This hotel was a great value for the high quality. Three of us shared a room (queen bed and convertible sofa) for a total of $180 USD just before the high season was starting. The location is across the street from the beach and the hotel is affiliated with the Orchid Reed Hotel, which is less than 1 km down the road and on the beachfront. Guests of the Orchid Resort Hotel may used the private beach at Orchid Reef Hotel and borrow snorkeling equipment for free. There are some small reefs with colorful anemones, clown fish, and sergeant-major fish just off the beach (about 20 meters) in shallow water easily viewable with basic snorkeling gear.
The hotel is set on a hillside and featured Thai architecture. Guests can call for a golf cart (all very prompt) to take them to and from the front lobby, restaurant/pool area, etc. the staff was pleasant and helpful. Many of the rooms higher on the hillside have a view of the Red Sea. The concierge desk can arrange Red Sea day and dinner cruises as well as hiking in the nearby national park. For those interested in scuba diving, the hotel is conveniently located very close to the Aqua-Sport Dive Center, a full-service PADI-certified dive center. This hotel is located away from the town center in a quieter beach area. The restaurant food was very good and reasonably priced. Eilat is a small compact city and it would still be easy to stay in this area and visit the city center in the evenings, expecting a taxi ride back to take at most 20 minutes.
