2/10 Poor

We decided to spend the last two nights of our trip at this hotel...what a mistake. We had been staying in a lovely house, so when we saw the room we were very disappointed. It was like a prefab building in a car park, the noise when people were parking their cars, was right outside the room...until late at night. The room is small, very basic and looks out onto waste land.The worst part was the last night when the guests in the room next door were so noisy we called the front desk...but nothing really changed. It carried on late into the night and we couldn't sleep. Overall, we nearly just walked out but as it is was New Year we weren't sure on getting somewhere else. We won't stay there again...avoid especially the Marin rooms.

Our kids loved the huge pool and poolside area. The breakfast buffet was also really good. Our first impression when we pulled into the hotel was that it was old and needed some paint and renovations but our opinion was changed by the great pool, location and helpful staff

8/10 Very good

We liked the hotel, but it really came into its own when a typhoon cancelled our flight to Okinawa and we had to stay an extra day. The staff helped us change our local car rental and were helpful in many small but so-appreciated ways. The buffet breakfast and the a la carte dinner menu (with an English-language menu) were always good, and tables and chairs in the main building meant we could both work on our laptops the day the storm kept us from going anywhere. We have no Japanese and only one staff member spoke significant English but we all managed to understand what was going on with regard to storm-related changes. They made what could have been a difficult time very easy.

A cosy hotel with friendly staff
The hotel is close to the beach and it has a pool and a jacuzzi. The staff were super friendly and the food was delicious. Apart from the wi-fi (which is OK in the lobby but really slow in the rooms), everything was above expectations. I definitely recommend this hotel!

Remote hotel but worth it
Need to be refurbished (outdoor paint, pool floor, bathroom) But otherwise nice staff (can speak English), wonderful breakfast. Dinner is also OK. Small beach in front of the hotel Can also enjoy the beach close to Native Sea hotel (1.7 km). Nice restaurant there also ("Forest")

朝食も、やはり口コミどうりパンが焼きたてでめちゃくちゃ美味しかったです。朝カレーの好きな人は、カレーも美味しく最高でした。ホテルルームは、プレハブの長屋タイプでしたが、エアコンの調子悪く暖房の効きが悪かったです。お水はミネラルウォーターをいかただかなくても、水道水がとても美味しかった。 ドリンクボトルさえあれば良いと思います。 お水が欲しい時は、マツキヨとかローカルで、2リットル41円ボトルをオススメします。 また、夏に再訪したいと思います。 とても快適なホテルでした。
