There are three types of accomodations at the Ramot Resort: regular hotel rooms (very basic) a family cabin (wood) and the "chalet" (a bit pretentious in name, but basically also a wooden cabin just larger and better fitted out).We opted for the chalet and were there in mid -July for 3 nights.The place is spotlessly clean, the grounds are gorgeous, the pool is large and pristine.
The chalet had a large spacious room, comfortable bed,a mini fridge filled with cold drinks for which you are not charged , an espresso machine, and a kettle. It has its own sauna in the room, a jacuzzi and a little extra bedroom which has a bunk bed and another single bed and its own TV. There is comfortable furniture to sit on- a couch and 2 easy chairs- besides a high table and bar stools. There is also a coffee table, a desk and workstation for a laptop with wifi connection.There is good lighting, lots of mirrors (including a mgnifying mirror in the bathroom), not a tremendous amout of haning sopace, though. The TV hangs from the ceiling (a feature we didn't like), and there is also a separate dvd player.All in all, a place where you can feel very comfortable, as also on the lovely terrace overlooking the spectacular view of the Sea of Galile.The airconditioning is very strong and really made the climate bearable. Unfortunately, because of the terrible heat and humidity (despite being in the foothills of the Golan mountains, it isn't high enough on the ridge to escape the humidity of Tiberias), we were only able to take advantage of the terrace in the mornings. They are willing to bring you your breakfast to be served on the terrace at no extra cost, but we nonetheless opted to eat in the dining room, where we could have a larger choice of foods.
There were all kinds of goodies awaiting in the bath (which had a large and good shower, no bath tub), slippers and robes for use. They gave us a bottle of wine, a box of chocolates and also two free half hour massages with probably the best masseuse I have ever had. (So good, in fact, that we re-ordered her on our own for the next day as well.You can order her through the reception; her name is Hen).
Only the food was disappointing . We had dinner the first night which was very banal, nothing more. The breakfasts were ok, but again- compared to the level of Israeli breakfasts in other hotels, it was not what it could or should have been, especially considering the price we paid per night (1100 shekels, which at the current exchange rate is $285).
The staff is basically young people from the surrounding areas who are all very pleasant,but not well enough trained to be "crackerjack" professional.
Despite our reservations, we would still go back, though probably not to the chalet, but rather to the cabin, which is almost the same, minus the coffee machine and the sauna.
The wonderful solitude, the fabulous view and, in a different season, the better weather would still be reason enough for us to make a return visit. And hopefully- the food will improve.
