Everything about the hotel is beautiful, the location, the closeness to the beach, the traintrack very idyllic even its very close, the hotel's interior and its personal touch. The managers were very helpfull and approaching always with a smile on the face, we met the owner, very nice lady. The room we stayed was triple deluxe very nice, nice view and bathroom. The double bed very spacious , if only the mattresses were more comfortable. Just the insect - they were everywhere. But its nothing we can do about. and the air conditioning, even none of us like it, we had to put it on as it gets very humid, its was a bit noisy.... The staff all the men, very very friendly, trying to engage with the quests, asking always if everything is ok and how they can help. The food soooooo good, especially dinner menu, waw, everything tastes so good and fresh, western or their dishes so good and french fries the best-home made. Only breakfast was a bit down side, it was always the same choice, fruits, eggs and selection of bread. we stayed there 6 nights, so it gets a bit boring. The hotel next to our hotel, is amazing and worth visiting, there is beautiful shop and bar. one night there was a wedding next door, an elephant was at our door step. and we expeienced typical elephant ceremony...Also, tuck tuck drivers at the door step, no shortage of them, as they live in neighborhood, which is nice, to see the local people and how they live , and the fact the hotel and locals live so close to each other, makes it more authentic and warm.... 3girls had lots of fun and we can recommend the hotel to everyone. I will be back for sure. :)

This is a little bit of paradise in Sri Lanka and our second time here – we love it! The location at Bentota has direct access to a gorgeous beach, once you cross the single track railway line. With around 6 or so trains a day, this wasn’t any real nuisance and it was jolly interesting watching the locals hanging out of the doorways as the train passed! Club Villa is a small hotel with an intimate feel and very personal service. The accommodation was very good with excellent room service and, in fact, excellent service throughout the establishment. The food was excellent – with at least 4 courses at dinner and each day we were asked to choose from a limited menu what we wanted to eat that night. The limited menu was no problem because all the food was excellent. Massage services are on offer and I would highly recommend the massage I had. The pool was lovely to slip into to cool off after relaxing on the sun loungers, which were regularly moved to ensure they were either in the sun or shade depending on what we wanted. This was our favourite hotel and one we would definitely come back to.

Room Tip: Ask for a deluxe room as these are larger.

We stayed here on the recommendation of a friend of the owner. It is small with an attentive staff. Lovely rooms. Beautiful pool. Quick walk to the pristine beach. Restaurant has limited menu but all is fresh and well prepared. Excellent grilled seafood.

We had a wonderful time here recently with our children and close friends. It's an amazing, tranquil, classy establishment and you really feel like time stands still when you stay here. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and the owner, we were lucky enough to catch him, is a charming individual who is clearly passionate about the place- it used to be his family home and it still has that feeling. It saddens me to read less favorable reviews about this hotel on trip advisor, one placed by a arrogant group of people who were staying at the same time as us who behaved quite appallingly and were very rude to the manager and the staff. They were managed very well, again showing what a classy establishment this is, writing bad reviews to just get your own back is really low grade in my opinion. Just read all the other 5 star ratings and you will get the full picture of this place BTW, the train is one of the charming features of this property, really nothing to criticize.... We will certainly be back and I encourage you to do the same !!

We stayed as a family of 5 at this beautiful hotel. The staff were lovely and catered to all our needs and more. The food was delicious and beautifully presented, a must is hoppers for breakfast. Whilst there, it was my son's 8th birthday and the hotel supplied a beautiful chocolate cake to my son's surprise.
Days were spent relaxing by the pool, playing on the deserted beach, eating afternoon tea and watching the trains go by, totally relaxing
We are definitely coming back soon.

This place is lovely and the staff are absolutely the best thing about the villa. They are attentive, helpful and always thinking ahead of what you might need during your stay. The food is the best I ate in Sri Lanka - no question. I was travelling solo and was given an upgrade to Room 1 above the lounge upon arrival. This was a great room although the bathroom would be a little small if there were two people staying there. I really liked the pool and general grounds and an amazing beach is a short walk from the end of the garden. I would definitely give this place 5 stars except that I agree, for some people, the railway could be intrusive and a bit unsettling. But it wasn't for me!

A lovely looking hotel - very stylish design. A lovely garden with lots of shade a great swimming pool.
A few issues - the bathroom was very dated, looking very tired and quite small rooms, although a lovely big balcony.
Like Paradise Road it would have been good to have some sun beds and umbrellas out on the beach which is beautiful.
The breakfasts were good, however dinner wasn't quite as good as we had got used to.
