Mohammed from reception was very nice, he gave me a room upgrade and a late checkout, the hotel is very well maintained and very relaxing, just a little advice or request if they can add evening programs like belly dancers and bands like other hotels in area

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Superb facility on the shores of the Dead Sea. Room upgraded from main building to a room in one of the smaller poolside structures. Sea view from balcony made sitting out there a pleasure. Full breakfast buffet with the room. Several pools to choose from and easy access to the Dead Sea itself. Service, room, grounds, food and facility in general all first class. Really can’t think of anything but positive to say about the hotel. Would stay here again without question.

Very friendly and attentive staff. Comfortable, spacious room - however there was no electric socket anywhere near the bed (needed to arrange an extension cord from the butler). Tasty breakfasts, delicious dinners.
