From the first welcome at the door and help with our suitcases , the service was superb, particularly at the restaurant. The food was first rate , beautifully presented . Our room was clean and pleasant , as well as quiet , with heart warming views.

If you need total relaxation, Carmel Forest is the place. From reception to the rooms to the staff, courtesy is first rate. Rooms are beautiful, grounds are stunning, food is highest level gourmet quality. Vitaly's homeopathic massage relaxed me right away - he was great. And of course there is that special pine aroma that pervades the entire hotel....

This is about the 20th time we have stayed at the Carmel Spa, but the first where we stayed over the Sabbath. As usual, the rooms are wonderful, the food is excellent, although the "morning coffee wait" could easily be fixed but providing an optional self-operated coffee machine. We checked in on Friday and checked out on Sunday. Regular keys...

Ya'arot Hakarmel keeps being good for years , I have been coming here since ages. The SPA is excellent , has a REAl Hamam which I recommend to take the special Hamam treatment in. Food is very good, and the view is fantastic. Clenliness mangles a bit.

I took my mother to the Carmel forest spa for a relaxing trip. It was a nice stay, the area is beautiful on top of the mountain with a beautiful view. In the spring and summer you can hike and bike outside the hotel in the national park, it was very cold now to do this. They have a list...

The road from the north to the Resort can be frightening - not so bad coming from the south. It was a nice respite when we got there though. Although I wasn't thrilled with the person who was at the reception desk when we arrived, most staff was great. The place smells really nice. The lobby is nice and is...

This Spa Resort was years ago he best in Israel but unfortunately, as my wife and I found out, that was years ago. The receptionist was very good and quickly we got our room which was clean and comfortable, the A/C however insisted on heating... The restaurant was a big disappointment, the variety was poor (very nicely served though) and...

That's the question. There is only one word to describe the level of service you find in hotels in Israel, from 1 to 5 stars: TERRIBLE. However, when you sit at a dinner table in a restaurant at Carmel Forest, you are not expecting to have your main course literally thrown in front of you, while you are still eating...
