TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 3 days ago

Stayed x5 nights.. too far from the beach to walk. Beach is not ideal for free swimming . Asked to swim only in a little box . The restaurants are very expensive average price for a small steak and salad over 175 pounds! Very isolated,local restaurants are not up to European standards and very unhealthy food.

One of Okinawa's main attraction is the number of amazing beaches around the island. The Ritz Carlton is NOT located on a beach (i.e. no direct beach access). I am not sure what happened during the planning phase of the hotel but this was left out. Instead, they have a "leased" space in front of a 3 star hotel (dont recall the name but shabby looking) on Kise beach. in that space, they have about 10-12 lounge chairs? a small Ritz Carlton towel and drinks booth. The beach area is run by water sport company call "berry".... they provide all sorts of water activities for a free. They also have 2-3 life guards on duty. The day i was there (july 17th) guard on duty were Josh (possibly Aussie), Jordan (he said he's French but Jordan is an odd name for a frenchman.... not sure if thats his real name) and their boss, Izawa or Izao (?). Berry is an independent company that doesn't really care about whether guests are happy or not. They only care about 1) getting money from you 2) covering their butts. Problems almost occur as soon as i step into the water for a 3 km ocean swim. I chose to swim in the public area (not in the tiny enclosure).when about 10 mins into the swim Josh waved me down in his lifeguard kayak and told me that i could not swim in the PUBLIC area. That i need to be either in the enclosure or "go far away" somewhere to swim. This is un-necessarily strict and i feel bullied. They have no right to tell me to go away when i am swimming in a public area. I thought about filing a formal complaint with Ritz Carlton but didn't really want to waste anymore time on this matter. Probably better to share my story here and let people be aware of the real situation. And my friend was NOT allowed to use her snorkel in the enclosure (she is not a strong swimmer and i need to keep an eye out for her) She was asked to pay a fee by Jordan (frenchman). We both thought that this is a ridiculous demand and it feels like a robbery. They should just charge me for wearing my swimming pants while they are at it. so she is kicked outside of the enclosure and told to "go far away" where there are "box jellyfish, stonefish, lionfish" according to the lifeguard....and "good luck and take care". It feels like they are mocking us. Eventually i confronted their japanese boss, Izao or Izawa, who spoke no english and offered no solution. No attempt was given to just allow my friend to snorkel in peace and let her enjoy her vacation. No real answer was offered when i asked him why i could not swim in the public space. But the feeling that i get is that (via translator), if something does happen to me while i am swimming OUTSIDE of the enclosure they do not want to do anywhere near it. Hence, they keep telling me to go far away. They have no real interest in your safety or making sure that you are happy- they just want to make sure that their butts are covered. The Ritz Carlton staff on duty saw the whole thing and felt bad for us. Offered 2 free drinks. Ritz Carlton management- you can do better and you must do better. This was honestly a very unpleasant experience. DITCH this crappy arrangment with Kise hotel/Berry and set up your own beach area with a staff/lifeguard that really cares about their guest. Don't let them ruin other people's vacation again! The hotel ground itself is consistent with most 5 star resorts all over the world. It was good but not spectacular. The rooms are okay. The mattresses are hard as a rock.... but its like that everywhere in Japan. The views from the lobby area is good. But then again not as jaw dropping as Santorini or Hawaii. The swimming pool, if you can call it that, more like a plunge pool, is way too warm for a hot summer day. The water needs to be a bit cooler. We had dinner at KISE teppanyaki one night. i had the KISE set....the others in my group had the 2nd set. The KISE set was okay, seared tuna a little over seared, lobster was only HALF a lobster (i was expecting a whole lobster for a 200 USD set course) was also a little overcooked and bland. Not much of a taste. The beef was good (fillet and sirloin), and desert was also good. We also ordered a bottle of Chardonny from Puglia, Southern Italy- we enjoyed it. Overall, I would not come back to Ritz Carlton Japan again. If you are looking for direct beach access with an amazing beach view from your room. Try Monterey @ Tiger beach. Nikko is also a good hotel with a nice beach area and friendly beach staff. There are tons of good food outside - Ryukyu no Ushi is a highly rated grilled meat restaurant. Give it try. You wont be disappointed. One last thing- Train your staff to speak proper English! This is the most basic.. They couldn't even get the food order for the baby correct. (among many other things). We ordered "MINCED CHICKEN" over the phone.... and guess what showed up? CHOPPED.

Tremendously beautiful and serene. Went here for 4 days with my wife and younger daughter for quick break before they leave on summer holiday to America (we live in Tokyo_). Long drive away, but we knew this and arranged pickup ($150 equivalent). an hour or so later we arrived to a beautiful drive to a castle-like open air environment. Amazing welcome by friendly staff (most appear to be able to speak a little English at least). room was beautiful and had roll away - but a really nice roll away- for my daughter. great view over golf course and could see water in the distance. bathroom is stellar with top and separate shower and oh the Japanese toilets with heated seats, gotta love toto. Ended up having food in room first night and next morning, just to relax. Pool is large and beautiful, though drinks and food limited by pool, it's sufficient (but others have commented on coke/tea expense), I didn't find the alcohol outrageous (just not cheap), but the sangria was excellent and very large. Tried pizza lunch one of the days by pool (pizza day is 3x per week and skewers another 3x per week), pizza was fantastic. Friendly staff by pool with fresh, plentiful towels, free fruit waters. it's just very aesthetic. Tried the shared beach and thought it was great though 'smallish', it's spotless and safe, beautiful coral sand, but really nice wait staff there and a free 5 minute shuttle from hotel. you can order drinks and there are nice lounges and towels and umbrelllas for everyone staying at ritz. that was pleasant. tried the obstacle course next door at adjoining hotel and somehow ritz allows room charges (nice touch!!!), that was fun. Had breakfast buffet 2x, pricey, but somehow still good in spite of price. western and Japanese offerings. Had special and very pricey dinner one night at the Italian restaurant (but I have to say some of that is due to nice bottle of wine chosen). Service, service is the best anywhere (great job RC staff). Shopped at excellent hotel store (charged to room, yay), so checking out was 1 bill, 1 ritz credit card (also yay). I'm being funny here, but this hotel in guam would be amazing and needed. I recommend this to anyone and would welcome returning here if and when we go to Okinawa. oh, separate from hotel, but hotel helped us and it got central billed to our room (another yay!) RC arranged for a driver for us for the day to take us to the aquarium (a must--nicest aquarium in the world quite possibly, even compared to my home fav of Atlanta, GA), kouri island as well, and stopped wherever we wanted. fantastically convenient, all served by ladies and gentlemen. Wow is all I can say. Yes the 4 days, excluding room were pretty pricey, but I have to say all worth it. Very quiet and private property, quiet rooms, comfortable pillows and beds. You guys rock--THANK YOU for this special time!!!!!

We ended up extending our stay because the staff and service was outstanding. The room has its own cabana and jacuzzi plus direct access to the outdoor pool. Very private. Limited TV channels. Great spa, great dining especially the Teppan-Yaki place ( Kise) . Lobby cafe overlooks a golf course. Cocktails served by the pool are not good though and only a small selection unless you go to the Bar. Buffet breakfast, has a good selection fusion of Japanese and western, but the breakfast coffee is terrible ( I'm picky with my coffee) Helpful staff and friendly staff. Overall great relaxing atmosphere.

My wife and I stayed here at the end of our japan trip. I can truly say it was worth the wait. The staff are very friendly and really attentive. The resort was quiet so it was nice for a romantic break. The hotel is in great condition, we had a cabana room that was really worth it for the jacuzzi and easy access to the pool. We ate at all 3 restaurants, the teppanyaki was a great experience and we had an Italian chef (can't remember his name) who was very friendly and made the experience better! The private beach that is off site is ok not great, but we weren't to bothered about this as we were there for the luxury and chill out time. Only 2 things let the resort down, 1st is the shuttle bus from the airport, it only runs to the resort once a day, the rest of the time it runs to the Marriott close by and the ritz pick you up from there. The bus doesn't run from 12-6 at the airport, we arrived at 2.30 so had to wait for 3 and a half hours! It was a little annoying as we wanted to get the resort asap. 2nd let down is how expensive it is, I know it's the ritz but 1,000 yen for a Coke is a bit much... a tip for travellers is to go to the local family mart by the Kise beach (the ritz Carlton have a free shuttle service there) and pick up some cheap drinks... we did this and it made the stay better for us in the fact we weren't painfully drinking drinks knowing it costs an arm and a leg! Other than the above it was a truly great stay and we loved every minute.. not many hotels will be able to live up to there standards
