With school starting, my adventures have been somewhat limited so I am going to write about prior adventures. Our summer vacation included a weekend stay at Kibbutz Lavi. We stayed in the new wing which was beautiful. The hotel is clean and well-run. There was ample food that was satisfactory, not outstanding. There is a pool - again it served its purposes but nothing stellar.
One should be aware that the hotel caters to a religious crowd including strict rabbinic kosher supervision (Mehadrin), a central timer that shuts off all room lights on Friday night and Saturday afternoon, and separate hours for swimming (there are also hours of mixed swimming). As a result, the hotel, especially on the Sabbath, attracts almost an entirely religious crowd, including many ultra Orthodox families with large families.
If you do go, be sure to take a tour of the Kibbutz (if there is no scheduled one during your stay, request one). Our tour guide was an American kibbutz member who moved to the Kibbutz in 1969 - an old time Zionist!
