Beautiful spot overlooking the Sea of Galilee. Great buffet breakfast with a large variety of foods. Room was comfortable and clean. Good lodging for large tour groups, but that can also mean a very full dining room at times. Very friendly, helpful reception staff. Great if you have your own transportation, but otherwise not close to tourist destinations.

This was a great way to end our day at Masada. The price was fair just expect to eat at the hotel or drive 45 min to find food as there is nothing near it. After all it is an oasis! The dinner although a bit expensive ($35 a person) was good. We aren't jewish so the no dairy with... More

Everything was great but the weather. Who do you blame for that. I will stick to Septenber - October from now on. It was a great week stay here at Ein Gedi Kibbutz. The meals were great, breakfast / dinner and the rooms were good that we had. Staff were friendly and helpful

We stayed here for 2 nights in mid-March in a 'standard' room. The room was adequate and looked like it was built in the 1950's, and needed some updating. The people at the desk were a bit abrupt and probably overworked. We had both breakfast and dinner here which was fine, especially the variety of Israeli salads. Our only criticism... More

Ein Gedi Kibbutz Hotel is a lovely place to stay and is likely the best option to stay at the Israeli side of the Dead Sea (not the best in my life, only for this area). To get the same impression you should be aware of the number of pitfalls and avoid them. First, this is a place for car... More

After a few days in Jerusalem we wanted to let our minds relax a little, so booked the Ein Gedi hotel online, and hopped on a bus to the Dead Sea. The hotel, which is part of a long-established kibbutz is in a stunning location in an oasis against a backdrop of craggy, desert mountains. We took one of the... More

I feel like I've said everything already. The kibbutz is an expansive layout, way up on the hill from the dead sea. We had a regular room which felt a bit like a cutely painted army barrack. No real double bed, just two twins smashed together. The compound has a restaurant which is adequate, and a pool and a spa... More

Very well located, close access to the dead sea, to both the Ein Gedi spa and the Ein Gedi public beach (we tried both and clearly preferred the public beach to the spa) and the Ein Gedi reserve (definitively worth a visit). However the service and the room were both disappointing and definitively not accordance with the price we paid.

The kibbutz is located above the dead sea which gives you an excellent view of both the dead sea and the judia desert. The hotel itself got a range of room classes, from simple to deluxe. However the deluxe are not so deluxe... And the simple rooms are really simple for example old CRT televisions plastic spoons that bend when... More

Very expensive and the price doesn't justify it as the rooms are not clean and the stuff are not nice. And the service is bad. The food was good on the first day but after that you can feel its recycle food :-( The view is amazing and the air is good. The spa is nice yet very expensive!!!!
