This hotel is architecturally wonderful. It sits on the edge of the crater (not really a true crater but that doesn't matter), and offers a magnificent view of this geographic site. The desk agent who checked us in was curt and spoke so fast about amenities that it was difficult to feel welcome. We were taken to our room in a golf cart and was right next to the highway; the wind whistled through the sliding glass door and when we walked onto the balcony the traffic noise was very loud. Our wonderful bellman, Levi, offered to take us back so we could speak with the director of public relations, Suzan. She checked the system and was able to find us a room set away from the highway and close to the sculpture garden. We were quite pleased. The sculpture garden is truly remarkable; as we walked through the desert we were impressed with the variety of outdoor sculptures and the walk along the crater's edge. Our dinner was very nice, the kosher restaurant has great views and the young service staff is very eager to please. They offer a buffet style salad bar with an enormous selection; there is a choice of three entrees, all very nice, and dessert is included. It is amazing that they can make these desserts without dairy and you would never know it. The molten lava chocolate soufflé was divine! We had spa treatments the next day and the spa is very clean and very well appointed. Massages were perfect and the facial left me feeling five years younger (and my husband said I looked great!) Breakfast is a buffet with the ability to order omelets, etc.; again everything was very well displayed, very tasty and very fresh. Ibex have the run of the property and you can turn a corner and see the family that has made the property theirs; they have no fear of humans but it is best not to get too close as they are wild animals. Take a jeep ride through the crater and go to the highest spot for a view. The crater is 40km long and about 10km wide. The colors in the layers of earth are magnificent. When we checked out we had a lovely young woman take care of us and the director of public relations came out to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Other than the first young woman we met and the first room we were shown we highly recommend Beresheet.
