This place was one of the nicest we stayed at in Israel. We wanted to be close to Masada to climb early in the morning. It was about a 20 minute drive. The rooms were quiet, clean and spacious. There was fresh fruit and cookies in the rooms when we arrived. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The grounds were lovely and the breakfast(included) was the best we had on our trip with a large variety of fresh. tasty food. The pool was also nice. Guests receive vouchers for the beach and spa facilities which were close by. The hotel provided a shuttle service if you did not have a car. I was shocked when I saw some bad reviews received by this property. All decent accommodations in Israel are pricey. We found this place very comfortable.
