We stayed at this hotel in August 2014.
Although called a hotel, Hotel New Awaji is a typical japanese ryokan (inn) : tatami rooms with a sea views for most of them, hot spring bath, safe in the room with keys to wear around the neck when you go to the hot spring bath, all floors/rooms are smoking, hot spring bath, yukata, japanese dinner in the room.
Hotel New Awaji targets families and most of the rooms were occupied by 3 generations families.
The check-in was efficient, the rooms are old but very clean and well maintained, the dinners were very good with a focus on local products (you can chose between several levels of food quality, there is also a children menu). The breakfast buffet had a vast choice of continental, english and japanese breakfasts as well as excellent local products.
This hotel is connected to 5 other hotels that all belong to the same group. The good thing is that you Can use the facilities of the other hotels: cafes, restaurants, hot spring Bath, pool, garden, children's room with games. There is also a small private beach that is good for young children and you can rent beach equipment from the hotel. There is also a shuttle that goes to Sumoto Beach (one of the nicest beaches in Japan) every 30 minutes.
I would highly recommend this hotel for families with children.More
