The Shiraraso Grand was probably the grand dame of Shirahama beach, with its outdoor hot spring bath located almost on the beach itself. You risk exposing yourself to beach goers if you do not keep below the water line past a certain point. Food is excellent, and service is really good. However, as with most old-style hotels in Japan, little... More

We stay here to celebrate our anniversary and take hotel package with dinner: Kumano beef course. The food is great, kumano beef texture is melting in mouth and the seafood are fresh. They have private family bath (2 hour with fee around 1.200 yen, better book in advance) and the onsen facility (there is outdoor onsen that facing the shirahama... More

I travelled with my husband and two small kids (2 years and 4 years old). The room rate was about US$200, but I need to pay extra charge for my kids, US$40 each. Hence, total charged US$260/night (no meal included). But the room was very very small. I accepted such size if staying in Tokyo downtown. Definitely not in onsen... More

This hotel has a perfect location on the beach, close to restaurants and a grocerie store open 24h. The outdoor pool is nice but not heated, the onsen is very nice. We had Breakfast included which was nice, but first two mornings were traditional japaneese and the third morning it was more western. Our children did not enjoy the food... More

The room is in traditional Japanese-style with a tatami area, it is clean and huge. Our room can enjoy the sea view and seashore from Shirahama beach. The onsen is good. Especially the one at the 2nd floor outdoor, we can enjoy onsen with sea view. The staff was very nice and helpful. Because when we check in, they saw... More

This is the second time that my wife and I have stayed at this hotel and we've had a good experience on both occasions. Some reviewers have commented on rude staff but I have to say that I've found the opposite to be the case. Sure the reception staff (all staff) only speak limited English but then what do you...

Pity they had no non-smoking rooms which is OK but you could smell the smoke when other people smoked in the corridor. Despite this, near to bus stop, beach and restaurants (fisherman's wharf is about 15 mins walk) Great service getting the correct size yugata. Japanese breakfast was average. Lovely onsen - try the jacuzzi.

Stay three days two nights here with lovely traditional Japanese-style room, it's big, clean, good sea view and good room services. We also spent time in its hot spring and dinner here with good food and services. We find the only drawback is it was a bit expensive as compared to its standard, perhaps it is a peak season for...
