My Wife and I stayed there this past January during our visit to the Holy Land. The Hotel is within 10 mins (by car) to the Dead Sea Shores and same to old city of Jericho. We had Breakfast included and the food let me tell you is beyond our expectations. Had some typical middle astern dishes (Hummus, Falafel, Fava beans, Zaa'tar Pies) but also other plates you find at any InterContinental around the globe (cereals, fruits, omelets, boiled eggs, milk,juices,etc.)
As for entertainment at the restaurant by the pool area (covered) very arabesque in design had a guy playing the lute one night. Very relaxing and prices were quite affordable compared to places here in Boston. The staff is amazing, very accommodating and friendly and all who I talked with spoke good English.
The weather was perfecto will get 65F during the day and drops to maybe 45F at night, some night were cooler than others. We did manage to swim in the dead sea in January though!! As for security you don't even to have to worry about it. The hotel is adjacent to a Casino (currently closed) and the adapted to same level of security you have at Casino/ Resort Hotels. Each car comes in has to stop at the gate and looked at before it makes it in. There were three pools but only one functioning since it is winter, but I could imagine what would it be like in the spring and summer. Nice green area to lay down and few tennis courts as well. We are certainly coming back on our next trip.
