My wife and I stayed at Club Bentota for three weeks froms the 9th June and from the moment we arrived we knew this place was special. The transfer to the airport takes around 3 hours if you use the new expressway which the driver may ask you to pay. £1.50 if a small price to pay for cutting an... More

Described as a 3 1/2 star by Kuoni is probably a little optimistic but only by half a star. Great location bang on the beach (beautiful beach as well!!). Reception and trip out on the boat very nice. Rooms were not massive (family of 3 sharing) and also the aircon was a bit tired and made the room feel and... More

This is a 3 star hotel certainly no more. It's location is fantastic between the beach and the river. We had a deluxe 1st floor room which to be honest was no better than many standard rooms we have stayed in. The room was clean, the bed large and comfy and overall acceptable. The air con was excellent and permanently... More

On our arrival, the receptionist sent porters to take our luggage to our rooms-5 adults in 2 adjoining rooms. There were at least 4 porters-who all expected a tip!! Our room had ants and the room next door had... More

Club Bentota is really good. Yes it is 30 years old and not five star but it is rustic, charming and what you would expect perched between many trees plus the river on one side and the beach on the other. The resort was only half full at best and the sea was not swimmable due to mighty incoming waves.... More

The hotel was quite in a good location but in need of a make over. On the second day we went to the beach and met Anura. Anura sells trips from his beach 'office!. He is licenced and couldn't have done more for us, his knowledge of the local area and Sri Lanka is extensive. One of our trips was... More
