“one of the best places to stay in the dead sea area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

We had great stay in the first floor in delux renovated room facing Nahal Arugot and small garden -The 5 stars level room was clean,comfortable and new.
The swimming pool is very pretty.The spa with another 2 small swimig pools is great including very proffesional staff and outstanding views . The botanical garden is very unique.
.
The high level of the new rooms and the new spa is not in the same level of the food facilities.In order to be in the level of at least 4 stars hotel-The dining room needs renovations ! and the food and it's presentation has to be upgraded! (both in the dining room and in the Baobar pretty resturant .)

The whole expirience is very good-if they will improve the food issue- it will be excellent.

Room Tip: the new renovated delux rooms and suites facing nahal arugot

Overall, I’ll give this hotel four stars, but I am taking into account the entirety of our experience. We had an Argunot level room, and I was under-impressed. While it was adequately clean and comfortable, it could benefit from some freshening up and updating. I’d give the room three stars. What made staying here special was the magnificent grounds of the hotel. I found myself taking picture after picture of all the cacti and flowers and fauna. Their botanical gardens were just spectacular. An evening walk was offered by one of the Kibbutz members, who provided lots of fascinating information and stories and pointed out flowers that only open at night.

There aren’t lots of choices for where to eat in this area. We took all our meals at the hotel because there weren’t any other options close by. Breakfast was very good. We ate Shabbat dinner in the main dining room. The first course cold salad options were fantastic, but the hot meat entrees were fairly uninteresting. The next day we ate lunch and dinner at the dairy café. It was pleasant to sit outside, and the food was quite good.

One caveat: anticipate lots of walking at this facility. The main dining room is at a bit of a distance from most of the rooms. This may be difficult for people who have challenges with walking.

I usually don’t indulge myself with trips to spas while I’m on vacation – too many other things to see and do. However, on this trip I went to the hotel’s spa and had a hot stones massage. It was perfection. I haven’t felt that relaxed since infancy. Many thanks to Michal.

Overall service was spotty. Some staff tried hard to be helpful, while others seemed to just be putting in their hours.

Nevertheless, I’d still recommend the Ein Gedi Hotel to others and would return there in the future.

The staff were pleasant, the rooms well cared for (although my husband could smell the insect repellent).The food was fresh and delicious. The swimming pool was a dream. I would definitely go there again. One night was definitely not enough.

A resort in a the heights, much better than -400mts, in a Kibbutz that is a Botanical Garden! They have several types of apartments, and I stayed in the best one, just behind Nahal Arugot. Very comfortable. There is a very new Spa, a swimming pool. If you want to go to the Dead Sea, they have a shuttle and free access to the Spa down there, whith sulfur pools, massages, swimming pools, black mood and a carriage to the sea, with showers and shadow close. Breakfast is good, dinner is buffet and expensive, but there is the Baobar, with À La Carte choices.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the mountains are very quiet.

It had been 3 years since our last visit here. We have found many improvements. We had reserved a room which included access to the new spa. It was awesome! Also we found the breakfast improved from last time. The room was huge and with a view to the mountains. The fact that it is so close to the dead sea and the botanical garden makes Ein Gedi a very special experience indeed. Hope to be back sooner rather than later. Thank you

Room Tip: If you can, book one of the luxury rooms. It's well worth the extra cost.

I was so disappointed, $250 a night for MOULD and DIRT, interior painter like a kindergarden, infuriating. It's a big RETIREMENT HOME. We weren't aware of any choice of dinner but the CANTEEN style buffet dinner. Least romantic place i have ever been.
I just can't believe I paid that much. SHOULD have been $50 a night. It's like a youth hostel. Had a really nice massage in the spa, but that's not the hotel. The hotel was awful. And i think they get complaints all the time, the speech seemed rehearsed! I don't know what the other rooms were like, but I agree with another reviewer: The standard rooms are like TOILET BLOCKS.

Room Tip: Avoid standard rooms, or just avoid the whole place. I'm beginning to think there is no such thi...

Your hotel options at the Dead Sea are limited to either the big hotels (which had mixed reviews) or Ein Gedi Hotel. We had a very nice time for the 1 night we stayed there. The room was very clean and modern and the location cannot be beat...right next to the valley, only 5 minutes from the nature preserve, 2 minutes from the beach, and 20 minutes from Masada. If your budget allows it, go for the minisuite...very new and in a nice location right bear the view of the valley. We had a meal plan with breakfast and dinner. Both were quite good and the only extras we had were for wine & the bar. We did not use the spa but it sounded quite nice. The roads to Ein Gedi were a bit curvy but felt very safe...both from Jerusalem and afterwards up to Galilee through the West Bank.

Room Tip: Go for a minisuite.
