Convenient location. Beautiful surroundings. Comfortable pool. Surprisingly extensive buffets. The facility itself is nothing special.

So the Kibbutz Ein Gedi is way over priced for what you get. The rooms (had to book the more expensive "renovated" desert rooms since the others were not available) are so very 2 star basic. There is a fridge, old TV and bed is motel basic. The shower and bathroom are also older and could be replaced. The air...

We stayed in a renovated Arugot room. Positives: Excellent dinner buffet, great location, free passes to Ein Ged Spa, evening entertainment, nice opportunity to meet other families. Negatives: The room was a bit dingy. Also, remember to ask for a safe key when you check in - they don't tell you this, which required us to go back and wait...

We stayed at the kibbutz hotel for one night. We booked two upgraded rooms as recommended on this website. When we arrived only one of the two rooms was ready and when we dropped off our suitcases and unpacked a bit, we were thrilled. The room was spacious, clean, bright and had an amazing view. And the location was beautiful....

With some trepidation we booked for 3 nights in the Arugot rooms. Poor reviews on this site gave me some concern but I reasoned that we were afterall going to stay in the desert region and so 5 star services could not be reasonably expected. And the location would surely more than make up for any shortfall in service and...

Ein Gedi is very beautiful, though fairly pricey compared to other places in Israel. We had a mid- price range room; it was ok --- large enough with an outdoor area but not particularly luxurious. Nothing particularly negative about the room, but nothing particularly positive either. We only stayed for one night, probably would have been better to stay for...

The MUST hotel when visiting the caves of Qumran, Massada, and the Dead Sea. The reception area service and restuarant staff are professional, courteous, and very attentive. Rooms are clean, with just enough amenities for a two or three night stay. The botanical garden and the pool area are both oases in the middle of the desert.

This is an extremely beautiful "rustic" retreat with astounding views of the Judean Hills and the Dead Sea. The food (kosher) is excellent and plentiful; the staff is very sympathetic to the needs of young children and their frazzled parents. This is a great location from which to travel to Masada, the Dead Sea spas, and the gorgeous waterfalls in...
