I stayed at Bentota Beach Hotel for two days with some colleagues. We were a group of 10 with both Norwegians, Sri Lankans and Indians. The hotel is situated nicely by the beach and it also has a great swimming pool. We also enjoyed water sports and a river boat trip which was excellent.
The food here is ok, but when a focaccia is a pizza pre-slized in four (looking like the pizza of one of the others) then it's better to cut down the menu. Also during dinner the waiters were a bit unattentive or over attentive. We had a table for ten, but one place was missing glasses, and we had to grab some ourselves from the table beside.
It's also nice to ask if you want more food on your place or more wine in the glass, and not just start filling it all up. Seemed like they wanted us out of the room so they could clean up for the day. And don't order the tiramisu. They served up some white pudding with cocoa powder. I prefer a menu to be correct. The bar is also not that great with way too loud music, so it's better to sit outdoors.
All in all I give 4/5 due to the hotel itself and the superb location.
