Good, but...

Overall, we thought the Prima Music was a good value, and ideally located to sample the delights of Eilat away from the central city, which increasingly looks like Las Vegas On The Sea. This is definitely the funky part of town. Bus tours frequent this hotel, mostly Russians. The breakfast is pretty good, with freshly prepared omelettes and, on Friday, squeeze-your-own orange and grapefruit juice. The hotel buffet for dinner is pretty plain, but that is OK since across the road is the best seafood place in Eilat, The Last Refuge. I have eaten seafood all over the world, and my whole fish there, oven baked with vegetables, was one of the finest meals I have ever eaten. There are several problems with the hotel. First, we were there in May when the Sun doesn't set until after 8 pm, yet they kicked us out of the pool area at 6 pm. We would have liked to stay longer and don't understand why they have to close it so early. Second, there is only one person in the lobby to book tours, and she doesn't arrive till after 9 am when it is already getting late to book anything (she was very good but if there were five couples waiting to book tours, it would take an hour). They need at least two tour people to serve a hotel of this size. Third, they say that the hotel beach is the "Village Beach" which is somewhat misleading, since "Village Beach" is just a bar on the beach -- a tiny beach covered with chairs and mobbed with people -- sometimes packed like sardines in a can. The beach next to it, Veranda Beach, is much nicer and less crowded. Fourth, the hotel activities bulletin is not available in English. We never knew what was going on. Be sure to see the downstairs room. It is from the 1800s, with intricate wood carving and wall murals from Paris of that era. Very strange since the rest of the hotel is modern. The room should be in a museum.

This review is the subjective opinion of the hotel's guest and not of inisrael.com
