We're just back from 3 nights in this hotel. The hotel is listed as a 4 star but doesn't offer services like room service so I wouldn't all it 4 star. Also the rooms are dated and basic and are only 3 star quality, however they are clean. What I mean is that the TV is CRT, the aircon controls have the instruction worn off so you have to guess what the settings mean, these kind of things. The carpet in the hallway is worn and there were panels missing from the wall. Also, WiFi cost NIS75 a day, thats E15 a day!! The rooms don't get cleaned on Saturdays due to religious reasons, but you can request clean towels etc.
The pool is the saving grace of this hotel. As other reviewers allude to, there is sandy beach pool that is ideal for children and has very vigilant lifeguards. There is also another pool with a lazy river and a little cave for you to hide out in. There is a nice waterslide also. Toilets are available for the pool users, but unfortunately they are underused :(
A big problem I had with Eilat (not only this hotel) is that I had initially booked with a well known hotel booking website, but after talking with people at work found the exact same room at half the price on a Hebrew website. My hint is that if you know anyone who speaks Hebrew, get them to help you book a hotel in Eilat. It will save you a lot as the hotels there are overpriced anyway.
