There are a lot of hotels in Eilat and I need some help choosing. Please help! Here are my criteria:
-2 30something travelers
-Top priority:would like hotel with a nice beach, with sufficient sunbeds, good snorkeling
-Dates are 27 May - 31 May
-Would like to keep price no higher than $1350 USD for 4 nights
-We are not big on nightlife, so location does not have to be central
-Is half board really necessary in Eilat? Are restaurants close enough that we could go out to dinner outside of the hotel? Half board seems expensive, possibly more than dining out.
-Are all the beaches attached to hotels, or are there good public beaches to visit?
So far, I've looked at Herods, Leonardos, Orchid Reef, etc and it's hard to tell how nice the beach actually is.
Thanks in advance for your input!
