“Food good and varied; view excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2010

I was entirely satisfied with my stay at Maetakaya. The facilities may be a bit stretched when it is fully occupied but it was peaceful and relaxing during my stay. The food is excellent - Kobayashi san is a good cook and varies the menu. However if you prefer to go out and not eat at fixed times (dinner is early for many Westerners) there are alternatives in the village and in Ishigaki town. I found the owners very welcoming and helpful.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2006

Food was good, quite clean, setting ok but room is extremely small and air cond 100 yens for one hour. But above all, if you are a westerner (europe or us), avoid maetakaya !!! You have to pay in advance (whereas Japenese people don't), and the woman in charge keeps thinking that you will go away and gets intrusive... Well holidays in "paranoia land"... not for me anymore !!!!!

  • Liked — maybe food
  • Disliked — Pay aircond, staff and no value for money
  • Tips/Secrets — Prefer Ishigaki centre (port) for more choice and convinience
