AVANI Bentota Resort & Spa, Bentota
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).

Tired hotel but kept going by nice beach & staff.
Hotel is a bit old and needs improvement. The power sockets need replacing! Across our stay, the menu was exactly the same - breakfast, lunch and dinner!! Virtually same offering without much catering to vegetarians. Beach deckchairs need to be paid, which I expected to be complimentary for hotel guests. Make sure you have enough mosquito repellents as the fumigations are not effective at all. I was bitten quite a bit although the staff did their best with the spraying. Also the swimming pool was not very clean. But on balance, the staff are helpful and smiling always. They even obliged with an early checkin and late checkout, which was very nice of them. I get the feeling that any non core offerings are extremely expensive. For example, the airport transfer quote from hotel was $125 each way while we got the same car from a private online chap for 56$.

Unfit room served to the Guest!
'Empty minibar,Torn, discoloured and unclean towels, stagnant water in shower enclosure, bathroom fittings aged up, rusted and uncleaned! TV not working, poor wifi which totally stopped working from early morning , no lift, escalator! 15 step steep staircase to climb to the room , may be difficult for elderly people! Poor staff response! They served me a unfit for guest room and it was not worth the cost!' I feel I have been deceived to pay $149 for such a poor conditioned room. I put up verbal and written complaints to the hotel only to get a promise of a better service next time! I am not at all happy!

Staff were nice but the hotel needs a refurb. Not worth it for the price.
