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.

Taj Bentota is a beautiful resort . Our room with a large balcony overlooking the sea was very comfortable and we were well looked after by our room attendant Janaka. He was always helpful and courteous . Food at all the restaurants was good . We enjoyed going to the Oriental Pavilion Chinese restaurant and Sea View restaurant where food and service by waiters was excellent. Daily buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner at The Palms was of high quality too with a huge choice of delicious regional and international cuisine. Sam, waiter at The Palms was particularly efficient , providing excellent service. At reception Dumith Nonis was very pleasant and helpful . Overall the entire hotel ambience is pleasing though some areas could do with a bit of renovation , like the ensuite bathroom in our room 424 and some of the toilets and changing rooms in public areas of the hotel.
