Stayed at this hotel just before Easter. Based loosely on a Tie Village them, the hotel is built into rocks on a hill and you can order took-took's to take you to your room or the pool area.These are electric cars but be aware that the maintenance staff use petrol ones and they are noisy. It is a few miles from the main town. The number one reason I liked this hotel was that it is not pretentious in any way and the people staying there do not look you up & down or care what you are wearing around the pool unlike a lot of other hotels in this region. The pool area is lovely with free towel's although the pool is not heated. For some reason they have another swimming pool towards the top of the hotel gardens but it is only ornamental (I kid you not, a good sized pool but only to look at!) The rooms are fine but do need some refurbishment. There is free internet access although only available by the pool. They offer free computers and international calls by the pool as well. Breakfast was rubbish compared to other hotels in Eilat, no toaster for starters. Maintenance is slow to react, (computer down for 3 days no one fixed it, telephone not working during our stay no one fixed it etc.) Very clean pace and staff are helpful for a change. Would stay again.
