We booked this holiday for a last glimpse of the sun before the onset of a gloomy British winter, yes we had read some of the reviews and ok not all were great, I only talk from personal experience. On arrival we found the reception staff friendly and helpful, the location is a knockout, the short river crossing to the... More

If u are looking for a break from the hustle bustle of city life - this is the place. Great location and good amenities. Beach is clean and pristine. Rooms are comfortable. Best part of the hotel is the poolside bar. Food is little disappointing but can excuse. No wi fi facility in rooms - that is major drawback. But... More

We read the reviews on this site before we left and arrived with some trepidation. However, we had a great time! The hotel was undergoing some refurbishment, which it probably needed, but it was unobtrusive. Its all about the location which is stunning ! The rooms are okay, the food is good without being great, although there is plenty of... More

The hotel is located on an excellent site and the staff (all) are very good, efficient, friendly and accommodating. The bed rooms and certain areas are dated and need urgent upgrading otherwise i can see the ratings falling. We went all inclusive and the food served is good, plenty, of different variety and the menu changes each day. Unfortunately the... More

Recently had a twin break at Club Bentota, we initially were very wary of our plan to stay there for seven nights due to the awful reviews expressed by many different nationalities, whereas in fact we had a truly special and fantastic time. The staff were said to be rude but this is untrue, they were very welcoming, helpful, smiley,... More

We loved the island setting and access to river and beach is just perfect. However, the dinner buffet is expensive and we were charged for more drinks than we had ordered. I'm not sure if it was just one bad apple or the general culture at this resort since we were there for just one night.

For us this hotel did not live up the standard we expected. The all hotel is very dated and grubby, bags of rubbish were often left out all day. We found the reception staff to unhelpful and times rude - they were talking on the phone the all time we were checking in and barely spoke to us. 3 staff... More

we stayed at the Club Bentota from the 17th August 2014 for 2 weeks, and was a holiday to remember . We first visited Sri Lanka 10 years ago on our honeymoon and decided that we would revisit for our anniversary . Have to say after reading some of the reviews on here we did start to wonder if we...
