I read all the glowing reviews people wrote about this place and then booked it! What a mistake that was. The place is in need of serious renovation, caters for coach parties and hasn't fixed a thing since it was built. Our room was like a motel room in USA, but one of the worst! Two rooms with bedroom as you enter with no table or chair in it and old drapes. Second room was a spare bedroom with two old chair beds which were stained horribly, an old t.v. and a single wardrobe crammed full of spare pillows and bedding with barely space for our coats. Kitchen had fridge and kettle and the bathroom was small and cramped and the floor running with water from the leaking tap which had been leaking for a while because there was black mold behind the sink unit. The room faced a road so it was noisy too. There was wifi in the lobby which was also a bar with abysmal lighting. It was supposed to be the trip of a life time for my husband and I and the reports written on this page were nothing like the place so I don't know what people expect to find when they travel but I certainly didn't expect that! We had booked 4 nights and moved out after the first night and I am going to try and get a refund as it was $125 a night. Food was, I have to say excellent overlooking the Sea of Galilee but again they were catering for the masses on coaches and the place just looked tired. The gardens were wonderful and I imagine in summer very nice to be in but not on the beach as the photo depicted which I saw of the place. You have to go down a long walkway before you get even close to the water. I did not feel safe being in that room at all and spend most of the night coughing from the mold and worrying about if we were safe in our room!
