“Nice Hotel, nice beach / 很棒的飯店、很棒的海灘”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

優點 / Advantage :
1.
飯店其實不算非常新,但是整理的非常乾淨。
This hotel wasn't quite new, but very clean, just like most japan hotel.

2.
強烈建議住海景房,視野很不錯!
Recommend to book a room with ocean view. Nice view brings nice mood !

3.
有一大片自己的漂亮海灘
A nice private beach.

4.
飯店設施非常豐富,不管是各式餐廳、Spa、室內外游泳池、Bar、商店街等。即使是紀念品或是沖繩名產都能買到。
You can find any thing here, several kinds of restaurants, Spa, Indoor outdoor swimming pool, bar, shops. You can find lots of Okinawa souvenir and specialty here.

5.
餐廳就在海灘旁邊,運氣好或早點起床,可以做在窗邊、甚至天氣好還可以坐在外面,看著美麗的海景吃早餐。
Restaurants located by the beach. If you are lucky, you can get a table by the window, even a outdoor seat, and eat breakfast with nice sea view :)

6.
對街有停車場,但是一天要五百日圓,如果免費或提供停車服務就更好了。
Parking space available (across the street), but not free (500 yen/day). It will be better to be free, and offer parking service (at least in bad weather).

7.
由於飯店設施豐富,就算是沒開車,應該也很適合到這邊悠閒的晃個幾天。如果要到知名景點去玩,可以參加飯店的旅行團,或者當天直接跟派駐在飯店內的租車公司租車即可。
There are many activities and abundant facilities in hotel. So, It will be fine, even not to rent a car. Just relax here. If you want to visit somewhere (e.g. Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium), just join the tour in Hotel, or rent a car in hotel.


缺點 / Disadvantage :
1.
上次入住的房間,浴缸鬆動。
I got a loose bathtub last time.

2.
停車場不是免費
The parking space is not free.

3.
會講日語外語言的服務生非常少,即使你是打翻譯協助的分機。
There's only few waiter speak english. Even you call the translation service line.

Room Tip: 才差一點錢,直接訂海景房吧,真的值得! It's worth ! Just book the ocean view room. 早點起床 (或起的巧?),早餐配海景真的很棒! Wak...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

We chose a wrong time to visit Okinawa, when the typhoon struck. When we reach Rizzan beach resort, it was already stormy. We were stuck in the resort.

The first impression of the resort is that it is huge (north south wings) with plenty of rooms. However it looked dated. We were given metal room keys (wow) and a huge but minimalistic room.

We decided to walk around since we were stuck. We realised there are actually 4 restaurants, massage and spa, arcade/games room, convenient store, kids room, souvenir stores all in the resort. The shops have very good assortment of products, not some makeshift stores. The indoor pool was something unusual, as most beach resort only have outdoor pools. Thanks to the indoor pool, we are still able to do a swim.

Unfortunately there is no wifi in the room, however, we bought a data sim card which cost about USD$50 for our own wifi.

It is nice to self drive in Okinawa but if you are stuck in a storm like me, this resort is definitely a good choice to hide away from the bustling city life.

Room Tip: it is good to buy a data sim card when you are in Okinawa. It helped me with my own smart phone GPS...

Stayed here for 2 nights in a standard room with 2 beds + 1 add-on bed. Only 1 key (a real to goodness metal key) was given despite us having 3 pax and trying to request for an extra key. Resort and room were dated and had definitely seen better days. Room had great views of ocean front and the very clean private beach. There's also a wedding chapel nearby for those planning something special. No free wifi in room - have to sit in their lobby (Level 1 and Level 2) to use it. Also, you had to pay to use their onsen baths, price varies according to time of visit. Food (tried both breakfast and dinner) available in various restaurants, buffet style. Big variety of food. food quality acceptable (but nothing to write home about). Multiple souvenir stores and one convenience store for you to buy something back for the folks at home.

Room Tip: opt for ocean view, definitely.

Every room has a sea view and you pay for it although not as much as nearby resorts. The area is purpose-built and felt a bit run-down.The hotel is probably one of the better ones in the area but a few things annoyed me such as: no wifi in bedroom (first time in about 10 years), opening hours on the hotel flyers did not correspond to actual opening times.

Pros - large oceanfront room with 3 separate beds + 1 pullout. Expansive breakfast buffets included in our room price. Indoor pool and beautiful outdoor pool. Reasonably priced relative to other similar properties in the area.

Cons - isolated (very little else within walking distance), parking lot is across the street.

This is hotel is typical of the Okinawan hotels that cater to mainland Japanese. The difference between it and others is that it does most things right. There are 6 restaurants, they give you a brochure that lists the times each is open. (nice) downside is that each has different hours so you have to plan which place you want to eat at. (not so nice). It always has at least one restaurant with a buffet open. Like most Okinawan buffets, the food is not delicious (Think Golden Buffet), the difference from a lot of the other hotels is that most of the buffet food is acutally decent instead of awful, and several dishes appeal to a western palate if you have ODed on local fare. It is made for huge numbers of tourists, so it is impersonal, but the staff is friendly and polite, and tries hard to be accomdating. Most do not speak much English, but in a pinch they will find someone who does. The one thing to keep in mind is the way these hotels do business, most everything is an add on. Parking will cost you. Towels for the pool may cost you, or they may give you a voucher as part of your room rate. Use of the Beach is free, white sand and netted, nice -but use of the beach area with cool inflated things for kids and adults to climb on will cost you. (10 bucks a person). They gave us coupons for free breakfast, but you had to eat at the restaurants that served Japanese fair. Want a western style breakfast, cha-ching not free, you must go to one of the other restaurants, and have a lunch type meal (spaghetti carbonara for breakfast). Or you can wait until noon; from noon to 4 there is a desert bar with a make your own pancakes section. They make sure greedy tourists can't get more than their money's worth by putting miniscule portions of each topping out - example a bowl of chocolate chips had maybe 12 chips in it. The area is one of the nicest in Okinawa for beaches and has a lot of nice hotels. The downside is the hotels all have the same kind of restaurants too much competition for the locals so there are not many outside restaurants. The Rizzan has several gift shops to tempt you with a better than average selection of foods and island made trinkets. As for the room, ours was great, we travel with 2 teens, and rooms that sleep 4 are hard to come by in Asia, harder still if they won't share a bed. The Rizzan had a great room with 4 twin beds on the tenth floor with breathtaking views a balcony along its length, so long that it required 2 sliding glass doors and still had room for more glass- one wall is floor to ceiling windows. There is a mixture of outlet styles for electronics, and ample space to walk around. It was immaculate. Only knock is after dark, the only lights are lamps- like so many other hotels conserving energy costs around the world. It is too dark to read and TV is all in Japanese, so bring a board game, and play hard on the beach so you will sleep early. We will go back.

Room Tip: Check for room rates on multiple sites, They are not consistant from one to another and great bargai...

Brilliant location, large rooms, no WIFI, several restarants reasonably priced - but key ones close arbitrarily even at peak demand. Other services also withdrawn arbitrarily like internet in the lobby. Please note there are Japanese and English prices with different booking systems making it very expensive for this level of service - the place is at best 4-star. Worst thing is constant (hotel owned) jet skis making considerable noise pollution all day and driving away any hope of wildlife.

Room Tip: definately go for sea facing higher up
