We stayed for almost 10 days at the Avani Bentota in April 14, and really loved it. Wonderful beach with the most amazing sunsets, and you're also far from Beach Boys and people trying to sell pareos etc. in case you prefer not to be bothered.
Nice design of the building and rooms, very clean and good service. All staff were nice and very helpful and most people speak good English and German.
Large variety of both international and Sri Lankan food. We joined a beach BBQ organized one evening for a supplement of 3500 rupees, which was a little on the expensive side, but a very nice atmosphere and high quality food.
As a suggestion to the hotel: why not organize cocktails on the beach for sunset every night?
In Bentota itself, there doesn't seem to be a lot happening in the evening in terms of bars etc. - it's not a place for partying but relaxing.
There is however a big offer of activities like excursions to Galle, river boat trips etc. via local guides.
All in all, we had a wonderful stay and can only recommend the Avani Bentota!
Bentota train station is right behind the hotel - you do hear the trains in the rooms, but we didn't find it disturbing.
