I was surprised at the size of the rooms, they were very spacious, clean and even had a kitchen, which is ideal for families who are traveling with young children and are afraid to eat out. There is even a supermarket nearby, so you don't need to worry about food. My wife was especially happy with the breakfast, as there... More

I recently staying at this property for three nights whilst in Okinawa on holiday. We opted to stay here because hotels directly on the beach are more expense (with rooms/facilitates that are not as nice) or farther away from all the action. You can always drive to the beach and, more often than not, the only price you will pay... More

Stayed here for 5 days during our two week Okinawan vacation. Very nice hotel. Not a resort. Rooms are apartment style with "kitchen" and separate bedrooms. Feels like a nice cozy Japanese apartment. Only four years old, so our room was still in pretty good shape. All rooms face the ocean, which is nice in the provided table and chairs... More

Was in Okinawa for the first time to visit family and this hotel was recommended. It was pleasant, quiet and clean. The view was the real highlight of the place, absolutely fantastic - definitely got my zen going.

We were in Okinawa for a brief layover and wanted to spend one night by the ocean; without renting a car, most of the beach resorts are difficult to get to, which is why we choose this hotel. It's a 30-minute drive from the airport, and there's a shuttle bus available. The hotel is not ON the beach but all... More

This is a beautiful place and the staff are friendly. However, several motorcyclists purposefully rev their high-pitched engines at the light at night. They do this often and very intentionally It is a constant harassment. It does not matter if you are in the bedroom or living room-being awakened several nights a week (1 Am-2Am two nights ago) by someone... More

My wife and I stayed in Moon Ocean Ginowan for one night. It is a condominium style with great home feel. The staff in the reception area is polite and helpful, check-in process is very smooth. Every room there has a sea view, you can enjoy a bath in front of the big window. The room is spacious and tidy... More

Second time staying here. The staff is very friendly and the whole place is clean and beautiful. Specials for stays over 3 days like free cocktails in restaurant. Pool, laundry, ocean breeze. FYI. Don't sleep in living room. Motorcycles rev motors late night to wake you. There are 3 restaurants right outside the entrance. The place on bottom left has... More

I am here long term working and unfortunately the service isn't always good. The food is alright at the restaurant but not excellent, the hotel is pretty but the cleaning ladies come when they want and not regularly as promised, the view from the balcony is beautiful but the noise from the street is loud and sometimes keeps me up...
