I stayed here once before and was really disappointed by the dreadful service. However I liked the location so much that I came again. I just have to say SERVICE CAN REALLY MAKE OR BREAK A HOLIDAY. I don't usually complain about hotels, but this is an expensive 5-star hotel and the Keminski chain traditionally have high standards. However this... More

This hotel has two accommodation areas - the Main Building and Ishtar. The former seems sterile and even the staff seem less interested in you than the Ishtar area. The main Building is a long way from pools and the Dead Sea. Ishtar on the other hand is superb! Essentially a vast array of villas and suites close to pools,... More

Rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable, all its pools are pretty and... More

The staff at the check in are very unprofessional with the reception employee signaling with his hand that I... More

What a wonderful spot on the Dead See, helpful & friendly staff. The rooms are amazing and large, we were upgraded to a junior suite! Access to the Dead Sea was very safe and clean. The round pool is the most amazing one ever. I will return, thank you Kempinsky Ishtar Dead Sea.
