I just spent 4 nights at this lovely small hotel with 3 other writers during the intermediate days of Passover. We came from different parts of Israel to work on our own projects and also to spend time together. The Erna Shtarkman Hotel was the perfect place. Each room had a desk as well as a hot water pot, large mugs for coffee or tea, and a small refrigerator, as well as plenty of electrical outlets and good lighting, all necessities for a writing group. There is a pretty garden in the back with comfortable seating, as well as tables and chairs on a patio in the front. The dining room is spotless and airy, and the breakfast was excellent--varied, plentiful, beautifully presented: many kinds of salads, cheeses, eggs, fish, cereal, juices, real coffee (espresso too), dried fruits, Passover pastries, everything you'd expect from an Israeli hotel breakfast but without the over-the-top excess. The hotel is family owned since its founding 3 generations ago, and you can feel the personal care and dedication in every detail. The staff was attentive to our needs and went out of their way to be helpful. The beds were extremely comfortable. Everything was immaculate. The hotel is on a quiet side street a few minutes walk to the beach and a long seaside promenade. It's also a short walk to the main street of the town and its many restaurants and shops. You don't need a car to get around; nor, for that matter, do you need a car to get to Nahariya itself, which you can easily get to by train. I cannot say enough good things about this unique and special hotel. When I came to scout it out several weeks before our retreat, I met a couple who told me they stay there regularly when in the area for business even though their company would pay for more expensive accommodations. Now I understand why. Relatives of mine from the States are coming to visit in May, and we will stay here for the one night we'll be on the northern coast. You don't have to be a writer to appreciate this gem.
