My husband and I wanted to stay near the city at Chaweng Beach during the latter half of our honeymoon. We chose are more reasonable priced hotel after our honeymoon package at a more nicer resort. I didn't expect much but wanted a clean, working room. When we arrived, the hotel is location in back of a shopping plaza. The rooms are very old and mosquitos are a plenty. Every night, we had to remove at least 5 mosquitos before going to bed. The restroom was the worst. The shower had on and off cold and hot water. One minute it would be cold, the very next piping hot. The first night, I ended up taking a cold shower because there was no hot water. Moreover, how the shower is set up, there is flooding around the tub. The staff informed us to use towels to soak up the water.
The breakfast that came with the hotel was not good. There were flies on the food and they only use food covers for the hot items. You get a choice of coffee or tea. Juices were artificial coloring. And food was sausage, bacon, and some pastries. Some fruit also available.
The location is good. But not as good as some hotels more north. The beach in front of Iyara is muddy and not clear. If you walk about 15 minutes up, the beach waters are a lot nicer, blue, clear, and cleaner. Originally our stay was for a week but we arranged to fly out after three nights. I would not stay here again. It was too unsanitary and old for me to enjoy the stay. Even if it means paying $50/night more for a nicer hotel, it would be worth it.
