The Centara Ceysands was a great resort to stay at. Rooms were good, meals were outstanding we located Sumi Tours( can found found outside front gate ) in Bentota to assist us with any tours available. Staff were friendly especially Suranjith and Sisira who were very sociable and happy to assist in any way.

Location is lovely but there are a few issues which could improve the hotel: lots of loose tiles especially around kids pool. The food is ok but they don't have a children's buffet which is surprising as they have a children's club. In the Bem cafe you often don't have all your cutlery and it takes an age to get...

I have tried Centara Blue Marine in Thailand Phuket and it was amazing, the location, price, amenities, food, service. This one I have passed by in Sri Lanka and the location I think is the best, I will definitely stay here 2-3 days when coming back again.

We stayed here for 3 nights after a brilliant but tiring 12 day tour. As soon as we arrived we felt ourselves relax. The welcome was warm and friendly and we were given a welcome drink whilst our luggage was transferred from the car to the boat. At the main reception we were met by Nilmini who is just a...

Centara Ceysands is a beautiful hotel with the beach on one side and the river on the other. The 360 restaurant was lovely set in beautiful surroundings. What really made the holiday was the staff and care towards their guests. I e.mailed the hotel about my Father's 60th birthday and we arrived to find a beautifully decorated room and cake....

We wanted a relaxing holiday and had been to Sri Lanka before and knew what to expect. Our expectations were not only fulfilled, but exceeded.
