The guy at reception (Saturday evening) was most helpful, I guess that we were lucky after reading of others experiences. We arrived just in time for a really quick swim in the stunning pool . I do not understand why the pool closes at 6pm on a hot summer's night but I was grateful to have the opportunity to cool off. The room ( a private double with bathroom) was small , the beds really narrow but the bedding was crispy clean. The bathroom was clean and everything worked. The aircon worked.
We went out looking for food to discover that most places in Ein Bokek closed early, we found ourselves at the Aroma Cafe (mainly because of wireless internet) and had a good light meal.
The breakfast was plentiful but not very exciting, although I did find an olive in my strawberry yoghurt!
We had planned to climb Masada to see the sun rise but owing to physical restraints did not make it. We did get to see sunrise from the roof though. Being so close to the cable car and being able to get up to Masada by 9am made the visit enjoyable in the intense heat.
Generally, excellent value for money especially in comparison to a hotel in Ein Bokek
