I had searched TA for a hotel for a 1-night stay following a performance of the opera at Masada. I wasn't interested in booking one of the most expensive hotels, but I did want our stay to be very pleasant since we had paid a lot for the opera tickets and didn't want to ruin the experience with a so-so hotel.
I made my booking on booking.com and selected a deluxe room in order to have a "sea view" as opposed to a "pool view". Well, apparently, all rooms face the sea, and according to a staff member at the reception desk, the only difference between a standard room and a deluxe room is the size, which is not the information that appears in the site, which lists rooms in both categories as being 35 square meters. Therefore, we could have saved some money by booking a standard room since I'm certain that we could have felt very comfortable in a smaller room.
The breakfast was lovely, and so was the lunch that we ordered in the lobby shortly after check-in......a very tasty salad for me and a delicious pizza for my husband. (We didn't have half-board.) Speaking of the lobby, we found it to be extremely attractive........very new and tasteful decor, and it was a real pleasure to relax there at different times of the day.
We didn't mind the fact that the hotel is not on the beach because we found the shuttle to the Isrotel private beach to be very convenient, and this enable us to enjoy the Dead Sea for several hours before we had to leave. Check-out is at noon, but the hotel granted my request and allowed us to stay an extra hour, which gave us more than enough time to enjoy the beach.
Note that the rooms do not have hair-dryers in them, but guests can receive one upon request.
