The hotel is very nice, it's a complete resort with most of the services, good restaurant and bar options, try the Thai restaurant, very very good. At the beach do the black mud that the staff offers you, it's a different experience. The only reason I don't give the 5 stars to the hotel is because of the service two... More

After reading mixed reviews, I was torn between the Movenpick Dead Sea and the Kempinski. However, we ultimately chose the Kempinski after our wonderful experience last winter at their Le Mirador property in Vevey. When we first arrived, it was quite overcast and we found our room (King Terrace Room) to be quite dark – enough so that we were... More

set on the shores of the Dead Sea this hotel is a lovely place for a romantic getaway. The room we had was set in a private area with a pool shared with a few other rooms. The low season is, thankfully, a great time to visit. It was about 20 degrees which was welcome after the chill of Amman.... More

This was our first trip to the Dead Sea and we didn't regret staying at the Kempinski at the Dead Sea. The resort was quiet and secluded and it had a great access to the Dead Sea through a ramp.

A beautiful property with a GREAT location and views. We arrived later in the day, checked in and went straight to the on-site beach to take a dip in the Dead Sea. We floated (since that is all you can do in the salt dense water) for a while to relax after a long day touring Jordan. There are several... More

This is meant to be 5 star but sadly it is not consistent. The layout is like a rabbit warren- you can spend 10 - 15 minutes simply getting to your chosen location in the resort.
