Rooms were clean and decent; we had a suite in a building close to the lobby. There are quite a few buildings here. Food was excellent and the hotel's chef is a good one. We were here for a program over the passover holiday so I don't know what the hotel is like the rest of the year. Staff were very friendly. We enjoyed the kibbutz; the kids can run where they like and there is a lot of grass and a very good pool which was heated over the holiday (i'm told it's not usually heated). it's not a luxury property (but not bad at all) and I would advise getting a suite if you want to be sure you are going to be happy with your room and to be close to the lobby. Also be sure and let them know you want the ground floor if you mind walking up a flight of stairs to your room. Bring electrical adapters because no dual voltage outlets and also no outlets in the bathroom. We went to the dairy farm nearby to milk cows and feed calves and see how things work; Manara is a nice attraction 15 minutes away with a cable car, alpine slide and trampolines. Near the hotel is kayacking (but not for kids under 10 and the water is very cold); a walkway along the Jordan River and a play area with ropes way up high that you cross wearing a harness. There are also some small play areas around the hotel and in the kibbutz which you can walk around in. Good place to spend an overnight or just to chill out for a few days with one activity a day nearby and then sit around on the grass or at the pool. They have good meeting facilities -- a nice place for a retreat.
