I have been going to Israel for thirty five years and also lead Missions to Israel of senior business executives and celebrities.I have stayed at every five star property in Israel. The Ritz Carlton in Herzlilya, only open around three months,is absolutely the best hotel experience in Israel, that one could imagine. It is true Ritz hospitality and quality at every step of the way. The hotel sits right on the Marina in Herzilya so that you have beautiful views of hundreds of sail boats sitting at anchor. You also have views and access to the most beautiful beaches in Israel- large sweeping sand beaches which are much less crowded and much more family friendly than Tel Aviv. From the first door man that greets you to the front desk staff to anyone you meet at the restaurant or bar- you ALWAYS are greeted with a friendly, warm smile. The best restaurant in Israel has always been known to be the Herbert Samuel Restaurant in Tel Aviv, but it was not kosher. The Ritz has opened a branch of the Herbert Samuel Restaurant in the hotel and for those who this is important to - it is kosher and if this is not of concern, well, you simply have the best food in Israel in the hotel. We have eaten kosher worldwide and come from NYC where you have the best and most choices, but nothing compares to the quality, presentation, freshness and taste of the offerings here. The breakfasts are creative and individually prepared as well. Everything about the hotel deserves honorable mention.There is just so much to say- the rooftop pool is stunning. The staff there are also friendly and warm. The hotel staff comes from all over the world and probably speak over fifty languages. But most importantly- they are always smiling and want to help make your stay enjoyable. They are all empowered to solve any problem that may come your way.No one says- this is not my job. On the last morning, our daughter was crying because she didn't want to leave and the waitress expressed genuine concern and caring for her. She even offered to let her move in to her apartment and stay. One night the restaurant was booked and our disappointment was obvious. Three different staff members jumped into action to solve our problem and find us a table. Nothing is too small or insignificant for the hotel staff to quickly try to fix. The views from the pool are also stunning. The bedrooms are modern and chic. Top of the line electronics abound in the bedrooms. The elevators are state of the art. The hotel is around 190 rooms so it has a boutique feel.It is easy to get around and access. The gym has state of the art equipment as well. I would base myself at the hotel on my next trip and use it as a jumping off point to travel the country. It is only fifteen minutes to Tel Aviv, 50 minutes to Jerusalem, and 90 minutes to the North. It is a great place to come back to every night. Oh and did I say that the staff works on remembering your name so that they can greet you personally. Whether you are going for business or a family vacation, as a couple or with friends, you will find everything about the Ritz top of the line. We all miss the hotel and didn't want to leave. The only negative I can mention is that we wish we had stayed there longer but only went at the end of our trip and couldn't change our return ticket. We look forward to returning there on our next visit to Israel and will definitely arrange our schedule so the Ritz Carlton is our home base.
