Large hotel by the beach, bit away from city centre. Review based on a six night stay in March’10 (background of spending 80+ nights per year in different hotels around the globe)
There’s not too much happening in the immediate neighborhood, but if you are willing to walk for 10 min or so there are quite many bars/restaurants/cafes along the beach in the south and especially in the harbor to the north. Hotel is not right on the beach but very close to it.
From the Ben Gurion airport it’s approximately 30 min drive.
I had a basic room in 6th floor which was quite large, certainly more than enough for me as a single traveler. It was in very good shape, no stains etc anywhere. There was quite large balcony with good views.
One negative point: the room was a connecting room and unfortunately the inside door between the rooms has very little sound insulation, which is especially bad since the door is facing directly the bathroom/toilet. So I’ll let you imagine what kind of noises could be easily heard from the next door, alas… Apart from that there was very little noise.
Room had large LCD TV and the normal equipment such as safe, ironing board and mini bar. WLAN connection worked fine, though it was expensive.
Three complimentary bottles of water were replenished every day. In addition I received a bottle of wine, fruit plate and some chocolates.
One bit strange thing was that rooms were being cleaned starting already at 8 o’clock in the morning, so I would recommend using the Do Not Disturb sign quite often here if you intend to sleep late.
As HHonors Diamond member I did not get access to Executive Lounge, as normally is the case elsewhere in the world. Separate Business Lounge in 12th floor is used for HHonors members instead. Not really a big thing as such since the Business lounge was actually better than many Executive lounges I’ve been in, but an interesting clear violation of the global rules which clearly state that EL access must be given …
Hotel is very close to the approach line of the local airport (Sde Dov), luckily that’s a small airport with not too much traffic but occasionally you’ll get airplane noise.
Outdoor pool has sea water in it, i.e. salty and somewhat cold. Pool is also basically open towards the sea which means wind can make it a bit cold to stay at the pool. During my stay there was constant very strong sea wind.
As a part of conference I was attending we had lunch there everyday and selection + quality of the food was good. Breakfast was also good with a wide selection, even though I didn’t see any kind of meat anywhere.
We used the hotel VIP service when leaving and it worked very well: 50 min from the hotel door to tax free shop at the airport. Normally it could easily take you that 50 min just queuing for the normal security checks
Would I return there?
Yeah, quite a solid performance. Not the über-luxury 5 star hotel as such, but good nevertheless
