The hotel gives you a great impression when you first enter with a big lobby and a few shops/cafes. The area is just stunning, I could not believe my eyes on the drive down, wow! The spa area is decent in that there is an indoor and outdoor pool, a sulphur pool (pay extra) and sauna/steam room etc. The dead sea itself is just wonderful too.
However, 90% of the staff were quite rude or simply clueless. At dinner, my husband wanted a drink other than the water on offer, the waiter literally didn't know what to do. When he found out, my husband was told that he would have to go over to another area to get it and pay when he was there. Bit odd.
This isn't really the hotel's fault but many of the guests were rude too. The indoor swimming pool was quite overcrowded and people were leaping over each other to get in the jacuzzi which was foaming - ew!
The food was okay. It was a shame in the evening, we didn't spot the salad and by the time we had, we were too full of the stodge to sample it - looked nice though!
One good thing, when we had a problem with the room, the hotel were very good at addressing that in a timely manner which is appreciated.
In conclusion, the hotel was okay. I wish I had stayed for another night not because of the hotel but the area it was in - stunning! Would perhaps try a different hotel in the same area if available at a reasonable price.
