    Very bad reflection on the Taj name

    Very disappointed by this Taj hotel. The condition of the hotel is quite bad and our room had some kind of roach infestation. Two days were completely ruined by the terrible service we received by the staff about the infestation, even after emailing the hotel and Taj Inner circle. We were quite happy about leaving the hotel and shocked by the state of the hotel, being a Taj property. The location on the beach is stunning though. The spa is fantastic but had a bad experience while billing about our spa charges as well. The manager/head chef came over and apologized twice but there is no point of apologies if nothing is done to rectify the issues.

    Sam at the restaurant was the differentiator

    I can simply say our stay was memorable with the excellent service given by Sam at the restaurant. His level of empathy and active listening skills was remarkable. He will be a good value driver as he recommends good upscale techniques for the hotel. He made the difference to us of the service offered by taj. Overall staff friendliness and staff motivation was noteworthy. Never seen such motivated staff in all departments. Loved the pool, the view from the pool, rooms looked beautiful and the views from the rooms was excellent for a beach hotel in the southern coast.

  • 6.0.Good

    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.
