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.

Amazing Location. Value for money

Location. Efficient Staff. Value for Money
Very comfortable and enjoyable Stay. Location of the Hotel ans view from the room is amazing. Staff is very helpfùl and efficient. Ala carte menu needs a great deal of improvement as having buffet every day is not desirable

Beach was best part

Beach, driving distance to Galle, driving distance to Colombo
I expected more of The Surf. Wi-fi didn't work in room, room had ants, and they had accommodation for drivers (just not if you booked online?!). Staff was nice but were slow and didn't really understand the concept of customer service that well. Best thing was the beach, and decent driving distance to both Galle and Colombo airport.

6 nights in November

The beach, the swimming pool and the friendly staff
We had a very pleasant stay at The Surf Hotel, the place was clean and tidy with friendly staff. Terrific place for walking on beach, swimming in the pool or just totally relaxing. A very peaceful place. The only downside was it's a little bit too quite at times and would do well to have a bit more entertainment in the evening such as a good Irish bar and music. Overall I would highly recommend this place as very good value and would definitely visit again in the near future.

A Hotel with Excellent Ocean View

Almost all rooms have ocean view; Food is good; Swimming pool is good
The location of the hotel is perfect. One side is Indian Ocean, another side is railway. You can walk to railway station in 3 minutes, but don't worry, it is not noisy. However, the facilities are old inside room, so it's not very good value for price if we take it into consideration.

Best views from any hotel in Bentota

Views from hotel, quality of rooms, hotel buffet
Bentota beach is the location of a lot of luxury hotels in Sri Lanka. The beach itself is relatively quite. The Surf Hotel is unusual in the area in that it is very open at the front and all rooms have views of the sea from the balconies. Staff, food, quality of rooms are all excellent. Only thing some people might find annoying is occasional train that passes hotel which can be loud - many hotels in this area will have this to contend with as train line is very close to coast at this point - didn't bother us as air con tends to drown out the noise.
