Nir Etzion Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hof Carmel B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Situated in a quiet environment not far from the main city, it is mainly appropriate for the very orthodox Jews. Very poor lunch even though the breakfast is rich and "interesting". Not really recommended to the non-orthodox.

Room Tip: The top floors might have a better view

This is the third time I've stayed at the hotel over the past few years.
It is getting more religious each time...
basically ultra religious guests.
I went because part of our group eats only glatt kosher.
Nice hotel. Nice rooms. very cold during the winter nights.
Good service.
food is good.
Pool is cold in the Winter.

Room Tip: Take rooms with view towards the sea.

We had a family weekend at the Hotel and had a wonderful time. The room was clean and comfortable and the food was plentiful and delicious. The hotel is a religious one and the atmosphere for Shabbat very relaxing and enjoyable

All of the garden rooms are newly renovated. The meals as usual are very high quality with great variety. All of the staff are pleasant and helpful. The pool, the environment, the view of the Mediterranean...well, they speak for themselves...no questions there.

All of this at a healthy price.

Great place to stay..Lovely hotel and facilities.. Weird to charge for coffee especially as not specially good-but meets Israeli standards..Staff basically friendly... Sigalit marvelous-has learnt PR over the years and Neta also great at reception,,Nurit in the back a bit sour..Highly recommended...if only the word "customer service " would be etched into their bones it would be even more pleasant..Anyway compared to other Hotels they perform very well...l

An essential part of our summer for many years has been our 3-4 days stay at the Nir Etzion Hotel in the Carmel Mountains just south of Haifa overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
The hotel boasts an great pool, fantastic cuisine with a range of tastes and flavors to suit just about every member of the family.
The lobby offers a snack bar (which sometimes over stretches its capability and has unrestricted waiting times) and unrestricted free wifi access.
The area is great for touring with Haifa to the north and Zichron Ya'akov to the south with many stops in wine country in between.

The hotel was nice, we were staying over Shabbat so we needed to find a religious place and this is the most advertized "religous places" near Haifa. (Note to the one comment on seperated swim time...if you did any research you would know it was a religous hotel so please don't complain about the religious rules that come with it) But yeah, the staff was not very pleasant, rude in fact.
We were excited about the "zoo" we were told we could get in for free, as we had kids. We were told it was a small petting zoo but we checked out 4 days early due to the discusting cruel nature of it. I will never even drive up that mountain again! They had MONKEYS! In a petting zoo, you couldn't pet them of course but their cage was in humane, it was a like a really bad back yard breeder mixed in with trailer trash. It was DISCUSTING, I cannot stress this more, DO NOT support this inhumane place. It is all run by this kibbuz and to think of all these poor animals, Unbelieveable. GROSS!!!!! I don't see how what they do is not illegal.

Room Tip: If you care about animals stay FAR FAR AWAY!!!
