We stayed at the Kibbutz hotel last week. The rooms were small and the furniture looked rundown yet the price was very high. The grounds were peaceful and nice to walk around but nothing spectacular. The only upside was the very generous breakfast that was included with the hotel stay price.

Very family friendly hotel. Clean and very good authentic Jewish meals were served. Our stay included two nights in this hotel. If you are looking for a excellent experience in a real Kibbutz this place is sure to satisfy. We would recommend this place to all. Weather in June was perfect. We felt very safe.

We stayed here as part of a tour with ITC. We spent two nights here July 5 - July 6. Our bathroom had a broken shower head. The tub didn't drain fast enough so I was standing in dirty water. There were bugs - mostly mosquitos - in our room and my kids room as well. There was hair and... More

It is disappointing to see that you left us with such a bad impression, in contrast to so many other guests. It is understandable if "something went wrong" turns into a feeling that "everything went wrong", especially when you are on vacation, and this is what seems to have happened. When we receive groups we always pay special attention to... More

We booked this hotel and took 3 rooms. We specifically asked them to give us the newest rooms. We were told twice that we would get new rooms for the price given to us. Upon arrival to the rooms, we got old dirty rooms. When we complained, we were told that we can take the newest rooms for more $.... More

Dear Galit, We felt sorry for seeing you leave us so upset. It is unusual to receive complaints of this kind. There must have been some sort of misunderstanding, since Sarit who is mentioned in your review perceives what happened quite differently. We will do our best to see to it that misunderstandings of this kind will not reoccur, and... More

This was better than we anticipated. It was the most clean place we stayed over our two weeks in Israel. Good beds, good WiFi and good food and better than expected service. Their gift shop was also very clean and well stocked with very fair prices. Our first stay in a Kibbutz, but it will not be our last. Walking... More

We experienced a lovely overnight stay in this special kibbutz. We enjoyed the ambiance, davening, breakfast and surrounding gardens. However, our guest room was not thoroughly cleaned prior to our arrival, and in our opinion probably needs refurbishment.

The two-night stay here during an 11-day tour of Israel provided an insightful perspective into the lives of the strict Shomer Shabat Jews. As Gentiles, my spouse and I had no idea what to expect. We really enjoyed an evening lecture/discussion about life in a kibbutz. Our room was lovely, and the dinners were better than most of the hotel... More

We stayed one night as part of an eight day Israel tour. We found the hotel relaxing, with well appointed rooms, helpful staff, good quality and varied food. The gardens with "nature walk" were a nice addition and the views of the surrounding area made this a very relaxing place to stay.

We were expecting something much simpler, but this hotel offered a spacious room, a great view and excellent food, both for dinner and breakfast. It was interesting to walk around the kibbutz and learn something of how it works at a talk in the hotel one evening. Close to the Sea of Galilee, it was a good base and a... More

This is far from a luxury experince. Even though we paid for an upgraded room, we got two twins put together. We did get a balcony, but who cares if you can't sleep. Bed was uncomfotable. Pillows were worse. The food is the worst I've had in Israel. The dinner was terrible. How they failed to produce edible scrambled eggs... More
