Hashgacha

They are certified Kosher from the local Rabbanut. (Ein Bokek)
The meat is NOT Glatt.
The chicken is Rabbanut Mehadrin.
The cooking is Bishul Yisrael according to the Rema, not the Beit Yosef.
The vegetables are Gush Katif. The cabbage is NOT.

The Mashgiach says, the hard cheeses are not Mehadrin.

Breakfast:
- Breads, pastries, cakes - parbaked or raw frozen , Chasam Sofer Petach Tiqwa
- Packaged yogurts and puddings - some are B"datz . Rubin, but be careful some could be cholov nochri, check packaging
- Grapefruit and Orange Juice from Spout - PriMor ,Chasam Sofer Petach Tiqwa
- Hard Round Cheeses on cutting board- Cholov Nochri
- Gvina Levana, cottage cheese - .....................
- Feta, Bulgarian Cheeses - He claims Belz
- Some type of butter spread- some are cholov nochri
- Fish- He says B"datz ( he says B"datz about alot of things....), but its usually just herring and mackarel
- Tuna - He says B"datz, but there is usually some type of leafy veggie in there i.e. parsley
- Instant Coffee Machine - Cholov Yisroel of some rabbi in Ashkelon
- Espresso Station - Milk is usually Mehadrin Tnuva, you can look at the bag (Yes milk comes in a 5 gallon bag)
- Hot Stations- Not really sure, they serve dinner there also which is fleishig, I'm guessing they switch the stations, but i wouldn't....
- Produce - He says B"datz ( he says B"datz about alot of things....)
- Cereals- some are cholov nochri


Lounge:
Basically the same cakes and fruits as breakfast.

GOOD NEWS:  I am currently at the property, and can confirm, after speaking to the person who is in charge of Starwoods here, that they have changed their mind, and WILL be remaining!! He said that they have yet to remove the notice from the website.
