The hotel was a lot nicer than I read from the reviews. The building and resort is 20 years old or so, so it's not some brand new building where everything is in perfect condition.
Being right on the beach was very nice. We easy could go swimming in the ocean and if you want you can walk a long the beach a ways away from the resort where it's nice and quite!
I went with a native Japanese friend, so it was easy to do things. I would say it's pretty difficult if people don't know how to speak any Japanese because the staff don't speak very well English. There are foreigners that work there that are not Japanese who can speak English though.
Getting there is a pain. You can take the bus, but you have to make sure you catch it at the right time. Once you're there, there isn't much around the place, so you kind of have to stay on the resort.
I would recommend getting the breakfast included with the room. The Japanese breakfast wasn't so good, and I'm not saying that because I'm a foreigner, but even my Japanese friend said he didn't like it. Go with the "Western" choice, which still has Japanese food in the morning.
Finally, try the "onsen" or spa! It's nice because it's so Japanese where you have to take your clothes off and relax in the spa. It was one of my favorite parts. Most importantly, try to have fun!
"Great place to recover from jetlag. All you need."
Room was spacious, staff were helpful, beach was beautiful and the pool is suitable for all ages (and heights). Not much information in English and some problems with internet, really good place for families.
50 characters does not begin to describe the experience at this resort. It is by far the best place I have ever stayed out of 1000's of hotels. Everything was perfect, the staff was over joyed to meet your every need and When I expressed this to the hotel manager be presented me with an expensive set of chop sticks simply to show his appreciation with nobody around to see but only to show his true gratitude. If I traveled to Okinawa every year I would stay at the same resort. It is absolutely 5 stars in every respect and every staff member is so very kind and accommodating.
