“Best hotel in Eilat. Period.”
Herods Vitalis is the best hotel in Eilat. Period. If you want to be pampered like royalty, be constantly greeted and served by the nicest people in the hospitality industry and enjoy a super relaxing vacation, then Herods Vitalis is the place for you. If you like to hear shouts at breakfast and have kids pee in the pool next to you, then go somewhere else.
Herods Vitalis offers everything you might expect from a top-tier spa hotel (and much more). Great private pool and Jacuzzi, massage waterfalls, relaxation areas, and a large variety of treatments to choose from. It’s not surprising, then, that you have a hard time leaving when it’s time to say goodbye.
Another two thumbs up to the great food at the vitallis. From a super healthy and delicious breakfast, to the (complementary) launch where you can relax over coffee, tea and snack, to the chef restaurant, Lawrence, which was outstanding.
There is really no reason to leave the hotel, but Herods Vitalis wins in location as well. The hotel is conveniently located (literally) a few steps from the beach on the main walkway with easy access to the best restaurants and night activities Eilat has to offer. It is also very close to the famous marketplace that you can’t really visit Eilat without checking out at least once.
The one thing that amazed me the most about Herods Vitalis is that the hotel’s manager, Gala, checked on us every day and made sure our experience is nothing less than exceptional. It seemed as if she’s made it a personal mission to make sure we walk away as relaxed, happy and satisfied as can be. You don’t find this kind of service and welcoming environment in the most famous hotels in the world, and I’ve been to a few.
Thanks for a great vacation. Can't wait to come back.
