Check-in was efficient and quick. Staffs were most accommodating, helpful and very kind. The natural spring filled pool was fresh and relaxing; a real treat as was the tranquil... More

We enjoyed a lovely breakfast in the morning and enjoyed our coffee overlooking the water. The hospitality was excellent and the servers were very accommodating. The pool was a real treat... More

It's was our 3rd visit and always amazing to see door handles falling apart, showers barely working , dripping air condition. The staff is really friendly & eager to help/fix/mend but their hands are full... Overall we... More

I have been coming with my family to YMCA Peniel by Galilee for 14 years. For my family this is a retreat and place we treat ourselves to on birthdays and special occasions.
