This was our family's second stay at the Palms; we returned this year because we felt it was a good value for the area based upon our experiences last year. We could not have been more wrong. First of all, there were a number of drinking-related incidences perpetrated by other (intoxicated) guests at the hotel, that were not managed / mitigated by the hotel staff. I will not go into details, but I am not faint-hearted, but I was absolutely disgusted by the vulgarity of the goings-on. Secondly, my husband and I were the victims of a scam whereby food and beverage charges paid in cash were double-billed against our room. It seems that the wait staff are pocketing the cash - management did nothing to resolve the situation. Personally, at a beach resort, I prefer not to have to collect receipts (never mind keep them intact and dry). However, if you stay at the Palms, you either have to charge everything to your room (and double-check with other members of your party, so that they're not being charged for the same services, as you have) or collect all of your receipts, and be prepared to give yourself plenty of time at check-out to audit your bill. Ours was only one experience, so a single data point. My advice is to look elsewhere - there are plenty of options in the Bentota area, and if you elect to stay at the Palms, buyer beware to avoid falling victim to a scam. I would seriously advise anyone with children to avoid this facility as it is inappropriate for minors due to the behavior of main clientele of this resort.

My Wife and I spent 2 nights 3 days last weekend (11~13th October 13'). It was a total relax holiday. Hotel was very accomodative and obliged our early check-in request. Not only that we were upgraded to a suit as we came to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. Room was specious and the bathroom was very clean. The white sandy beach was the main attraction at this location where spent all 3 morning. the beach is very clean and can walk about 1km or so which we walked every morning and evening. The Hotel staff was very helpful. Mr. Ranjith from the restuarnt was very kind. he always came and spoke to us at meal times and offered his assistance. Only drawback we could mention is that the food choice was average. yet still it was tasety. All in all we both enjoyed our stay very much.

Room Tip: get a room overlooking the pool and sea

We stayed at Avani for 4 days in August. We were weary before going as the weather was showing up as hot (30 degrees) but thunder. Our worries were gone the first day we sunbathed as the weather was amazing! When we arrived at the hotel the process of getting our room sorted was very quick and easy, the reception explained everything we needed to know. After this we went up to the gorgeous rooms! They live up to expectations and are very modern, comfortable and sophisticated,
They cater for every palette with western foods, Sri Lankan foods and beautiful desserts! The fresh pasta and sauces were my favourite but there is so much to try! The breakfast is also so tasty with bread selections, omelettes, pancakes, waffles and eggs! If you want a less formal lunch you can order pizza, pasta, burgers and sandwiches from the bar for an easier option. We tried both and each tasted as good as the other! The pool is great and spacious and the towel man is very helpful and caters to your needs
I can safely say this is the best holiday I have been on and the best hotel I have stayed at. Thank you Palms,,,!!! ( Our Family 2nd Visit To The Palms )

We stayed here for one night and loved the hospitality of the hotel...The room overlooked the beach and pool with a small balcony...The decor of the room was amazing..The dinner and the breakfast spread was really amazing and lavish...In the evening there was a Fire & limbo show in the lobby which kept all the visitors glued and was very entertaining...
