The hotel was marvelously designed with a large heated pool in the center.
The hotel location was a bit inconvenient - it was somewhat far from the major beaches and the town center. We rented bicycles (reservation req'd - just call the front desk in advance) to go around the island. It only took us 2-3 hrs to see the entire island. There really isn't much things to see or do on the island. We stayed at Hoshinoya for two nights and thought it was plenty.
We had dinner and breakfast in our room. The food was very delicious.
I would recommend Hoshinoya Taketomi-jima to my family and friends.
