AVANI Bentota Resort & Spa

5-star grounds; 3-star rooms

Like the title says, it’s a 5-star property. The hotel grounds are amazing with direct access to the beach. The buffet breakfast is large and varied with an omelette, pancake, and waffle station. The staff are friendly and helpful. I’m afraid that’s where the 5-star rating ends. The quality of the rooms are definitely 3-star. The locking mechanism on the room doors make it so you have to pull the door in hard to ensure it’s closed. This means you hear lots of slamming throughout the day. In the bathroom you have old frayed towels and mold in the shower grout. The beds are moderately comfortable. The air-con in my room was only warm to cool. The thermostat never got below 23 although I turned it to 20. There’s an empty fridge in the room; no minibar. I spent two nights at the hotel and ate at Charters bar the first evening. The food was completely tasteless. Afterwards, I had lunch and dinner outside of the hotel. Try Rana seafood or Wunder bar I would not recommend this hotel. There are many other accommodations on the beach for half the price.

The Surf Hotel

Large Hotel By The Beach

Large Hotel With Large Pools I stayed at The Surf Hotel, Bentota for 2 nights. The hotel boasts a prime location on Bentota Beach. It covers a large area of land and it has two nice swimming pools, one of which is 52 meters long. They are both clean and well maintained. The rooms are large enough and have a balcony that overlooks the beach. However, they are infested by ants and other insects. We had to call the reception on two occasions to spray insect repellent. I had to use my personal mobile on both occasions as the room telephone was out of order. Moreover, the furniture needs renovation. The staff were very prompt and helpful and deserve a thumb up for their promptness and amiability. Breakfast is copious with many Sri Lankan specialties. Wherever we go in Sri Lanka we are informed that food is halal. I really appreciate this gesture from the Sri Lankan government which has made it mandatory to hotels to cater for Muslims. We also had dinner at the hotel coffee shop and enjoyed the seafood platters, though the salad portion was very little. We found out that the prices at this coffee shop were reasonable compared to other outside eateries. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves especially at the surf a d we had the opportunity to meet the squirrel there.

Bentota Beach by Cinnamon

Not worth the money

Older building and basic rooms. My reservation was for a king bed room, but only a room with three singles was offered on arrival. WiFi did not work in our wing of the hotel. Would not recommend.
