Hotel located right on the beach. It's quite enjoyable to sit in the open onsen on 2nd floor because you can see the nice ocean view. The room is small. Staff can only speak little English. If you want to take the free shuttle bus to Shirshama Station when you leave, you need to book it when check in the...

The Shiraraso Grand was probably the grand dame of Shirahama beach, with its outdoor hot spring bath located almost on the beach itself. You risk exposing yourself to beach goers if you do not keep below the water line past a certain point. Food is excellent, and service is really good. However, as with most old-style hotels in Japan, little...

I travelled with my husband and two small kids (2 years and 4 years old). The room rate was about US$200, but I need to pay extra charge for my kids, US$40 each. Hence, total charged US$260/night (no meal included). But the room was very very small. I accepted such size if staying in Tokyo downtown. Definitely not in onsen...

This hotel has a perfect location on the beach, close to restaurants and a grocerie store open 24h. The outdoor pool is nice but not heated, the onsen is very nice. We had Breakfast included which was nice, but first two mornings were traditional japaneese and the third morning it was more western. Our children did not enjoy the food...

The room is in traditional Japanese-style with a tatami area, it is clean and huge. Our room can enjoy the sea view and seashore from Shirahama beach. The onsen is good. Especially the one at the 2nd floor outdoor, we can enjoy onsen with sea view. The staff was very nice and helpful. Because when we check in, they saw...

This is the second time that my wife and I have stayed at this hotel and we've had a good experience on both occasions. Some reviewers have commented on rude staff but I have to say that I've found the opposite to be the case. Sure the reception staff (all staff) only speak limited English but then what do you...
