When paying 95nis at the reception (with only a 20% discount for students) I awaited a top level spa. That's far from what to expect from at this place. The price list rises from the above to about 890nis for an all inclusive massage treatment. I can't imagine what the can offer as "all inclusive " at this resort. The... More

I really didn't liked the restaurant in this place, the food wasn't that bad, but was the worst I eat in Israel. Also for the price the quality and facilities should be better.

I visited at the Ein Gedi Spa today and I must say how disappointed I was to find out that I pay more for less. The basic entry fee is now 86 NIS (about 25 USD), which allows you to use their sulfur pool, swimming pool and the beach. If you need a locker you'd pay an extra 15 NIS... More

I did not know what to expect in visiting the Dead Sea but I certainly didn't expect to be thrust into such a crass commercial atmosphere. Sort of ruins the whole idea. Our trip was really marred by our experience with the shuttle that drives you from the main house down to the dead sea - it's about a half... More

My wife and I are locals, but we went there with our friends for the first time. BTW you can usually get a considerable discount for entrance+lunch via www.groupon.co.il . The staff was very friendly and because it was the first day of the week it was rather spacious. The facilities were clean. The overall experience was good and fun.... More

They charge for everything, including your towel. There are very few directions or staff to help you figure out how it all works. It was packed when we went, and at first they weren't even able to sell us a locker. People were queued to shower after their Dead Sea / Mud experience and the changing room / showers were... More

The pros: good location, for one fee you get a locker (refundable key deposit), freshwater pool, mud, private beach, train to and from the beach. The cons: We went on a Saturday afternoon and the place was RAMMED. They were having a hard time keeping the changing rooms and showers clean due to the volume of visitors. Avoid Saturdays!

It is NOT very good for the price it charged. 1. Need to wait for the trolley cart to get to the dead sea, and of course to wait again when you get back with the seasalt /mud deposit on your body. Although it took only 5 mins drive, not many people like to walk upslope with the deadsea deposit... More

There is more junk for sale there than you can possibly imagine. And you have to walk through it all to get to the place where you leave a deposit for your towels and your locker. Then, when you want your deposit back, you have to trek through the cosmetics shop to the back register in order to get it.... More
