I chose the hotel for its location, price with one breakfast, and airport shuttle. The location was wonderful, and the desk staff worked to be very helpful. However, the room was not ready when I checked in (about 6:00 pm). Rather, they gave me a free beverage in the bar, and the room was ready after I had finished drinking the beverage. More significantly, the price I had requested included 1 breakfast, but the breakfast was NOT included in my costs --- I had to pay extra for breakfast. Most seriously, the hotel does not run a hotel shuttle; instead they call a taxi --- which any hotel could do. The taxi ride was ILS 160 rather than the ILS 150 quoted in the online literature (I think the extra ILS 10 was a tip the taxi driver gave to the desk clerk for calling this taxi company), but I am not sure.
Overall, the hotel is a fine place to relax, being just across from the beach, the rooms were clean, service was good. The bathroom was tiny (I had to twist around the sink to get to the toilet), but the room was quite functional, and the view was fantastic. However, the description/hotel information on Trip Advisor was misleading.
