We've been here just one night, but it was enough to realize that Bentota is an incredible place, with an incredible beach. This hotel is very clean and warm, with welcoming staff, amazing rooms and the biggest bed we have found in this country. You have a very pretty five-minutes-walking to the beach and, of course, you HAVE TO visit... More

We stayed here for two nights. The room was clean and simple. The cook was very kind, helpful and she served an amazing food. What we really liked about this place was a beautiful and almost empty beach. They also provided a free sunbeds and umbrella. The sea was without any rocks and dirt but unfortunately the water wasn't really... More

Spent two nights in this place, the staff was friendly and rooms OK. Unfortunately, no mosquito nets in windows, lot of insect in the area, fan that runs only on one speed, cockroach in bathroom and wifi only in on part of the hotel. On the other side, the wonderful beach is quite near and the hotel provides free sunbeds.

Despite being a small property with very basic rooms, Palm Beach Inn lacks nowhere in quality or facilities.. It's right on Galle road so you can get off right in front of the hotel on the main Colombo-Galle/Matara route.. Very friendly and courteous staff, has direct access to the beach and has a lovely garden.. It appeared to be very... More

We booked 2 rooms for 2 nights in 2 bungalows. This inn offers basic amenities:A/C, king sized bed, hot water and towels. Perhaps it would be better if blankets and toiletries were provided. Also, the bathing area was very tiny and the water pressure was not stable. Once, water stopped flowing while my husband was showering and he had to... More
