Highlights were the customer service (the staff all went out of their way to make our family feel welcome), the breakfast (big spread of tasty Israeli/ Mediterranean food including absolutely delicious pastries, roast vegetables, cheeses etc) and providing a bag with water and towels to take to the beach.
There is a rooftop terrace where you can relax which is especially useful for families. It was mostly empty when we were there. There are also free high quality drinks and snacks between 5pm and 7pm each evening (they call this happy hour.)
The location is fantastic - less than a 5 minutes walk to the beach through a nice park crossing one (busy) road. The park has really good kids play equipment for all ages.
If you’re looking for a pool this is a short walk (maybe 10 minutes mostly by the beach) to the iconic Gordon Pool. It has a salt water length pool, a kids pool and a toddler play pool. Better than any hotel pool.
In addition it gets all of the basics right that boutique hotels sometimes struggle with. The beds were comfortable a (even the extra sofa bed for the kids), the air con worked well and the shower was hot and high powered.
Be aware if you have the extra bed in the room the room is a little small.
