Not lacking for activity, this hotel is on the shore of the Sea of Galilee with a pool, very nice spa, and a shoreline which you can walk. You can also rent bikes up the street or walk along the pier.
This hotel does observe Kosher requirements, so not all food and beverage are available all the time, including limits on bread and beer from Friday evening to Saturday evening. Still it's all amazing whether you are religious or not. The array of options is vast and event the most picky eaters will find great food.
Rooms are average but the bathroom was gorgeous. VERY nice. You should note that room service in terms of cleaning is not the same as you find in the West. Your bed will be made but towels are not replenished, particularly wash cloths. You get one, and if you put it on the floor you do not get another (this was true in all hotels we stayed in more than one night). Additionally on the first night, the soap, conditioner & shampoo were Dead Sea mineral products in the bathroom, which we used and loved. Once used, those were replaced with single bottles of "dollar general" items and were not replaced if used. The rooms seemed to have thin walls, and we were privy to a wailing cat that kept our whole group up for several evenings.
Don't waste your time purchasing wifi in your room. It is so slow and sporadic you will be frustrated by the wasted money, unless you go to the lobby where it seems to work better. HINT: Due to the observance of the Sabbath, wifi is free on Friday night in the lobby.
There is a very nice patio which we gathered with friends each night and enjoyed local wine and beer. The wait staff were very nice, and accommodating. The lobby has ample places to sit and enjoy a pot of hot tea or coffee. It was beautiful with a gorgeous view of the Sea of Galilee.
The boardwalk seemed a little sketchy at night but it did have a McDonalds which for people who are not observing dietary restrictions of the Sabbath, this was very helpful to get a latte in the evening.
Would I stay here again? Yes! the sunrise over the Sea is worth the price of the room! Absolutely spectacular!
