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

This was not a good hotel. Pizzas are great and the staff was most helpful however it is a very dirty and almost comical how the establishment is run. Very surprising to find this hotel in Japan next to such a lovely beach. It could be so lovely if they tried cleaning and updating the decor.

Location can't be beat and friendly customer service. Staff are very accommodating. Definitely my number one recommendation for staying right on Shimoda beach. Relaxed atmosphere and good food options as well.

Probably the best spot to stay in Shimoda area. This is a great beach hotel with really friendly staff. We have a great time with our two kids. We all just loved it. Great restaurant with the best pizzas in town (but a little expensive I thought).
