“One of the best options on the Dead Sea”
Reviewed March 6, 2007

Staying at the Dead Sea can be disappointing, since the hotels there are not on par with other hotels in Israel (standards in Eilat, for example, are much higher). Other problems are that most of the hotels are not directly on the beach, and weekends and holidays can make the hotels packed and terribly noisy . Since there are virtually no attractions outside of the hotel, guests tend to stay in.
The Hod Hamidbar Hotel has it's own ajacent beach, and does not really cater for children, so it tends to be much quieter than other places around as most of the guests are middle age with no children. The spa is very clean and well kept (something not too common at other Dead Sea hotels).
Rooms are average, and don't have a balcony (although there is a nice one next to the lobby), food is ok, lobby is nice and the beach is terrific.
I would recommend this hotel for couples without children, who want a quiet stay at the Dead Sea, and who are looking for a good spa and easy access to the beach.

A beautiful hotel right on the shore of the Dead Sea.
The lobby area is beautifully appointed, roomy, clean and welcoming.
The dining area overlooks the sea. Food is scrumptious. Buffet style.
Especially good is Shabbat diner.
Rooms are fairly large, clean and modern.
The hotel has multiple spa facilities and a huge menu of spa treatments.
Relatively cheap considering US prices.
Staying there was a truly relaxing experience.
At night we had entertainment such as comedian show, Israeli singers and even a fashion show. Only 15 minutes from Masada and 25 minutes from Ein Gedi Oasis.
Great value for your money.
