This place is not really a hotel but rather a kibbutz guest house with a variety of different quality rooms from the most basic to comfortable accommodation. There is no luxury here. However, the rooms are clean, the grounds are pleasant, the staff are helpful and the location overlooking the Dead Sea is spectacular. The food is reasonable and there is plenty of it. Located one hour's drive from Jerusalem and 15 minutes from Massada, this could be a good place for an overnight's stop. Room prices include the use of the spa which is located about five minutes from the kibbutz and can be reached using their shuttle. If you're looking for something classier, then, as Selmakie has rightly pointed out, there are more serious and pricey hotels at Ein Bokek half an hour further south. However, Kibbutz Ein Gedi has much to recommend it.
