we stayed in 2017 in Club The reception and employes were very friendly But as the building was very old and we had a room with a connection door to the next room we heard every word of the ppl who stayed there. I think thats why the hotel is closed now We traveled in 2017.

This hotel is best mind relaxing place I ever stayed. Located near Alutgama railway station. This hotel is so near to "Kande wiharaya " buddhist temple where large budda statue is located. This is the reason I selected this hotel. Best customer service. Hotel is located near Bentota river. Very nice background around hotel. Swimming pool also available. This place is best to spend your weekend. Rooms were with good enough space. Clean rooms. Washroom facilities were good. Foods are average. Hotel is with nice decorations. Very nice dining area. High cost foods compared to hotels in Kalutara and Alutgama city. If you visit this place dont forget to visit " Kande wiharaya " temple. This place is loated near Alutgama railway station. If you hope to travel by train this is good place to stay.

This was the first time in Sri Lanka,we stayed in Colombo in Pegasus resort for two days and moved to Club Bentota for another 3 nights,truly an awesome experience with the pristine location and the lagoon kind of feeling. Completely safe and the kids were on their own for the entire stay. Good Hospitable and friendly staff,great food and buffet ,private beach at your disposal. Very close the backwaters,turtle farm etc.

NB: THE PREVIOUS POSTER HAS NOT STAYED HERE AND POSTED THEIR REVIEW FOR THE WRONG HOTEL! This hotel CLOSED on 1st May 2017 for refurbishment (see their website for details). I stayed October last year following a previous visit in 2002 and found it to be a hugely relaxing and well run resort (again). Staff were incredibly helpful setting up a private, surprise dinner on a raft on the lagoon for my partner and the day to day buffet was exceptional. We stayed here for our last 5 days before returning home and it was the best choice ever. We look forward to the re-opening in 2019.

We've been staying here for a few days and run as quick as we found another place to stay in Bentota, but planed to stay 2 weeks. ROOM IS TERRIBLE: small and dirty. Buffet is very weak. But the worst in this hotel is a staff! ALL OF THEM are COMPLETELY STUPID! Believe me , I spend a few years in Africa, I know what kind of service can be in Mali and Guinea/Conakry , but this is something UNbelivable! Admins are cheaters, who don't care about you, they are interesting only to withdraw your cash, as much as possible. Don't ask them anything ! Ask the Guy Anil, who driving bus on a bus-taxi stop, he's reliable. Anyway most of baggage man there are more clever than this concierges and admins in Bentota Club Hotel. You can find a lot of good hotels not far from Bentota Club with the same or less rate. Please plan your trip attentively! p.s. This year 2017 , they have made a renovation and may be smth is changed(:

The hotel is a charming boat ride across the bay to access through a beautiful reception. There is heavy use of timber and wood in their decor. It carries an old world charm and beauty. They have wide access to sea and the backwater (where you can enjoy water sports). There is a pool, snooker room and badminton court available in the hotel. The tennis courts were in need of some maintenance. I quite liked the vibe of this hotel. You frequently come across fresh water monitors on the property. Ideal for organising large corporate events outdoors or beach picnics and weddings.

Went to this place in the month of January 2017. This is surely a heaven on earth. To reach the hotel we have to cross a river by their private boats. The resort is located between a river on one side and the ocean on the other. They have a direct access to the beach and you will hear the waves roaring throughout your stay. The breakfast spread is above average and vast. The live seafood counter is good. The restaurant is big and well equipped. Food is costly. The rooms are very good with verandahs that open up to the ocean. Overall a very beautiful resort. Would love to visit this place, again and again.

Had such a super 3 days at Club Bentota, you can drive directly from Colombo airport, it's about 2 hour drive roughly. No point staying at Colombo, it's crowded, expensive and a city life, there nothing there for a tourist. Club Bentota is a perfect getaway even from India. Peaceful, good food, beer, super water sports, we did each ride and thoroughly enjoyed it, very reasonably priced too. Nice romantic beach attached to the property. I've travelled to most countries, this is my favourite resort. A small tip, pre book all massages they are soooo good. Try if you can book a chalet or cottage near the Ayurvedic massage hut, I personally liked those cottages much better than the rooms but they weren't offered on booking sites, only direct. Sheer bliss this place.

We had an amazing honeymoon here. It took about 2 and a half hours from the airport, our minivan did drop other people off at other hotels on the way. When you arrive you take a small boat across to get to it which was really fun. It is an older looking hotel but in general was clean and tidy. There is a beautiful beach directly behind the hotel and we loved exploring around the island that the hotel is on. Staff were nice but not overly friendly, except the cheeky waiter who always came to talk to me everytime my husband left the table. I had sent a email to the hotel saying we were coming on a honeymoon and asking what specials did they have and I was sent back a very general email and on arrivel we had no special treatment and to my disapointment no animal towels on our bed the whole week, I gave daily tips,hoping to see some :) The rooms are very clean, the electricity did go out a few times and we had to go to reception to get someone to fix it but it was always sorted out very quickly. The food was fantastic, very spicy and very delicious. The spa treatment was lovely and I had a really nice massage. The evening entertainment was fun and not too much! I would recommend this hotel for older couples and familys who like calm hotels. German was spoke more than English as all the hotels and town in this area cater more to German speaking guests. It is a no frills hotel but we had a wonderful time, exploring the country on a rickshaw, meeting locals. I would definatly go back, even if it is just to eat the best dahl ever!
