Spent 5 nights at Bentota to chill after 3 weeks in Sri Lanka with family. The place is basic but clean and tidy. The breakfast could do with being a buffet as the choice was very limited. The wifi worked ok but did often drop out. The rooms were a good size but showed their age and as has been... More

The experience was very much contrary to what was expected and portrayed. First of all the place and rooms were a let down. One of our rooms had a weird smell throughout and the washrooms were bad. The rooms dont even have water and late at nights there is no room service or waiters. Even during the day when u... More

We are spending 5 days at Panchivilla. The rooms are large with big windows onto a balcony overlooking the pool and garden. The restaurant is always open and although no kettle in the room tea and coffee is always available and brought to your room. The staff are lovely and will arrange local sight seeing visits for you. The waterfalls... More

Had visited this in April 2015. The hotel is situated a little away from the main city (alathugama). The room had basic facilities but i guess for the price we paid I was expecting it to be more. There was no complimentary water was provided in the room. The food was ok but the prices seemed to be a little... More

We spent last 3 days of our stay in Srilanka( a 10 day tour). Stayed in 3 different hotels but everywhere we went there was no one like Panchi Villa. Away from the hustle bustle of BENTOTA town and hardly 2 mins walk to a beautiful and absolutely clean beach, this place is a must stay for those who are... More

After back packing about with children in tow we were relived to spend 4 nights at Panchi villa at the end of our trip. Good clean rooms, great pool and good big breakfast included. Close to the beach. The beach is very quiet so a lovely place to relax before heading home. We were very happy!

On our recent trip to sri lanka we stayed at Panchi Villas for a couple of days. Reception staff are very polite and helpful. Further the beach is just about two mins walk from the property. These guys also have a private beach, which would be a ten min walk or could be reached by tuk tuk (they charge USD... More

Just returned from one of our best holidays ever at Panchi villa. Located within walking distance of a magnificent sandy tropical beach. Tuk tuk travel is so cheap and easy. Wunderbar is the sister hotel and we used their sun beds and umbrellas. Staff couldn't do enough to make our stay amazing. Thanks so much to Ramie and Janeka for... More

rooms are very big and so are the bathrooms. Neat and clean rooms. Reception staff very helpful and kind. Bentota beach is about 4-5 Kms away though which can be reached in tuk tuk. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel as we had an early morning flight but they told us if we had informed them earlier they could... More
