Ginosar Village, Tiberias

4.0
#2 of 6 in Outdoors in Tiberias
Ginosar Village draws tourists with its annual world music festival and the historical display of a Galilean fishing boat that dates back to the time of Jesus. A group of Labor Zionists founded the village in 1937, at first as a typical wall and tower settlement built to protect the area from Palestinians. Today, the erstwhile farming community focuses mainly on tourism. In the green hilly surroundings of the kibbutz, you can enjoy a wide array of outdoor activities, such as river sailing, horseback riding, and buggy trips across the dunes. The museum occupies a former residence of Yigal Allon, an Israeli politician and IDF general. Planning Tiberias trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • Very quiet and peaceful. Great breakfast! Rooms are a bit spartan. Stayed in the superior rooms.
  • It's very nice place. I love ginosar
  • Excellent place
  • A nice place for families. 1. breakfast is rich and varied. 2. many children's activities, but quite disappointing, for example grilled marshmallows not enough for most kids, leaving most of them pretty disappointed. Or swell, take note of the attached image 3. Large rooms, suites. But for most there is no light on the porch, so that everything is dark. 4. huge lawns, children can run and walk. 5. a small pool too crowded! (August) 6. the descent to the beach, and the tsility, although it is part of the hotel.

  • Sixteen people were on vacation, although the parents paid as a wedding gift when they get charged them again about the room rather than bother to apologize. Second-place maintenance tools in the dining room not clean to say the least, the filthy and sticky, room with shower toilet mold have not clean, no beds in double rooms with two single beds together, slow shower stream, softer mattress mattresses, pool is tiny and it group The beach and heard a baby one stung wasps on Saturday, not one room had a broken shelf in another room, blankets are not only blankets. The hotel is dated and worse not bake, no dining room. Not enjoyed and come back.

The lakeshore and the main street are the top location for many inexpensive hotels; come with a reservation, especially during July and August, when domestic tourists take over.
