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

Mostly a day stop between Jerusalem and Eilat, great place 2 go after visitin Masada, great place 2 relax, take a mud bath (included with the price) relax in the beach or take a sulfur bath. Also, a great place to buy Dead Sea products (as they are produced in the kibutz)

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

We went there in January because Mineral beach was closed and the hotels don't seem to offer the sulphur pools and mud. Ein Gedi Spa charges for the day with lunch approximately the same than the hotels do but the quality of the lunch, basically equivalent to a 20 shekel kibutz lunch and the fact that the mud is brought...

Showers not working. Dead Sea is a construction site. Unhelpful staff. Expensive and not worth the money

I went on a 'spa relaxation tour' and there was nothing relaxing at Ein Gedi. Though the staff was pleasant and the beach was fine, everything else was sub par. Restaurant had poor food and erratic hours. Ride to the beach was via bumpy open air tractor. Mineral pools were all indoors and smelled of sulfur with poor ventilation. Swimming... More

I agree with others--the place is okay, but for 95 shekels you'd expect much more. About 10km closer to Jerusalem, Mineral Beach is a better alternative, and about 40% cheaper too.

If you're not in a dead sea hotel, I would recommend the Ein Gedi Spa, as they have everything the dead sea has to offer. However, don't follow my mistake, and bring your own towel. I assumed that if it carries the word "Spa" in its title, they give complimentary towels, but I had to pay 37 shekels per large... More
