The rooms were beautiful and well appointed. The hotel could have had more amenities. The service was okay but nothing outstanding. The pool area was nice, but unfortunately the bar was not open even though we were with a group of 25 people.

My family and I spent 2 nights at this hotel. It is newly renovated but the workmanship is poor. The faucet in our bathroom wasn't attached to the sink. The phone in the bathroom wall wasn't attached to anything and just fell off. Caulking, painting are poorly finished. If it were my place I'd be pretty upset with the building... More

This hotel is perfect if you want to lay around the pool, snorkel and just rest by the sea all day. The hotel has a great relaxed atmosphere. It's not too simple but not posh at the same time. Orchid reef offers some amazing perks for their guests: Free bicycle, free rides into town, free international calls, free snorkel and... More

I did not want to stay in the center of Eilat as that is like staying in an attraction park. So that is why we ended up at this place. I was quiet disappointed. The area is dirty and there where ants in my bed.There was an intense smell in the hallway. The view from the room was nice. Make... More

We are visiting eilat the second year in a row and we come back to this hotel. The rooms are clean and comferble. The workers are kind and helpfull. The pool is right next to the beach. The cost is a bit higher than the other hotels but it is worth it.

Stayed 3 nights here in Feb '13 before and after visiting Petra. So first, this hotel is out of the main city towards the Taba border. Eilat reminds me way too much of Atlantic City/Vegas and really didn't do it for me, so it was very refreshing to stay out of the city. Plus, the hotel is located closer to... More

One of the best I have ever visited, starting with the location, reception staff, rooms, swimming pool, the beach on which this hotel is situated, 100% satisfaction guaranteed. Can not think of one thing that wasn't perfect. Absolutely loved it. Worth every penny spent for this hotel.
