                      • Group of friends
                        10.0

                        The property loacted by the sea side is beautiful! I especially liked the dining experience at the shack by the seaside, music, candle light and super prawns and lobsters. It was a heavenly experience!!

                        The check in was a little messed up. Too many people and two help desks not enough!

                      • Family with children
                        10.0

                        This an excellent hotel. It is really a 5 star hotel and the staff are excellent. The food was very good

                        We were hopping for more recreation services for children

                      • Group of friends
                        7.8

                        The staff was very friendly. The beach bar had amazing seafood dinners.

                        Internet prices were high, should be free or less expensive as every guest is expected to use the internet. The spa should offer manicure/pedicure.

                      • Single
                        3.8

                        The friendliness of the people and the general location.

                        The hotel needs a complete overhaul and does not live up to the pictures online. Very disappointing.

                        5.0

                        Certainly not 5 star hotel. No tooth paste,no tooth brushes,no slippers&no shaving razors.Food not good for Sri Lankans, We, myself & my wife were asked to wait for a few minutes until the room key is prepared.A Few minutes drag on to about 1/2 hrs although , it was well past the check in time 2.00pm, & it was around 6.00 pm.There was no complementary 2 bottles of water in the room & when reminded a waiter bought some hangers..............! Real funny isn't it....?

                      • Family with children
                        7.4

                        Hotel Room had an excellent view of the hotel, the beach was amazing. The pool side was brilliant, with the courteous staff assistance.

                        Delays in Check In and Check Out.

                        6.2

                        Even hotel being almost fully booked customers do not disturb each other and place does not seem overcrouded. No laud disturbing parties observed what is good.

                        low maintenance of pool equipment; very fair room cleaning. Rooms walls need repainting. Some cosmetic repair required.

                        Nice setting good pool nice food and good staff

                        Bathroom was a bit run down could do with an upgrade of fittings overall the hotels furniture can also be upgraded a little since not much has changed since 5 years ago when I stayed there

                        Very friendly staff

                        Our check in was complicated as we were asked to pay almost double of the price we were supposed to, then we were informed that breakfast wasn't included, I had to print my confirmation to prove that we were right about price and breakfast. A part from that everything went fine.

                        The food was excellent and they have an entertainment program for the kids.

                        Response time of personnel reception + cancellation policy (if you reserved eg 10 days stay, you have top pay 8 days irrespective of how long you are staying. My advice, just book couple of days in the quit season, see if you like it and then extend stay. Furthermore, they played with the room type depending on the availability...

                        the views were excellent. the room was very comfortable. great property.

                        the food was very average overall. the seafood grill was excellent. and one night we got really god dinner. but besides these 2 meals all other meals were very very average. certainly nowhere close to the expectations one has of food at a taj property.

                        The service

                        The AC wasn't working and they tried to fix it and they said its fixed but it wasn't :( and it was overpriced.

                        Swimming pool, location to beach.

                        Rooms are desperately in need of refurbishment for the high price we paid.Bath was very shabby.Very exspensive Hotel in comparison to other fabulous Hotels we stayed during our 16 day tour of Srilanka! Price did not include breakfast, so walked along the beach to The Bentota Beach Hotel, where the staff welcomed us as if we were resident guests.Staff at Taj Hotel we felt were very unattentive compared to other places we stayed throughout our trip.Felt as though they did not care once we had handed over our Visa card for the cost of the room.Refused to give anymore money to this establishment!!!
