Shame about the foodPosted Jun 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
A great hotel with amazing rooms spoilt by the quality of food. The rooms were amazing, the beach was fantastic and the pools were great too. If you can put up with a lack of choice of food then you won't be disappointed.

very enjoyable- nice rooms- only real complaint would be that restaurants had no air conditioning.

Lovely retreat for couplesPosted Mar 11, 2013
Pros: The pool setting and the luxury room and balcony view.
Cons: The hotel is a bit on the pricey side. Our only complaint regarding this is some of the 'rich' guests were rude to the staff (clicking fingers etc).
Location: Tthe beach is fairly quiet and you cannot see any of the resorts/hotels from the beach. You wont find many bar/restaurants outside of hotels.
We loved our stay in Avani Bentota. We stayed for 5 nights towards the end of our holiday for a bit of luxury before we flew home. It was exactly that - pure luxury. From the welcome drink and cool face towel on arrival to the help of the staff carrying our bags and giving us take away breakfast for our early 4am check out. The pool was the perfect setting and the room and view from our balcony was lovely. The food was excellent with lots of choice and the staff couldn't do more to assist you.

ideal for leisure and swimmingPosted Feb 25, 2013 on Hotels.com
very nice stay, great service staff, wonderfull hot swimming pools, access to the wonderfull beach and ocean. Good buffet restaurant, average other restaurants. Poor spa service... fantastic for relaxation, not for sightseeing (far from attractions).

Relaxing, very good service, and overall gorgeous!Posted Jan 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel is excellent, the staff very friendly, the setting stunning! We were there with our 3 1/2 year-old daughter. The layout makes it perfect for families with small children, without being too noisy or annoying for people without children.The Christmas Eve dinner was just beautiful.We will return to the Avani for sure!
