Hotel Marina has an advantage of location. Beach on one side and river Madu ganga on the other. Rooms are spacious and clean. I found lack of a reception desk little weird. However hotel staff were very friendly. The buffet spread for breakfast has to be improved and I found the hotel to be very expensive. We had dosa for...

All the basic amenities are available. Cleanliness: Zero marks here. The base of hot kettle in room was not cleaned in many days. There was a sticky mud at the...

Great location, adjacent to the beach. Rooms and general nature of the hotel is "tired and grubby". Facilities need upgrading. Restaurant experience - we had excellent food but were deceived by the prices of the food we ordered. Manager of the restaurant was unprofessional and rude and threatened to make the waiter pay for his mistake if we didn't pay...

at the end of our trip we were looking forward to this beach destination. when we reached to this hotel, we were taken to first floor in a bar/ restaurant. That is the reception of this hotel. It looked little awkward. But the room allotted to us was really big and very nice. Since we were three persons including our...

We stayed here for 2 nights after a lovely 12 day trip through Sri Lanka. I was really looking forward to this part of the trip as we had been pretty busy seeing all the sights and were wanting some beach relaxation. Sadly this hotel did not provide any such experience. We arrived at approximately 3:30pm and stood around for...

Bentota truly is an amazing place. having just come back from there, the experience was indeed mind blowing. We stayed at the Hotel Marina , which wins hands down simply due to its amazing location. You have the ocean to one side( barely 10 steps to the beach) and the river on the other side..... you truly are in paradise....

I visited Hotel Marina with my family in April 2016. The hotel is in an amazing location between the river and the sea. But sadly that's the only good thing I can say for this hotel. The staff was unprofessional and unhygienic and did not know what they were doing most of the time. The lunch was bland. The dinner...
