Be careful everyone, it's not a 5-star property, but a strong 4 (or 3.5) with some issues that many actually make you sick. This is my third time at the hotel. I had two great experiences but this time was horrible. My toilet was broken; it required playing with the handle until it stopped running water. Instead is fixing the toilet, I was told by the hotel to play with the handle. 5-star hotel, ha! But, one day I forgot to play with the handle and I left early for a tour. The toilet was running water when I returned 12 hours later. That's criminal in Israel. The hotel equipment, furniture, and decor is aging, you will not feel as though you are in a five-star property. But, you can tell that it was once a nice property, more like an aging museum than a 5-star hotel (the hotel is based upon 1930's Tel-Aviv, but the furniture is 1980s). Next, here is the serious health issue. The hotel pumps out fragrance throughout the hotel. Look up and you will see these fragrance machines, even in the 17th floor. These machines send out a scent that I call stink molecules. The stink molecules make it hard to enjoy your food and the molecules even stuck to my clothes. It's disgusting. If you are sensitive to fragrance be very careful here. On the positive side, I was so nauseated in the hotel that I lost weight as I actually tasted the stink molecules after being immersed in them. I couldn't enjoy the food in the restaurant or the club floor. It was a very expensive diet. In all seriousness, be careful here folks, if you don't like the scent, you may get physically ill here. On the positive side, the location on the beach is wonderful. Good luck here. You've been warned.

I loved this market. It's somewhat small, but it's safe and it has the best selection of artisan handicrafts. I purchased an indigo table cloth and a hand embroidered runner. Some of the souvenirs are cheap, but there are true gems here. I had my taxi cab wait for me. Here is a tip, bring cash, there isn't an ATM in the market. Many of the stalls do not accept Visa.

The location is great. The location is great. Remind yourself when you eat your cold food, cold onion rings and cold Reuben sandwich. You are there for the location. Just the location. This will help you deal with the lousy food you are about to consume. Enjoy the cold, and kind of crappy food, but it's a great location.

The hotel is wonderful but please travelers do not eat any meal other than your complimentary breakfast in the morning. The hotel is wonderful but this restaurant is awful in the evening. For example, on Saturday night, they closed off the restaurant area for no obvious reason other than to make sure that tables remained clean. A few of us doing business here were served food in the dark bar! The waiters turned on the lights every now and then, so that we could see what we were eating. I had the salad with salmon, but of course, the chef forgot the salmon. The meal experience tonight was deplorable. Cold fried calamari. Chicken curry with a faux-curry sauce that resembled tasteless vomit. It was also cold. I was hungry from a long day of work, so I just covered the entire tasteless mess with tabasco. The french fries were cold. I was thinking, I should walk but I'm just hungry and tired. Only eat in the hotel restaurant if you are truly too exhausted to walk across the street. It's a shame that such a great hotel would denigrate its name by serving such abhorrent food. Please take my advice and be careful. Don't waste your money eating this inferior food. It's not worth it.

I finally found someone who I could trust to fix my frozen pipe issue in an honest, caring, reliable, and affordable manner. I had Arc insulate my garage and kitchen, after the builder sold me a home with shoddy insulation. Jay arrived on time for an estimate. He is honest and professional. HIs team kept me informed and during his work, my frozen pipe thawed. When I asked his team for the bill, they said, no worry, just call the office. No hassles. Well done! I highly recommend ARC.
