For travelers looking to explore Okinawa proper, this is a well-located and immaculate hotel that also manages to be reasonably priced. Okinawa Grand Mer Resort and its art deco look are a very cosmopolitan place to relax, whether you are looking to enjoy a fine cocktail in a swanky atmosphere or swim some laps in the outdoor pool. A fine selection of international foods, English-speaking reception, and sunny atmosphere come together with ambient lighting and reasonable prices, excellent for getting your busy day started. All said and done, this is an immaculate hotel in the heart of Okinawa.

Finest Four Stars Hotel”
I am pleasantly surprised by the top notched services offered by Meeks for ensuring I have a comfortable stay with my family even before my arrival. The room size is huge by Japanese standard, excellent cleanliness and high floor view the way I want. I can watch the sea afar from the balcony. The location is ideal for those who drive around Okinawa for it is somewhere at the middle and is accessible to many places of interest. It may not have a sea view but that's not important since we are often on the move. Parking is always available when I need it at the hotel. The breakfast spread is good but we get bored of eating the same things for 5 days. The hotel actually gives you discount voucher for you to eat at various eateries within the hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Okinawa Grand Mer Resort.
Nice Hotel ”
Although I only stayed at the this hotel one night I could tell as the taxi pulled up this was going to be a very nice place. I arrived late and was worried I would not have a place to eat since this hotel sits on top of a hill and is sort of away for everything. I checked in and ask if the restaurant was open but unfortunately they all were close except for the bar, the front desk said that they do serve some food. I was very pleasantly surprise that the food was pretty good and local beer on draft was awesome too. The people at the bar was nice this was a great way to begin my stay at the Okinawa Grand Mer Resort.
Okinawa, my birthplace!”
My father was stationed at Kadena Air Force Base in Okinawa 50 some years ago. My parents adopted me in 1956 and brought me back to the United States. I vowed to someday get back to Okinawa just to see what it was like. The concierge and the entire staff at the Grand Mer were wonderful. They arranged many tours for us and even provided me with a wheel chair my entire stay. My parents tried to look up relatives, friends, etc., but were unsuccessful. The concierge took down information from my mother and said she would do additional research after we were gone. We had the best service we've ever had anywhere. I'd definitely return to this hotel.
Great value for a resort hotel”
We were looking for a good way to end our stay in Okinawa. The Grand Mer has everything need to entertain. We enjoyed a great all you can eat and drink buffet with our friends. Newer hotel that is up to Resort Hotel status.
Excellent hotel with Japanese tatami room at reasonable price”
One of the hotels in Okinawa which offer Japanese tatami room at a very reasonable price. Love the rooms. Super spacious and comes with balcony. Location wise it's on top of hill so it can be a little out of the place if you do not drive. Excellent service rendered by the staff here. Breakfast is really delicious too. They offer free shuttle bus pick up from the airport which is a major plus! THey can even arrange for rental cars for you. As we arrive late in Okinawa for DAy 1, we took their FREE shuttle bus to the hotel and arranged for a rental car the next morning.
at least 3 in front of the door to welcome you with smile and hand down to help open door, pick bags”
Most speak English, tour guide Ms. S was wonderful, very polite, kindly to guide us for okinawa tourS. I got tickets to Aqualirium, snorkeling, others places to see before coming to the hotel, yet she still help set private driver for us for a day. ( showed other option in cost and time with bus/urails) She would spend her time as long as you need. We had a good time in okinawa because of her help. Really good breakfast. We missed one breakfast because snorkeling, they let us use it for lunch. They have Western restaurant/bar. Laundry free soup from front desk. You have to pay for coffee. free tea. Room is very clean and roomy, bathroom is a bit small for big guy. but nothing compare to loisir. ( not suggest to book at (LOISIR)
Wonderful hotel staff, great hotel”
it was my second time staying in this hotel. i was traveling with 3 kids and a baby. the staff did everything they could do to provide the best service and help . i have been traveling to many countries and staying in many hotels, but staff here are wonderful person. and five stars are not enough for them. my kids like the hotel so much and keep talking about iif. my best gratitude to the staff that helped me changed my car's tyre which was flat at the end of our stay just before we left. i know it is not your job , but you did it for us. i really appreciate it. the hotel location was perfect to explore okinawa north and south . we had a very good time in okinawa.
Beautiful Hotel. The staff was as helpful as any that I have had the pleasure of meeting. The view of the pacific was gorgeous from our room. The studio room was more then adequate for two people. I would recommend this to anyone that would be traveling to Okinawa. It was close to everything that we need to get too. Once you learn your way around this part of the island it was a breeze to get from this hotel to anywhere.
I liked everything at the Grand Mer. It was clean, the staff were wonderful, even with a little language barrier they were outstanding. Our Room was huge and the cleaning service excellent. Nice restaurant, excellent Lounge with a view. All the rooms had excellent ocean side views. Parking was a little concern but, they seemed to work that out ok. Just a wonderful grand experience at the Grand Mer! I would stay again without question
Great location for Central Okinawa”
The studio room is an upgrade to a standard room. Very good value for the money. Located in a quiet neighborhood unlike the Chatan area. Good location on the East side of Central Okinawa. Outdoor parking with several off property parking that the hotel provides free shuttle service to/from if needed. Lobby has a currency exchange ATM. Room has fridge, microwave, hot water pot, toaster oven and a good LAN connection. There are a couple of self service laundry machines on each floor. They also have a nice indoor pool.
Nice hotel, ”
Very convenience as they have free shuttle bus from airport and to American village. Enough it's not with frequent schedule, it's already good enough for us. Staff can speak well English...clean room and nice view. If you go Okinawa in winter and do not need to live close by the sea for swimming, this hotel is highly recommended with very good price.
Love the Japanese room style ”
I've been visited other 2 hotels during this trip to Okinawa. And this is the best hotel so far, they had free shuttle bus to American village and Naha airport. I stayed for 3 nights in Japanese room style- really like it. Spacious and clean room. They got a really good bath soap really nice smells. Information (Nicole) really helps us a lot! Can speak English and Japanese fluently. Thank for Nicole. Really recommended to stay here!
Amazing hotel for family or couple ”
The location is not as central as the hotels in Naha but if you are driving, it’s very convenient. The service here is the best we had in Okinawa, the staff pay attention to every details. For the price we are paying, we get a huge room with all the necessaries provided. This hotel really made our trip even better.
It was great.”
My family, two adults and 6-year old child, spent two days at this hotel. Overall environment was pleasant and view from the room was fantastic. Breakfast buffet was more than expected. Above all, when we arrived, we were welcomed by very kind and beautiful girls who can speak Korean. That made us feel everything more comfortable. We would like to stay here, if we can visit Okinawa once more.
We've stayed in Okinawa 6 days, lived in 3 different hotels. The view, the room size, the comfort... compared with the other two, this one is the best one without doubt. We both had a great experience there, and will choose there for next time being Okinawa definitely!! Highly recommend for car-traveler!!
great break in okinawa”
V started with a great welcome from the hotel free shuttle driver, and a nice video presentation of the hotel during the 1 hour ride, thru Naha and the freeway. Wifi in the lobby, and free internet access in the room, and free PC on the 2nd floor. V had enjoyed verey much the free swimming pool and the big aircon fitness room, with city & ocean view. very reasonnable cost for Japanese and international breakfast buffet. Nice walk around the hotel. Short cab rides to the nearby Okinawa city center, beaches, and the world heritage Nakagusuku ruins.
Nice Hotel with wonderful staff”
The guest room was big that I was unexpected. There was a big balcony that was facing the amazing scenery of Okinawa. We can hung up our washed clothes at the balcony with the provided foldable hanger. I still remembered that when we just arrived the hotel, the time was nearly 8 pm, the staff provided timely checked-in service for us with their fluent English, so that we can settled our baggages timely to enjoy the trip with limited time. There was no language barrier at all. On the other hand, the staff was willingness to help when my spouse cannot know how to manage the GPS of her rented car. I concluded that Dai-ichi hotel is a very nice hotel that I am eager to introduce to other people who plan to have a trip in Okinawa.
Hotel for the Okinawa marathon”
We are a group of 4, staying in this hotel for the Okinawa Marathon because the start/finish point is just 1km from this hotel. The hotel is fully occupied by runners, but the check in / check out still very quick, and staff are really helpful. The hotel is very considerate, providing complimentary shuttle bus to/from the venue. Upon departure, we took the hotel shuttle bus to the airport. The hotel also provides free shuttle bus to the American Village. We had dinner in hotel restaurant the night after marathon, it's nice and reasonably priced. It was a pleasant stay! One disappointment is that the hotel does not have onsen public bath which I would expect most Japanese hotels would have.
Excellent Value and Service”
I travelled there for business and brought the family along so we could go experience Okinawa on the weekends. As far as accommodations the Superior (Quad) western style room was pretty standard. I would have to agree that the carpet in that room did seem a tad run down. However we did experience the Japanese style room (same price) which the hotel did for us free of charge. I would highly recommend the Japanese style room although those not used to sleeping on harder surfaces might have a hard time sleeping on the floor. The Japanese style room had very clean floors (no shoes of course). Aside from the clean floors in the Japanese style room they also had an extra deep bathtub. Both rooms we tried had enough water pressure and volume to wash a pack of elephants. Not sure if it’s a standard in Japanese hotels but the water could get hot enough to burn you if you are not careful, but if you are you can get really nice hot showers/baths. The concierge staff was very helpful and many were fluent in English. The pools are heated and the kids really enjoyed the kiddie pool. Not sure how they arrange the rooms there but smoking rooms can be right next to non smoking rooms so it would be kind of annoying being a non smoker to not be able to leave the window open for fresh air. Smokers next door would be on the balcony puffing away and the air would just get blown straight into our room. Buffet was standard. We did not try but I believe they do have another restaurant were you could order items. The only odd thing about the hotel is that it is located on a hill in a residential area so walking anywhere is not really an option.
Great place to stay”
Friendly knowledgeable and help staffs. Always see the staff in their smiles and always helpful. Chinese and english friendly environment, no communication problem. Suggestion of itinerary and alternatives with very gd planning and times needed. Surely recommend to people to stay and surely will be back there the next time to okinawa
