With the recent changes in Israel, are the crowds thinning out at all? Or still packed?

Also, are there daily minyanim for mincha/maariv as well?

So dubai was "packed" with Israelis?

So these are certainly pretty and some of the flavors are great.

That being said, all in all, it doesn't compare to Ungers donuts at all. Ungers dough is so much better and their custard, cinnamon, and apple fritter can't be beat. Plus they are $1-$2 instead of $5.50 per donut!
they are great, but no sesame. round and round.....

With no less than 3 airlines now offering direct flights from TLV to SEZ, I thought it's worth revisiting the topic.

I've been to Mauritius and it's amazing - great hotel redemptions, and a great Chabad Shalia'h, which provided us with all the food / wine we needed, and we always managed to make a minyan when somehow needed to say Kadish (it was in December / high season).

Sadly Mauritius is still closed for the time being (they require 14-day in-room quarantine).

SEZ has no Marriott hotel besides the famous North Island, where certs can't be used. However there are a few Hiltons etc

Anyone been there lately? Any feedback? Thx!
was there about two years ago.
The Hilton properties are very nice. Silhouette island is gorgeous and they were extremely accommodating with kosher, went above and beyond. The only pain is teh boat ride to and from the island with limtied times. We spent one day on La digue and it was excellent. Also one night on SEZ at the hilton there. It was nice, but the one on Silhouette was nicer. There are beautiful hotels on the main island. We had a local guide drive us around the last day and we stopped by some of the hotels. Ridiculous views, but extremely expensive and not modern luxurious.

Meat bar is the conservative bet, their chef's special is always spot on great steak, and other items are good as well, space is nice and staff are good.

Street has the potential to blow you away, with some really amazing items, especially the specials that David the chef makes (tell him JJ sent you ;) ) but sometimes service can be annoying and they can be busy.
Overheard someone last night say " @jj1000 sent me" the waitress was a bit confused  ;D

the surprise steak was cooked perfectly MR when  went, chicken and waffles were excellent flavor. dirty veal fingers were good, but wouldn't get again. Tripple layer cake was rich, but not as good as waiter made it sound
