“Nice place but overprice for backpackers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012 via mobile

This is a nice place to stay at, the rooms are pretty small but big enough. The beds are really compty and the internet wifi worked in the room aswell. But I don't think that you get what you pay for. The showers and the kitchen are not nice at all, very dirty and ugly. The location is pretty good, close to "town" and close to the small beach in town. If you have the possibility to rent a car, you really should. By bike you can get to one more beach, maybe 5 km away :) If you want another place to stay at, Hidamari guesthouse is good, it's cheaper and cleaner. You will easy find some places just by walking around in town:)

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2010

We have chosen this hotel because of its location (direct sea-shore on Ifu beach). The location is pretty much ok, but the hotel and the beach itself is much under our expectations. This hotel was the most expensive one during our 3-week holiday spent in Japan but the value is under the average.

Pros: - nice location (right on the beach, close to facilities)
- many restaurants in the nearby and also grocery store
- excellent ocean view
- wide range of sport facilities

Cons: - old stylish rooms, the whole building needs serious refurbishment
- pools are not clean enough
- the beach is in a relatively bad condition, it is full of dead coral parts so you'd better wear sea-shoes (moreover it would be pretty easy to collect these sharp corals and other things from the sea day by day but the Okinawa people do not care too much about their environment)
- dinner is expensive within the hotel so it is recommended to go out in the evenings
- the staff usually does not speak English (especially in the sport center)

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2008

This hotel has the best location on Kumejima, it is right on Eef Beach. The inside of the hotel has a minimalist designer style, similar to some upmarket hotels in Miami (Shore Club Miami Beach). The rooms are fairly basic, but it is really all about the view and location. There are two pools and literally only a few steps to Eef beach. If you want to get around and explore the island, a hire car is a must (try and book one in advance to arriving on the island). However, if you want to just chill out, this is the best hotel on the island to do just that.
