Stayed in 3 rooms . Nicest are more expensive which was fine , larger - pleasant and well worth the extra money.
Others were rudimentary at best.
Staff were lovely. Beach was very pleasant, smalll but clean
, safe and quiet.
Bit stranded but the sister hotel up the hill has a restaurant of sorts.
All the hotels in the area have very basic
Amenities , very simple menu’s. This is an island that is slightly lost in terms of time and investment. Architectural style is closer to army barracks styling. Restaurants are so few and far between outside the main town it’s amazing. You can drive for 39/40 mins and not see anywhere. Great diet location generally.
Weather is clearly a factor, judging by the concrete barricades the weather here must be destructive as hell on occasions. I assume that the sea and the wind destroy people’s hard work. Albeit island is green ,horticulture is not a priority. Generally friendly and always polite and helpful - but language is an issue. Tourist maps are always in Japanese symbols which makes getting round really tough : maps are unintelligible to westerners, even google maps won’t save you as you cannot read the symbols to put the address in.
Touristy things to do outside diving or twiddling toes in sand are really limited.
