Overall, I’ll give this hotel four stars, but I am taking into account the entirety of our experience. We had an Argunot level room, and I was under-impressed. While it was adequately clean and comfortable, it could benefit from some freshening up and updating. I’d give the room three stars. What made staying here special was the magnificent grounds of the hotel. I found myself taking picture after picture of all the cacti and flowers and fauna. Their botanical gardens were just spectacular. An evening walk was offered by one of the Kibbutz members, who provided lots of fascinating information and stories and pointed out flowers that only open at night.
There aren’t lots of choices for where to eat in this area. We took all our meals at the hotel because there weren’t any other options close by. Breakfast was very good. We ate Shabbat dinner in the main dining room. The first course cold salad options were fantastic, but the hot meat entrees were fairly uninteresting. The next day we ate lunch and dinner at the dairy café. It was pleasant to sit outside, and the food was quite good.
One caveat: anticipate lots of walking at this facility. The main dining room is at a bit of a distance from most of the rooms. This may be difficult for people who have challenges with walking.
I usually don’t indulge myself with trips to spas while I’m on vacation – too many other things to see and do. However, on this trip I went to the hotel’s spa and had a hot stones massage. It was perfection. I haven’t felt that relaxed since infancy. Many thanks to Michal.
Overall service was spotty. Some staff tried hard to be helpful, while others seemed to just be putting in their hours.
Nevertheless, I’d still recommend the Ein Gedi Hotel to others and would return there in the future.
