We were skeptical about this property right from the moment we booked it. But we felt good by the ambiance of the reception. The room was also neat and spacious. We had got room on first floor with balcony facing the beach. The TV in the room was useless, hardly 10 channels were there. There is no wifi in room....

We checked in the hotel in d noon and there were more than 50 dishes available on the menu cart but only 1 dish was served, all other items were a straight no. The room was pathetic and it had a stinky smell. Buffet time was 7.30pm to 10pm and even if you go at 8.30 pm more than half...

It's a beautiful hotel to stay in. Very nice and spacious rooms. It's a little away from tge busy roads and the city. It gets so silent in the nights that you can hear the waves crashing on the beach. Great place to relax. Drawbacks - We had dinner and breakfast in their restaurant and it was pretty average. WiFi...

It was a nice stay at Taprospa, rates were not that high and the property is very well maintained. Staff is very welcoming :-). The amenities are also good, especially the swimming pool is very clean an tidy.

Taprospa Footprints is a property located on the Bentota Beach. The rooms are cosy. Also the corridors or even the reception area is not properly lighted. I don't know the reason behind it. It has a swimming pool and garden sort of area. Veg. Food in the restaurant was OK. One may not feel to repeat his stay in this...

I stayed in this hotel Oct 2015 as a solo traveller and was the only guest in the hotel. I was put in the middle of a long dark corridor of rooms and the lock to my door meant it didn't lock from the inside (it did but required a wiggle before lock worked) the hotel seems ok but I...
