8/10 Very good

Position on beach, good sun beds in shade, close proximity to lagoon 50 metres. Restaurant can be a little warm, although food was good and well priced.

This property is very run and not well maintained. The service is also very poor, both upon check in and when just trying to order a drink. Definitely in need of a revamp and change of management. The only positive is the location.

The Ocean view from the room is great, and the staff was courteous and friendly. Upon arrival they offer a welcome drink, and take your luggage to the room, and also helped our driver to turn the car around. The view from the room was beautiful, the room was nice and clean. I didn't have any air condition issue as read in past reviews, the staff showed me how to turn on AC if it stopped when open the glass doors.Room service staff was extremely nice waited until we are ready, also on the day of checkout they let rest of my party wait in the room undisturbed until I returned from whale watching. The breakfast buffet was wonderful and they had a bag of breakfast ready early morning on the day I left for whale watching. I only have good things to say and highly recommend Sayura beach hotel.

4/10 Fair

One of the worst experience ever
Over-rated hôtel. Food: Limited choices and low quality. Confort: Room is good but bathroom is disappointing. Pool is located in the reception area (max 3 meters between the reception and the pool). Security: during the weekend a group of 15 men completely drunk blocked the reception and the access to the beach. Note that alcohol was served by the hotel. Beach access: can’t swim in the hotel area because of rocks. You have to walk 60 meters to reach private beach where you have to pay. Overall service is ok but the rest (confort, food and pool/beach) really disappointing. I don’t recommend this hotel at all.

This hotel is right on a very beautiful beach. Fine sand and a nice shallow protected area just adjacent to the hotel. Our room was large and had an excellent private ocean view balcony and i think all the rooms are on the ocean side. Clean, comfortable bed and pillows, decent TV with some good english channels. The price included a delicious buffet breakfast with lots of choices and an amazing ocean view. The restaurant is also pretty good for dinner and there are 3 or 4 other restaurants nearby with access from the beach. The only downside for us is that the road is narrow and very busy. There is no noticable road noise on the beach side or in the room but the road is not pleasant for walking. We rented a scooter from the hotel desk to get around in the area for a very low cost - but make sure you have an international motorbike licence because we were stopped by the police to check for license at least once a day.

Beach location
Rooms were big and comfortable. Bathroom good but no hand towels or washers or soap given. Service was excellent but very little English spoken. Location on beach were you could swim with turtles was priceless. Views fantastic. Some repairs needed in rooms.
