“Fine for sleeping”
Reviewed January 10, 2011

During a 2 week tour, I spent 2 nights here. The facility was fine for sleeping but would not have pleased me if the stay had been longer. We were a large group so the line at dinner was quite long ( I really hate lines). The food selection was not great but the quality was ok. I'm accustomed to nice sandy beaches so this beach was not up to par.

Reviewed November 8, 2010

service was prompt dealt quickly with the enormous cockroach in the bath, verandah nice and private we were on opposite side of pool, room was large but somewhat dingy with threadbare but clean duvet covers. phone didnt work and kettle blow the electricity. Main bed very comfortable although pull out bed like a rock. very limited parking (16 cars) always full so have to use city parking which entails buying parking tickets and if you dont know this the parking inspector turns up at 7 a.m and fines you 150 shekels!
Breakfast was a poor kibbutz style and the coffee was undrinkable - most dishes were half empty. Really need to invest in a good coffee machine.
Verandah restaurant on the beach very nice staff, quick and plentiful food at reasonable prices and drinkable coffee!
Very good spa treatments.
Nice pool and friendly attendant.
Great location right on the beach which is the only factor which recommends this hotel.
