lovely stay

Hotel review by Lisa , United States in 24 July 2015

We had a great time! The rooms are "fine" if you have never been to Israel, expect a glorified super 8 with new sheets. However. the atmosphere and all of the other amenities and the food and the people MORE than make up for it!!! The beds were plenty comfortable and as I said, we had a great time ...

Hotel review by Alison, United States in 29 January 2015

This is a great place although a bit pricey. The guest house area is lovely with great views, places to stroll and a very nice spa. The use of the spa with its Dead Sea water is at no extra charge but they also offer all kinds of treatments which are quite reasonable. The kibbutz itself specializes ...

Hotel review by Robert, United States in 16 July 2013

We love the Ein Gedi Hotel and have stayed here many times over the years, since 1971. The spa is so much fun and is included in the hotel fees. It's a blast to float in the Dead Sea and put on the Dead Sea Mud! This is our highlight of every trip to Israel! The Arugot rooms are wonderful, with comf...

Hotel review by Sean, United Kingdom in 29 December 2008

Great Place, great location, great food and fantastic for hiking trails. Thought both hotel and spa was 'tired' and could really do with an update. For this level of cost will probably stay in one of the more upmarket hotels when next at Yam Ha Mavet....

Hotel review by Phyllis, United States in 28 December 2008

Overall magnificent accommodations. I stayed with a friend and we both enjoyed the ambiance, the location, the nearby hikes, spa, etc. It was a respite in the midst of painful situations in Israel and the Palestinian territories, and a testament to kibbutz work and history....

Hotel review by Bo, Germany in 28 December 2008

Very nice and interesting experience. There was only one problem: We stayed three people in one apartment/room. The double bed was very good but the extra bed (made from a chair) was a disaster!! I have never slept on such a bad bed! Please improve this and everything will be perfect and beautif...

Hotel review by Jean, United States in 28 December 2008

The resort is in a beautiful location. The rooms are pleasant and clean. I loved the garden area all around. My only problem was that I didn't realize their would be so many steps to certain rooms, unfortunately the one we were in. I was travelling with my mother who has a hard time with steps and w...

Hotel review by Olivia, France in 28 December 2008

We were in the Botanical Garden -Standard room type. the only bad thing in these rooms is that there is no space between the toilets and the restrooms. So if you don't put a lot of towels on the ground, the bathroom can easily be full of water. Otherwise, everything is good : employees, locations, ...

A Tribute to Ein Gedi

Hotel review by Margit, Austria in 28 December 2008

It is a lovely place and one can see that the staff and the kibbutzim do a lot to maintain the place and provide a friendly and relaxing atmosphere for the guests. What I would suggest: better planning and organization of timing and placing people at dinner time to allow for less packed and "host...
