Ishigaki is a tropical paradise, truly one of the most beautiful places in the world. We mistakenly booked here instead of the Intercontinental, but stayed anyway. The rooms are dated, plain and dreary. The pool is what you would expect from a cheap motel beside an interstate highway. Considering they are not beside the ocean, you would think they would make an effort to at least make the pool attractive.
While we were here on vacation, it is hard to get completely away from emails etc, and hooking up to their network was an ENORMOUS pain in the derriere. Completely unnecessary in this day and age and could be remedied with the most minimum of alterations.
Unless you are getting the room comped to your for free, I recommend the Intercontinental or anywhere else but here. Nikko Hotels, if you cant put any more effort in to updating this property, please just give up or let someone else manage it!
