Overall, this is a great hotel. Considered by many to be one of the best in Eilat. Herod's Palace is the largest of the 3 Herod's and is classified as a 5 star hotel because of the more expensive rooms. There are multiple room categories, and if you stay in the bottom category (which is still damn expensive), your experience will not necessarily be 5 star (but will still be great).
We stayed on a half pension rate. The food was plentiful and amazing - not a single fault there. Couldn't be better.
The pool is great, and the beach access is fantastic.
The room was furnished fantastically and very comfortable. However, it wasn't maintained very well. On entry, we discovered a bathroom door that wouldn't shut. it was promptly repaired. Later, we had problems with the toilet flush not working (simply put - the flush action did nothing). Multiple times we had someone come to 'fix' it - and it stayed fixed for periods. But in the end, whenever a flush was required, I simply left the room, opened the access door from the outside, and used my engineering skills to cause it to flush. This experience is something I'd expect in a 2 star hotel.
As I mentioned - apart from those issues - the hotel was really fantastic.
