If your are looking for luxury this is not the place for you. If you just want to get away from the city and relax at a beautiful beach without walking far or driving from the hotel, this is the place for you. Family friendly and the owner/staff were really helpful when making our reservations and throughout our stay. Thank... More

We have just spent our second family holiday at White Beach Hotel. It's fun, it's social and so relaxed. If you want to hang out in the luxury of your room, if you want to have your bed turned down each evening, if you want silver service then you are in the wrong place. if you want to relax with...

I've been coming to White Beach Hotel the last two years now and I've always had a blast. The hotel is a stones throw away from one of the loveliest beaches I've ever been too. The food is excellent, the pizzas are legit, the beer is cold. I feel rejuvenated every time I come even if I leave with a... More

We stay at the White Beach Hotel 3 or 4 times each year. From May through to September. Myself, my wife and two daughters (6 and 7). These are trips the whole family really look forward to. The location is fantastic with just a very short walk to the beautiful beach. The food is wonderful, especially the pizzas and fish... More

We have now stayed at the White Beach hotel at least twice a year for the last three years and highly recommend it. Our children are building great memories every year and are always asking when we are going back next. The accommodation is basic but very clean. The staff are attentive, flexible and great fun. The bar area is... More

I stay at a lot of hotels around Japan and overseas, my partner and I enjoyed the relaxed (freedom) break from city life and enjoyed may... More

Positives: friendly (but not mature) service staff, ok location, nice deck & excellent pizza Negatives: very basic accommodation (room small & musty, no room cleaning or changing of sheets), very noisy at night, slow immature service, relatively expensive The White Beach Hotel gives you youth hostel quality at a 2 star hotel price. If you go with a family (as... More

White Beach may be no frills but when you are with kids, want to be right on the beach, and do not want to spend a fortune, this little hotel is great. The beds and futons are new and comfy and the food is tasty Italian. We went with a huge group of families and White Beach helped us smoothly... More

Firstly, people who have given WBH bad reviews simply don't get Shimoda, don't get the experience and should likely stay elsewhere. I have been going to Shimoda for over 10 years and White Beach is exactly why I return again and again. The hotel is pleasant, clean and friendly. Relaxing by all means with a pace that makes Tokyo feel... More

Great location. Really laid back. Nice and casual. Great pizzas ! But the rooms are tiny and the bathrooms extremely small and old. Very cool staff. One major issue : rooms are not cleaned every day !
