Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed for six nights on a family vacation with a child less than 2 years old. The ocean views from our 5th floor room were outstanding. The summer clouds in the sky reflected the sunset, to make for some of the most beautiful I've ever seen. The ocean swimming area is protected with a net to keep out dangerous aquatic life. The sea water is generally calm enough to let the little one swim with floaties, and the pool was clean and easily accessible.
The room itself was nice, not the greatest shower/ bathroom but good for the price and area.

The breakfast was decent but the dinner, while still served in the same cafeteria area was fantastic. Extremely high quality, and the sunset view was included.

All in all it was an excellent stay. I'll review the marine house tours and renting area separately, because that wasn't nearly as good, but the hotel itself was just great (for it's price, and what it offers).

With its location right on the beautiful Sukuji Beach on the island's west coast, Ishigaki Seaside Hotel is a great choice for the perfect beachside retreat.

The rooms are spacious and well-appointed with a beautiful view of the water, which changes dramatically throughout the day with the tides.

There are beach loungers, complimentary toiletries, reliable wifi, a vending machine for drinks, a washing machine, and a screen displaying the island's flight departures.

Unfortunately, the food is far too expensive. The hotel takes advantage of its remote location and unreasonably hikes up prices. However, it's possible to walk a couple of kilometers and shop in the nearest town. We had a car, so we drove to Ishigaki City and bought sushi, snacks, beer, and plenty of fresh fruit to bring back to the room.

What we bought for 1 day for 2 people (and we had some really delicious treats) wouldn't even cover the cost of one evening meal for one person at the hotel.

This seems to be a very popular hotel with Japanese locals (if we focus only on Japanese hotels and ignore Club Med, ANA etc). The sandy beach (Sujiki beach) is extremely calm, long and shallow which makes it a good place for kids and families. Even in December, we saw people coming back on hotel diving boats from diving trips.

The room was big with 2 single beds and a lounging area. Toilet was separate from the sink area and shower area. Housekeeping was prompt.

It is clearly an old hotel but it is very well maintained and potentially refurbished in the past few years. Parking is free. We definitely enjoyed our stay here.

We had an incredible holiday with my girlfriend. When we first arrived at the hotel, the staff at the reception welcomed us incredibly. It is a very beautiful hotel with a very beautiful nature and location. I cannot remember the names of the restaurant staff, but a female staff seated us at the most beautiful table and said welcome with a beautiful smile. This made me happy. It made me happy. I want to thank that lady in the restaurant.

The hotel and the rooms look much better than in the pictures. The lobby and restaurant have a nice charm to them, and the rooms have been refurbished, making the very nice to sleep in. We had a beautiful view of the sea which made watching the sunset an amazing experience. The food was nice and the views from the restaurant were also nice.
The staff was very friendly and actually cared about your requests, trying there best to help you. The rooms were also fairly priced.
The only downside is that you’re pretty far from the airport and buses don’t come very often (although it’s great that they come right to the front of the hotel).

I stayed at the Ishigaki Seaside Hotel for two nights in October 2013. The best (and only) thing going for the hotel are the views. The hotel is situated in perhaps the most beautiful imaginable location at the edge of a bay with mountains on both sides and water views straight ahead. All rooms in the main building have unobstructed views except two (more on that later). I've stayed at beach resorts in Florida, Mexico, Hawaii, and the Caribbean and it's without exaggeration that I say that the setting of this hotel is gorgeous.

The developers picked a great spot for the hotel. However, after selecting the land, just about everything else they did was a low budget fail.

The hotel appears to have tons of land between the building and the street, but they've just let it become overgrown. Perhaps they're trying to make it look "natural", but no, it just looks like an undeveloped lot of land. The sign is a simple painted plywood looking sign and the long driveway is too narrow for two way traffic, with overgrown brush scraping the sides of your rental car all the time.

The lobby is large and empty. The front desk was friendly and helpful (or so it seemed). Despite the hotel being empty (it was a Thursday in the off-season) the hotel said we couldn't check in until after 2:00pm (I always have this problem in Japanese hotels, yet never do in hotels from other countries). We decided to use the hotels beach while we waited (the pool was available, too, but is very small).

When the rooms were ready, we found them to be well laid out in size and design. Unlike most small Japanese hotel rooms, these are quite spacious with two beds, a desk, TV, sofabed, table, chair, shower room with deep bathing tub, and a separate toilet room. However, like most Japanese hotels, the room was very dated and well-worn with carpet stains, gouges in the wallpaper, and torn fabric on the seats). The ceiling vents in the bathrooms and the AC unit were filthy.

One wall had large sliding glass doors leading to a large balcony with the most spectacular water and mountain view (we had room 411). Unfortunately, the balconies have no furniture so you can't really enjoy the space except to stand and look.

We were traveling with a friend who had the adjoining room (410). Her room had amazing air-conditioning that left the room dry and cool (she even turned the AC off for a while). Our room, meanwhile, was humid and hot despite the air-conditioning being on. We adjusted the thermostat to the lowest temperature of 16 degrees (61 degrees) but the room would get no warmer than 27 degrees (81 degrees).

We called the front desk to tell them and they sent up a representative who played with the controls and said "it's working now." We stood under the blower to find warm air blowing and politely said that it's still not cooling . She then looked at the control and said "maximum cooling possible." We told her the room next door where our friend was staying was cool and dry and brought her over to feel the noticeable difference. She said to give it time to cool and left.

We gave it time and it got no cooler (or dryer). As we left for dinner we went to the front desk to request a different room. They said they would look into it and let us know when we got back.

After dinner, we returned and they changed our room...to one of the two rooms with the worst possible view on the property, room 401). It has a building in front of it that blocks the ocean view. You can still see the mountains and some water if you look to the left or the right...but if you looks straight out you see the wall and roof line of the building. The only room with a worse view would be the one below it (301).

However, as a sacrifice for comfortable sleeping temperatures, we figured we could deal with the lost view.

Alas, the air-conditioning STILL didn't cool well. We couldn't get the room to go below 25 celsius (27 fahrenheit). Again, we asked the front desk if they could look into it and they kept saying "yes, of course" but we never saw them in our room again for the rest of the trip. We did, however, see them working on the air-conditioning in our old room and three other rooms on our floor over the next two days so ours doesn't appear to be an isolated issue. The unit in our friend's room was noticeably newer so I suspect the hotel is just waiting for older units to die before replacing them.

So, we lost our view and our climate control. Super.

The beach was nice. You'll want to wear swim shoes because there is coral everywhere (it's not the softest sand, either). Most of the island's beaches are mostly coral so you'll find this everywhere. The pool area was tiny so we didn't even bother using it. There's a restaurant that appears to open for dinner only, but we opted to explore other areas.

Oh, another problem with this hotel...there is no internet. Now, I'm not talking there isn't wifi. I mean there is no wired internet, either. In 2013, I find this shocking. I'm sure management will use the excuse that this is a place to relax and escape the outside world, but that's a crock of bull. If customer satisfaction was so important, the rooms would be updated, the air-conditioning would work, and the grounds would be maintained. The whole experience felt like a lost opportunity. They've got the most spectacular setting to work with, but have done nothing to make the hotel experience match its surroundings.

My wife and I spent 3 nights in a quiet soundproof Deluxe Room on the 7th floor of the new building. The views of the sea and sunsets from the room window were simply wonderful. The double beds were quite comfortable and the in-room A/C worked like a charm. The bathroom shower and tub were so nice that we didn't even bother to go to the non-mineral public bath. Room service was offered, but we elected for only towel replacement and trash removal in exchange for a 1000 yen daily credit at the hotel's shops. The breakfast buffet was a nice mix of Japanese and western items. I recommend filling up on the (expensive elsewhere!) local beef over rice self-made gyudon--the local beef melted like butter in my mouth and was soooooo delicious!! We used the hotel's marine desk for a 3 hour snorkel tour by boat. It was so easy to do--we put on our swim suits in the hotel room and walked a couple of minutes to the beach where the kind marine staff provided us with wet suits, mask, snorkel and a safety briefing. Then we jumped into the boat for a 5 minute ride to the edge of the reef. While snorkeling, we were escorted by a knowlegeable marine staff member. We saw lots of fish on the live coral reefs, a sea turtle and 3 poisonous sea snakes. Also, while snorkeling a bit away from the group, I was spooked by a 6 foot Black Tip Reef Shark gliding along the reef shelf just 20 feet away from me. That was a memorable adrenaline rush!!! The hotel's service staff was considerate and helped us learn to use the access-by- fingerprint safe deposit boxes located in the lobby. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the Ishigaki Seaside Hotel and intend to return in the very near future.

We stayed in bungalow nb. 7 for 8 nights with breakfast and dinner included. Note that the hotel has a shuttle service to and from the airport, we didn't know when we arrived and caught a taxi there, which was quite expensive.

The bungalow was quite big and looked as expected from the photos on the website. Ours was the most private of all the bungalows, so we were happy to stay in nb. 7. The hotel is not fancy, and while we were there only 1 staff member spoke English, which made it difficult to communicate. As any European couple might find natural to do, we wanted to share a bottle of sparkling wine as we arrived. Please note: the hotel does not serve any decent wine, no sparkling wine at all, and only one type of withe and one type of red wine. We'd already traveled for 2 weeks in Japan and we of course knew that Japan is not really a wine-country, but we expected more from a resort like this. The beach bar only sold glasses, but after a lot of back and forth we were able to buy some bottles to keep in the frigde in our bungalow.

The beach is nice, but because of the jellyfish you can only swin in a restricted area. It is perfect for children, with the shallow water, so there were mainly familys with young children staying at the hotel. We went to Sunset beach one day, and liked it better than Kabira. It is, on the other hand, not as child friendly, as the water gets deep quicly.

The hotel is a very relaxing place to stay, we had nothing but great, hot, sunny weather, but we got a bit bored of the hotel area. I recommed to rent a car if you stay at this hotel. The breakfast and dinner buffets are the same every day, and we ended up going to town having dinner out instead of using our pre paid coupons. For "foodies" this is definately not the hotel to visit, and we thought the island it self didn't have that many good restaurants (with 2 or 3 exceptions, but they were in town and not easily reached from Ishigaki Seaside Resort).

All in all our stay was good, we spent our time reading, tanning, swimming or rented bikes if we wanted a little trip. The bungalow was super cozy and we loved the jacuzzi on the little terrace, but missed a sunbed or two out there! We will consider going back to the island, but would then spend some more money on a more exclusive hotel and stay for less days.

In high technology country like Japan it is weird, that internet connection is in hotel lobby only.
Hotel is overpriced (for the service it provides of course). Beach is very bad - unsuitable for swimming.

No coffee maker but there’s an electric kettle. You can buy drip coffee at Starbucks in the airport or from the coffee stand in Kabira. Hotel has wifi, TV and 4G reception. No dedicated shuttle but the local bus goes from the airport to the hotel.

No, the local bus stops directly outside the hotel. You can buy a 5 day pass for 2000¥ which is handy (you can go to Ishigaki port, etc)
