The beauty is the beach. Food was good but the tea and coffee was horrible. The water was may be from the river it tasted like salted. I was with a group of 15 friends. All 3 meals were buffet service. Good selection of breads. Pretty average food nothing extra ordinary to mention. Very few smiling staff. Wander why. Nice...

A vast premises by the beach with a restaurant overlooking the estuary. It looks quite old. The individual cottage like rooms offer privacy. Could spend the entire day there as they offer water sports and other activities too.

Situated across the lake, Club Bentota is only accessible by boat. Guests must wear wristbands for identification in order to access the private beach. Rooms are satisfactory with tiny bathrooms. However there is an unmistakable dampness in the rooms which penetrates the air and linen was also marked with the same unbearable stench. Air conditioning needs servicing - could hear...

Overall the hotel was good, but the best part about the hotel is its private beach, because it is situated on an island of the coast of Sri Lanka the beach is quite exclusive. Other than that we faced some issues with very poor Wifi connection in the rooms & poor TV cable connection.

No one came to help with our bags at the reception and on the boat. Room was unhygienic and had to request a new one. Hotel staff function like the srilankan politicians, as they don't know how to serve customers, in our case, paying customers. The hotel needs renovation badly as its outdated. The room sizes were really small compared...

Pros: Very few. The chef at the restaurant were courteous & would cook your special request item pretty quick. Food quality was good. Access to the beach. Cons: The room we got was a so called 'Superior' room. It was terrible. The toilet was so old, we felt that we were in a run down hotel. The bathroom shower outer...

It is situated in a fine location. The architecture is out of the ordinary. You can see that at one time it was a really superb club. But it has been allowed to deteriorate. When we stayed before in one of the larger chalets at the rear I was really impressed with the room and facilities. This time we got...

I'm a Sri Lankan and I visited this hotel on 2016/12/18 and I faced bitter experience. The restaurant staff who were working for the day shift was terrible. In fact they don't know even the meaning of "hospitality". When I'm having my lunch, I asked for a glass of water 3 times and I didn't get that. When I asked...
