I went to Okinawa to visit my fiance who is in the Marines. It was our first time 'traveling overseas,' as he had spent little time off base and I had never been out of the country. We initially were to stay in the hotel for 3 nights, but extended out stay to 5 because we enjoyed it so much. The restaurant was wonderful, we ate there 3 nights and the lounge was great too (good drink specials). There isn't a lot to do in the area immediately around the hotel which was disappointing, but the view from the balcony is gorgeous. There is an hotel shuttle to the Naha airport and two nearby beaches, we took the shuttle to the beach. We weren't impressed by this particular beach, however it was cool to have transportation. The staff spoke enough English for us to work with and they were extremely friendly and helpful. The room was very nice, we made sure to have a queen sized bed. I made tea in the room every morning and drank it on the balcony, it was wonderful. They have great military rates...
Online hotel description mentioned rooms with ocean views. I misunderstood that to imply that this is a waterfront hotel. IT IS NOT. It is perched up on a hill and has a view of the Pacific Ocean from perhaps a mile away, or more. Very disappointed because I expected beach-front access. Don't make the same mistake. Otherwise, it is an upscale hotel in terms of service and amenities.
