The location is great, directly on the beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful, always smiling and offering to help. The room was quite spacious, though it looked like it had seen better days. We were there in quiet season, so there wasn't much going on at night, though there's a huge strip of bars and restaurants right by the hotel.
The room we stayed in overlooked the beach but it was quite grubby and not completely clean. Our sheets seemed to be covered in sand when we arrived and the place looked like it could do with a deep clean. There was a pool but it looked quite dirty - the water was green and there was dirt on the bottom of it, and it was more like a giant wading pool than a swimming pool.
Iyara Hotel is located in an excellent location right in the middle of Chaweng Beach. It is just steps to the water and behind the hotel is a shopping plaza and the main street, full of restaurants and everything you could possibly want, including a 7 eleven at the entrance to the hotel. The pool overlooks the Sea and beachfront and the view is stunning.The staff are so friendly and will go the extra mile to attend to your needs. We were given both an early checkin and late checkout which was much appreciated. We stayed at an off peak time and the value for money for accommodation was excellent.
Superior rooms have a shower over the bath and due to the design , this floods the bath surround and therefore the floor after every shower- not a big deal really as the water drains into the floor drain eventually and we just mopped up the water with our old beach towels from the previous night. The restaurant charges a lot more than neighbouring hotel resorts for its food and drinks, which is a shame as we would have gladly eaten here and had drinks in the evening had the prices been more competitive.
Staff is friendly. Very nice beach. Nice and clean rooms.
The pool was greenish and suggested a potential health hazard. Very terrible. I spoke everyday to the manager, but after 8(!) days nothing improved- not at all. Very disappointing to not being able to use the pool. Management is apparently incompetent to manage this. Furthermore the water out of the pool showers smells heavily rusty. So, the sea is the best and only option to get wet. Aircon is noisy. However, with the help of booking.com customer service i got at least a discount on my daily restaurant bills.
I have been upgraded to deluxe room. I could not stay in the standard one. Thanks to Iyara manager.
Do not ever book standard rooms. They are facing roofs of the plaza.
1. Room very comfortable and clean 2. The staffs are very helpful and very nice. Great service! 3. The location is perfect
