We decided to visit the Setai up North. The rooms are beautiful with the private swimming pool but that’s where it ends. If this cost $400 per night we would have been very happy, however at $700/night you expect more. The service was terrible, the amenities in the room are all run down. The ashtray outside was not clean, the bed and pillows were okay. I expected much more. Not the most comfortable. Room service was terrible. Took over an hour and half to get our food and the food was below average. I think maybe it is due to low staff during corona, upkeep poor, service poor, overall experience average. For the price I would not recommend. I am sure there are better options to be found.

we stayed in a "kineret villa" with private pool. Very large comfortable room, large terrace and superb pool. The spa is excellent, including the gym, the jaccuzi pool and the treatments. The food is delicious. The service is flawless.

The hotel is in a great location. Room service was good. Lunch and dinner were rich with a variety of choices. In the dining room you have an excellent and kind bundle, especially Michal who manages a shift in the dining room and a manager named Hamudi. The only review I have is: The currents in the pool did not work and despite many requests to repair the system nothing was done. Nor did they get back to us to say why the system was not fixed, which is a shame
