As an American we welcomed the chance to visit a kibbutz. If you're familiar you might judge the hotel more critically than we did. The room was basic, very clean and comfortable. The lobby was busy and noisy with lots of kids running about (there were parties going on). This might annoy some but we enjoyed being in the midst of Israelis and their regular lives.
Food was fine, nothing to rave about. As part of a group I can't comment on the price or value. (clicked "value" rating by accident and can't remove it. I can't comment on the costs)
What we enjoyed were the grounds and looking out toward Lebanon, seeing the bomb shelters that were such a part of early Israeli life (and still are, Gaza attacked the week after we left). We had a tour guided by a life long resident who did a wonderful job conveying kibbutz life without any sugar coating.
There is a wall in the lobby covered in fascinating pictures from all eras of the settlement. Unfortunately there wasn't one caption, not even in Hebrew. That's a shame I hope they correct as I'd love to have read the story of each of those old photos.
This might be an everyday lodging to Israelis, but we really liked getting a glimpse of a life style we've only read about.More
