We stayed here in the end of January which is the low season with only a little amount of guests. The water of the Dead Sea was still warm, so we could enjoy the "seafront" all by ourselves and be the only ones floating around.
The hotel is huge and I don't want to imagine what it is like during peak season. What turned out to be the biggest problem here (this accounts for all the resorts next door: Kempinski, Hilton, Moevenpick) is the lack of absolutely any kind of shop in the surrounding areas / walking distance. For 10km in both directions there is not a single shop / supermarket / restaurant. This means you have to eat all your meals in the hotel. Not that the food is not good, but during our stay only two restaurants were open (low season). Unless you bring your own stuff in advance and don't have a rental car you have to drink from the mini bar (5 USD for a can of Pepsi, compared to 0.30 USD for a can of Coke in a shop / supermarket).
There is free Wi-Fi in the public areas. The breakfast buffet is very good. We stayed for 2 nights which was still okay but a third night would have been too much.
