We have just returned from a weeks holiday at Bentota Beach.
On arrival we were show to our room (507) which was large, bright, clean and comfortable the only downside was that the bed was two singles pushed together to make a double. To be honest the room was a lot better than we expected considering that it is a 3rd world country and the age of the hotel.
We didn’t eat in the hotel restaurant but instead tried a number of restaurants just outside of the hotel the one that I would recommend over and above the others is the Golden Grill (come out of the hotel gates and turn right and its a 5 min walk).
The hotel is situated just on the outskirts of the local village (couple of mins walk over the bridge), where you can find a supermarket, wine shop etc
Whilst there we booked a 2 day trip to Kandy via our holiday rep. I would recommend going to Kandy however this can be done in a day (albeit a long day) I would certainly recommend going to the elephant orphanage, the Temple and Tea Plantation.
On our final day we went on the train to Galle. The train costs approx 60p per person each way and takes approximately an hour and 15 mins to get there. Whilst at the station we met a gentleman who worked as a Tourist Guide Lecturer and he provided us with a list of places to visit whilst in Galle. Which included a turtle hatchery, tea plantation, men fishing on sticks etc
If you need any more info on Galle I suggest you contact T K Ranjith on +94 773 177100 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org he can arrange tours, hotels, taxis, diving, entrance fees, weddings etc.
All in all a very enjoyable stay
