We arrived at the Shalom & Relax Hotel after 19 hours of travel. We were greeted by Avi, the Reception Manager, with open arms. We were travel weary and so was our little Chihuahua, Butch and just wanted to go to sleep. While we checked in, Avi gave us fresh cherries and Max Brenner chocolates and iced cold water. We had several pieces of luggage for our more than three week stay in Israel. We were given a lovely room facing the park, with a very roomy shower and deluxe amenities. The king size bed was very comfortable. After a good nights' sleep, we went down to an astounding breakfast buffet with fresh squeezed citrus juices, apple & carrot juice, hot oatmeal, granola, various fruit syrups (the date syrup was my favorite), an assortment if fresh, crisp salads (yes, Israeli's eat salads for breakfast!), smoked fish, Capresse salad, grape leaves, fresh cut fruit, mixed fruit salad, a large assortment of fabulous breads, sweet rolls an assortment if teas and coffee, latte or cappuccino! At 5:00pm the hotel presents a wonderful Happy Hour for guests to mingle, drink champagne and nibble on tasty hors d'ouvres, complimentary. The hotel provides a beach towel and flip flops in a tidy cloth bag for the beach plus water. Eti, the hotel manager fell in love with my dog, Butch and he bonded with her. I have never been in such a friendly hotel. We met many international guests and made good friends quickly. The beautiful landscape roof deck had stunning views of the Mediterranean with soft breezes. The staff, Simona, Daisy, Keren, Ramona, Yuveal, Oren and the rest were superbly attentive. The hotel is very gay friendly and pet friendly. My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary and were surprised by a wonderful bottle of wine, a box of chocolates and a surprise gift of Israeli soaps and oils. We felt very special the entire 22 day stay. We cried upon our departure and vowed to return to this exceptional and special hotel. Our highest recommendation! Do not consider staying anywhere else in Tel Aviv!
