Rooms clean and functional, not too big though. Very welcoming and helpfull volunteers, members and residents. Very interesting intro in history and future of the still cooperative style Kibbutz (On demand). Nice meals in the right ambiance. You can visit other Kibbutz in the neighborhood.

The rooms are very very basic, and the wifi isn't very good, but this is one of my favorite places on the planet. The values they live buy are inspiring, the pool is refreshing, the BBQ they had for us was delicious. If you aren't looking for 5 stars but are looking a true Israeli Kibbutz experience, this is the... More

Like others wrote, this isnt a hotel, but it's great! It's about 35 minutes from Eilat, so something to keep in mind. The rooms are simple, although large with a kitchen, dining table, small couch, bed and bathroom. There is also a porch out back. Ate breakfast in the main dining hall. Nothing fancy, but they do have a special... More

We are now repeat visitors to Keren Kolot. This location is easy to get to by car or bus, and has nice, large comfortable rooms at an affordable price. Breakfast is delicious and gives visitors a quick peek into kibbutz life. There is a lot to see locally, such as Chai Bar, Timna Park, and, of course, Eilat. This is... More

We spent a wonderful 2 nights with all our children and grandchildren at this fabulous location just 50 kilometers north of Eilat. Our party comprised 10 adults and 13 children ranging in age from 18 months to almost 19. The accommodation was excellent - clean, comfortable and practical. We enjoyed our meals and the atmosphere in the Kibbutz dining room.... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the Kibbutz Keturah guest house deep in Israel's Negev desert. Accommodations are simple yet clean and comfortable. Main meals are eaten in communal dining room with the kibbutz residents and is classic kibbutz fare. The real treat is to explore an entrepreneurial yet fully cooperative success story in the desert. Solar fields and a... More
