        MEMORABLE, GREAT FOOD AND COMFORTABLE”

        GOOD HOSPITALITY, GREAT FOOD AND BEAUTIFUL SURROUNDINGS

        I visited this hotel in Nov 2013 but reviewed only now due to busyness then overlook. Though 2D1N, it was one of the most memorable stays I had. This hotel is accessible via an express bus (scheduled timings and numerous stops) from airport which stops inside a big hotel (alighting point) and you can ask the reception for walking direction to Sendan hotel from there. Sendan hotel is quite a distance away from main road but you can admire the small plantations on the way. It is surrounded by lots of greenery and a small garden done up by the owners. It is also a 5 minutes drive to a small unique village and you can walk to the Okinawa Aquarium from there. I had reserved the Japanese style room but was given the Western twin room. Nonetheless, it was equally comfortable, spacious, clean and well maintained with a window and balcony that overlooks nature. The lady owner is a very nice and friendly person who can speak Mandarin and English. She can also recommend places to visit and provide directions well. The owner speaks English and is a good chef (I missed his Japanese cuisine very much!). My dinner experience was good not only because of the great food but also the introduction of each and every dish by the lady owner. It helped me to understand what I was eating. What I appreciated much about the stay is the hospitality of the owners. Being a sole traveller, the lady owner had took special care of me, such as loaning me her phone FOC to make international call back home when my mobile phone was out, recommended me places to visit in the limited hours of stay I could afford and given me a free ride to the village. We had a good chat throughout and I will definitely come back again with friends! (Ps: For dog lovers, you will be glad because there are 2 friendly dogs to accompany you but for those who are not fond of dogs like me, they can be too friendly to handle…haha…)

        Lovely B&B tucked away in Motobu, Okinawa”

        Thoughtful hosts, delicious food, clean & quaint

        We loved our stay at Minshuku Sendan. If you're looking a for a full-service hotel for relaxation, but would like to experience a traditional home in Okinawa–this is a great choice. It's charismatic, private (only two rooms), and the hosts are a truly helpful couple. Waking up every morning to an Okinawan breakfast made fresh (some things from their garden) by the thoughtful chef was an absolute treat. Would definitely recommend if you're heading up to North Okinawa!

        Hosts, location and food

        Loved staying at Minshuku Sendan while exploring northern Okinawa. The host couple is so nice. Not only do they prepare really nice food but they also love to talk which only makes the experience more cosy. The place can be a bit difficult to find but you basically just have to drive towards the aquarium. At some point you will see a small sign on the right taking you up a narrow road. If you get to the aquarium you've gone too far.

        Food, friendliness

        stayed for 3 nights during self drive trip to Nago city, quite hard to find (up a small road) so do use google maps! When we arrived, we were immediately greeted by the owner who was really friendly and even insisted on carrying our bags up the stairs despite her old age! We chose the Japanese style room which was very clean and had everything we needed. One small note, water temperature and pressure can fluctuate sometimes during baths though. Nice terrace outside where we could have drinks etc. Had 3 breakfasts and 2 dinners at the restaurant Sendan, ALL were amazing and unique every time! Ingredients are so fresh and well prepared. Just like other reviewers I highly recommend the Kaiseki course which lasts 2 hours with around 8 courses, each so well thought through and prepared with pride! Really a good time at Sendan hotel, owners were so helpful too!

        I enjoyed my stay at Sendan. The landlady was very friendly and recommended some nearby sights to me. For me, the highlight of the stay was the food that was served by the landlord, who used to work in London as a chef. I recommend trying the omakase course offered by Sendan. Overall, it was a great experience.

        Friendly service, Delicious food and Peaceful surroundings

        We stayed for two nights in the Japanese-styled room. Took a while to get used to sleeping on the floor. Room is well-kept and amenities provided. There is also a balcony outside the room, where you can view the starlit-sky at night. We relied solely on the GPS to find our way to the guesthouse, which is located near to the Churaumi Aquarium. The two owners are very friendly and extremely helpful, especially the lady owner. She is from Shanghai and conversing with her in Mandarin is a breeze. She gave us helpful tips on where to go and even assisted us to make reservations at the nearby golf course. The highlight of the stay is definitely the food. Breakfast is excellent and we looked forward to waking up in the morning. The Chef's Special Course is a must-try and for 3000 jyp, you get to taste a 8-course dinner that uses only the freshest ingredients. A most memorable experience indeed.

        Wonderful food in peaceful surroundings”

        friendly staff, delicious food, quiet environment

        We stayed in the Japanese room which is spacious for two people. The location is in the suburbs and about 2 hours bus ride from Naha Airport. We enjoyed the quiet and peaceful surroundings and found the stay relaxing. Due to the location, there are not many nearby attractions to visit unless you drive. The owner spoke Japanese and basic English while his wife spoke Chinese so communication was not a problem. The owners are very helpful and go out of their way to make sure that we have a comfortable stay. The owner is also the chef and his dishes are delicious. I recommend that you order the Chef Special Dinner (around 3,000 yen) as it is really good.

        Two-night stay ”

        We had an excellent stay in this hotel. Food is so delicious in traditional Japanese style. The host also gave us a warm welcome. Thank you for that. Yet, the location is difficult to get to by using the old phone number. It would be much easier if the Map code can be updated.

        Lack of facilities”

        Lack of facilities; in front of the rooms have Mosquitos and geckos, surrounding environment is dark; in front of the hotel have 2dogs belong to the staff, I'm personally afraid dogs, it make me scared all the time; the location is not convenient to buy foods and to the heart of city, in conclusion not satisfactied.

        Clean room & washroom, great food

        The room & washroom are very clean, breakfast very tasty, ingredients are fresh. I had dinner too it is very yummy. But location is not easy to find, only suitable if you are driving.

        The couple who own and run it, the peace and quiet, the food.

        Wonderful place, run by a charming and friendly couple. Make sure you eat there too. The set meal requires a day's notice (and is well worth it), but a la carte can be ordered in the moment.
