Stayed here with my husband 9-16th November. Smallish room and bathroom but perfectly adequate for our needs. Very clean everywhere. Basic breakfast, not much to choose from and no variety on any day but it was high quality and could have as much as you wanted. Tea/coffee/chocolate available 24/7 with jar of cookies to help yourself to. Special mention for Carmel who gave lots of advice and also complained to Dan Tours for me as their driver was very rude and did not give the correct information, he told us the first day that the his bus was not hop on/off but only a 2 hour tour. When I mentioned this to Carmel, she called their office to find out and told me that the driver should not have said that to us and complained on our behalf. Went to take the tour the following day, same driver, same rudeness but he let us on the bus with but I did hear him tell other passengers when they got on it was only a tour and not hop on/off!!
Lots of beaches to pick from but be aware the sun goes down quite early, all the beaches said that swimming was prohibited but everyone swam. It was 12 shekels for sun bed for the day.
Plenty of restaurants/cafes to pick from. Shaken in port area (looks like tpw on the sign) is excellent value. Also Goocha on Ben Gurion and Benny the Fisherman in the port excellent places to eat. All food was of high quality. Service was hit and miss, typical Israeli manners from some restaurant staff. Took the bus to Jerusalem from the bus station, 18 shekels one way, buy the ticket on the bus no.480 they go every 10 minutes or so and took approximately 40 minutes.
Be prepared for maybe long wait/queues at Ben Gurion airport, the security lines of which there are a few, can be long. 3 hours minimum check in time is normal however our guide said that in the summer months, passengers are told 5 hours!
