The Hotel has an older section and a new section. Take the newer rooms. Very clean, big double rooms, and the view over the wadi valley is great! Quite rooms, with a central spa, good bar, and the local restaurant - is best for breakfast; dinner was disappointing.

The location is very convenient to the sights in and around the Dead Sea, however the rooms were poorly kept, with dead bugs all over the bedding. It is greatly overpriced. Better quality and better prices are 20 minutes away at the Ein Bokek hotels!

The location of the hotel is great. The prices are way high for the type of room we had. Most of the service people are good and helpful. The Spa is great and very relaxing. You can have nice walks in the area. Beautiful scenery, and you probably see some wild animal. If you like the desert, this the place... More

This is such a lovely place which has been lovingly reclaimed from the desert and arid rocks which surround it. The road winds up the hill around rare and beautiful tropical plants and trees so you don't get a view of the main reception area until you are almost on it. The rooms are in blocks, dotted here and there... More

We love this place! Situated in a botanical garden, with views of Baobab trees or mountains depending where your room is. We booked only one night online because they didn’t have a second night available. When we got there we asked if we could stay another night. They told us they didn’t have anything but to call in the morning... More

The Kibbutz hotel is situated amidst an oasis in beautiful grounds. The mountains are so graceful as a backdrop. The plants and herbs - a wonderful collection. Kibbutz hotel rooms basic but clean but also expensive. B & B is quite enough to pay. Good breakfast in Hadar Ochel (dining room) of Kibbutz. Grounds of Kibbutz itself are lovely. Spa... More

While the Kibbutz is lovely, with beautiful gardens and a delightful spa, the room was a huge disappointment. I paid US$250 for a "boutique hotel spa room", supposedly in a new section of the hotel advertised through the internet as more luxurious. The room was no better than a room in any highway motel in the US, very basic with... More

From the lush greenery of this oasis hotel to the beautiful animals roaming the grounds, this hotel awakens an appreciation of nature's beauty. The room was very warm and comfortable and the toiletries supplied were all derived from Dead Sea minerals. Many of the rooms have an outdoor sitting area with a small table. The food was plentiful and delicious.... More

The Kibbutz is located amid the Dead Sea with excellent activities in the surroundings. The kibbutz itself is a wonderful oasis of green plantations. The rooms are comfortable and nice equipped, much better than other kibbutz's. The spa is nice and quiet since most of the guests find it expensive and prefer to skip it. Two major disadvantages: first, the... More
