We stayed with a group from Oak Hall Expeditions and really enjoyed the four-night stay. The location next to the Sea of Galilee is superb. Meals in the nearby hotel were incredible with so much variety to choose from. We felt thoroughly spoiled. The service was good, when needed - the meals are self-service buffet. The chalet room was spacious and comfortable, with efficient air-conditioning. And the sizeable shower was a pleasure to use. The 'Jesus Boat' at the museum is free to visit and well worth seeing.
Group trip well catered for

Stayed here for 5 nights with a church group. The complex was beautiful. The room was beautiful. The room was clean. It had air conditioning. The beds were comfortable. The whole place was calm and peaceful and made for a great nights sleep. We were half board. The meals take place across the path in the hotel. You are flooded with variety and options. (The only thing to perhaps be aware of is that it is a Jewish run establishment and so they try to do things Kosher which wouldn't be apparent other than that they don't serve tea and coffee at dinner time - as they don't mix dairy with meat) The village is located right on the shore line of the Sea of Galilee so as well as being able to go and see the 1st century boat located at the museum next door, and hop on to the replica Jesus boats that take you across the lake up to capernaum from just a short walk away, you can swim in the Sea of Galilee from just walking out of your chalet. If that doesn't sell it to you then I don't know what would! Haha. I really enjoyed staying here. Not least for being able to write my journal from the comfort of the banana hammocks in the dusk sunshine at the end of the day, with the gentle woodland noises in the background. Bliss.
Tiberias stop in Ginosar

We spent three nights of our Israel trip in the Ginosar village. Nice apartments, simple, but adequate, very close to lake Galilea. Breakfast and dinner in the hotel. Good food and nice personal. Location is superbe; easy to travel to all places around the lake.
Great potential but nothing more

We went there for one night and looking at the pictures online we felt like we're going to have so much fun there and enjoy the time spent in our room. The complex is very pretty and looks like the pictures but the room... let's say we got into the room and got depressed at the same time! It was dark, felt dirty, the furniture are super old and the bathroom made me want to skip taking a shower for a day. Breakfast and dinner were ok and the staff was very nice (you eat at the hotel's dining room and all activities are there as well) but the poor room made us want to go outside for as long as we could, for the wrong reasons.
A little dated

The village part of this kubutz consists of individual lodges with sitting room, bedroom and bathroom. Perfectly OK though a little dated. Excellent power shower. Nice selection of Dead Sea toiletries provided. Meals are taken a short walk away in the main hotel. Very good choice though the dining room is very large and when full (as it was most of the time we were there) is rather noisy. It's a short walk to the edge of the Sea of Galilee. Very atmospheric watching fishermen in the early morning. Wish we had the time to visit the museum with the 2,000 year old boat.
