The check in at the hotel “The Magic Palace” goes off remarkably smoothly , considering one hundred and sixty people arrive simultaneously. Our room smells of cigarette smoke. I return to reception , no loss of temper, await patiently and am rewarded with the offer of a superior, larger non-smoking room but lacking a balcony. A difficult choice. I need to refer to ‘headquarters’ for a decision. We move rooms.
Credit where credit is due. This hotel is terrific , superbly managed . I walked around the marina and along the shore alone one morning ,looking at and thinking about the various hotels and trips that I’d had here in the last thirty years, as the resort has been built up and decided that this hotel was the nicest and this break possibly the best in all that time.
The food is excellent and so varied. Breakfast is served from seven in the morning till twelve thirty in the afternoon. On Shabbat morning there was Jachnun, that wonderfully sweet dough cooked overnight and covered with tomato puree and sehug .
And Friday night…..Apart from the goat, which Nechama chose there was what every traditional family in the Shteitelach of Der Heim had as an hors’douvre.. Yes you’ve got it in one ---Sushi.
This meal was so stunningly good and elaborate that it finished me off. Knocked out completely I flopped into bed exhausted at 9.pm!!
