Pick up from the airport by hotel over 1 hour late. Called hotel multiple times each time was told will get call back in 5 minutes but never got called. Finally arrived at hotel not even an apology. Then hot water doesn't work in room. Was told I didn't know how to use faucets until I convinced them to fix it. So they fixed it, but on the final day the hot water didn't work again, plus now no cold water either. Hotel itself was ok, but just too many problems with service. You will be frustrated if you encounter any problems because the staff will tell you hakuna mutata - no problems. Yes, no problems for the, plenty problems for you.

Good place BUT awful management!
The place is good and the stuff is kind BUT we have a terrible experience connected with our reservation. We've booked and paid a delux double room with qween bed and sofa bed and sea view and we received a comfort double room with no sofa , smaller and with suspicous view from the litte windows instead. We have a terrible view from one of the windows of a moldy wall. We have some problems with the bathroom faucet. It was hard to control the temperature of the water.And the management do nothnig. They gave us Bungalow N 1. DO not go for it. This is their worst room. The manager of the hotel told us to deal the problem with the site that we booked the room from. This is unprofessional and rude. We were totaly disappointed.
This is the view from one of the windows of Bungalow N1.

We absolutely loved our time at Aya Beach Bungalows! We had the bungalow that had french doors all along the front side (bungalow 12) so our first view in the morning and last view at night was right at the Indian ocean!! The tide rolls in late afternoon and remains high until around 8-9 am. The sound of the waves crashing up against the sea wall is so wonderful. Food was good, staff was soooo helpful and friendly. The infinity pool is a great option if you do not want to do the beach and ocean. We really had an excellent stay and I had no complaints. I would highly recommend this place, and I recommend paying the slightly higher fee for bungalow 12 as the view is simply outstanding.
