We were booked into 2 deluxe rooms ... oh my goodness, where do I start? They were dirty, smelly, broken, dark ... To be honest we were disgusted that our travel agent even booked us in here. The atmosphere of the place felt a bit antagonistic, staff weren't particularly friendly - in the restaurant they even mocked my little boy... More

The location is absolutely stunning - you have to cross a lake to get to the hotel which is situated in an island/peninsula. The drive from Colombo is not too far away and took only about 45 mins. Everything is great about this place but it could do so much better in terms of service, especially. The exterior of the... More

We stayed at club Bentota in June for two weeks and I have to say the hotel is truly magical. The location is fantastic, it gives you the impression that you are staying on an island. The rooms are a little dated but that didn't bother us at all. The staff are wonderful nothing is too much trouble for them..... More

We stayed at Club Bentota on 21st & 22nd July 2014. The location of the Hotel is amazing, you have to take a boat ride to access the Hotel from the mainland. The boats are provided by the Hotel. The resort is located on an island with river on one side & Indian Ocean on the other. The rooms are... More
