We are a family of five, 3 kids ages 3, 7 and 11 who basically just want a swimming pool out of their vacation. We had a great time, because it's full of really nice people. The staff was friendly and very helpful - even calling to tell us that we'd left a chess set behind. Nothing of value, but a nice gesture. Staying on a kibbutz is usually a no-frills experience - like a motel, but set in the middle of a park. If you aren't expecting a lot, just a place to lay your head at night after having been busy during the day it's great. Don't expect to learn too much about life on a kibbutz, there's not much going on here. The only thing that was a disappointment, was that we were led to believe that there was a mini market to buy provisions, and that we could eat in the kibbutz cafeteria. The latter is true only if there is a tour group having dinner already, and was 75 shekels. A very expensive meal, especially for 5. I would not recommend Almog for backpackers or someone that isn't comfortable driving, because it's not in walking distance of anything.
We will probably visit again because the price is right and the people were great, just that I'll be better prepared next time.More
