Well, everyone could read my previous review for Le Meridien Dead Sea from August 2011. I also have read it and, honestly, discovered some inaccuracy, to my shame :( The point is, that then we didn't like the food. And, definitely, it is a very important element for Resort Hotel. I can't say the food was bad, or bad-quality, God forbid. However, it was trite, obvious, not refined as expected from 5* Hotel, especially in Israel. So, one the one hand, we found the worst ratings here unjustified and exaggerated. But on the other hand, agreed that the hotel need to improve many things to match the expectations. Thus, this time (December 2012) we strongly preferred another hotels of Leonardo-Fattal chain. Especially Leonardo Privilege Dead Sea. But when we finally decided to jump for a short 3 days vacation, the spare rooms left only at Le Meridien. Well, we decided to give them another chance to impress us :) Well, the hotel took this chance seriously. We were amazed by the Dinners. Both variety and the quality of the food was fantastic. I swear that we wasn't able to construct better menu by ourselves, if were invited to do so. Hopefully this is now their usual level. Breakfasts were also nice, as you can expect from such a hotel. The room and facilities were clean. The only two problems were with a service, and mainly with SPA facilites. Regarding the service, we not found the suitable extras (Robes, flippers, bottle of water, milk) in our preferred room, and received it all with some delay. But this is excusable, the hotel was full - 100% occupancy. What is less excusable, is the facility problems in SPA. First, the "Alternating Douche" ("pressure shower") was broken whole weekend. Also, the dry sauna was out of order one complete day. Still, the SPA was very nice and relaxing with pool of warm Dead Sea water, Jacuzzi and wet sauna. But they need to study how to prevent such a inconveniences. Finally, I must note, that at first I found some Entertainment which was relevant also for tourists who don't understand Hebrew. Usually (We visited already 4 Dead Sea hotels during 6 vacations) the entertainment is some musicle IN HEBREW. But this time, in Le Meridien we found excellent international troupe presenting music hits and dances from all around a world, and troup of amazing acrobats ("African Circus") who gave a show for visitors from all ages. Some very positive change, from my point of view. At first I didn't ask myself "And what our dear visitors from abroad doing with translation of Hebrew musicle?" :) Have a nice vacation

Room tip: We stayed in preferred Metsafa (Massada) room. Such a rooms situated on 14-15 floors, if I remember correctly. Surely, it is bigger and better than standart one. However, standart room still good enough if situated on the higher floor as possible (I say 5th+), not aside elevator.

Wife stayed at the Meridien Dead Sea Hotel with a friend early January for 3 nights as part of a large get-together.
Were upgraded to a suite.
Service was very good and so was the food. Breakfast was good too with a large variety to choose from.
The hotel is a walking distance to the dead sea itself or one can use the hotel shuttle.
The hotel has a very nice spa but the sauna's could be improved.
All in all had an enjoyable stay.

Le Meridien is one of the better hotels located at the Ein Bokek Dead Sea resort. It has all the usual facilities such as an indoor and outdoor Dead Sea water pool,sulfur pools, fitness centre, massages, etc. The place is clean and the staff friendly. However, the hotel has 640 rooms and the lobby and restaurants can sometimes feel like Grand Central Station. However, if you stay away from weekends, the Jewish festivals and school holidays, it is obviously quieter and less congested. It is worth paying the extra for a Premium room with a sea view on the 16th floor, which includes the use of the Executive Lounge, where you can eat breakfast or enjoy afternoon refreshments in a relaxed setting with free use of Wi-Fi.

Room tip: Book a Premium room facing the Dead Sea and including use of the Executive Lounge

I will start from the end… This is our 6th or 7th visit and most probably not the last.
The Meridien Dead Sea is the best place to spend your SPG points. The value is low and the experience is great.
Meridien Dead Sea is located in a very good place in the Ein Bokek Hotels area. This is the place for rest. Don’t look for night clubs but only for excellent quite environment, hot healthy salt pool, perfect SPA and most important very warm hospitality.
The fact that you don’t have anything to do around is also the disadvantage of this location. If you want some action, take a backpack and go to explorer the wild nature around.
Few recommendations:
- See the sunset and sunrise
- Go to Ein Bokek
- Get in the Dead Sea and don’t swim. Why – you will find it very quickly.
No doubt that this is one of the best hotel in this area (if not the best of all).
Very recommended
Last comment… The SPG value is very low and its VERY cost effective.

Room tip: High floor view is great. All rooms are Sea view
