I just came back from a three day stay at this comfortable, clean and intimate hotel. The staff are calm and friendly and the room was wonderful. Big, great bed, wonderful hygiene products and very clean. The breakfast is the best I ever had and I'm a hotel traveler. It had everything a vegetarian person could wish for. Israeli hotels offer vegetarian breakfasts but the options are endless! There was even live musicians playing music every morning. I will definitely come back!

This hotel isn't without it's flaws, but overall provided good value. Location is great, right outside of the city, which in this case is a good thing. Rooms are great and modern apart for the lack of blackout shades, which is a problem. All rooms except ground floor have ocean views. The beach next to the hotel is undergoing renovations which sucks, but not their fault. Breakfast buffet is awesome, but other than that there is no food at the hotel. Service is good overall. Parking is very limited, but there are other options around the hotel. Some great food and beach activities just feet away from hotel.

This is a well-maintained hotel wth good facilities. There is a terrific breakfast buffet. The hotel is located away from the downtown and hotel district, next to the Coral Beach. There are good restaurants (e.g., Fish Market) and convenience stores nearby. The staff was very accommodating. We stayed one night, went to Petra overnight the next day and returned for one more night. They agreed to keep our luggage for the night we were in Jordan.

It was a nice hotel with a good size room - a king bed and seating area. The bathroom was fine with a tub/shower combo. My room was quiet and had a Red Sea view . The in room coffee maker was just OK, not like the Nespresso machine in other hotels. The Red Sea is right in front with a small swimming area and a covered area to stay out of the sun a bit. The pool was very nice but there was no food or bar service when I was there. the breakfast area and breakfast food was very enjoyable. The front desk personnel were VERY nice, especially the woman on duty. So nice to have professionalism and a “can do” attitude when checking in.

We recently spent a couple of days here. The room was spacious and well equipped. Our patio faced a semi-private pool, however the music blasting from the adjacent "Village Beach" marred the experience.. The bed was comfortable and we were able to sleep well. The breakfast buffet was better than average, with the usual fresh salads, cheeses, baked goods etc. Custom omelettes and excellent coffee enhanced the breakfast.

We came for summer vacation with 3 children, we've got 2 rooms& breakfast. The hotel is accessible. The rooms are big, with balcony, shower, t.v with Yes channels, Nespresso coffee machine and all you need. The hosts are very kind, they give you the feelings that you are in a little family.It's worth every penny/ shekel/dollar/euro/pound you pay.
