This classic hotel is amazing AND it could use some updating. The room I had was quite comfortable. The bathrooms nicely up to date. The room was spacious & the bed wonderful. The breakfast buffet is an OUTSTANDING Israeli buffet. The beach access is very nice.
The staff were ALL friendly & helpful, especially the head concierge, Jonathan G. He arranged escorts for me on arrival & departure through Ben Gurion Airport. The escort service was pricey & worth EVERY PENNY!! Otherwise I doubt I could have survived the airport as a somewhat mobility challenged 60-something traveling alone.
As to the updating I suggest: improve inadequate electric outlets for multiple electronic items, improve signage for a somewhat confusing layout & elevator service, and improve handicapped access.
I will definitely stay here again!!
