Perfect location if you are going to spend your day at Churaumi Aquarium before or after your stay as it is just situated next to the Aquarium and they have a private entrance access.

All rooms have sea view though interior decoration is a bit dated but acceptable. Breakfast are generous in buffet style and easy to get a table.

There is a nice Japanese local restaurant nearby with less than 3 minutes drive and you could enjoy the sea view dinner there.

Reception staff are nice and give us free wi-fi adaptor to fit in the room without any additional charge. However, they could not speak English at all. I called the hotel to notify my flight delay and would arrive the hotel towards 7 p.m. but the staff could not handle my call at all as she cannot speak English at all. She only manage to ask me to leave my number and call back the next day which is useless. I believed she was nervous and hanged down my phone for 2 times until she grab a hotel guest whom could speak English and asked her to speak to me and translate back to her. It is ridiclous somehow for a 4 star tourist hotel. I have made this complaint to the hotel and their general manager come back to me and apologize after 4 weeks.

Room Tip: All rooms have sea view.

I arrived at this hotel late in the night,but staff's service was very nice.
My kids and I enjoyed breakfast because they served watermelon which I couldn't see in other hotel.

You can go Churaumi Aquarium and beautiful beach which called "Emerald beach" soon.

After that,our family went to Kourijima island accross the long nice view bridge.
It's not far to go there from this hotel.
You can swim at the beach there.
This beach was beautiful,too.

If you are interested in Okinawa culture,you can enjoy to see traditional okinawa house
on the way there.

Very close to aquarium. It is literally a two minute walk to the front gate which was wonderful considering the fact that it was mid summer and very hot. Staff were very obliging but they spoke very little English. The bathroom had mould in some corners which really needed some bleach but that was the only issue with the rooms although they did smell a bit musty at times. The hotel presents very well from the front but the back end of the resort is looking very much in need of a good scrub and a paint. This hotel is ripe for some renovations as the inside is dated too. As there seems to be a new building going up next door that is likely a hotel of some kind I think that the owners will need to do an upgrade sooner rather than later. We were the only English speaking tourists in the resort at the time we were staying so I wasn't surprised that even the Ocean Café (the only restaurant in the resort) didn't really cater to English speaking tourists. The menu was all in Japanese and only one staff member had any English up her sleeve. The saving grace was really that it was cheap to stay, close to the aquarium and had an amazing position by the sea with a passable pool(no deep end) to swim in when the temperature rises.

Room Tip: They all face the sea so no difference which one you pick.

The front desk staff was very friendly.
The room was big and with sea view. Sunset was very beautiful.
There is plenty of carpark space and parking was free.
The location is good, just walkable distance from the aquarium.
We ran along the coast in one morning and loved the quietness and peacefulness there so much.

The early bird price was very attractive, just 20600 yen for 2 nights with 2 aquarium tickets and one day free breakfast included.

Room Tip: Very good experience to stay here.

Clean and simple hotel with ample standard amenities to keep you comfortable. The room is a bit bland but pretty spacious. Wish they had a least one or two English channels on TV though (all channels were in Japanese). Breakfast was okay but was not impressed with dinner (a la carte).

The hotel is away from town / city area. To get around, it's best to rent a car because public transport is not great and taxis are expensive. The nearest town area for shopping, etc is about 40 minutes away (Nago) and Naha (capital city of Okinawa) is about 2 hours drive away! If you want to visit Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium / Ocean Expo Park, this is a good place to stay as entrance to the aquarium is just next door.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with ocean view on higher floor
