Great location and staff but hotel looked dated and old
I was slightly disappointed as the property was not like other TAj properties I have stayed in. It wasn't as luxurious. The food variety and quality was just ok, nothing great. For the price, it did not seem worth it. However the staff were fantastic, I was offered a complimentary room grade and they were very helpful. They made the stay worthwhile.

Awful Experience in Taj Bentota
Had planned a break for 2 days to Bentota, had visited it about 15 years back when it was Taj Exotica so was looking to make kids experience a beautiful beach resort. Guess with them changing it to Vivanta the services have also gone down. The day we landed i decided to go to the spa for a massage. The lady guided me to the womens changing room and told me that i can shower before my massage. As i was changing to my horror a man walked in with the towels. I told the spa manager and expected the hotel manager to get back with me about it but there was no response. We cut our trip to one day and decided to eat in the hotel. That night my daughter got acute food poisoning and had a terrible night . when we were leaving i informed the duty manager and told them that we were going to be moving to Taj Samudra and i would def like to speak to them about this terrible experience. Sadly , the Manager did not bother to even get in touch with me. Its shameful how the standard has fallen. This is def the last time we are visiting Sri Lanka .
