We ate breakfast at the hotel and opted to try other places around town for dinner. The staff is what makes this hotel a... More

This jaded traveller has to admit that the room I had a Marina Bentota must rank right up there with the best anywhere. Once all the hygene factors are met such as clean, good bed, nice bathroom,friendly staff, good food (as they were here with - well the food was OK, not great), it comes down to location, views and...

Great dive base and water sports centre. Great dive locations. if you are less adventurous take a boat trip down the river and see village life go by. Only used the facility for the day and didnt sleep over. Word of caution: the chef works at a pace of his own a club sandwhich will take aproximatly 1 1/2 hours... More
