We were skeptical about this property right from the moment we booked it. But we felt good by the ambiance of the reception. The room was also neat and spacious. We had got room on first floor with balcony facing the beach. The TV in the room was useless, hardly 10 channels were there. There is no wifi in room.... More

It's a beautiful hotel to stay in. Very nice and spacious rooms. It's a little away from tge busy roads and the city. It gets so silent in the nights that you can hear the waves crashing on the beach. Great place to relax. Drawbacks - We had dinner and breakfast in their restaurant and it was pretty average. WiFi...

It was a nice stay at Taprospa, rates were not that high and the property is very well maintained. Staff is very welcoming :-). The amenities are also good, especially the swimming pool is very clean an tidy.

I visited this resort on 29th Jan 2015. First they gave me room 304 which had non working ac and ants moving around. The TV was not working. After complaining and quarrelling with the manager several times they finally shifted me to room 217 which is very much better than the previous one. There are very few persons to service... More

Taprospa Footprints is a property located on the Bentota Beach. The rooms are cosy. Also the corridors or even the reception area is not properly lighted. I don't know the reason behind it.

Been back to this boutique hotel twice and it seems like home to me.
