Hotel location is very good. Beach in front of the hotel is beautiful and the nearby Shirahama shrine is very typical. Access to the beach from the hotel is very convenient : changing room, direct access by large stairs and outside hot shower..After, do not expect to find nice restaurants and animated places around the hotel. Its a good hotel with lovely rooms, and nice sea view from each room. Nearby Restaurants are very less, so better eat early dinner as the place turns very dark to walk around. Unless you have a car. Reception lobby is quite outdated, rooms have good interior.
