Good Western / Sri Lankan food, personalised service. Located between the river and the sea, on a narrow strip of land. Salt sea beach on one side, Sweet water with wildlife, mangroves and water sports on the other ! A lifetime's experience.

We stayed in Marina Bentota (superior room) for 2 nights. The best thing about this hotel is its close proximity to the beach that is stretching kilometers in both directions. It is sandy, gently sloping into the sea, and wide. You step out of your room, cross the small yard and sandy path and you are there. Despite the presence... More

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

In case u spend most of your time on the beach and need a room for sleep and wash then this is also a good option, just that there are better... 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
