Good location, bad food

Location, room size, accessibility
Ok. More of a three star hotel. Service is unattentive, bathroom amenities incomplete, wifi is not working in the room. Food was a great disappointment - made for traveling masses on a low budget, not for customers who should come back.

Assaulted by the F&B Manager over Water; Danger
I WAS PHYSICALLY ASSAULTED BY THE F&B MANAGER AT THIS HOTEL FOR CARRYING A BOTTLE OF WATER FROM BREAKFAST!! THIS IS A DANGEROUS HOTEL WITH SERIOUS EMPLOYEE ISSUES AND SHOULD BE BANNED FROM AGODA!! I received my money back for a 2-night stay at this hotel in August after I had to repeatedly complain to Agoda about checking out early b/c of a physical altercation with the F&B Manager on August 8/8. He grabbed my hand, which was carrying a bottle of water that he thought I had refilled in the restaraunt but did not. WATER!! My husband had to grab his shirt from touching me -- in front of Arab families no less -- and scream at him that he cannot touch ANY woman in this hotel that way! Then he threatened to call the police -- ON PAYING CUSTOMERS!! Needless to say, we screamed at the manager -- who assured us that this was unprecedented and that we would get our money back from the hotel for leaving early. Of course, he did not do so, and then denied any altercation at the hotel, or allowing us to view the security cameras. When Agoda asked him what happened, he denied everything. THIS IS THE WORST EXPERIENCE -- AND A PHYSICAL DANGEROUS ONE AT THAT -- I'VE EVER HAD AT A HOTEL, ESPECIALLY AS A FEMALE TRAVELLER IN SOUTH/EAST ASIA. I DON'T WANT EMPLOYEES MANHANDLING ME WHEN I AM PAYING PREMIUM PRICES TO BE AT THEIR HOTEL. In Sum, if you go to this hotel, you risk being physically assaulted by their employees as a result of the lax culture that the General Manager has extolled onto them. THIS HOTEL CREEPS ME OUT.

Decent hotel and value for money

Pool and view
Decent hotel with large rooms, however, it's old and required re-innovation also a lot of intersects at the ground floor halls. About 20-30 min away from Colombo depends on traffic. Staff are friendly and helpful. Overall, we had enjoyed and kids like it.

Couple stay for 5 nights

Friendly and helpful staff. Awesome breakfast. great rooms and family atmosphere without all the crowds given the private beach for the hotel.
It was good in all aspects espl the friendly and eversmiling staff. For vegetarian non egg consuming Indians like us the mostly continental cuisine let to us having soup bread and fruits for dinner most days but this is due to the general tourist profile in Bentota. Otherwise worth the price although one could be better off booking a week before the trip to benefit from hotel discounts on the site.

Enjoyed out stay

Location (right on the beach), quality of dining was good, staff was helpful
Good stay at The Surf Hotel in Bentota. Location is right on the beach and the activity area (large green space) on the beach front was enjoyable for sporting activities. The pool attendants and outdoor activity coordinators were very good. The reception staff and a few in the restaurant (only the female attendants for some reason) could use some training and 'behavioural adjustment', but aside from that, a very enjoyable stay for our family of 5.
