Great hotel, with delicious food, helpful staff and a lovely setting. We stayed for 3 nights and from arriving at the hotel (after travelling for over 15 hours) to checkout we were truly looked after every minute of our stay.
We loved the proximity to the beach, and the quirkiness of the railway line - drinking wine in the summer house as the sunset and a train rumbled past reminded you where you were.
We ate at the hotel restaurant 2 nights and Malli's 1 night, all three meals were excellent and a special shout out to Malli who went out of his way to ensure we had one of the best nights of our holiday.
Breakfast at the hotel was delicious and we managed to bag the outdoor tables, definitely worth asking for one of these for dinner, we did for our last night and it was great to feel like you were the only people being tended to, with the sounds of waves crashing in the background.
We had drinks in some of the bigger resort hotels and from what we saw they weren't a patch on Paradise Road. If considering Bentota, I'd definitely opt for The Villa Paradise Road - one of the best hotels of our stay.
