This hotel undoubtedly is one of the best compared to the price paid. The service quality was exceptional. The check-in was extremely courteous and very quick. The room was spacious with a large balcony opening to an unobstructed spectacular view of the ocean. There pool was large and was very inviting. The food was great in taste and there was a decent spread. Again the service at the main restaurant was superb and the staff was very attentive. Finger bowls were brought even before we requested. Special appreciation to Kanchana who was extremely polite and looked into all our needs. All in all a great place to relax and hope they keep up the standards.

This is our 2nd stay at the Ekho Surf after being made to leave early in April 2019 after the devastating Easter Bombings.
We would have been happy to stay and finish our holiday but unfortunately was not allowed to,by our holiday company and on uk Government advice .
We vowed to return asap and once government advice deemed it safe to travel we booked a great 2 week bed & breakfast deal ( around £700 per person including emirate flights from London and private taxi transfers).
I would advise anyone coming to Sri Lanka to go bed and breakfast as the food is very inexpensive outside hotels with a fantastic choice and range of curries and seafood etc .
We love the Surf Ekho Hotel for the uninterrupted views of the ocean , the 2 fantastic pools, comfortable rooms, breakfast buffet etc etc.
Most of all it’s the fantastic staff that make this hotel .
There May be plusher more expensive hotels on Bentota beach but nowhere are the staff as helpful, kind , friendly and genuine. From the pool guys to Front reception to the chefs and restaurant staff, room service and cleaning staff , security , management, maintenance guys everyone we interacted with was warm , friendly ,helpful and so genuine.
We sang Karaoke together,ate and drank together,joked and swapped stories together.
Although it is currently the low season and we are dodging rain showers the temperature is fine with the sea and
Pools lovely .
As a special surprise the hotel gave wifey and i a complimentary seafood dinner for 2 last night including Lobster , prawn,calamari,sailfish,salad, fries with sushi starter and fresh fruit platter desert.
I would urge anyone thinking about a Sri Lankan chilled out relaxing holiday to visit this hotel .
Things are gradually picking up after the terrible Easter bombings but these tourist resorts and hotels really do need our help and patronage .
We hope to return again in December this year to continue the fun .
It would be impossible to name check all the fantastic people working at this hotel but keep up the good work and we will see you soon .

Good Hotel - value for money - Excellent service - Clean beach
Service staff is very friendly - Sampath and Kanchana good ambassadors for the hotel

Spa therapist not up to standard- may be rate has been discounted as a result treatment is not good.

Room tip: Sea viwe rooms in ground floor are the best

We four doctor couples stayed in this Hotel from 15th September 2019 for two days. We were welcomed by a very sweet and charming young girl Devi, manager of the front desk. She went out of her way to make us all very comfortable. Very charming young lady. The ambiance, the service, the food was per excellence. We wish the best for Devi and all members of the staff of Ekho Surf
