We arrived with some trepidation having read the negative comments submitted previously. We found such comments to be totally unwarranted, -people must accept that this is a third world country, where due to the grinding poverty people are desperate for tips & hand outs from guests. Yes there is a dampness about the rooms but we were at the end... More

The hotel is nice but the rooms were a bit damp. We stayed all inclusive and although the spread was very good, the only problem was being vegetarian. There were lots of choices for non-vegetarians. We had to speak to the head chef in the end and even then the vegetarian was limited. Some parts of the hotel need refreshing... More

Nice and a secluded place for a relaxing holiday. The boat ride to the hotel adds more fun to the place. The food is extremely nice and the staff so friendly. I loved the secluded atmosphere of the hotel is a real plus point for a relaxing holiday. The hotel mostly had foreign visitors and less local visitors. The rooms... More

We stayed here between the 13th - 23rd Oct 2014 - friendly and helpful staff, beautiful location and good value for money. After a short boat trip across the Bentota River we arrived at the hotel and were warmly welcomed with a refreshing fruit juice. We stayed in a standard room (small bungalow) located in the gardens with sounds of... More

We arrived very early on a Sunday morning and enjoyed our boat trip to Club Bentota as the temple played gentle music. We were allocated a room early and our children stayed in the other side of our semi-detached bungalow. The setting, grounds and beach were excellent and we had a relaxing holiday. The variety, quality and organisation of food... More

We had stayed in two other hotels in Sri Lanka before we got here, both were much cleaner and better appointed than Club Bentota and with more polite and better, more consistent service. Our room was ok, a bit dark but had none to the dampness issues discussed elsewhere on TripAdvisor. The air con worked well but was far too... More

We stayed at this hotel at the end of October. It is a 3 star hotel so our expectations were not too high,also having read some of the reports on Tripadvisor we felt we knew what to expect. What a lovely surprise, yes the porters are a pain when you arrive, but once there forget about them and enjoy your... More
