We came because the price was approximately half of a hotel, but not very cheap, about 100 euro including breakfast.
ACCOMMODATION: there are units with a very tiny bedroom. The patio with chairs and a nice grass patch outside kind of makes up for it. The unit looks very outdated and in bad need of a paint job. The bathroom was very small and in bad condition. During our stay, no one enter to clean the unit. Outside was a "pack" of starving cats which stared all the time maybe we will throw something to eat. Some people didn't seem to mind - for us it was very unpleasant.
THE BREAKFAST: considering the low cost of the hotel kind of OK. Fresh vegetables but no fruits. A lot of sorts of teas.
THE BEACH: It is 7 kms away from the hotel (but if don't have a car you can't get to). The facilities are OK. However going into the sea is tricky as there is mud and people tend to sink and slip in the mud. The life guard has an easy motto: Try to lie on your back. Other people didn't seem to mind. However the kibbutz could have managed to create a safe corridor into the sea as we have seen in other hotels and a shuttle.
All and All : This kibbutz has a great asset and it doesn't maintain it properly.
