HELP!!!! Need info on Club Bentota please!

by andiandjude Online Now Jul 10, 2006 at 12:01 PM

We're thinking of getting married at Club Bentota in Nov 2007 & would appreciate any information from anyone who knows of this hotel or who has stayed there recently. How does it compare to Bentota Beach & Eden Resort & Spa? Is it possible to swim & snorkel off the beach there? Has anyone got married there through Hayes & Jarvis? What was the wedding like? How's the service & location of the hotel? etc etc etc!!!!

Any info would be much appreciated as we're getting a headache trying to decide where to go & some of the other hotels would work out too expensive for our guests!

Thanks very much

Andi & Jude :o)

    Hi Club Bentota has recently been refurbished, and is again open for tourists, you cannot really compare this with the Eden or Bentota beach as they are different star ratings.
    I would be very wary about booking the Bentota Beach at this time, as they have put back the refurbishment of this hotel from now until next May (2007), so knowing how things work out there like i do, it could be taking a big chance if it will be open in time for your holiday.
    When it does reopen, it will be an upmarket spa resort with a new flashy name too(Cinnamon Beach), so obvioulsy the prices will reflect this.
