The rooms were a little dated but I wasn't paying top dollar so it more than met expectations. The staff here were all very helpful. The pool was great and offered easy beach access. The most impressive part of my 2 night stay here was the Ivory restaurant. Most places I ate at in Thailand did either good western food... More

The rooms are big, but they are not well-maintained. They need renovation. There was no Wi-Fi in the room unless you paid for it. There was a free Wi-Fi in the lobby and restaurant. The lobby was tiny and outdoor so it did not have AC. The beach is nice, however, there are a lot of seaweed and tar in... More

We checked into the Iyara after moving from a hotel on the other side of the island. The Iyara was perfectly located at one end of the main road in Chaweng; this allowed for easy access to the wonderful markets, bars and restaurants that were only a short walk away. During our stay the staff were wonderful. They were helpful,... More

We visited Iyara in March. Hotel staff was very friendly and professional. We found hotel rooms and facilities very clean. Great location. Right on the beach and close to the shops and restaurants. Hotel offers delicious breakfast. We also enjoyed lunch there. Mouthwatering sandwiches and delicious cocktails. Try freshly squeezed orange juice. ...mouthwatering! !! We would definitely come back again.

We stayed for four nights after moving from a nearby hotel. We had a cabana with a garden view. The room had two single beds and had a safe. The room and bathroom were clean but the bathroom needs an update. The shower isn't great and changes between hot and cold, my friend tried the shower in the bath and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in February 2014. Loved the breakfast buffet but don't show up to early for it as they are a little understaffed in the early morning. The housekeeping lady was very nice, efficient and friendly. We have a little problem with the shower, sometimes its hot sometimes its not, but otherwise everything is good. Location... More

First time stay at Lyara Beach hotel - would stay again with no issues. Hotel is very well located: Beach at the front door step and night life starts right outside the back door! Breakfast is a great feast, best spent leisurely looking out over the sea right in front of you. The pool is clean and a great place... More

The hotel has a great facility for swimming and sunbathing. Good food, and a wonderful breakfast. Hotel staff are nice and friendly service. Would recommend the excellent spa facilities at the plant. It is close to shops and restaurants. Would recommend going for a walk on the promenade below the hotel. Peter Norway

Stayed 10 days with a friend in their "president" suite. We had a great time during our stay, and really loved the combination of being located on the beach, close to the center of everything ( 2 min. walk ) and yet still far away from midnight noise. People were very friendly at the hotel and they kept smiling wether... More
