    We had a wonderful stay at Irumoteso. The host is very friendly. She helped us to organize the excursions and her food was excellent. Our room was very large and clean. We would warmly recommend this accommodation.

    We stayed for 5 nights in Irumoteso. - The host (Kiyoko) was the best we ever had. She was very friendly and profesional at the same time. She was very knowledgeable and helped us a lot (car rental, tours, bus and ferry timetables etc..). She even gave us a lift to the port when we left. She also speaks English - Dinners (cooked by Kiyoko) were amazing and absolutely delicious. Very well presented and with a variety of different dishes.We were always looking foward to eat there ! Breakfasts are also good. - The property is on a hill overlooking the sea with a nice garden. Perfect place to relax. The property is very clean and cosy. There is a lot of information displayed ( maps, timetables for buses and ferry etc..). There is a bus stop nearby and plenty of places explore nearby on a bike so car rental is not essential. It is also close to the port. - Our room (tatami) was super big and clean. There was a fridge also and A/C. Matress and pillows very comfortable. - We rented the bikes for a day and it was a very nice experience . In conclusion we loved this place!! Thanks for hosting us Kiyoko-san.

    Everything perfect!!

    The building is in the style of a traditional Japanese Ryokan and Kioko-san is incredibly friendly, knowing all the best places to go given a certain weather. Thanks to her we got to see coral on the first day, though we arrived at 16:00 and a sea turtle the second day. They also have their own fruit patches with bananas and pineapples that is served at breakfast.

    Nothing to dislike about it.
