“Not exactly luxury but great stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

Great choice if you don't want to spend $300/night for one of the more luxurious resorts (ClubMed, ANA). Lots of indoor/outdoor amenties (pools, baths, saunas, spa, restaurants). Staff is SUPER nice and helpful. When our luggage didn't arrive on time a female staff member even offered to lend me a bathing suit! No wifi in rooms but when they saw we were disappointed about that they lent us a wifi router. Yakiniku restaurant is great, even for vegetarians! $800 for a huge plate of raw veggies to grill.

Cons:
No beach and boardwalk along water has lots of garbage.
Beds are SUPER hard.
No wifi in rooms.
Dining options are open intermittently (1 for bfast, 1 for lunch, 2 for dinner).
Location is 10 min drive from town ($10 taxi one way) and 30 min from Kabira ($35 taxi one way!). Gets expensive if you don't have a car.

TIPS:
Get an international license before you go and rent a car.
If you don't rent a car take the bus! No one at the hotel recommended the bus but when we took it anyway and it was GREAT! $600 to Kabira one way and you can buy a pass for $10 for 5 days. The trip is just as quick as a taxi. The schedule is intermittent but if you get stuck you can always wait at another hotel restaurant or cafe or take a taxi back, better than taxi both ways.
If you're taking the ferry, schedule a FREE pick up at hotel through Anei Kanko. You have to buy ticket at hotel tour desk first.
Walk down the street to Armoco Italian restaurant, delicious and inexpensive!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2010

We decided to take the plunge and book Grandvrio through Japanican internet site and have no complaints. It's a modern, clean hotel, with a great steak restaurant (Ishigaki beef is a delicacy that's wonderful) as well as a traditional Japanese restaurant. They always had at least 1 English speaker on duty and we were always able to get help for what we need. Room was very good, albeit bed was a bit hard! Umicoza diving picked us up each day and took around 20 mins to get to the shop and then 5 mins to the water - so can really enjoy the Manta rays!
