Large hotel.The floors are a little confusing .The wonderful beach is quite a walk from the hotel pool, which is on the 4th floor of the hotel ( overlooking the beach and gardens.The curved pool was busy with families during our stay. Main restaurant serves buffet style breakfast/lunch/dinner with plenty of choice for most tastes.The little publicised Seaview Restaurant serves fantastic and very reasonably priced a la carte food.As always in Sri Lanka,be very cautious with the wine- it is expensive and generally not well-kept and therefore often past its best. Not much to see in Bentota itself. This hotel is probably best for families who wish to stay put,but it is not cheap.
