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

The place could be a jewel, but it is wasted. Dirty, poor maintenance, looks like geriatric facility with poor maintenance. Crowded on weekends, to small recreation area, beach far, that's could be understandable if they had arranged better mean of transportation and facilities. I wish someone private company will take the place and do something good.

This place could be really enjoyable if you get there early. The problem is that literally everything closes at 5PM (or earlier on some days) and if you are not out the door by 5 they start rushing you out. This is very disappointing for a place that is supposed to promote relaxation - I was the most stressed I've... More

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!
