Herod's Boutique is part of three hotels on one complex. The Palace is the large one, the Vitalis is a spa, and the Boutique is smaller and not overrun by small children. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, with nice bathrooms. Every thing was spotless. I am not sure this applies to all guests, but we were allowed access to the Vitalis spa without having to pay an entrance fee. We also were able to make reservations at local sites through the hotel. The Red Sea is cuddled up to the hotel, which also has a very nice swimming pool. The hotel complex is beautifully maintained, and the food in the atrium of the Vitalis was very good. One downside: At least at the Boutique, the staff were incredibly unhelpful; in fact you would think they've never stepped outside the hotel into the town, based on how little they seemed to know. Nonetheless, I will happily stay here again if ever in Eilat.
