anyone know what a CLUB LEVEL UPGRADE would give you here?
Exactly that, a room on a club level.

Just went here during Pesach for 2 nights/3 days with my family.

We used 2x2 Ritz Certs and got upgraded to "One Bedroom Superior Residential Suite" for both rooms which worked out great.

I really really enjoyed the Ritz. Breakfast is a bargain for $20 USD (after 25% discount) and one evening we dined there and it was some of the best food

I have ever had hands down. Got to be some of the best dining experiences in the kosher world IMO. We had the Beef Chateau which is some of the

best I have ever had. That coupled with a great list of wines, appetizers and dessert made for a great experience.

Rooftop pool is also a lot of fun and the Pesach burgers and fries were great too.


Best of all and something I never saw anyone talk about:


Ritz Kids

Children 4-12 have a Kids Club open daily from 12-7/730 PM with a one hour lunch break from 2-3.

It is fantastic. My daughter enjoyed it every single day and they have a schedule with what they are doing everyday and even made sure to slide that sheet

under our room door daily at around 10PM. They paint on canvases, have Ipad stations with educational stuff they do, have a daily Cooking Class where

they go to the chef station and get aprons and hats and learn about foods and make stuff (first day she made salads, second day she made cookies). It

was amazing being able to have her in the Kids Club as we were able to do stuff and she was able to have a great time there as well. This to me now has

become the best vacation spot in Israel when traveling with kids ages 4 and up.

Also, at breakfast they had daily entertainment for kids:

Day 1: a truly amazing balloon maker going from table to table for kids building the most amazing stuff from balloons (not your average guy selling you a dog balloon on the street but a guy building 747's from a balloon).

Day 2: High level face paint available

Day 3: Magician going around doing fabulous tricks at each table

The escort on the golf cart to the beach that has a designated first row section for Ritz clients is also great where you get free beach chairs.



Overall this is a 10/10 for me. Feel free to ask / PM any questions. 
Work hard, Play harder!

I guess it's different on Pesach, but I found the food at one of the restaurants adjacent to the hotel (I think it was the only mehadrin one ) to be superior and cheaper.

Ritz Kids was free with the stay.

During Pesach as per the Mashgiach the restaurant (Fleishig) was Glatt under Rav Mahfud upon inquiry.

There was Papagayo for one which during my stay was way worse then the one in Talpiot.

Pesach breakfast was amazing. I can only imagine the regular year long breakfast to be even better. Well worth $20 p/p.

I can't imagine that being the case, but that would be quite a surprise to me if it was.
