I came down from Jerusalem on recommendation to use the spa facilities for the day (27th February 2012) - the bus drive down and back was more interesting and pleasant than the spa experience.
After being sent up and downstairs twice as no one seemed to know who I should pay, I finally got handed a towel by an indifferent spa receptionist who could barely be bothered to explain where to go and what to do. There was no robe, no slippers, nowhere to wash/dry costumes; the only changing room was tiny with an L-shaped bench and 3 showers for everyone - and the place was full of elderly guests. The floors and toilets were dirty - I didn't fancy putting anything down. It cost 180 shekels just to be there - and all that included was use of these dirty facilities so I went to the beach, which further up the coast would have been free and altogether more pleasant. Staff generally were rude and indifferent. Lunch was included - and this was good but overall, an experience I will not be repeating - at least not at this venue!
