was a mix of western, local as well the wrong type of Russians and Middle east guests wearing a burka resulting in unacceptable behaviour to my family. Respect comes from two sides I was raised.. and definitely should not have an influence on the overall stay and quality of the hotel. At least to consider this when going there as the hotel does not act on swimming cloth rules or rude Russians shouting to the staff and disturbing other guests. The overall of the hotel looks nice although it’s really below their quality level at the swimming pool. The flooring around the swimming pool has loose parts, sticking out and loose screws so one can hurt their feed. The towels are extremely old with holes and spots. Also the parasols were old with mould and many broken and holes in the fabric. I really do not understand that a hotel at this level dears to offer such a poor standard to guests at the pool. The pool staff was great and of good service. There was a ping pong table for kids. There are different restaurants with prices to the higher end. The food and breakfast was of good quality although limited on western offer. There was a nice fresh pan cake and egg station but on the rest limited compared to peer hotels on that level. Overall very mixed feeling …… and would only stay there on a reduced price offer or better look for alternatives…

Overrated. dirty rooms & toilets. Fungus/mould

location. Walk to the beach
Staff are good and courteous. But the maintenance is terrible. Will not recommend. There are much better definitely 5 star hotels in the same area.

Western prices in Sri Lanka!

friendliness of staff
upon entering the room the floor was dirty and although the staff were as friendly as Sinhalese are, it doesn't really deserve 5 stars. Other examples include lack of bathrobes / floor shoes until requested, the towels were threadbare and needed replacing both in room and at the beach. I would say 4 star and then expect to pay for 4 star, not 5 star food and drink places. Resort is nice and there are some great restaurants, especially 'Malli's'.

Over rated

Only location
The idea and location of the hotel is nice yet many things have ruined our stay as im listing below: 1. Cleanliness: I understand that Tsunami have affected Bentota 10 years ago but for god sake a whole hotel can be constructed from zero in three years. I had booked a standard room to stay in, at first i was taken to room that had the wooden floor completly rottend and ceiling of the tolilet discusting with the light falling off. the curtains of the room were completly ruined and discusting. I was taken to other 4 rooms with almost the same condition until they provided me a free upgrade to really spacious and nice suite. The ceiling was clean as well as the floor thank god but i couldnt use the bath tube as it was so damaged that the jacuzi outlets were all completly rusted as if tsunami happened few days ago. 2. Pest contol: in an climated such as srilanka climate i would expect to find many insects around the rooms or anywhere else but not in my bed, both my wife and I had difficult time sleeping as the we got stung by many little tiny insects and still itching upto now.

Good view but poor room maintainance

Helpful staff, beach view, convenient location
Arrived at Bentota station and surprised to find out the station is maintained by AVANI. Very friendly staff. Efficient in checking-in. Changing my room because of ants coming out for the super sweet soap in the bath room, while the new room also suffered the same problem but no more ants in the bedroom. Helping me to get my books back in the previous room. 2 swimming pools with very warm pool attendants. Great beach side to enjoy sunset or just the morning jogging. Not so many dining places along the beach side if you prefer dining outside of the hotel, so only dined at Malli's for seafood. In all, very pleasant stay despite the ants part.
