Pros: The architecture and swimming pool
Cons: The food was ok
Pros: Calm and quite , 3 minutes walk to beach ,
Cons: Some staff mainly room service guys a bit awkward in response , bath kit not refilled for 2 days . Beach side Some chair or recliners should have been placed by hotel as that’s USP .
Pros: The property is beautiful, both the building and the grounds. We had an enormous bed and a private courtyard area that opened onto the main garden/pool. Lovely mature trees and colourful flowers. The train line runs across the end of the garden and you walk over that straight onto the quiet beach. It was entertaining to watch the train chug along the single track as you lay by the pool. They aren't very frequent so are not disturbing. Staff very attentive. Pool towels carefully folded with flowers, and extras brought without being asked. A dish of nuts brought when it was noticed we were having a beer from the mini bar on our patio.
Cons: Location is fairly remote so not for long stays unless you just want to relax by the beach and pool.
Pros: Large suite, beautiful grounds, lovely pool, very near beach
Pros: Beautiful lodging. Good value. Excellent food. Quiet.
Cons: Although near beach, no beach chairs or umbrellaa
Pros: Beautiful buildings and grounds, fantastic staff, very comfortable room
Pros: Breakfast was super complete and attending to all kind of preferences. Staff was always exceeding expectations they remember all what me and my daughter would like to eat and drink!
Cons: The ants in the bed and in the bathroom :)
Pros: The view from my balcony was phenomenal. My room was spacious and cozy.
Cons: I had an Ayurvedic body massage there but the therapist was sexually harassing me that he tried to go down on me.
Pros: Located in a quiet lane which has many other luxury villas. This had a very colonial feel , right from the moment we stepped in. We were welcomed with a glass of fresh papaya juice. Welcoming staff, especially Chaman who helped us find a good local taxi driver. All other staff people were very courteous & wanting to serve us well. And always with a smile on their faces. The room.... superb! Honestly, I didn’t expect it to turn out so good! It was huge!! With an added floor which had a kids bed. The bed was good & the chairs overlooking the garden were perfect for sipping ur Ceylon tea while doing nothing! The Sri Lankan food was very good; must try. You need to tell them a night before if u wish to have SL breakfast. The beach was just across the villa gardens. Only adventure was the railway line which u need to cross to reach to the beach. But the beach was good with not many people. I enjoyed my evening walks with my wife watching a lovely sunset. Lastly, A GREAT PLACE TO UNWIND AWAY FROM THE CITY CHAOS!!
Cons: I guess the bathroom needs to be updated a bit. Though kept very clean, just feels a little worn out! And the positioning of air con in the room. In the afternoon, It takes a long time to cool the room.
Pros: The staff was friendly. The breakfast spread was delicious. The room was clean

AC also very noisy and disturb our sleep. 5.) missed coffee set in the room, 6). Bfast was not really exciting with comparing to other hotels which we stayed in similar room rates . Should improve and give more choices ..
Pros: The staff were very friendly and most helpful, nothing was too much trouble.
Cons: That our stay wasn’t for longer!
Pros: This is a beautiful hotel on the riverbank in Bentota. Quiet, relaxing, great view, and great pool for swimming. The staff is helpful, especially Indika who understood our wishes/needs and adviced us accordingly. The hotel offers to take you to Bentota Beach by boat, which is a fun experience too. The beach was nice with clean sand and not crowded. Highly recommend this place.

Pros: Great service, lovely property and the best views!
Pros: Very friendly staff especially Sam who was very helpful, great location and facilities
Nestled on the beach, this Beruwela resort is within 1 mi (2 km) of Moragalla Beach and Bentota Beach. Kaluwamodara Bridge and Kande Vihare Temple are also within 1 mi (2 km).
Pros: Beautiful Garden & Pool as well as the beach in front of the Hotel is worth a visit!
Cons: The hotel is over 20 years old and despite some renovations it looks old. The staff except for one lady at reception were rude and unprofessional and expecting to be tipped for every service. Pool chairs are reserved by the guest and labeled by the pool attendant, once again for a tip! Most Guests are over 50 and German, so everywhere you go in the hotel you are addressed in German. If you are anything else than German you get ignored and if you are Indian looking and female, no attention is given what so ever! The western food presentation is outdated and the taste blend, the local food is westernized with no hint of spice at all! The room was very spacious, but old and worn out, located directly over the restaurant. Mattress was old, hard and supported by a wooden board underneath.
Pros: Lovely staff, lovely beach, delicious food, very clean
Cons: A little bit out of date. Could do with a change of style. Needs air con in lounge area.
Pros: Very clean, nice and quiet hotel. Excellent for ayurvedic treatments.
Cons: It would be nice if you don’t have to go tru restaurant to get to the pool and the beach.
Pros: The staff service is the best.
Cons: There is not many things included.
Pros: Amazing place, very quite to relax. The best hotel in Sri Lanka.
Cons: Everything was ok.
Pros: European standards of clean, the room was comfortable with a nice view, the lounge chairs by the pool were fantastic.The gardens were beautiful also and there was generally a nice atmosphere. pretty much what you would expect from any 'all-inclusive' hotel, even though I only went for the breakfast arrangement.
Cons: Hotel was completely German, including the information in the room and the movies showing on the television. For someone who is not German, this was a but frustrating. Hotel is filled with middle-aged people. As a younger female, I the hotel staff was a little to eager to interact with me and even approached me outside the hotel.
Pros: I liked that it was small children not allowed hotel.
Pros: The gardens were verdant and the best we have seen in Sri Lanka. The food was good and the rooms were spacious and had everything we needed. I especially liked the outside eating area that was covered with umbrellas and trees. A very nice peaceful environment. Several entertainment events available to enjoy if one wants and plenty of loungers, towels etc.. Walk outside and you are on the beach with lots of shops, restaurants and a safe place to snorkel.
Cons: As most guests are on inclusive packages it did take quite some time and a lot of paperwork to order and receive anything outside our B&B package. It did not affect our enjoyment but best to know that most of the guests are speaking German as their mother tongue.

A shuttle from the airport to the hotel is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: The hotel is in a good location set just back from the beautiful Bentota beach with its huge sweep of golden sand. It is low rise and comfortable, with a large pool. I may say that in the general facilities are quite good. In its earlier years this hotel must have been truly a 5* hotel. You can imagine its days of glory. Now 5* are overrated. It's no luxury here and the hotel needs a complete overhaul. The stuff is the only one who is 5*: very helpful and kind. Although we checked out at 12, they let us linger 3 hours more at the pool( our train to Colombo arrived at 3.40) and we were given towels and beach beds. It was very nice taking into consideration that on our arrival day we could not enjoy the pool entirely because of some kind of "event". Also we were welcomed with cold drinks. The breakfast was very good too but I only ate fresh, on the spot made food: delicious egg hoppers ( you should try it), omelette and gaufre. I'll give that to this hotel. WIFI is very good and the bed very comfortable.
Cons: We had a basic room booked last minute but still even a basic room in a 5* should be impeccable. Our room reflected a lack of maintenance. The room was clean but the bathroom not so much. No complimentary water in the room. I don't want freebies but our minibar was empty too and I was thirsty. Also we arrived during the weekend and an 'event' was held outside the hotel witch lasted almost all afternoon and was incredibly loud. I was told by reception that during weekend many locals come to enjoy here. I do not have a problem if they behave properly. But they took up the entire pool, bumping and tossing so I could swim only after they left. Some people entered the water with their travelling clothes on although you should shower before entering the pool or if your religion says otherwise at least to slip into new cleaned clothes before entering the pool.
Pros: Stayed with my wife, the hotel was fantastic and i would like to thank to the management ( Mr. David ) for the room arrangements with all VIP amenities in the room.
Pros: The manager Mr. Raj was a good man. Me upgraded the rooms for us. We a note that the suits r located at the 1st level and they both have elevators. Incase u r disable or require special assistance there is a problem there.
Cons: The house keeping staff needs more training as in how to help or to assist the guest.
Pros: SUCH a beautiful hotel - the grounds are beautiful with 2 swimming pools and plenty of space for a volleyball of football game! The staff are incredible, very easy to get along with and work really hard!! Our stay was perfect!
Pros: Super front staff.
Pros: Excellent rooms, room service and very nice staff. Breakfast was good too. Love the property !
Cons: The pool area could have been arranged better for relaxing outside. Could have more facilities for play. Better tea and coffee needed.
Pros: Nothing to like. Hotel is beyond economicall repair. AC unit is split type and temperature want go below 23.5c / noisy. U can hear the train everytime it passes behind the Hotel. Hotel allows locals to access pool for small price unfortunately it cramps the pool and reciption. Rooms balcony has no privacy. Technically you are sitting with 2 neighbors. Hotel should not be rated more than 2 stars
Cons: path room. Busy breakfast with no international food verity and 10:30am you would be lucky to find something to eat
Cons: The classification as 5 star hotel is far too generous
Pros: The location right on the beach, the large green garden with 2 pools and a delicious breakfast (the hoppers were highly appreciated!).
Cons: The bed was in used condition, the mattress not to the standard we can expect in such hotel. The room, not far from the reception was quite noisy.

Pros: The property is huge. The pool was clean and well maintained. The rooms were spacious and good. It's very close to the beach. The staff was helpful. My kids wanted to have Maggie one of the days and they allowed me to cook in the kitchen. It was very kind of them to do that.

Pros: It’s 2 minutes walk from the beach. It’s surrounded by trees. Breakfast was ok. The stuff also was very friendly.
Cons: The water from the tab was yellow. From the sink, the shower water and in the toilet as well. Pretty disgusting considering you’ll have to take a shower or wash your face and your teeth. Also for what you are charged you can easily find a better place.

Pros: Reception staff was very rude and they don't know to greet and welcome guest , they speak with guest rude way driver and bell boys better than reception and senior reservation staff
Pros: The swimming pool is very nice, although it’s too shallow. The location right in front at the beach is also excellent.
Cons: The smell of humidity in the rooms, the minibar was empty, the “cinema” was not working, the blankets were old and broken and the shower didn’t have a good hot water supply. That is not what you expect of a 5stars hotel.
Pros: Location was great, entire experience was poor - service standards is way below Lankan standards
Cons: Staff have forgotten to smile, Spoilt fruit, old bacon & old muffins, croissants served for breakfast. On pointing this to mr.sampath the restaurant manager, he said he’s only the manager, food falls in the chef section. It feels like they either don’t like this business, you struggle to see a nice approach, food portions ala carte is very small
Pros: It made us feel like home. The view of the beach and pool from the room was breathtaking.
Cons: There should be more activities and games in the hotel. If there are kids around they may tend to get bored.
Pros: Overrated Hotel! The rooms were not clean. There were no sleepers inside the room and no toothbrush. Upon calling room service a couple of times, we were still not given the items. It was a nightmare to stay at this hotel. The only positive thing here was the beach view 'only if you get a chance to live in a beach facing room'.
Cons: The rooms were not clean. There were no sleepers inside the room and no toothbrush. Upon calling room service a couple of times, we were still not given the items. It was a nightmare to stay at this hotel. The only positive thing here was the beach view 'only if you get a chance to live in a beach facing room'.
Pros: The staff where just fantastic. So friendly and helpful. The room overall was good with a great view of the pool and beach. A little bit more expensive than it possibly could of been but overall a nice place to stay by the beach at Bentota.
Pros: Friendly staff, extremely clean. Great views of beach. Close to cute, affordable and authentic restaurants. Short walk to town. Easy to get tuk-tuk to activities.
Cons: I organised my own transport to airport via Uber but the drivers that wait out the front of the hotel didn’t like that and forced him to leave. I felt like the hotel security could have stepped in here as I wasn’t sure what was going on
Pros: Room rate we paid.
Cons: The hotel was not up to the standard of other hotels we stayed in around Sri Lanka for the money we paid, however, the manager and his staff went well above and beyond to look after us which made the overall experience very good.

A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available on request), and free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: The Beach was nice , we could walk around to other restaurants on the Beach in the near vicinity. There was nothing great and about the resort .
Cons: It seemed that Resort had staff shortage or cost cutting measures in place. There was no one on recpetion after 10 PM . The Pool Boy was a very rude person . My wife sat on a beach bed which was prepared with a cushion and towel . as a Hotelier myself , my wife has seen several hotels and knows that all good hotels prepare beach beds in the morning and put reserved signages on the ones which are already assigned. There was no sign on this one. The Pool Boy called he with loud and rude voice , almost insulting her in front of other guests . it was not expected in sri lanka as our experience in all other properties was more then 120% good. The Swimming pool throughout sri lanka closes at 10 PM , but in this Resort it closed at 7.30 Pm , The Beach bed cushiosn were removed at 6 PM , The whole swimming pool and garden area was dark with no lights at all , making it look dead. may be if managment lights it up with some light music and keep pool open till 10 pm they would make more revenue on beverage sales itself. The staff had no proper training , they gave me wrong opening hours of the spa. some staff had problems in speaking english . The breakfast was almost cold (even the hot items) . The spa was just two rooms with bed , the massage in itself was ok. The staff was showing an open Bias towards western Long staying guests . instead of us short stay asians. some staff were nice and smiled when ever we met them. Overall , I would not suggest to go there if you are not used to such properties . and its not for familes with Kids.
Pros: 1. Rooms are very good and spacious. 2. Beach view from room is fabulous. 3. Location of the hotel is also on beach.
Cons: 1. Reception area and parking area are same. There is no Aircondition in the reception area. 2. Very slow checkin process and staff does not understand basic English. Only one lady duty manager knows proper English. 3. Buffet breakfast not served. Instead alakart breakfast served which is not acceptable. 4. Hot shower not available. Inspite of complaints the problem was not resolved.
Cons: Too far from town.
Pros: Very clean and comfortable room. Friendly staff.
Cons: There was nothing I didn't like.
Pros: It was situated on a lovely beach.
Cons: The food selection on the buffet was very limited, the food was not nice at all. Too much spicy food, meat was mostly fat, pasta was overcooked and too soft and not a lot of options. The breakfast was terrible. We ended up going back to our room and just ordering room service continental breakfast. The pools are not very welcoming as the colour of the pool tiles look dirty so we didn't use the pools.
Pros: Staff including Tarak and Senaka ensured our stay be as comfortable as it could be. In the early morning ours they arranged milk for my kid which is really appreciative.
Cons: Driver's accommodation is only available for booking through travel operators and no free accomodation was available for booking through online portals including booking.com
Pros: Many thanks team, it was a pleasure staying in the resort and we enjoy the the moment, nice location and helpful staff
Cons: No thing
Pros: The staff and the large room
Cons: The entrance
Pros: Well trained staff with smily faces and friendyness. We enjoyed the relaxing hotel environment (specially the long swimming pool) and delicious food.
Pros: Massage was good.
Cons: The staff were lazy and rude. Our air conditioning didn’t work. We checked in and had to go back downstairs to collect our bags as they forgot them... We then were woken up at about 9:30pm to loud banging on our front door a staff member demanding we come to reception now to pay our bill which we had already signed to add on to the room charge. Worst accommodation experience we have ever had! Would highly recommend to stay elsewhere.

Pros: We like the location of the villa, and the river. Arrangement of villa is tremendous to us. Private pool is a good option.
Cons: Pool is not clean for days, we didn't dive. Property should renovate immediately, as it looks like very old abandoned place. Totally ambiance is not so good.

Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk, luggage storage, and a library. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: Staff couldn’t be more helpful & friendly & went out of their way to cater for our every need. Restaurant was super, the food exceeded expectations & the waiters and chef were always attentive - the Sri Lankan curry was out of this world. The hotel tuk-tuk driver - Sisi - was full of great suggestions on what to see & do locally & was incredibly good value.
Cons: The sea (which is just over the railway track) was too rough to swim in, our fault for booking out of season
Pros: Connectivity with beach
Cons: Breakfast is v poor,. Kitchen service is late.l Room charges are Over priced. Front office staff non cooperative.
Pros: Location and staff
Cons: Paid for deluxe room but wasn’t like the photo although very clean
Pros: The Rooms were supernice. The open restaurante next to the railway and close to the beach with supernice food and fruit juices was lovely. The offered us to have Xmas dinner on the beach with seafood platter! Loved it! A quite place with a stunning perfect for walking or jogging!
Cons: It might be good to know that Bentota is very much about private resorts and there is no real downtown..
Pros: Great location right on the beach. Food was fantastic - I would recommend the special Sri Lankan curry (seven dishes plus rice) - excellent value. Also you must try the wunderbar cocktail. The staff were very attentive.
Cons: The rooms were basic but clean. However when you’re in this location, you won’t want to spend long in your room anyway. There is a train line running all along the coast. It runs between the hotel and the beach. We thought that this added to the hotel’s character, and it was fun to see the trains pass. However light sleepers may find them noisy. First night the trains woke me but after that no problem.
Pros: We stayed for one night at Wunderbar and were overall quite disappointed. Although it’s not without its charms and eager staff, Wunderbar leaves much to be desired. When we arrived we were greeted with welcome drinks and shown to our room. The hotel is set back a bit from a nice beach and right beside the train tracks which I enjoyed. Our room was spacious and clean and had a lovely outdoor veranda, but fixtures and furnishings are outdated and the beds were very uncomfortable - I could hardly sleep. We ate at the hotel’s restaurant and ordered seafood which was expensive compared to nicer places we’ve eaten at in Sri Lanka and really quite terrible. Perhaps our mistake was in allowing them to upsell us on lobster and prawns which were sadly over cooked. The French fries were very good though. WiFi only worked in the reception area which is far from the common areas and rooms (no WiFi available in rooms). We had a late flight out of Colombo and Wunderbar was not able to accommodate a late checkout or provide us with a place to shower so we left early in the morning and rented a room elsewhere for the day. I wished we had just stayed elsewhere from the start.
Cons: Too many staff sitting around waiting to pounce on you to take you on a Tuk Tuk, sell you seafood from the display and lure you into their gem shop. Overpriced, definitely not 4 stars. Bad WiFi, bad drinks, badly prepared seafood. We recommend staying at Ocean View next door for value.
Pros: Dedicated and friendly staff - the maitre d’hotel didn’t ask for a tip, but rather for a good review.
Cons: Cleanliness was marginal to non-existing, very limited activities
Pros: The location - right on a beautiful quiet beach The staff were so helpful going out of their way to make sure you had everything that you needed. I travelled alone and always felt looked after. The rooms were big and clean The food was really tasty and huge portion sizes
Pros: Bright big and clean room. Nice view. The beach is great. Can see the train passing. Very special experience.
Pros: Nothing to like about this property
Cons: There isn’t a single item to list. I don’t know where to start from the doors of the rooms to bathroom shower nothing was in order. Even after paying for half board basis the dinner was pathetic
