We were not expecting to have to pay to visit the Dead Sea when we went there after visiting Masada National Park. Unfortunately & coincidently all the free Dead Sea beaches are closed due to sink holes??? So we paid the ridiculous rates to enter the Ein Gedi Spa only to find that it was dirty, had no working showers... More

Unfortunately this is one of very few beaches remaining to visit the Dead Sea. The cost - 95 NIS per person - you would assume this is a SPA. Accordingly you would expect to receive treatment and facilities, rest and relaxation. The place opens at 8 but the pool was closed until 9 and there was no transportation to the... More

Really dissapointing. Bearing in mind the other spa Mineral was closed due to sinkholes, then we knew ein gedi would be busy. We werent prepared however for showers that didnt work, or belted out boiling water by the dead sea which is frankly a health hazard if you were to succumb to some sea water in your eye! You would...

As you might know, the Dead Sea is shrinking and several access points are closed due to danger of sink holes. Three countries have diverted the fresh mountain water that would “feed” it and balance out evaporation. The reason I’m typing those opening sentences is – phone ahead to ensure that where you plan to go is open. We used... More

Given I visited Mineral Beach 3 years ago...I was sad to see it was shut down. The Ein Gedi 'Spa by Sea' is so tacky, dirty and highly commercial. For my husband and I to both have entry and rent 1 locker, it was 250 shekels....plus a 100 shekel deposit. There is a train (a tracktor that pulls three carriages)... More

While this Spa is a little pricey at almost 100 shekels per person, without any extras, its worth the price. The last time I was in Israel, we simply went to a public beach of the Dead Sea and bathed, purchasing mud and enjoying floating. This time we decided to do the entire experience, mud, pool, sulfur baths, etc. and... More

If you just want to stop for a ouple of hours to experience the Dead Sea, this is the place to do it. You get a locker, a towel, a shower at the end, and a little tram that takes you down to the Sea and the nearby mudbath. When you have had enough of floating and feeling the salt... More

This spa is a tourist's worst nightmare.Unfortunately you have to use it when wanting access to the dead sea itself. The bathrooms are overcrowded, if you can find 30cm to put your bag down don't let it go! just be prepared to rub up against the poor person next to you. The entire place is sopping wet. Perhaps a limit... More
