Spacious apartment
Good value, some view of the river, very spacious
This area of Bentota is not necessarily a nice area, as in there is not much around. There are some small shops nearby and it is located above a mini mart store. There aren't a lot of restaurants around. The layout of the apartment is a bit interesting. One enters through the kitchenette then the bathroom is on the left then there is a door to the main sleeping and living area. There is therefore no air conditioning in the bathroom and kitchenette area. We paid extra for an extra cot but we found it was so soft that our son could not sleep on it. He slept on the couch instead so don't waste your money on an extra cot if your child is small enough to sleep on the sofa they have. The bedskirts and bedding have some staining and have some holes, probably due to the fact that smoking is allowed. There are no accommodations for drivers. The internet connection was very, very slow.

worst shower ever
The place was great. The attached restaurant was fantastic and the staff were amazing. Our son loved them all. The shop was convenient. But the shower, or should I say two showers were rubbish. There were two of them. One very hot and one cold. You have to move the hot one around until its under the cold one then hope they mix to get the right temperature. Very inconvenient and not good when you have a two yr old. Other than that it was ok.

good value
lots of space; good location with great river views; restaurant below was very good.
Overall, excellent value with all usual mod cons for use. Only two improvements required, a television in each apartment and the wi fi was very slow and sometimes none existent. Was recommended by theowner to use the grocery store for quicker wi fi.

Great apartments!
Very spacious, view to the river, reasonble price
Apartments are really big, have a lot of light in the room. Kitchen is equipped with everythig you need for a long stay. They have a good restaurant on a river bank with a local live music in the evening. On mondays there is a big market just near the restaurant,where you can buy fruits and vegetables. It's a great choice for a long stay in Bentota, especially if you prefer to cook by youself.

Great stay
Location, Price, Comfort
Great stay,lovely place and great deal on the apartment! Just be sure your key works to get into the apartment complex! Mine didn't (or was very tricky which I hadn't mastered) and was locked out for 30 minutes in the middle of the night and had to wait until someone in one of the other apartments let me in. Otherwise, great place!

Efficient and helpful staff, high standard of facilities, relaxed atmosphere
The pleasant spacious studio apartments with terraces overlooking the river are very comfortable. I was really impressed with the excellent standard, with all that you may need for self-catering provided, and a variety of little shops on the doorstep, while a very reasonable good food is available at the restaurant downstairs. The central location means that all the local sites and beaches are within easy reach. The staff is relaxed but efficient and helpful, all this allowing as much independence as you may want.
