2/10 Poor

No value for money
Staff were not helpful. Both manager & chef were on leave. No dinner arranged as restaurant was closed & not informed in advance. WiFi & TV were not working & there was no one to resolve this. Staff don’t know how to respect guests. Overall no value for money.

Great stay
We were staying at this hotel for one night as we are travelling and we were pleasantly surprised. The staff were welcoming and accommodating on arrival and throughout our stay. The room was spacious and clean. The hotel is situated on the beach with sunbeds available. It was a great overnight stay, we would would definitely come back!

Don't book this hotel!!!
The worst hotel and service ever! Don't stay there!!! The room we got wasn't the same as on the photo when booking. We felt deceived! Check in was also the slowest ever with an older lady who couldn't understand English and wasn't kind at all. We were looking forward to check out. Expensive for what you get!!! We would suggest not to have this hotel in their offer!

Awesome beach access, average hotel for high price
The key point of this Hotel is its location next to the beach. You leave the hotel garden, pass the train rails and are basically on the beach, which is in wonderful condition (cleanliness, sun beds, etc.) and calm (only few people there, no vendors strolling around). The hotel itself is still in the process of refurbishment. Our room was brand-new refurbished, however, the standard (e.g. bathroom, fridge, AC) was mediocre by best. Additionally, pests were present (mosquitoes, roaches), since you couldn't close windows / doors entirely during the nighttime. That is all fine for a backpacker budget hotel, however, if you charge 75 USD per night like the hotels next to it (Wunderbar Hotel, Amal Hotel), you should meet their higher standards as well. Payment via card wasn't possible, which is ridiculous with that price if you stay some days. I wouldn't recommend it if you get something else in Bentota for the price.
