Went to the hotel as it's being ranked 1st place in TA. If you are looking for relaxing vacation, this is not the place. Tiny, filthy, poorly maintained and overcrowded public facilities - lobby, pool, spa and finally the beach. The spa is so packed with people, you feel like sardines in the can, especially at weekends. And the hotel... More

We recently had the misfortune to stay at this hotel. This was a package of one night with tickets for the opera at Masada. We had never heard of it but our travel agent assured us it it was of similar standard to other good 5 star hotels in Ein Bokek. The reception area was tiny and crowded. The lifts... More

The hotel is located on the first sea line. The beach facilities are excellent. The beach is clean and a lot of available siting places. Beach towels are available through the automated machines. Very interesting, but so slow ... The hotel is not new, but clean and well maintained. The food is very good, tasty. The main restaurant though feels... More

I stated at Hod Hotel for 1 night, service was lovely! Premium location by the dead sea is the highlight, ping pong table and an outdoor pool looking at the ocean - amazing! At Friday night the hotel had a band playing about 3 hours time.. Great vacation!

We visited this hotel for a few hours in the afternoon after our ship's excursion to Masada National Park. The hotel is located on the shore of the Dead Sea along with other resorts/hotels like the Crown Plaza Hotel. We enjoyed a delicious buffet lunch (salads, breads, soup, meats, vegetables, luscious desserts) set out for all hotel guests, not just... More

This is our second visit within a year. We were here for 7 weeks last August to September and now for nearly 5 weeks from May 26 until June 28. This is our favorite hotel because of the following reasons: 1. It is an extremely well managed hotel and the staff from the front desk to housekeeping to restaurant workers... More

The location on the Dead Sea and the beach facility makes this hotel great. The furnishings are nice but slightly worn. The beds are very comfortable. The restaurant buffet is very good with many choices kept fresh and presented nicely and the dining room very clean and bright with large windows looking out to the sea.The hotel's core is dragged...

location was amazing with a private beach of the dead sea, dinner and breakfast were so rich and even surprising, service was way beyond average, staff were so helpful, indoor pool and outdoor pool were clean and relaxing. the hotel is old, the lobby is not modern and the furniture are "old school" but it all worked out so well......
