“Great potential disappointing place”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Although the rooms are equipped with a kettle and microwave but there is a big but! Minimum was put in coffee, tea, sugar Fork and spoon, dish!!! Too bad the location is very good place but the total cultivated in a neglected Breakfast needs improvement

Located in the Tiberias area of Israel on the Yam Kineret (Sea of Galilee for Christians) this Kibbutz is one of 260 Kibbutzim's in and around all of Israel. Created out of the Zionist Youth Movement around 1938-39, now prioritized, they are great accommodations for families traveling with young children and tour groups. MA'AGAN'S majestic views of the "sweet" sea waters of the Kineret is a sight for sore eyes in Israel whose lands tend to be parched and aired. Our tour group family members found the rooms to be clean by Israel standards. Great AC, very comfortable beds provided your not over 6 feet tall...comfortable in size which was nice after some of the cramped rooms we stayed in. Good Israel food buffet, Internet (free in lobby,in room for a fee but can be negotiated) big beautiful swimming pool, bar, a mini market which was nice for stocking some minor essentials and cool drinks and a very large common area with huge windows over looking the Kineret. The grounds need a bit of "grooming". Discarded trash and debris is everywhere as well as plant life looking a bit neglected but again, "Dorothy...this isn't Kansas any more" and this tends to be common in Israel as it is a bit of a cultural thing. Shiatzu massages are available by appointment (did not experience this so I don't know about quality). Prices are bit over priced but they are all over Israel. A five star facility it is not but kids can run around on the beautiful lawn (day or night) while parents relax and "recover" since summers in Israel can be really hard on the body due to summer temperatures. This type of accommodations cater to the masses. Our tour group was over 40 people so do keep that in mind. With over 148 rooms spaciously sprawled out over the many acres, you really don't feel crowded. This agricultural and tourist Kibbutz can become a favorite for families traveling Israel's Golan Heights area.

We stayed here as part of a tour group. The accommodations were not extremely modern, but were very nice and comfortable. The buffet for breakfast and dinner provided plenty of selection and lots of great all-you-can-eat food. Wireless access is free, but only available in the main lodge. If you are lucky enough to have a room close to the main lodge (like us) then you can pick up the signal. The balconies and grounds were beautiful. Some of the lodges on the main level had a walk out area that allowed you to grill outside as well. We saw lots of family doing this. There was a grocery store on site as well.

.great location, good service. too bad too many cigarettes buds on the small beach, and those were not cleaned even after we asked. very suitable for a family with young children. especially nice when the place is only third full. however, the 5 star price of 1455nis per night for one family room is far too high for what is offered.

This place is beautiful, modern clean rooms, sort of Ikea- style furnishings. Every room opens to a grassy yard or balcony, peacocks wandering the property, lots of tropical gardens with banana trees, etc, magnificent views of Sea of Galillee everywhere. The swimming pool is great, especially for kids, as is the hotels beach. There is a petting zoo for kids also. You get a free canoe trip at Ron Roy Canoe, close by, and that's also nice. The breakfast is standard Israeli style, with eggs, cheeses, salads, bread. Dining room has great views, but although breakfast is tasty and fresh, it isn't fancy and is served in plastic dishes, no fancy plates....also the coffee is not so good, only instant, but really, those are just small complaints....it really is a nice place, especially with children, and close by to lots of good sites.

Room Tip: Some rooms come with a barbeque grill, if you want to grill, ask for that, because grilling is only...
