Reviewed September 4, 2013

good location with unique designed by bawa. there are many famouse restaurants around it and very easy to other viewpoints. very tasty and various selection breakfast. also the staff i met very friendly and helpful. night time, better not walk on the beach, it is very dard and few locals outside of resort beach.

Room Tip: ocean view room at the corner, a little bit far to the lobby but it is quiet and beautiful view

The Bentota Beach Hotel at Galle Road, Bentota, Sri Lanka, is a lovely place to stay. It's a great location to relax and is right on the beach. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The staff was all friendly and nice and helped us out with whatever we needed.

It is a nice hotel with beautiful garden. The direct access to ocean, with fairly large beach, the only problem was lack of beach beds. The hotel facilities nice. We stayed in renovated part of the hotel, room was very clean and spacious.

Although the meals were extremely good and the actual layout of the room good my main disappointment was the actual layout and architecture of the hotel which is quite impracticable. It is disgraceful that a quite modern building does not consider people who have poor mobility or may be handicapped. The architect was the late Geoffrey Bawa, an apparently acclained Sri Lankan and obviously eccentric. [We were told that is known as 'the prison' because of the exterior and entrance!] There were many steps to get to reception and to get 'up' to my room I had to go downstairs, through corridors then up stairs again. The air conditioning in the room was hopeless and nobody came to inspect it.
The hotel was clean and the beautiful gardens were well maintained.

This was our last hotel and one of the best. Our aircon was broken and we were given an upgrade when we mentioned this. The staff are all very helpful and go out of their way to give good service. For example, the pool attendant reserved our sunbeds each day and made sure we had clean, dry towels at all times. Food is good from the buffet. We went on the pontoon dinner night as it sounded fun but this was a bit disappointing as the pontoon went only a short distance and sat for an hour with nasty diesel fumes polluting us! However, we were generally very happy with this hotel.

I spent three nights here as part of my honeymoon stay. The hotel is surrounded by the sea and the river from two sides and the rail way is running along the other side. This has great locations for photography (specially for wedding photography).The place is very clean and have spacious rooms. The buffet is also very good every day got some nice distinct food items.The staff is very friendly. We had a boat ride in Bentota river and it was a great experience. Its a great place to stay.

After a week tour of Sri Lanka this hotel was just what was needed - peaceful & relaxing. Great, helpful staff, beautiful surroundings & excellent food with a wide variety of dishes. Room was on ground floor, clean & spacious with access to the beautiful gardens. Definitely go again.

Room Tip: Rooms on ground floor seem to be quitter away from main pool & gardens overlooking Bentota River
