The remake of 'the Shining '

location _location _location

The positive aspect: location, the beach is good but dangerous, we nearly saw a guest drowned, our room was clean. The negative aspects are many: food 🍲 hygiene is the big issue, if not for Amal Restaurant and Bar next door who charges an arm and a leg for clean and tasty food, I am sure we would end up with gastroenteritis as some guests did. EU hygiene levels are non existent in Sri Lanka. The owners had a bad habit asking you , where are you going? and spying on your conversions ...the owners and staff came out of central casting from Kubricks The Shining. Very wierd bunch.

We had 7 wonderful days at Palm Beach Inn & Sea Shells Cabanas. The management is totally friendly and help where there can. We recommend this place for everybody. And order a curry. It is just delicious! If we have the chance we will come again for sure.

Basic hotel with a good location near the beach

Very near to the beach, kind staff, good food
7.3
Actually I loved the place because it's unbelievably near to the beach, just few steps and you will be able to see the lovely dreamy beach, the food was very good and the hotel is under a family business management, therefore the manager, his son and his wife were trying to satisfy us using every single mean, the rooms are under classification including the bed sheets, floors, bathroom and facilities. The hotel is very near to the express road and the city center therefore I advise you to not hire a vehicle for your stay in Bentota also don't hire a TukTuk for full day trip because they shall give you high prices "we took Nissan Sunny for 4000 LKR", take the TukTuk to the city center for 100 LKR only which is nothing.

Beautiful quiet beach

location, price and staff
8.3
The cabana was in a lovely peaceful garden very close to the beach - just across a railway track and down a short path lined with mangroves. We went in low-season and the sea was pretty rough, that's nature though and obviously not the fault of the manager! The bed was comfortable although there was no top sheet, it wasn't a problem though. The aircon was good and the bathroom was fine although it was a bit cramped and there were problems with the water pressure. Breakfast was delicious and was served on the balcony overooking the garden. Overall it's most suited to back-packers. It was in a good location, good value for money and the lady running the place was lovely.

Low standard hotel in poor condition.

Nothing.
4.3
I actually left this hotel half an hour after arriving. the cabana I was assigned was in poor condition with a rickety and sloping floor. It had a dank mildewy smell inside and was a little sickening to me. Because I adjudged I could not put up with this odour I declined to stay. I found the staff rude and unhelpful and the buildings are NOT beachside ... about 200-250 metres to the beach.too far to be classed a beach hotel. Regarding food, I cannot classify this as I did not stay. However I gave a 4 so as to be able to submit the review.

Great Beach, very friendly staff

Nice Garden, Very friendly and helpful workers, Amazingly huge and empty private beach.

Our stay was really great. We talked a lot with the friendly staff. Went swimming on the best and biggest beach on our holiday in Sri Lanka. Many nice restaurants are close by and the workers organized cool day trips for us to see the local temples and nature. Tuk Tuk drivers were also very helpful and friendly. We did a very nice boat trip up to the Bentota river and saw Crocodiles, Sea Eagles, Water Monitors, Snakes and Giant Bats, while sipping on King Coconuts. Excellent visit all together!

It's all about the location

Close to beach, breakfast at time to suit you, price
7.7
This is very basic accommodation, but the staff are very friendly and the breakfast was good served at anytime to suit you. The cabanas are next to the railway line so there is train noise, but it is the one minute walk to the most wonderful beach that makes this all worth the stay. This really is the best part of the beach in Bentota, a couple of miles of sand very deserted. Fishermen go out early and you can watch them bring in the catch. Worst thing was the tepid water and small shower! But overall excellent value
Daniel S. Couples Sweden, January 7, 2014
Wonderful and quiet long beach.

Helpful/friendly staff, close to the beach, good internet connection
6.7
We spent our 2 last nights at P.B.I (Total 18 in Sri Lanka). The beach was one of the best on our journey, it´s a good choice if you want a quiet beach! The staff was very friendly and helpful and did arrange a couple of different tours. We only took the "river safari", which was great. We saw alot of different animals up close and we also had the opportunity to hold baby-crocodiles. Mike (the hotels own tuk-tuk driver) took us on some good cheap shopping and also to a great restaurant. We had our doubts before we booked this hotel because many people hade written about the noisy railway. But we had no problem and didnt even notice it, because there where only a few trains passing by each day. Some things we did´nt appreciate was the food (ok breakfast), but it was great restaurants near by. If you book a room choose one with airconditioning, because it was very hot in our room. Also we only had cold water.
