excellent stay
The room was clean however the bathrooms could do with an upgrade. All facilities were great however it is quite far if you want to do the tourist thing. We were however very stressed to find a rat in our room one morning and had a very disturbed morning thereafter. Needless to say Maintenance was quickly on the scene to remove the rat.

Nice hotel, VFM, good food, right location on the beach, plenty water sports
Booked it through Agoda at best price, we stayed 2N & 3D, nice hotel and good facilities, clean and neat rooms, wonderful architecture, big pool, huge gardens, on the beach. Excellent water sports (but bit expensive, you may try down the road 30-40% lesser). Good food, Bf had lot of varieties, including vegetarian options. Dinner was very good. The bar is good and scenic seating, facing the ocean and garden. Try their Pay 2, stay 3 or free dinner offers, during off season, May onwards. Only con is the price goes very high during peak season.

Service and room was really bad
As we had been booked by agoda on a special deal they checked us into a really bad room the air conditioning hardly worked we slept sweating as the air condition hardly worked and when we complained the engineer just changed the air filter and said it would be ok but nothing changed as there wasn't any blowing coming out of the air conditioner the toilet as well was dirty there was black fungus marks the shower was leaking most importantly we really found it hard to sleep with out the air condition working properly this hotel really needs to renovate the rooms really sucked and really unhappy about our stay ...

family holidays
General service was ok but far for top level, waitress always missatended and food frequently recycled. Bathroom smell to faucet at all times, room is smaller than pictures shows and everybody try to charge more at any surrounding faility, shop or farm

Great Top Hotel and Staff
Great services, room, pools, sports and staff - but avoid the buffet. Take your time to look around and take advantage of all the services in the hotel and locally to the hotel.

Relaxing and value for money!
Friendly Staff, Swimming pool, Cleanliness and room amentites
A delightful stay. My husband and I stayed at the Bentota beach hotel for 2 nights in Feb, 2016. The staff was very helpful in accommodating us and assisting us with travel and sightseeing options. Although, the staff did expect tips often which was a little annoying. The hotel is designed artfully and the room has ample amenities. The breakfast buffet spread was good with abundant variety. The swimming pool was huge! The entrance of the hotel is accessed by the road, and walking towards the road leads to shopping options for souvenirs and other interesting dining option such as "Randholee". The back end of the property opens to Bentota beach which has a public access as well. We felt let down on the amount of exclusive access and seclusion we had envisioned we would get while booking. Nonetheless, a good stay! Thank you!
