We went to this hotel as 5 friends. One couple (room 200+) and 3 friend (room 100).
The couple got a nice room with a good view (but very outdated).
We got a "special" room. It's located in the worst spot in the hotel – a room not worth its money (as you can see in the pictures). Lights missing, no land phone (to call the reception), tv wasn't working, etc.
We talked to the management about it – and the said that there is nothing to do about it and offered to move us to a different hotel (and one that's considered a bad hotel). Not really a solution for us as we came as 2 rooms.
Beside that the room was broken and near a big power pole, at the place that they put the laundry packages and the empty beer kegs – the room is not designed for 3 people (and we paid a good extra). There is a tiny loft with a shaky (not attached) ladder and in there that is a mattress on the floor – but a very short one.
What else can I say, the breakfast was just bad. VERY far from the standard in Eilat and definitely not like in other 4 star hotels in the area.
Before we booked the hotel we called and asked what facilities there are in the hotel.
That told us – 2 saunas (wet and dry), a heated pool, and a Jacuzzi. The pool is not heated and nobody entered as the water is too cold (In a warm weekend), the Jacuzzi is filled with kids and the wet sauna is not working (at all).
The stuff is not helpful at all.
Just don't go there – it's not worth your time and money.
