The vicinity: great location. we chose it cos it's about halfway between the airport and the Churaumi aquarium. lots of selection of restaurants just round the corner from the hotel.
The hotel: good facilities, beautiful place to watch the sunset. helpful (English speaking) concierge who gave us a nice recommendation for my birthday dinner. extensive selection at breakfast and you can interchange your breakfast voucher for a lunch voucher in case you skip brekkie. I liked the giant bunny and hermit crabs that they keep on the ground floor.
pool and beach doesn't open till 8:30am which means a pre breakfast swim is out of the question.
rooms are not all the same layout. we booked 2 standard rooms mountain view. turned out my parents room had 3 balcony windows instead of our 2 which made theirs quite a lot brighter. try to request the "middle"room (although good luck in trying to describe it in Japanese) as it's the middle room of a row of 3 rooms that has more balcony windows.
not quite adaptable for couples who want to sleep in the same bed. there is a fixed bedside cabinet in the middle of two beds so they pull the beds away from the wall and then push them together making it a bit awkward to walk around the room. anyway better than nothing.
overall very relaxing and I'd go back again.
