It would have been very good place but there was a group of students consisting 70 boys and girls which made it look very crowded. They were walking here and there. The break fast was good though we didn't take other than break fast inside as it was expensive.

Club Bentota is in a lovely location, its really exciting to get a small boat to the hotel. Once at the hotel the rooms a fairly basic, the food for buffet was not very exciting and little entertainment for a hotel that is fairly isolated. However the beach and the surroundings are lovely..if you go take some entertainment with you.... More

This resort was opened way back in 1983, since then it has not undergone any upgrades. The rooms are the worst impacted by the lack of upgrades... The floors are murky, rust marks dripping on walls. The hotel has lost its appeal even though its a great location. Its pretty haunted as there is not much guest in the resort.... More

Different experience to enter the hotel (by a shuttle service boat). Old fashion room with calm surrounding. Unable to change the room temperature due to leakages. Uncomfortable furniture and lack of space in both room & bath room.

Stayed here with my family. We booked a couple of rooms. The check-in was smooth. The resort is in an island. So, we were transported in a boat upon arrival. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The bathrooms though could have been constructed / designed in a much much better manner. We stayed for 1 night. So, not a big... More

Even though this is a 3 star hotel, own water sports they have in the lagoon and the boat ride is unmatched to any other beach hotel in Sri Lanka. Rooms are average without any complaints and same goes to the food. I think it's high time for the hotel to go for a very modern renovation which will definitely... More

We have been to this hotel six times its a three star hotel and that's exactly what you get. It's clean and a little bit tired but the position of the hotel is outstanding, with a beach that is amazing with very few people on it.
