“what a nightmare!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

After years of travelling, this is the most horrible hotel I've seen. I do not understand how can you ask such a high price for such a bad rooms. This hotel should be closed and it is definitely not three starsworth.
After we saw the room, we were sure that we did not want to stay here. The manager would not give us our money back. After our argument that we have booked rooms according the pictures on their website, the manager said: "Do you always book according the pictures and if the rooms are better than the pictures, will you pay extra?". At that time it was clear to us that this conversation is going nowhere. Eventually, we managed to get a part of our money back. Behind us was a long line of unhappy guests who wanted their money back.
So, if you don't want to worry during your vacation, DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL!!!!!!

We stayed at Aquamarine Hotel Eilat for 1 night over passover vacation. The rooms are horrible and dirty. The bathroom are rusty and the toilet was not working. There is parking at the hotel but it is first come first serve basis, so we had to park the car somewhere else.

The hotel is close to the beach and the mall.

Please find another place to stay if you want to enjoy Eilat

This is a really bad hotel, do not stay here!
We only stayed one night when passing by Eilat on our way to Jordan... it is a really worn down hotel. The windows are not "tight" and alot of noice from the outside gets in. As there are o lot of pubs and traffic outside it is really disturbing.

The only positive thing about it is the location..

Overall an horrible experience..

The worst hotel I saw. It's very old hotel and it looks so. I don't think they did renew at least once after built. The furniture in the room looks like was found on the street. Room was dirty. The conditioner does not work (only sound). No towels in the room (was need to ask). Loud music all night (there are many clubs around). All the time was the electricity interruptions. The price too high for such hole. Should be --- instead ***. Not recommended. Add some money and find another hotel.

Toilet tank leaks at all the time, water was on the floor all over. Air conditioner stops by itself, and doesn't start again anymore automatically. Each time you have to go and turn it on manually or room gets hot. Tiny weak fridge for 2 bottles of beer. Sagging mattresses, you sleep like a banana in the pit, back hurts. Torn curtains are on the windows.
Room service staff is rude and lazy, during 10 days we stayed there the room was serviced 3 times only and only after we made scandals at the reception. Bed linen is changed after a special requests only. At the last day the maid has stolen or thrown out my new high-speed USB flash drive ($100) in a revenge. At the reception they just have smiled to me consolingly after I complained about this. Corridors are dirty all the time. Kosher breakfast - you have to eat marinated herring every day, no meat or sausages. If this would be the last place to stay at Eilat - I wouldn't go again there.

Room Tip: I haven't seen any good there.
