good for the price

Posted Jul 18, 2017
Pros: Clean beach, nice pool and good for relaxing.
Cons: Check in should be quicker, most customers want to get to the room due to travel fatigue.
Location: Not much to do outside, pool and a good book.
Good average hotel, no hype like other hotels we stayed. Nothing special, good relaxing and food was good.

This hotel is on a lovely stretch of beach

Posted Mar 14, 2017
Pros: The layout, grounds, beach and staff attention.
Cons: A bit of an update required in the bathrooms and more attention to detail re temperature of food served. The towels in the bathrooms could be better.
Location: Excellent location but next to a railway line. Be warned if a light sleeper. Trips to Galle can be achieved by train or tuk tuk.
Avani Bentota is close to the town and some excellent restaurants. The grounds are pleasant, two pools and large bedrooms.

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

Lovely, comfortable hotel in great location

Hotel was great. The resort is more touristy than many other places in Sri Lanka but it was perfect for our end of holiday wind down. Great location, lovely rooms. The only thing that let it down was the service in the bars/ restaurant / reception which was a bit lacking.

Quite and relaxing

Deck chairs in poor condition, wooden and broken. Very humid rooms. Property dated. Wooden boards at the pool rotten and repaired by nailing rubber mats on top of the holes. Breakfast reasonable, staff very attentive and friendly.
