The Shiraraso Grand was probably the grand dame of Shirahama beach, with its outdoor hot spring bath located almost on the beach itself. You risk exposing yourself to beach goers if you do not keep below the water line past a certain point.

Food is excellent, and service is really good. However, as with most old-style hotels in Japan, little English is spoken.

It is located right behind the Shirahama bus centre bus stop, which makes it convenient to everywhere.

We stay here to celebrate our anniversary and take hotel package with dinner: Kumano beef course.
The food is great, kumano beef texture is melting in mouth and the seafood are fresh.
They have private family bath (2 hour with fee around 1.200 yen, better book in advance) and the onsen facility (there is outdoor onsen that facing the shirahama beach, its very nice view)
The hotel access is very easy, you can take Meiko bus from Shirahama St for 340 yen/person. The bus stop is very close to the hotel, just 1-2 minute walk. If you need the direction guide you can ask the nice lady at the tourism Shirahama St., she is very helpful. Once you arrive at the hotel, you can walk around to the beach, the Shirahama beach is just right in front of the hotel. The sand is white, but no water sports here.
There is convenient store at the corner of the road in front of the Hotel.
This is our first experience of ryokan hotel, the room is spacious, on the evening the hotel staff will arrange the futon for you. The futon is actually quite comfort, its not like I imagine would be hard to sleep at tatami.
We really enjoy the stay and have a good relaxation here.

Room Tip: Try the Japanese room (ryokan) with beach view.

I travelled with my husband and two small kids (2 years and 4 years old). The room rate was about US$200, but I need to pay extra charge for my kids, US$40 each. Hence, total charged US$260/night (no meal included). But the room was very very small. I accepted such size if staying in Tokyo downtown. Definitely not in onsen resort.
The worse part was the service. We got 2 pillows in my room and asked for 2 additional pillows for my kids. The staff told me that NO more pillow in this hotel!! Unbelievable.

Room Tip: Very small room. Need to pay attention before booking. Additional charge for small kids.

This hotel has a perfect location on the beach, close to restaurants and a grocerie store open 24h. The outdoor pool is nice but not heated, the onsen is very nice. We had Breakfast included which was nice, but first two mornings were traditional japaneese and the third morning it was more western. Our children did not enjoy the food though, but we grown ups did!

The room is in traditional Japanese-style with a tatami area, it is clean and huge. Our room can enjoy the sea view and seashore from Shirahama beach.

The onsen is good. Especially the one at the 2nd floor outdoor, we can enjoy onsen with sea view.

The staff was very nice and helpful. Because when we check in, they saw that we have quite many belongings. They are very helpful to use the trolley to get all belongings to our room.
