Good Location. Nice beach. Old Hotel. Bad Rooms. Rooms needs to be urgently refurbished. The rooms are nowhere close to the general room standards (Standard rooms are the worst). Everything about it is old (TV, Towels, Bathrobe, even the key tag etc). Bad bathroom (I do not want to talk about it). Nice beach. Good food (But fruits and crabs... More

Bentota Beach Hotel is one of the best places to stay in Bentota. Very picturesque with river on one side and the sea on the other. The aroma of cinnamon when you enter their lobby is very relaxing and uplifts your spirits. People are naturally very warm and hospitable. Rooms were neat and cozy with a beautiful view. Enjoyed a...

First stay at Bentota Beach Hotel and all in all a relaxing experience. Staff are helpful and nothing is too much trouble from Prem on reception when we arrived to the cleaning staff. The life guards at the pool were particularly helpful and very friendly. The grounds are well kept. The only downside was the restaurant which was set out... More

This was my first stay in the Bentota Beach hotel and it was a experience I would never forget and left me wanting to return to the hotel. The staff, service, food and beverage and the beach were exceptional. The only negative is the hotel is a bit tired and is in need of a face lift. If it is... More

Lunch buffet was excellent. Lots of variety and tasted so fresh. Everywhere you turn, there is always somebody to assist you without you asking for it. Great spot if you are getting here by public transport. Minus - Evening tea might do with more variety of snacks/cake... Pool closes at 6 and its not very convenient. Bar prices are little... More

We stayed in Sri Lanka for over 2 weeks, and certainly this hotel was not very good. We were given a "basement" room next the car park. Checked in at around 2PM. The check-in staff were quite rude and very unprofessional. The wifi codes are given and they expire during your stay. The hotel does that so you have to... More
