“Nice!”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

We stayed the second week in November - the weather was perfect!
The hotel was ok - nothing out of this world, but it was nice and ticked most of the boxes!

Location - fine but a long walk from any shops
Rooms - had a nice decor and were clean, plus nice sea view
Food - great selection and good standard
Spa - was nice, and was clean
Pool - good size and nice layout
Beach - a plus as they have their own private beach - it was clean and had enough beds, showers etc.
Entertainment/lobby bar - nice decor - but pretty poor entertainment
Service - they did try so you have to give them points for this - but it is difficult anywhere in Israel to get great service

Check and Double Check is about choosing your room. See the info about this below.

This hotel is very good, but the ratings on Tripadvisor are incorrect in comparison to other higher standard hotels in the area. It really depends on what you want for your vacation at the Dead Sea and the deals you can find for the different hotels.

Pros and Cons - details below.

PROS:
Direct beach access to the Dead Sea
Excellent Dining Facilities
Executive staff that seriously cares that you enjoy your stay
Handicap accessible

CONS:
Old hotel that has been renovated
2 Km away from other shopping/restaurant facilities
Some rooms do not have balconies

There are two hotel areas 2 km apart from each other at the Dead Sea: Ein Bokek and Neve Zohar. At the Northern most hotel complex at EIn Bokek there are many more hotels, there are souvenir shops, mini markets, fast food and coffee shops. This means you have other options for buying food other than ordering at your hotel. The shops and activities there also provide other activity options for family members.

However, the newer, modern hotels DO NOT have direct beach access as they are further away from the Dead Sea. You either have go out of the hotel and walk to the beach or take the hotel shuttle.

At the Neve Zohar hotel complex there are only 3 hotels, it is quieter and there are no shopping facilities except for what is in the hotel. You can either drive to the shopping area or walk 2 KM (which is not advisable most of the year, here at the hottest place in Israel and sometimes the hottest place in the world!)

However the food at the Herod's is excellent and you can enjoy yourself without leaving the hotel! They have a huge selection for both breakfast and dinner and all members of our family really, really enjoyed their meals here.

For direct beach access to the Dead Sea, this is the best hotel in the area. When you have direct access to the beach - you really do spend more time floating in the Sea than when it becomes a hassle to walk or take a shuttle.

The hotel provides everyone with bathrobes so you can just walk straight to the beach from your hotel room.

CHOOSING A ROOM:
Despite some reviews on Trip Advisor and other internet sites that say every room has balcony with a view, there are 14 rooms at Herods that do not have balconies. These are used when the hotel is fully booked. Besides not having the option of sitting outside and enjoying the amazing view - you also have no way of drying swimming suits. There is no hairdryer in the room either - so make sure you ask them to bring you one!

So when you reserve a room at this hotel Check and Check again that you are getting a room with a balcony!!!!

If you do order a room with a balcony, I am sure you will have a wonderful stay, eat well and take advantage of having the Dead Sea right outside your door. .

Room Tip: Rooms: make sure you order a room with a balcony

We book this Spa because we was on our way to Eilat and some friends recommend us to make a stop in the Dead Sea from Jerusalem to have a Spa Treatment... Woao what a disappointment!!! Since we walk in to the Spa everything was with a lot of disorganization, the massage was OK, but the facilities are Old, and not so clean... not even a locker near the Spa rooms for your stuff...
We suppose to relax and spend 3 to 4 hours in the place, well after the Treatment (1Hr) my wife and me take the car again and continue our way to Eilat... Without take a shower!!! because there is not Showers at the SPA... you need to have a room to get a Shower!!! AVOID THE SPA... Dont know the quality of the Hotel!!!

Fattal_Hotel_Chain, Manager at Herods Hotel Dead Sea, responded to this review, December 1, 2013
Dear Sir,
I reviewed your comments regarding your Fun Day at the Herods Dead Sea hotel.
I regretted reading you were not satisfied with the spa facilities of the hotel. I would like to point out the spa has undergone renovations and is one of the most popular spas in the Dead Sea region.
I am quite sure had you have referred your comments to one of the spa representatives, they would have done their utmost to assist you in order to meet your requirements.
We would be more than happy to offer you a Fun Day at the hotel as compensation should you be in the area once again. Please do not hesitate to contact me should this offer be to your satisfaction – where I would be more than happy to accompany you personally. Contact me at mobile no. 050-2457555
Best Regards,
Dorit Yogev

We stayed at this hotel for 3 days (21.11.13-24.11.13).

What we liked most of all:

1. Service - the staff is very polite and helpful, smiling and cheerful! From the very begining we were very pleased by the service provided at the hotel! Dispite there was a small queue at the front desk we got our renovated room on the 4th floor pretty quickly along with a small nice talk to the receptionist Rachel. And there was also a botlle of wine in the lobby to welcome people who just arrived.

2. Room - clean, comfortable, well designed with the balcony (all the rooms at the hotel have got balconies facing the sea!). The only thing we found odd - is the shower... it's half opened.... so when you take shower there is some water on the floor.... That's a little bit strange, why not to make the shower cabin with the doors or, at least, with the curtains??....
You've got a tea set along with the kettle in your room, so you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee sitting at the balcony listening to beautiful music outside during the daytime! There is also a hair drier in the room and a TV-set. One can find a lot of channels on different languages, or can order a film, but it costs money. Our room was properly cleaned every day! We didn't face the problem with the towels, every day we had the new ones. Forgot to mention, there were 2 bathrobes and 2 pair of the slippers inside the wardrobe.

3. Location of the hotel - far away from the shopping centre, so if you don't have a car it's a little bit challenge to get to the nearest shops.

4. Beach - the hotel has got its own beach, which is within 2 minutes walk. Clean with lots of deck chairs at your service. The entrance to the Dead Sea is comfortable - the salt is minced, nothing causes pain to your feet.

5. Entertainment - on the weekend there were some concerts in the lobby (in the evening), elderly people had a great fun :))). As for the younger generation.... you've got an option to order the drink at the lobby bar and sit outside enjoying beautiful view... At about 11 o'clock the was a pilates lesson and the other day an water aerobics lesson for those who was interested. As far as I understood there was also a small kindergarten for the children whose parents decided to have a rest a little bit. There is and organic bar inside the hotel along with the spa centre and a gym.

6. Swimming pools - there is an inside swimming pool with the Dead Sea water, which was, by the way, very hot and nice to swim in since the water at The Dead Sea was pretty cool.... for me,.... at least. There is also a jacuzzi near the swimming pool. As for the outside pool - it's pretty big, clean and comfortable. You've also have got plenty deck chairs there, along with the towels on them and bottles of water on the tables! Very nice idea!

7. Food - delicious, rich variety of different meals, drinks, salads, fish and so on. The atmosphere at the dining room is really nice, the waiters always take care of your dirty plates and help you with everything you ask them for.

8. Parking - comfortable, free of charge, spacious.

9. Impression - the best one! Definitely recommended! Come and enjoy your stay.
