Service here is excellent. Salah on Front Desk deserves special mention, as he went out of his way to give us lovely rooms after my request for a twin room had not been met.
Unfortunately even great service and a nice room do not compensate for the appearance of a 1960s breeze block construction and lawns filled with plastic chairs for garden furniture. Or a 'private beach' consisting of gravel and yet more plastic chairs. So much wasted potential. This could have been an inviting beach had they set up some facilities such as a café, comfortable seating, showers etc.
We only had breakfast there, and while there was a very good choice on offer, much of it was pre-cooked and not fresh. Eg pancakes were lying in huge trays, whereas they had been cooked to order in other places during our stay in Israel.
We had just come from Ein Gedi kibbutz, where for the same money we had enjoyed spectacular views, wonderful food and great facilities. Unfortunately Nof Ginossar proved to be no competition.
