We had been at this boutique hotel (only 100 rooms) under different management and wanted to return and check out this part of Israel after a really wet winter.
The Kinneret was beautiful, the staff welcoming and the hotel was quiet after a tumultuous Passover. My wife and I wanted a quiet couple of days just to chill out.
The Pros - quiet, well furnished public area, friendly and helpful staff, creative chef, heated outdoor pool
The Cons - rooms could be equipped a little better with larger beds and coffee maker, the pool opens at 9 AM! for those interested in starting the day with a swim before breakfast - not doable, checkout 11 AM!, between opening the pool first at 9 and check-out at 11, forget about getting a swim on checkout day. Conversely, besides having the earliest checkout, they have the latest check-in, at 3 PM! So you barely swim the day you check-out or the day you check-in.
The breakfast was a little meager compared to other 5 star deluxe hotels.
Despit the Cons, we did have a very restful weekend and the manager told us they are intent on seeing to the issues we raised.More
