We stayed here for 2 nights. Loved it, already planning our return!! It was an excellent experience! The food was wonderful, and we particularly valued the availability of delicious Sri Lankan food among a wide array of international cuisines at the buffets. Our room had a sea view and a spacious balcony overlooking the sea. We were just steps from the beach, and the warm waters of the Indian Ocean were irresistible. The staff is very attentive and we were taken very good care of.

Very beautiful and clean beach with a very long stretch. It is less crowded and you can expect very big hotel chains there. It's beautiful and so peaceful.

We had romantic experience in Bentota Beach in Sri Lanka. I went to the place with my mother, wife and elder son. The beach was romantic. There was lovely evening breeze. Everyone in my family enjoyed the stay in the beach.

We gave a best beach experience between the river and the ocean, no local people, no crowd, just the best ocean, with great sand and waves

The season is usually around November and goes on through March. During this time it is a spectacular time to enjoy this amazing place.

This beach is stunning and spotlessly clean with very few people although sunbeds and refreshments are available here and there

Not your stereotypical white sands and azure waters but very beautiful all the same and in the mornings almost deserted. I t does get a little busier and at sunset a lot of local families come to the beach for the last of the sun. What made it for me however was the waves, which I know are not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s not swimming in the sea without waves and these were just right. The only thing the beach is really lacking is some nice bars but otherwise perfect and it goes on for miles

I'm not a huge fan of swimming in large bodies of water because I live in Egypt & the Mediterranean is really cold with rough waves. at least in my experience.
I was especially worried because I was gonna swim in an ocean instead of a sea, something I hadn't done before.
but I was pleasantly surprised. the ocean was warm & the current was weak. the ground also isn't very steep, we had to walk a good while before the water reached our necks.
the beach itself was very nice. the seating & service were alright but we spent most of our time in the water.
either way, it was really nice & I recommend it.

The beach is beautiful. A good place to go for walks. The sea was very rough and strong waves not safe at all to get into the sea during this time.
