After reading the bad reviews we still decided to go on a tour that stopped here for a few hours and were glad we did. Facilities are very basic but quite ok. The beach is amazing and the hot baths really interesting and relaxing. We loved it and would definitely recommend a visit.

This place is run down and dirty. Its like walking into a flea market, not a spa. Just cheap tourist shops everywhere. Then once you pay they tell you that it will be at least an hour before they can take you to the Dead Sea in a cramped shuttle but you can wait in their dirty locker room area.... More

A horrible experience in a magnificent place. Dirty locker rooms, unappealing sulfur pools where you can't help but wonder about what else is in the water, lack of easily accessible mud containers on the beach (now you have to look for it yourself whereas once barrels of mud were available). Certainly not enough competition in the area for the operator... More

The spa looks like it hasn't had almost any maintenance in the past 20 years. Better to just go to En Bokek to one of the public beaches to go to the dead sea.

Never knew how one could lay in the water and never worry about sinking. Yes, you will have a film of salty, briny water on you when you get out--maybe you'll add mud and hope it creates new health and wellness for you! The facilities are terrible. Old and slow tram takes 5 minutes to get you 400 meters to... More

We visited here on a trip and with the description of a luxury spa, we were so disappointed upon arrival. The changing rooms are the type that you don't like to touch anything, it did not appear clean and certainly not inviting. The trek to the Dead Sea was ok, you could take a shuttle train but we walked. Remember... More

I could not belive that the place stayed exactly the same as it was over 15 years ago. Such a jowel that isn't being taken care off. Too many people and as a result no place to sit, the changing rooms are dirty, you cannot buy anything as it is too crowded. The beach itself is far away (20 min... More

I really didn't like that place, crowded, long lines to the showers, kind of dirty and the food is really bad and expensive, so please if you go there, bring your own food! The beach and the sea are nice(and the ice cream), but there are some better beaches..

I enjoyed the dead sea and the beach was alright. The only restaurant in the area is overpriced and the food was actually disgusting. And they only had some terrible canned lager beers for 25nis each. Bring your own food for this 12h trip and you can enjoy it quite well I'm sure.

We booked Ein Gedi Spa day at Atlantis Travel through Travel Agency near Jaffa Gate (seller Oksana)for 130 dollars for 2 persons. We knew it is poor but there was nothing else available this day. The Spa has seen its best days 20 years ago. Serious renovation is urgently required. Lockers cost extra 18 shekel + 100 shekel deposit. Towels... More
