Very disappointing stay at Dalmanuta Gardens”
We selected this hotel from reading lot of reviews. it is situated in more rustic environment with each cottage having its own front yard` garden and inside it is nice and clean, although you have to make sure that you keep door closed least all bugs and mosquito enter the cottage.The most disappointing aspect of this property was the staff and service. They had minimal staff for house keeping as well as in the restaurant. Was`also disappointed with the quality and variety of food items. The breakfast is cold and minimal. Did not feel that food hygienic standard were at par with 4 start hotel they claim. If you are looking to do nothing and just stay put in your cottage with very laid back service and so so food, then this is for you at 4 star price. Otherwise skip this place.

Very relaxing”
Quiet relaxing location set amongst beautiful gardens
I was disappointed with the hotel. It definitely did not live up to my expectations. Room and food were average. Very few staff spoke english. It was not explained to me that in order to get service I had to call a specific number so on a number of occasions after calling reception and my call not being answered I had to leave the room and walk to reception. Then the manager was not there and I have to speak with his family. It was very strange and not professional. The hotel is in a remote location. A long way from restaurants and the beach.

overall good place to stay”
good rooms, good restaurant, helpful staff, good massage and pleasant gardens.
this is a good place to relax and offers good value for money. the hotel has a boat to take you to bentota beach which is very nice. the restaurant is good and the chef anxious to accommodate any requests. the dining areas projecting onto the water are very nice. there is ayurvedic treatment on offer but we just had a few massages, which were as good as any we have had in the past. this is a good place for relaxing rather than touring around (there is not much to see in this part of sri lanka). overall this is a very nice place to stay but it is not a luxury destination although you would not expect it at the price you pay.

The perfect place to relax and recharge”
tranquil environment, beautiful setting on the river side
dalmanuta gardens is a real garden, a small jungle in bentota river. the room was actually a bungalow with a very beautiful private garden. the rooms are ok, spacious and clean. there was a nice surprise upon arrival - a flowery, welcome pattern on our bed; however the bathroom was a disappointment as although it was clean, it was dated and very basic. the staff was really lovely and helpful and the food in the hotel was great. we ate both nights there, we tried the crab, the lobster and also the local sri lankan food; all very tasty and without doubt recommended. the location of the tables for the breakfast / lunch/ dinner is wicked! we enjoyed it so much... the swimming pool is also quite nice. nicely located around palm trees, we swam under the rain and it was a nice experience. it is of course all about the expectations that someone has from holidays. for us that we needed a relaxing, peaceful holidays, away from the buzz of the city, and close to nature, it was really lovely and if we have the chance, we go back again in the future. overall, our staying there was very relaxing and pleasant, it was the perfect pl

Nice Little Resort”
beautiful grounds that are well kept, spacious rooms and very quiet.
Our family spent 7 days at the resort. August is the slow season so the resort was practically empty, which we liked. The staff was friendly and helpful. We took a couple tours offered by the resort and would have liked to hear a little more explanation on where we were but the communication was an issue. Even so, we really enjoyed the excursions. The food was okay. The breakfast selections were minimal. I would not stay at the resort based on the food alone. The place is located right along the river about a 10 minute boat ride from the ocean. The water was rough and not safe for our 5 and 7 year old to swim. This is because of the season. We still enjoyed walking along the beach and the boat was right on time to pick us up. They offer a complimentary ride to and from the beach once a day. 4 hours is a bit long to spend as there is no shade and you have to walk a bit to reach other resorts along the beach if you are looking for food or drinks. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Dalmanuta. The staff was very accommodating. The rooms were clean and spacious. The beds were okay but the pillows were very uncomfortable. The resort should consider investing in new ones. The highlight for my young boys was the fireflies at our bungalow in the evenings!!

ambience, quality of accommodation
This was our most impressive accommodation in Sri Lanka. The cottages are beautifully equipped and furnished to a standard that would put "boutique" hotels to shame. The ambience and sense of seclusion is superb and the staff very laid back ( too laid back if you are in a hurry for service! )
