Rebecca and Maurice, Kudos and yasher koach on an outstanding Pesach program! From beginning to end, the stay at the Pine Cliffs was truly a 5 star experience. Having to option to reserve at an outstanding and beautiful hotel with a smaller program is exactly what we had wanted. Pine Cliffs is a magnificent hotel with an attentive, gracious and experienced staff; we could have said"Dayenu." But Rebecca and her staff took this to another level of expertise and refinement. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. We were thrilled with the a la carte menu service for it afforded us the option of choosing our preference for vegetarian and fish meals. As an event planner, I notice the"small details" and, as I mentioned to Rebecca, it was lovely to see different table flower arrangements for dinner, lunch, breakfast. Walking into dinner or lunch to be greeted by waiters holding trays of sherry for one meal and sangria at another was delightful. A coffee and liquor bar with service and attentive staff who served guests outside on the patio as well as within the bar area added to the wonderful ambience. These may be small details, but they demonstrate the level of excellence this program strove for and reached.
Lastly, we were thrilled to be seated with a very interesting and warm group of people who we now call friends.
We have been traveling for Pesach for many years and have been to premier programs in the US, Mexico, Europe and Israel, but KNY's program exceeded them all. This thought was echoed by anyone we spoke to who had been on a KNY program this year, either Pine Cliffs or Cascais: best Pessach ever!
Our one complaint? KNY should do Succot also !
