Eilat hotels -- clean with great pools?

Hi, we have reservations this December at 3 hotels, and can't figure out which would be best. They are: Sheraton Moriah, Orchid, and Isrotel King Solomon. We have four kids ages 10-15, and our main concerns are: great pool, clean rooms, spacious rooms, nice showers, great beds. We figure we'll be outside most of the time, but when we're back in the hotel we want nice amenities. Between the 3, which would you recommend?

The Sheraton is newer. The Orchid is nice but outside town and main attractions. King Solomon was the first luxury hotel in Eilat. I haven't stayed there and don't know when it was last furbished. I would go for the Sheraton.

I would definately choose the King Solomon. It's a beautiful hotel and the kids facilities are fantastic. They have a kids club and a huge pirate ship near the pool area for kids to play on and burger ranch restaurant for kids. Check before to see what events will be running for kids. I have stayed there many times in the last 10 years with my family. Never stayed in the Moriah but I have been inside and although it is also very nice, it seems to attract elderly couples.

Is it me or these three posts have been written by the same person?

It does sound like shilling to me, Anon. Recommending places is fine. Multiple posts by the same person under different names to create an illusion is not.

Out of the three .. most people would say the Sheraton .. It is a big "luxury" chain .. I prefer Orchid, but I have a car .. without one it is too far out towards Sinai to be convienient .. Isrotel, well I like the chain more than the Sheraton, but I have never stayed in that particular one, there are also some comments that Isrotel do have slight bias towards Israelis, I think it is just to club members of Isrotel myself and that is fair enough to me. All in all .. the Sheraton is your safest bet!

Have a good holiday, I will also be there .. Gr8 weather so far!
