the best hotel at the Dead Sea - others are part of cheap American chains. The property is exquisite and the service is impeccable. The room is very large, bed exceptionally comfortable, and bathroom is spa-like. There are children at this hotel, but the property is large and were never a problem. I would say the hotel is good for... More

It is more a resort than a cozy hotel. The service is very good all around the hotel. The spa is divine!! The service at the beach and pool very good. The food at the pool was just average, not to the standard I was expecting.

Although the weather was not that warm; however, the staff by the pool were very helpful and provided excellent service.

Checkin staff were excellent as were all staff. Room was amazing as we were upgraded to a beautiful room closest to the water, brilliant! Bathroom was superb. Access to the Dead Sea is great but it would be good advice to take some form of beach shoe to make walking on the pebbles easier. Breakfast was included and was excellent,... More

We booked two nights at the Kempinski as our first stop on a 15-day independent holiday in Jordan. After the 13-hour flight from Hong Kong my wife and I wanted a place that offered peace and quiet, good food, soft bed, isolation from the busy life “outside”, together with all the usual pampering one expects from a top-end hotel.

Amazing hotel .. Best among others in the Dead Sea. Not many options for food though .. The Italian restaurant needs to re-visit their menu .. Akkad is all fine. F&B in general is not as great as the venue and the services offered in the hotel. Will visit again for sure but I hope more food options would be... More
