The staff was very welcoming and accommodating, reservations were for two double beds but they were able to change it to a room with one king bed. Check in was very smooth. Service was absolutely impeccable. The hotel is beautiful, well kept, and clean; located near a golf and country club.
My second stay at the Nago Marriott...everything is a bit pricey, from the room rate to the restaurants, but the price is WELL worth it. Also, the location is good if you intend for the hotel itself to be your destination, it is a bit of a drive to most of the nearby attractions (including the aquarium and other Churaumi-area sites).
The location is great but there were a few frustrations. The hotel beach doesn't allow free swimming so you have to swim in the netted off area. Great but it closed at 5pm - just about the time the tide was coming in to make it viable. Obviously the reason for keeping swimming in the netted area is sensible - poisonous fish.
The usual frustrations of being a vegetarian in Japan were maintained. Marinading vegetables and tofu in beef or fish stock doesn't really keep them suitable for vegetarians.

We did two nights at the Mahaina in September. Staff were very friendly and accomodating. This is a great place to come with kids. Nice, spacious rooms and they provided a crib (for 3,200/night- a bit expensive). The pools are nice and they have some fountains and games for kids. NIghtly entertainment on the patio as well. We had a great view over the ocean.
This hotel is very close to Emerald beach and the Churaumi aquarium, both highly recommended.
We didn't try any of the food at the hotel, but there is a very good Pizza place close by open only for lunch, Leco. really good and also kid friendly.
Although on the third floor, we felt this large, quiet studio apartment was well-worth the stairs. The building has 6 units; ours had a lovely evening breeze each night. Be sure to get instructions for getting hot water, as it must be activated. The grocery is just a few yards up the street if you want to do your own cooking either inside or out back. A television is provided, but there's too much else to do to waste time on tv. We enjoyed a light dinner at On the Beach Café and lunch at Steakhouse 88. Allow plenty of time to visit Nakijin Gusuku as it is a huge site. We also took the ferry from Motobu Port over to Iejima for a day trip.
