"We stayed at the Gordonia for a mini-honeymoon following our wedding. We chose the Gordonia precisely because it’s an adults only, small, private, luxury hotel. It was the perfect, quiet, romantic place to unwind after our wedding. Once you get to Gordonia, there’s absolutely no reason you need to leave! The food is excellent, and all your meals are available in the common area/lobby. Breakfast and dinner are both to-order, and there is a huge table of various salads and hors d’ouevres available while you wait for your food to be prepared. At lunch time, they put out a huge array of delicious foods, available to take anytime you like between noon and five. Anytime of say, nuts and little cookies, as well as espresso and wine are available in the kitchen. All of the food was really delicious. From the moment we checked in, the staff was very friendly, and yet not overly present. They were always available for whatever you needed, but never hovered and always respected your privacy. They called a taxi for us, brought wine to our room, checked in to make sure we were having a great stay. All staff members were nice, professional, sweet, and courteous. The rooms are truly gorgeous. We had a beautiful view and made frequent use of the hot tub (too cold in December for the pool—unless you’re brave like my husband!). I also enjoyed the large tub in the bathroom, and the beautiful rain shower. The bed was super comfy, and the room well-appointed with many thoughtful details. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful. The spa was also great, we both got massages which were excellent. The housekeeping service was top notch. Our door was never knocked on, they always waited until we went to breakfast to sneak in and quietly and quickly tidy up our room. We were traveling with a stuffed bunny, and every day they arranged him in a cute new way, which always made me laugh. Overall the Gordonia was perfect for us—beautiful, attention to detail, wonderful staff, and great accommodations. We only wish we could have stayed longer, but look forward to coming back!"
"Gordonia Prívate Hotel is a hidden gem in the hotel scene in Israel. Situated relatively high in Jerusalem mountains this hotel is only for couples. Each room has its own private pool and hot tube. But more important each room is a pampering experience for the visitors. The experience begins before you arrive to the hotel. You get a call from the hotel asking for your personal preferences regarding the temperature of the room at your arrival, the kind of drinks you prefer in your mini-bar and even the music to be played at your arrival Then you arrive and the check in is done while you seat at the hotel main salon (we will return to the salon later), having a hot (our stay was during the winter time) or cold drink. The salon is the center of the hotel life. You have your breakfast and your meals here. There is a buffet all day long. There are free alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks 24 hours a day. And the best of all is the staff. Always someone is looking after you. Taking care of you. All orchestrated by David, the Hotel Manager who is superb. Definitely looking forward to return"
"It was the best , most relaxing , pampering vacation i have had in years . First off, this is NOT a family hotel . This is a hotel for couples who want to RELAX . Private Hot Tub , Private heated pool , which makes this pool both fun and usable , even when its chilly . Dip in the hot tub then pool then breakfast . The food is vegetarian fish eggs milk. The food was great . Breakfast and Dinner, there's also a all day light buffet . The room was huge , the bathroom had a double shower and a bath tube . All the shampoos and soaps where high end brands We didn't leave the hotel. Finished a book ! If your idea of fun is sleeping in a motel , getting up early , grabbing a quick breakfast and then drive off to hike or go sightseeing , this hotel is probably not for you Its for enjoying . Will definitely go back . "
