Bentota truly is an amazing place. having just come back from there, the experience was indeed mind blowing. We stayed at the Hotel Marina , which wins hands down simply due to its amazing location. You have the ocean to one side( barely 10 steps to the beach) and the river on the other side..... you truly are in paradise....

I visited Hotel Marina with my family in April 2016. The hotel is in an amazing location between the river and the sea. But sadly that's the only good thing I can say for this hotel.

Exorbitant pricing for poor food, lethargic service and broken lodging. The A/C didn't work in one room I got. The food buffet was so limited that I wouldn't even call it a buffet. An absolute disaster of a holiday.

This is a very nice Hotel, situated in a barrier beach surrounded by sea on one side and Bentota Ganga estuary on the other side. Hotel is maintained neat and clean. Food was prepared and served to suit our dietary habits. Evenings and mornings can be spent in the beach which is just a few meters away from the entrance....

Good Western / Sri Lankan food, personalised service. Located between the river and the sea, on a narrow strip of land. Salt sea beach on one side, Sweet water with wildlife, mangroves and water sports on the other ! A lifetime's experience.
