Hotel Rocore is, like most Japanese hotels, very clean and has superb staff (English-speaking, resourceful, were able to help with logistics and advice for things to do outside the hotel). If you stay in Naha just for some time to explore that part of Okinawa and want to experience the Makishi market, which I highly recommend, then Rocore is a great choice. It is within walking distance to the market and many other stores on the International Street (Kokusai Dori). Adjusting for price, including and excluding great breakfast, this hotel offers a lot of value in my view!
The hotel was clean. Room was small but we expected that. Staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly when I could not connect to internet. A guy came to the room and got me connected with a cable. The internet speed was quite fast. Little disappointed that we did not get help with luggage when we arrived, but did get help when we left.
Staff were very friendly, but had very limited English skills (so study up)
Room in main building is very large (for Japan) and went above and beyond with servicing the room each day.
Lacks places to just lounge around inside the hotel - especially when it is very hot outside.
Pools are great, but they were doing renovations around the pool so no real option to relax by the pool. The renovations finished a day before we left and they added a few deck chairs. Pools open late and close late.
A great hotel, but if you are a westerner who likes a resort to laze around and relax at the hotel, this hotel doesn't fit that bill.
Important info - there is a small supermarket 20 metres from hotel. I did not discover this until a few days into my stay as it is down a side street off the hotel. I asked for directions to a convenience store from staff the first night, but as I had mentioned a family mart they gave me directions to a place hundreds of metres away so as it was late we decided against it. But once I discovered the supermarket I was there every evening stocking up on water and treats.
