Pros - Great location and wonderful staff. Sunset views are uninterrupted and the beach is very clean. Cons - food often cold as it is all cooked in the main kitchen and walked over to the other 2 restaurants. Rooms are quite expensive

With a private beach and the location is perfect for relaxing and chilling. The staff is a little lost and cleanliness can be better. However the beautiful beach and the location makes up for what it lacks.

            better and bigger then showing on agoda website”
            we really enjoyed our stay much in the surf bentota. hotel more big and more beautiful then showing agoda or other websites. hotel did not provide good pictures to booking websites. from our room we can directly jump in swimming pool or its only 10-15 meter away from nice sandy beach. Break fast good buffet break fast also ok little bit complain with reception staff. let them send towel for 3rd guest, they only said yes yes , but did not bring. for our luggage, we had to remind 2 times and i took 20-30 minutes to get our luggage from first request. they might do not care or do not remember request. welcome drink was good. they gave us room earlier then check in time. our fridge was locked and they let me call room service to open i asked food menu from room serive , they bring and let us order same time , as they can not leave menu. very strange, i got angry and did not order anything beach restaurant is good, but they might do not know how to run resturant or how to get customers. a

            Great Hotel on the beach”
            this hotel was quite good. it has a large beachfront where its calm enough to swim leisurely. the hotels pool has a great view. if you get the pool/sea view rooms, the sitting area outside your room is fantastic to relax and take in the view. hotel rooms were clean and comfy, breakfast was decent. theres a karaoke room upstairs which we enjoyed after having a few drinks! location is good, only 5 mins tuk tuk ride to the market and the river for all the watersports and restaurants.

            This hotel was good value for money and the staff were very nice. The breakfast had a very good range of choice. The beachfront location was lovely and easily accessible. However I would advise that there are many squirrels and crows around the compound which can be very annoying during breakfast and when you are trying to sunbath. On our final morning we were woken up to the sounds of squirrels in our closet which was quite un-nerving. Staff were very attentive and responded to us quickly.

            It is a perfectly located property that been well maintained in The Surf but Ekho Surf side needs refurbishing. Excellent massage therapist Manager was very helpful and had us moved to another room Suggestions:: 1)Need to upgrade menu , food options are very limited , should include separate breakfast options like other hotels for those not on an included breakfast package eg: American, English and Asian breakfast . 2)train staff to be prompt, we had to change rooms from top floor to ground floor as it took them more than 45 minutes in off season to send water ,towel,our luggage, a menu etc 3) Get rid off old lumpy woollen blankets in Ekho Surf and provide same standard of hypo allergenic comforters in all rooms

            Really enjoyed our stay at the surf. We originally booked the superior room but it was a bit old and bad paint. I noticed they were renovating the second wing of superior rooms so this may be fixed soon. We talked with manager and we're able to upgrade to a deluxe room on ground floor. Our doors opened up to a balcony with deck chairs and right next to pool. I would highly recommend this room it was very nice. Breakfast was huge buffet with eggs, bacon, curry, cereal, deserts and anything else you could think of. Very good and enough to keep us going till dinner time. All in all hughly recommend

            The hotel couldn't be faulted on location. It was almost comical trying to get a drink from the Der Cafe, we tried to bribe them with tips but even that didn't work, we had to walk into the bar every time we'd wanted a drink. Nor sure what's going on there, but it didn't spoil our stay. Also there are a couple of good restaurants right opposite the hotel front gate.

Food is quite good. Try the seafood at one of their restaurant. Breakfast is elaborate and good. Overall recommended

Until we insisted on brewed coffee we kept being served instant To make up for this they offered lovely black current juice at the breakfast buffet. The rooms are lovely, well appointed, comfy beds etc. The balcony is outstanding with great quality loungers. The dinner menu is very limited but overall I would gladly return. Rates are very attractive during this off season. Wifi difficult to access in the rooms.

            The Surf is to old to charge such a high price per room. We booked a superior room and the first one they shown up was dirty, old and not maintained. The AC is nearly 20years old and looked dirty and disgusting. Way too loud. The clanining could be better. The staff tried to be freindly but didn't help with tours ( said we should go to one of the tuktuk driver). Even the staff tried to sell you dinner offer during the breakfast (which 5 star hotel is acting like that?). Can't recommend for such a high price.

            OK package-holiday style hotel ”
            This hotel is nice enough, but I wasn't super fond of our the way the rooms were laid out, as they're all lined up in one long row facing the lawn and beach and they get blasted with sun from about noon onwards. We were placed in a ground-floor room right beside the restaurant, so every time we opened the curtains or door, people were walking past literally inches from us and could look right into the room. It also really has a package holiday vibe with buffet meals, lots of couples and families, and packed out sun loungers. Not really our style, but that being said, the pools were decent and the location right on the beach is nice.

            This hotel has a great location and 2 good pools but not a lot else to offer. Hotel is tired and needs a lot of money spending on it. Arrived at 1345 to be told room was not ready - 15 minutes later we were told it was ready but it was half done, not clean, safe not working, missing towels, etc. Basics not there - ironing board, clock, glasses to drink out of, towels, etc. Complaining to a female member of staff on reception resulted in a slow improvement - same employee was consistently rude, obstructive and told us lies throughout our stay. She must have failed the customer service course! Rest of staff were very average throughout our stay - consistently unhelpful. We will go to Bentota again but will not stay at this resort again.
