Iyara Beach Hotel & Plaza, Koh Samui
Best Spot in Chaweng
My wife and I stayed at Iyara Beach Hotel and Plaza as part of our honeymoon. We found the staff to be very helpful, even though some had questionable English capabilities - but in general this never created many issues. The location of the hotel is exceptionally good with many restaurants in close walking distance. The hotel has a fantastic pool, only meters from the beach. The rooms are comfortable, but we did feel that they are a bit dated and require some maintenance. Also, the room we got hadn’t been cleaned as well as we would have liked upon arrival, but this was soon remedied. The one thing that could have been better, was the water pressure and bath/shower as a whole - the shower curtain was yellow from age and the bath was stained. All in all, we had a fantastic stay at the hotel and have every intention of visiting again at the end of 2018.

Bamboozled by online pics :( Stay elsewhere!
My husband and I stayed at the Iyara from February 1-5, 2017 and had one of the worst Thai experiences we've had together thus far (we are no strangers to Thailand - this was my 5th trip and my husband's 9th trip; we've been to Chiang Mai, Hua Hin, Krabi, & Phuket together). During our short stay, our air conditioner broke 3 times, electricity went out 2 times, and we were left with absolutely NO WATER for an entire day. Because of the no water situation on our strip of rooms, the FD suggested we shower in a room that was vacant and waiting to be cleaned. We begrudgingly did as we were desperate to shower before a nice dinner, but of course, a worker almost walked in on us. Also, the "turn down service" never happened during our entire stay, and our beach towels were never changed - I had to personally walk up to the Front Desk to ask for new ones. As for cleanliness, I fortunately had Clorox Disinfecting Wipes and wiped everything down upon check-in, and I was grossed out as the bedside tables, desk, TV stand, coffee tables, and bathroom counters were incredibly dirty. After all of these issues, we tried talking to a manager 3 separate times to no success. The saving graces for this place were the staff (friendly and prompt), the beach, and prime location. However, my husband and I were very, very disappointed and would strongly advise not staying here if you're looking for a relatively nice vacation. I would shell out a bit more money and stay at a nicer resort.

good but...
we had 2 delux room .it look like in the picture but its old . the room are in a place that all the time you have water in the entrance to the room .that makes its in convince. the stream of the water in the shower are terible slow ,very very slow. that makes the room for us not good and not fun at all .the toilet alway stuck. and didn't work good. the place of the hotel is good . the pool near the sea it's fun and nice. the breakfast was very good . some of the staff are very nice .because of the of the water stream in the shower and toilet I will not come back to this hotel.

worse hotel on Koh Samui Island
Worse management service and low standard room wouldn't pass a normal 1 star rating! No WIFI in the room or functioning in common area. old bathrobes with holes. Leaking and dripping cold showers. damaged walls. Non working safe even after multiple repair attempts.... awful place and matching low class reception service at a very high price.

Thumbs Down
We stayed here mid June, low tide season. If you want to swim in the ocean, do not stay here. La Mai Beach area is a better choice. Breakfast Buffet is terrible. Do not eat in the hotel.
