We stopped through here for an hour and a half during a full day Dead Sea and Masada tour. I think we were probably expecting a little more. The Dead Sea is a short tractor ride away from the complex. Once down there, you can float in the sea and go into a small bath area. I'm glad we went... More

Swimming in the Dead Sea is a must-do but it's a shame how little effort has been made to accommodate bathers at this site. Primitive showers, mud bath just a ditch, no concession of any kind. I took a quick shower at the spa without buying a locker key for my clothes. When I returned 5 minutes later the key... More

For a small fee, 100 NIS your are provided with a change room, access to picnic areas, a beautiful pool and a ride to the beach where you can float on the Dea Sea or bathe yourself in the rich mineral mud. There are also countless packages that include spa treatments and meals available.

First of all, bring shoes or sandals to wear on the beach and in the water as the salt forms a hard crust everywhere even though they cover paths with sand. Secondly go early if you want to combine a swim in the Dead Sea with Masada, about 20 minutes away. The spa closes at 5 pm and the last... More

My sister and I drove to Ein Gedi from Jerusalem. The drive was beautiful with the desert mountains to our right and the dead sea to our left. We went on Saturday so there was no traffic. We arrived at the spa in 1 1/2 hours. At the spa we were met by a friendly staff and very nice facility.... More

To sum it up after a nice wrap followd by a short message, my belongings Were stolen in the locker room. I had a feeling that an employee seemed to find my bag too quickly ( minus my cash, camera and iPhone) I was obviously upset, the owner wouldn't even speak with the employee in question and tried to calm...

It was interesting but not at all "spa experience" as european would have in mind :) Everything - from the lockers' area to the shuttle-tractor to the beach - is very functional and depending on the mood can be even fun, but with no sense of beauty or pleasure in any meaning ;) If buying a ticket incl lunch, mind...

We have been there and it was terrible. EXPENSIVE ! i mean, expensive like hundreds of ISL for a treatment, overpriced cafeteria and ice cream place. Also, during our stay we didnt see one single smile or welcoming gesture. The feeling is a money making place with no interest of making an effort towards its guests. The "shops" are like... More

The only positive thing I found there was its staff - kind, helpfull and friendly. Other than that - poorly maintained place wich, in reality, comes nowhere close to its website description. "Six thermo-mineral pools" are nowhere to be found, there are actually two. Maybe we missed it, may be not. Outside facilities consist of one COLD swimming pool, described... More
