We have just come back from a wonderful two night stay at Zayit HaMidbar. Myself, my husband and our two year old daughter stayed in the African Cabin, while my parents and my brother stayed in the Castel. Both types of accomodation were luxurious and comfortable, not to mention extremely clean and well kept.
We were meant to be travelling with my sister in law and her three children, who unfortunately had to cancel at the last minute due to ill health, so we took along my parents and brother instead. It was unfortunate that they missed out as this is the most perfect family holiday. There are lots of things to keep the children entertained on site, including a small farm, great walks, a trampoline and night time camp fires. That said, my parents were also very impressed with the place and were delighted to be there and found it very relaxing and peaceful.
We ordered a delicious meal from a local caterer for the the first night and made our own meal on the second night. Both were eaten on the huge balcony of the castle with our camp fire burning in the garden. Our breakfast was prepared and delivered to our room by Mirna our delightful host. She could not have been more welcoming and obviously works very hard to make everyone's stay very special.
I highly recommend Zayit HaMidbar as the perfect place to tour the Negev or even just to stay and relax there for a few days.
