The last review here is spot-on. We are very fond of this place as the staff were so friendly, the cocktails and chococello are great (I drank a lot of caipirinhas) and it is 30 seconds walk from a gorgeous beach. It is a 5-6km walk into "town" but I don't think you're missing much as it was pretty dead...

My wife and toddler and I spent several days at White Beach Hotel. The reviews seem spot on, and you should read closely to determine what is most important for you. The hotel has a premo location meters from the beach, but it's not really beach front - there's a road in between the beach and hotel. The hotel itself...

This was not a good hotel. Pizzas are great and the staff was most helpful however it is a very dirty and almost comical how the establishment is run. Very surprising to find this hotel in Japan next to such a lovely beach. It could be so lovely if they tried cleaning and updating the decor.

Location can't be beat and friendly customer service. Staff are very accommodating. Definitely my number one recommendation for staying right on Shimoda beach. Relaxed atmosphere and good food options as well.

Probably the best spot to stay in Shimoda area. This is a great beach hotel with really friendly staff. We have a great time with our two kids. We all just loved it. Great restaurant with the best pizzas in town (but a little expensive I thought).

This is a small version of paradise when you are trying to escape from the stressful and busy Tokyo. The location is ideal right next to the beach, perfect for long walks in the morning and even surfing! The restaurant, with a nice terrace, serves wood oven pizza and some other delicious dishes! But what really WOWed me in this...

Great location on a more relaxing beach, as opposed to the nearby Shirahama. Perfect place to unwind with helpful staff and good food. The price is a little expensive for the accomodation but I'm sure your paying more for location than the room. One lovely staff member even let me borrow her surfboard, thank you!! It should be noted that...

At first we were doubtfull whether to go to this hotel because of some bad rated reviews on tripadvisor from couple years ago. However, all questions we had beforehand were quickly answered by email. So we gave it a try and directly on arrival we experienced a nice and friendly welcome. It is a beach hotel so do not expect...

こんなに汚いホテルには、はじめて泊まりました 部屋に入った途端に感じるのは何とも言えない空気の悪さ。そして土足禁止のカーペットはなぜかシミだらけで、壁紙ははがれたり穴があいていて、メンテナンスは最悪。 チェストも埃と砂だらけで、不潔な印象です 外のシャワーもヘッドが壊れていて、途中から水がでてくる始末。 アメニティは、シャンプー、ボディソープ、タオルのみ。コンディショナーはないです。 タオルも3泊目からしか変えてくれないとか。 なぜサイトにお部屋の写真がないかは明らかです。 外国人相手のホテルなので、何も気にしないのかもですが日本人は改めてとても清潔好きなんだな、と実感しました。 普通の感覚であれば、まず泊まるのはオススメしません Don't expect anything at this place.(This is not a hotel, just a space!) What an awful experience. The rooms were tiny and so dirty. Hotel amenities is only shampoo,body soap,towels.(no conditioner) That is unbelievable thing in japan as for the hotel of this class. I have never seen such a dirty...
