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

We spent a week here at Club Bentota in May. I'm not sure if it was the time of year but it was lovely and quiet. The rooms are lovely with air conditioning which is needed! This is by no means a five star hotel so as long as you don't go with those expectations you will think it's lovely.... More

Having used Kuoni previously we were very let down with this hotel. Many reviews have said that the cost of the holiday was cheap but ours certainly wasn't and the hotel did not live up to our expectations. The worst aspect of our stay was the room, we booked a deluxe room and what we got certainty was not deluxe.... More

We went there on holiday over Christmas - have been too busy to write our review earlier -. We booked with Kuoni and started the holiday with a tour of Sri Lanka so have some comparisons for the quality of the hotel and food. Bottom line we had a fantastic holiday making great new friends and will definitely return to... More

This hotel was chosen by us based on its cost, location, all inclusive package and reviewer comments. We have stayed in some very nice hotels across the world and this one exceeded our expectations for a 3* property. We paid for a relatively inexpensive stay and got great value for money. The all inclusive is really full Board with unlimited... More

I had read all the reviews for 6 months before we went and had got so excited about going to Club Bentota, I was worried I was going to be disappointed on arrival. However, I have to say my expectations were exceeded. We reached the hotel within 3 hours of landing. Arrival by boat is very impressive. We were warmly... More
