Very comfortable spacious rooms and friendly helpful staff in stark contrast to our last stay in Mitzpe Ramon . Breakfast buffet a little strange and difficult to find things but overall good experience.

We just finished a six-night stay and wished we could have stayed longer. The rooms, buffet breakfast and dinners, staff, and environment are totally wonderful. The petting area of the kibbutz is great for kids. Only 15 minutes to the center of Jerusalem, it is in a great location, overlooking Bethlehem and other communities. We got lots of good help...

We stayed at this hotel with family and friends for a weekend and had a great time. The rooms were large and very pleasant; the food was absolutely delicious and the service was outstanding. A very nice get-a-way in a very pleasant location.

The staff is so kind and helpful. The food is very good and the workout area is the best I think in Israel. The room was clean/comfortable and quiet. From my room I had a view of Bethlehem. We stayed in the newer section of the hotel and it was nice. Elevator was a bit small, but adequate.
