This Hotel is located on the beautiful coast of Bentota, South Sri Lanka and is right on the beach. The Hotel has been refurbished and the rooms are nice, spacious, clean and with a breath taking view of the sea.
If you are looking for a quiet holiday of laying in the sun, reading a book and taking the odd dip in the sea or pool then this is the place to go as it offers little else. If you want to surf there is a surf Board rental place 50 meters down the beach with a great team of local guys who work there and teach. For more active water sports then a brief TukTuk ride away (100 rupees) there is "Tushal" - Sun shine sports center where you can water ski, Windsurf, jet ski etc all on the River. Bentota has plenty of restaurants for eating out and it is nice to try different ones. The dinner in the Hotel is not terrific which is unfortunate so I would recomment B&B rather than H/B and eat out in the evenings. Major pain is that the Hotel also has no WiFi. Only internet connections is 2 lines in the bar area and people sitting around waiting for one to come free. If you need to work whilst on holiday, this is not the place.
Staff are friendly and all in all i think you get what you pay for and i would stay here again, mainly because of the location and the rooms. You need plenty of mosquito protection in the evenings, maybe because of the river but all in all, fair value for money.
