I had a two-night stay here in May 2014 on business. To be honest it's not a great location if you have things to do in town, but I enjoyed my stay. I'm a regular platinum member. The good -It's a large impressive property. Feels a bit like something that was built in the bubble years but it's been maintained well. -Very quiet, nice views. -It's in the Seagaia resort complex, with golf, parks, and activities. -Staff were very friendly and helpful with information, and very professional checking in and out. -Received an upgrade to a very nice suite (Grand Ocean Suite) eventually. -As a plat, check in is at the concierge desk off to one side of the front desk. -The 40F lounge has great views. The bad -Transportation is a bit of a problem. The hotel is on the beach 15km from the town centre. There is bus service to/from Miyazaki station, bus service to/from the airport only on weekends and public holidays, and the nearest train station is 3km away. There were no taxis at the station when I arrived, so I walked, but you would not want to do that with bags or if it was hot. -The hotel hadn't upgraded me at all when I checked in, even though the hotel was basically empty the week after Golden Week. I insisted nicely, but they didn't have any non-smoking rooms. Eventually we decided to go and check out a smoking suite, which was fine (no smell at all, and I'm a fairly picky ex-smoker). So it ended up fine but I don't like having to argue with hotels about the upgrades they should be providing anyway... -There is literally nothing for miles. Food options ranged from pricey to extortionate on-site, although there is a shop in the basement that sells snacks and drinks, and a cafe with reasonable coffee and bakery products. -This was the only SPG hotel in Japan that made me choose between points, breakfast, and access to the onsen as the plat amenity. All the others I have been to give you both points and breakfast. A bit disappointing in that regard. -The lounge on the 40th floor is tiny and has limited options (bottled beer, soft drinks, coffee from a machine) and snacks (cookies, nuts). Overall I needed to be in town for meetings, so the location wasn't great for me. On the other hand the room was fantastic, and the resort seemed like a great place for a family trip. I'm thinking of bringing my family down for a proper holiday at some point. Basically if you plan around the transport or hire a car, and don't need to leave the hotel, this would be a good place to stay. I hope they try a bit harder with the platinum amenities in the future (especially upgrades), and the lounge could do with a bit more substance, but other than that a good stay.
