“Not the best but not the worst”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

Last weekend I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights.
The room was nice and sufficient, Bath-tab was a bit small, the pool was OK and for a couple it was just fine.
The service was a reasonable, I had to insist of having a couple's bed and not a double bed (for some reason I was given a double bed).
However, the food was quite bad. No excuse in that field.

We came to this hotel as a group from work as we had no other choise.
The rooms are just OK and the dinner room let you eat just fine and very often you will have to get out side to grab something extra.

We stayed with our four children. They have small bungallow like rooms, with two rooms in each bungalow that have a connecting hallway so you can close the front door and keep the inner doors open (great when traveling with kids). The pool is not huge but great for our young kids.
Great location, very close to the Ice Mall. Parking is not amazing. Our kids could run around without bothering anyone. Food was great, a large variety - very children friendly but also had enough options for adults.
We had a great time and would definitly recommend it to others.

We stayed for the weekend.
The hotel is close to the Ice mall there you can shop from the top brands of Israel.
There are some good coffee shops in the mall as well.
The hotel is 10 minutes from the sea shore.
The food is very average; the hotel maintenance is average as well.

The hotel located next to the marina, which is good since it is close to city center and the beach. If you plan to came by car, better come as early as you can, the parking is very small. The stuff was generaly ok. One time we asked for "DO NOT DISTURB" sign, and they told us they don't have any, and few minutes later I saw some on othe doors. Also we asked that no one will come to our room for cleaning, but still they came. There wasn't eneough towels in the room, and if you want a pool towel, to ask for it one time isn't enough. In some areas there is a very bad smell. The food is good. Walls are thin.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room, ask for a room as far from the pool as you can.

Nice place since it's been not very expensive but very comfortable to stay with a pool and a place to lay on sun near it. The rooms are 2 rooms in a house for 2 different families. In a room tv, bath, Tea set with teapot clean towels. I stayed in a room for 2 with a big double bed. In general the price and the hotel match each other. The hotel is not bad but also not luxury.

The hotel is not just called "village", it in fact is a small village of cottages, each hosting 4 rooms (doors opening to different sides). Every now and then there are tables and benches placed between the cottages, as well as various trees so the whole area surrounding the cottages is shaded.
In the middle of the village there's a pool, divided into three sections (one for infants, very shallow and with sun shade, the second one is for kids, and the third one for adults).
Next to the pool there's an entrance to the main building with reception, lobby and hotel restaurant. Theres free Wi-Fi in the lobby.

We've stayed at Astral Village during Yom Kippur (25/9-27/9 2012)

Hotel was at full capacity.
First thing we noticed - parking space is lacking (there was not enough parking space for everyone, i barely squeezed the car in). The parking "lot" is actually a road surrounding the village inside the fence, with parking slots marked on its side.

The day we checked in it was Yom Kippur Eve, and the dinner ended right before we checked in. The stuff managed to get us some food in take-out trays, but it's not the same as eating in the hotel restaurant.

Once we got to the rooms, we found they were not even ventilated prior to our visit (there was some bad smell in the rooms, probably coming from water drain). I would expect a 4-star hotel to have the rooms cleaned and properly ventilated the same day of check-in.
The rooms are very small, the double bed takes most of the space in the room, so an add-on bed we had for our kid could barely fit and the space we had left to walk around was close to none.
Rooms are equipped with an old (tube) TV, a (very small) refrigerator, wardrobe, small personal safe inside it, writing desk (which we could not even use because there was not enough space with the add-on bed) and an air conditioner.
Theres also a kettle in the room, and when we got there, there were a few tea bags and some coffee.

The hotel has half-board mills (breakfast + dinner).
The food at hotel restaurant is quite good, both breakfast and dinner.
Bummer: they don't serve any hot beverages during dinner :( We used tea/coffee in the rooms, but we only had enough for one evening and the stock was not refilled afterwards (another -1 for rooms...)

Overall:
Rooms are quite poor for a 4-star hotel, so i would say it should have 3 stars.
Food is good.
Location is good. (~750 meters from the beach)
Free internet (in the lobby)
Pool is okay.
Good value for the money.

Room Tip: There's free Wi-Fi in the lobby, but not in the rooms. Might wanna try to get a room near main...
