“definitely NOT 2013 winner or a 5* hotel!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We were staying at the Herods botique for 2 nights between 12-14-/7/2013. The hotel supposed to be the newest among eilat hotels but it definitely does'nt feel like it!

Rooms –
rooms look new but if you look closely they are OLD and NOT CLEAN!! We went into room 581. It was fine, but when we wanted to take a shower – we just couldn't! the shower stank with mold! It was horrible. Later on we were moved to another room where the towels stank and the mold was also under the sink.

Service –
started mediocre: when we asked to move a room the first receptionist that answered us said she will first send someone to check it out.. the guy that arrived didn’t know a word in Hebrew or English so we sent him away. He came to clean. Mold is not something you can clean in 5 minutes! So we called the reception again and another guy answered. He moved us to room 275 which was fine and sent us wine and cake which was nice but didn’t compensate for the 2 hours lost. The rest of the service was good I must say.

Breakfast –
good breakfast though the whole floor stank with food.

Clean –
the hotel smells with food everywhere – not a good smell… elevator, floors, everywhere.

View –
no view to the ocean, the view is to Jordan and a lagun which is nice.

Location –
fine, takes 5-10 minutes to get to the beach or to the promenade – for us it was a long walk, since you can rent a room at the same price or even lower – on the promenade itself.

We have been to much better hotels in eilat, this one is defenitly not one of them. There are some hotels that are rates here badly but are much much better!

Hello everyone
After last year we decided to come back with our 2 twin daughter's for 06-08/06/13 weekend.
We come with AMIDAR group and this time was even better than last year.
The hotel staff welcomed us with special welcome drinks , cakes , cookies , small sandwiches , chocolates and even free champagne
After getting our nice suit at the 11th floor with big nice balcony , I saw that the hotel management renovated all balcony
With a new tuning beds , new table & chairs . inside the room I discover another new air condition (a new inverter one)
And its was nearly freezing (outside 40 degrees )that we turned it off.
I also notice that all chairs are new at the dinning room and the lobby was also renovated.
Service was excellent as usual . friendly staff that runs for you 24 ours a day – just to make you happy.
We enjoy very much and use all facilities around ,
Food is extremely tasty , pool area very clean .
The most important thing was that my wife & daughters declare : " dad , we want to stay only here all the time ".
I still recommend to couples and families : only herods boutique – you want regret satisfaction guaranteed!!!
Best regards
MISHEL NIDAM.

Stayed in this hotel 3 nights on the 2nd of June. Beginning with reception and excellent service by all staff and manager Haim.

We got a free upgrade to the superior room on 12th floor with a view to the lagoon with a terrace as size as our room.

Room was neat and clean with safe and lots of towels. Breakfast was great and the location is great as well. Bridged to the Herods Palace so it's possible to enjoy all the facilities in Herrod's Palace and still be in a quiet hotel.

Private beach is also 5 star!...

Room 1271 was great... with view to the lagoon and the mountains of Jordan.

Room Tip: Room 1271 was excellent.

My husband and I stayed 4 nights in this beautiful hotel while he was in town for The ISRAEL BAR conference.
We had a very pleasant stay, the hotel is a true five star hotel all in all. the staff were pleasant and professional.

The room itself was pleasant (we stayed in Eden suit), well equipped and tastefully furnished with sea and the Laguna view.
The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was nice - with a Jacuzzi tub and enclosed shower.
We had a bed and breakfast package, and the breakfasts were fantastic. It was hard to pick what you wanted each day .... the service was great and the food was extremely delicious.

We used the gym and it was very nice facility with pleasant staff members.
The pool is small but very quiet, the guests can also use the big pool in the HERODS PALACE hotel.

The location is a bit out of town near the beach (300 m), it was great for us since we wanted a romantic vacation far from the noisy canter of Eilat .
The beach is clean with sun chairs and lifeguard services.

We stayed at May 2013 and traveled as a couple.
