It is a Top 250 onsen no doubt because it is so luxurious and spacious. The rooms are massively big. Just go for the smallest and that is big enough. It is just next to the marine world and they offer hotel guests half price tickets. The place is just mins from kinosaki. The dinner is fantastic! But the price I paid is not cheap for such a stay. Cospa wise not high.

Pros 1. Fantastic onsen - clean , plush and with a view to die for 2. Gorgeous setting on a cliff overlooking the sea 3. Good Japanese style rooms - very large by Japanese standards. Lobby feels a bit old and grubby but once you get to the room it feels very homely. 4. Nice cosy in house Japanese restaurant 5. Good aquarium next door - handy if you need to entertain kids Cons 1. Out of town - they run a few shuttles to the town during the day. However we went out for an early dinner and it was a bit of a challenge finding a taxi to get back to the hotel. Cab ride to the town and back is not cheap. 2. Breakfast shuts at 9am which is a bit early if you want to have a late start Overall definitely worth it

The location is the feature unparalleled in this big vacation hotel with considerable scale. The hotel is right on the cliff by the Sea of Japanese. Looking out from the hotel is a gorgeous ocean view. At afternoon, I sat in the spacious and tall lobby with a cup of coffee and enjoyed the beautiful sunset. The scene was exactly like the name of the hotel, Golden Wave. This wonderful experience was already worth the charge. The hotel room was huge and comfortable. The outdoor spa was right by the sea. It was enjoyable to indulge in both the spa and the sea view at the same time. However, one disadvantage was the noise from the neighboring Marine Park. There was a big gift shop with a variety of selections in the hotel. Although the shop lacked high-end stuff, one could indeed pick up lots of souvenirs here to fill up one's suitcase, too. Their meal was about average. We had Mastuba crab set for dinner, which was prepared in an ordinary but not spectacular way. Upon the recommendation of the restaurant’s website, we ordered an extra dish of steamed Wagyu(黒毛和牛の蒸シャブ), yet it was overcooked and disappointing. Furthermore, the staff was attentive. Before visiting, I contacted the Ryokan via email arranging details, and they were responsive and helpful. All in all, Kinparo is a pleasant choice for family vacations. 這家大型渡假飯店最獨特的優點是它的位置──就位於緊臨日本海的崖邊。從旅館望出去就是美麗海景。傍晚時光,坐在它高挑寬敞的咖啡廰,看著美好夕陽落日。這般景緻就像旅館的名字「金波」。如此美妙經驗就已值回房價。 它的房非常大而舒適。在位於崖邊的戶外湯,邊泡湯邊看海景是一大享受。但有一個缺點是泡湯時會聽到旁邊大型水族公園吵雜的聲音。 它有一個很大的売店,商品種類非常多,雖然沒有很高級的紀念品,但足夠讓你挑滿箱的土產伴手禮。 它的餐點普通,我們的晚餐是以松葉蟹為主的會席,但料理手法沒有太令人驚艷。我們加點了一道他們網站推薦的蒸和牛( 黒毛和牛の蒸シャブ),有點失望,肉蒸得太老。 此外,他們員工服務態度非常好,造訪前透過電郵溝通細節安排,都獲得滿意而迅速的回覆。 整體而言,這是一個適合全家旅遊住的旅館。

I'm thankful for your review. The scenery our hotel has and how to enjoy oneself at the lobby lounge were expressed to your comment very accurately, and I thought it was very wonderful. The a lot of praise and comment you say are very helpful for us. It's regrettable that our dish didn't add it to your expectation, but we'd like to improve that better. Thank you very much really.

First off, the pictures you see of this hotel doesn't lie. The views are absolutely stunning. That alone made it worth it for me. Gazing at the sea from my room while sipping on the provided green tea was a very soothing experience. Service is also very good and attentive, which is what you would expect given the high price. Facilities-wise, it's not a new building, and it shows. Some things like tables and such look quite worn out. And there's no free Wifi, so be prepared for that. The multi-course dinner was very good, but also very pricey. The breakfast buffet was very average though. It's about a 10 minute car ride from Kinosaki station, but a complementary shuttle service is provided. Honestly, Kinosaki is supposed to be famous for it's 7 onsens. I hit 5 of the 7 public bath houses before I left, and I was left quite unimpressed. They were pretty bland, and the outdoor onsen this hotel offered with an ocean view was far better in my experience. And if you have time to kill, Kinosaki Marine World is literally next door, so you can always watch some seals perform some neat tricks (I was provided a voucher upon checking in). Overall, a superb stay. High recommended.
