Stayed here in July 2011, was pretty disappointed with the quality of the hotel grounds and rooms. The lobby looks great and so does the restaurant but that's all. We stayed in a delux room, and it was pretty basic room. The room is not very inviting, its old and the furniture is old too. The bathroom was the worst (looks more like a 3 star bathroom). IT was dirty, had mold/grime between the tiles and the metal bin was rusty.
One other major bad point is the swimming pool area. The grounds around the pool are un-kept. Weeds are long grass growing near pool and mud everywhere on the ground. Swimming pool area needs URGENT renovation. Please make it look nice and inviting, instead of weeds, uncut grass and mud everywhere.
On the plus side, there are a lot of activities to do at the hotel, such as water sports, great access to beach, spa and other things. The staff was very friendly as well. We asked for a DVD player to be brought up to our room and it was provided very quickly.
If the rooms in the hotel, swimming pool and grounds were renovated to be modern it would be pretty good place.
We stayed in heritence ahungalle the night before and it was so much better and cheaper too! We will go back to heritence ahungalle over bentota beach hotel any day.
