“disappointing, not recommended.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2013

we arrived at the hotel and received one out of two rooms which were reserved. the room smelled from cigarette smoke. there was even an ash tray on the desk. we were moved to one larger room for the whole family - family room - instead of 2 rooms. during our entire stay - every time we opened the air condition we smelled cigarettes! it was awful. the sofa bed for our kids was terrible.no internet - not even in the lobby. the food was o.k. and the staff was very nice, front desk very nice, dinning room staff very helpful. good location. nice pool.but - to sum it up... not coming back soon...

Room Tip: try a room with a porch because otherwise you will fell claustrophobic and no place to hang your bat...

We had stayed at this hotel multiple times. It is pretty average. The food is always good but there's only one buffet for all meals. The pool is standard, but big enough. Location is great, just a couple of minutes from the boardwalk.

we stayed durin Shavuot this year (may 2013). the rooms were small but recently renovated (not perfect but pretty good). the bathroom revnovation is really good and includes a big shower insted of a bathtub.
this hotel is all inclusive and the food was mostly good (and i am very strict about food). some specific meals weren't as good as others. the breakfast on saturday morning was surprisingly rich (it usualy isnt in Israeli hotels). they do reuse leftover food but mostly in a sofisticated way.
the all inclusive includes soft drinks and alcoholic bevredges wich are mediu, to low quality.

the things that botherd us were the fact that you can't get all the kinds of food at any given time (pool bar is open 10-18, loby bar is open 16-24 and so on) and u cant ger anything to eat after dinner ends. the second problem, was the noise, the hotel is very family oriented and as a couple we didn't care much for the noise but i'm sure that if we were with had children we would have enjoyed the facilities more.
also my dad had a great massage that was relativly cheap in the hotel spa.

We had no idea that "all inclusive" meant so much delicious food. The self-service dining room never failed to serve a wide variety of salads, cooked foods, wok-fried dishes, soups, pastas, ethnic dishes, cooked vegetables and more. Beer, wine, soft drinks and juices were also included. Dessert choices always included fresh fruit.

We didn't try the afternoon tea but the bar in the evening served free drinks (good brands of alcohol).

The pools are glorious and there are plenty of lounge chairs. Morning activities around the pool drew everyone to exercise and "dance" to the music.

Our first room didn't face the pool. We asked to please be moved to a nicer room and the desk staff took care of the change immediately.

Two complaints:

There is no free Internet in the rooms.

The elevators were out of service more than in service!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the pool!

Yes, the food was the best my family and I have ever tasted in a hotel. My son-in-law is a caterer and he was impressed with the constant high standard of the buffets.
Much else about this all-inclusive hotel is also quite good: an excellent location just a few minutes walk from the beach, a great swimming pool and adequate rooms. However the fitness, sauna, jacuzzi and outdoor courts though still usable are in need of renovation. The staff in the fitness/spa are hospitable and friendly in a natural way.
The hotel does have one glaring problem: the staff in the bar and the breakfast coffee corner (the same people). A group of grumpy and constantly irritated young people who never smile. No leisurely, friendly chit chat here. Good morning and good evening are not in their vocabulary. You just get an aggressive stare and a bark of "what do you want". Then they serve you without looking at you.
To be honest, I did see an old European lady start to tremble when she picked up her plastic cups from the bar. Perhaps the hotel does not see Europeans as a target group. Anyway, the ones I spoke to will not be coming back.
The bottom line. This hotel ticks all the right boxes except one, If you place a lot of stock in hospitality and friendliness you may come away disappointed.

We spent a week in Sport Club Hotel, attending the Classic Chamber music festival. Usually we are spending our vacations in Isrotel Lagoona, but this hotel is undergoing renovations so we were relocated to Sport Club.
We were very disappointed with the Sport Club hotel. This is a good hotel if you are young, sportsman and healthy. If you want to sit in the lobby and read a book, no chance, A huge screen will show you the sport channel all the time, but without voice, only background music so what you really have is annoying moving pictures all the time.
If you happen to be on non-sugar diet, you can forget about any variety of dessert after lunch and dinner or the 4 afternoon tea. You will get 3 times a day, 7 days a week the same cake. Try to say something about this, or ask for another sort of non-sugar cake, and Yana at the bar will advise you: "go and complain!".
The food is cooked with a lot of oil, which to my humble opinion does'nt suit the awareness concerning healthy food, which is so common nowadays.
We could not stop comparing this hotel to the Isrotel Lagoona which is so hospitable, tries to make you feel at home, and the public relations manager Marlena is so attentive to all your requests and needs. Our next vacation will certainly be at Isrotel Lagoona. No more Sport Club!

We stayed at this hotel for the Israman event as this was the venue for the event. We have stayed at the neighboring hotel, Isrotel Royal Garden, many times, but decided to go with the Sport Club, since we had heard that it had been completely renovated. We ordered a family room and had expected a larger than usual room, but what we in fact got was a large living room, a generous bedroom, a very big bathroom and separate toilet for the living room--this is what most other hotels call a mini or junior suite. The room was clean and pleasantly decorated, it has a small refrigerator for your own stuff (not pre-loaded with $9 snacks), a safe, two TV sets and everything else needed for a pleasant stay.
The hotel is a all-included which offers three meals a day, snack and drinks throughout the day and what not. We were particularly impressed with the breakfast and the dinner, but less so with the lunch. The service was excellent and so was security. The hotel has two pools with nice decks around and all other sports facilities and spa as well.
The hotel is located a few minutes from the beach, second row of hotels from the beach.
The only real thing that annoyed us was that the elevators were very slow and that the hotel doesn’t seem to have enough parking.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the pool
