AVANI Bentota Resort
Below average, over priced, in need of renovation
This hotel needs renovation, they have already started and closed one of the pools. We have booked 2 deluxe rooms, when we arrived to checkin got told only one room is available and they gave us a second room across the hotel which isn't practical with children. When we complaints the manager offered two superior rooms with full board, however food is average and due to the low number of guests they don't really spend that much effort in cooking. On the checkout they've added more that $150 on top of the price paid at, claiming it's some sort of local taxes. Very unhappy and will never come close to it again. Way Overpriced for the services offered

A night in Bentota, Sri Lanka.
At first we had issues with construction work around the room till 5pm, and problem with check in due to a mistake from my side reserving 1 adult instead of 2, they could have allowed us to check in and resolve that issue later but we were held up for a bit, that aside they gave us free dinner and late checkout therefore I am happy with how they handled it.

Nice property perfectly located on beautiful beach
Must stay in the new renovated hotel room area. We were very happy and satisfied with our room. Many other hotel guests told us how unhappy they were with the 'old wing' rooms. Our room was clean, comfortable and very convenient to pool, beach, lounge area and breakfast, which was outstanding. The beach is beautiful and stretches for a mile + in either direction, so great for long walks. Sunsets are directly in front of beach/hotel grounds. Beautiful lounging grounds with palm trees and shade. Bar staff and service is hit or miss, not very accommodating.

I was hesitant to spend the money to stay here after all of the bad reviews. I am so glad I did stay here. The staff is wonderful & helpful. The facilities are beautiful. It is very relaxing. I thought the food was delicious (vegetarian).
