Yes, the place is overall a bit too expensive, yes the rooms are not the cleanest, yes they forget about some amenities like toothbrushes & conditioner and yes - no air conditioning in the rooms. BUT: this is a beach hotel! You pay for staying directly at the beach during the season! The (western-style) food is AMAZING! Coffee & Cocktails... More

We just returned from a three-day, two-night visit to the White Beach Hotel and really enjoyed our stay. As other reviewers have indicated, the hotel is located right across the road from Ohama Beach (quite literally a 30-second walk). Ohama Beach is really nice and has an added feature for travelers with small children: the beach has a large tide... More

This place has been changed chefs several times, but this season the food is the worst. Pizza, fish, meat - you name it, stale taste and just not good, comparing to the quality you you get used to in this country. However, the prices are as if the food is at its best - 2.200 Yen for ham and ruccola... More

It's a easy going hotel, with good western food. Children can sleep with parents on futon within the the same room for the same price. Bed is large and comfortable. Rooms in a good condition and the staff takes care about you and is very helpful. They have a free car park and the beach area is really amazing beautiful... More

Had a great overnight at White Beach - very ex-pat friendly - western style menu and rooms - Good A/C and great staff that was very accommodating. Beach is right across the street and a great way to get away from the City for a weekend in the summer. Recommend and will go back too!

We've just spent a week at White Beach Hotel, our 3rd year in a row staying here. The location of this hotel is sublime, directly over the road from Ohama Beach, the best beach we've found in Japan. It's a really nice, wide, sandy (not rocky) swimming beach patrolled by surf life savers from 9am - 5pm and, when the... More

We visited this hotel on a bank holiday weekend. For the price we would expect something a bit better! The rooms were very basic, no tea/coffee facilities, no tv, one lamp, one chair, small bathroom, double bed. The room was clean though which was good. The young wait on staff were very pleasant and cheerful. The big chap behind the... More

We just spent 4 nights here and enjoyed how close it was to the beach and how comfortable the rooms are. Crisp white sheets and feather pillows, aaahhhhh. The food and drinks are a bit pricey but it's a really great place and I really recommend it highly

The last review here is spot-on. We are very fond of this place as the staff were so friendly, the cocktails and chococello are great (I drank a lot of caipirinhas) and it is 30 seconds walk from a gorgeous beach. It is a 5-6km walk into "town" but I don't think you're missing much as it was pretty dead... More

My wife and toddler and I spent several days at White Beach Hotel. The reviews seem spot on, and you should read closely to determine what is most important for you. The hotel has a premo location meters from the beach, but it's not really beach front - there's a road in between the beach and hotel. The hotel itself... More
