This hotel turned out to be better than expected, which is always a lovely surprise.
The location is fantastic. Right across the street from the beach club, and walking distance to many things including the city shuttles and busses right around the corner. The only reason I wouldn't give it a 5 star rating is because it is a no frills place so don't expect Four Seasons, but it did exceed expectations.
I love Israel but the customer service is different than most other places, in that they don't fall all over themselves to please everyone. That being said, they were friendly and helpful (when asked), the rooms were clean, and the views were great. Breakfast was lovely and had great options, although it seems they don't have quite enough room for everyone at once. But it wasn't a problem.
We also really enjoyed the rooftop deck, lounging under the umbrella and watching the ocean, taking a little afternoon nap every day. Barely anyone was up there so I almost hate to mention it but I will anyway. You're welcome.
Overall I think this place is great. The bathrooms are tiny but they have everything you need. I recommend the 5th floor and ask for a room with an ocean view. We were 2 rooms from the front of the hotel and with the angle of the design, we had a great ocean view. Also great views from the hallway on each floor, and of course from the roof.
Bed was extremely comfortable and there was a flat screen TV with lots of channels.
Great discovery and have already recommended this place to some relatives and friends. Would definitely stay here again.
