“Great Value at Chatan/American Village”
Reviewed 23 November 2010

Its not a luxury beach resort, but travelers/vacationers looking for value in Japan would be pleased at The Beach Tower Okinawa.

Located at "American Village," Chatan, the hotel fronts the man made beach "Sunset Beach." The beach is protected for easy swimming, and the west facing direction ensures daily sunsets to watch.

American Village includes a number of dining, shopping, and entertainment options, so there are many attractions within easy walking distance. The hotel also operates an onsen hot bath just next to the lobby, which is free to hotel guests.

My room was very clean and well maintained. There are plenty of plush towels and pajamas are provided. The hotel also includes small packets of instant coffee and a hot water heater. The view from my 18th floor ocean view room was spectacular.

The morning breakfast is mostly Japanese style, and includes scrambled and fried egges, miso soup, rice, salad, limited fruit, yogurt, coffee, and juice.

There are no real entertainment options in the hotel. The bar is very simple and not very interesting. The Orion beer is very cold, however.

Although this is not a world class luxury class hotel, its good value in consideration of the cost for the value received. There seem to be many US military related personnel staying at the hotel, which is consistent with the fact that large US bases like Kadena and Futenma are close by.

Staff working at the hotel were very kind and considerate. I experienced no lines at check in or check out.

The Beach Tower Okinawa hotel and resort is fine for any guest considering to stay in the Chatan area of Okinawa.

This hotel is not for Americans or other tourist who do not speak Japanese. Our experience there was horrible! No staff can communicate with english speaking guests. Also there was an earthquake the morning after we arrived and the hotel staff did not even come to our room to let us know we needed to evacuate our room. They played an announcement over an intercom instructing guests about what happened and to evacuate their room however it was in Japanese. We had to go down to the front desk to see what was going on because the hotel was shaking and swaying. Ridiculous! All guests were out of their rooms downstairs with their luggage while we were still in our rooms wondering what the hell was going on! Not to mention we were on the 13th floor of the hotel........that should have been our sign (#13 in america)......BAD LUCK! Oh and when we tried to go down to front desk the elevators were not working.....we had to use stairs.....anyway I would not recommend this hotel for Americans!

The hotel was absolutely beautiful, and I had a room that overlooked the beach. Everyone on the hotel staff was extremely friendly and most helpful. It's right near American Village (or it may be in the village, I'm not sure) so there is a lot to do. There is a spa right next door with a natural hotspring, and there is tons of shopping (Jusco is right next door also) I would highly recommend it!
