We travelled down (literally!) from Amman and spent the best part of 2 days at the Kempinski with an overnight stay. Very impressed by the service and attention from every single member of staff - they all seemed to want to go out of their way to help. The weather was kind and the children spent most of the time in the (small) heated children's pool. Shame they couldn't use the circular pool which was even warmer but only for age 14+. Check-in was quick and easy, buffet dinner and breakfast really good, rooms spacious and well-equipped. Complimentary water both at the pool and dinner was welcome, also complimentary drink by the pool and refreshing face-cloths. Access to the Dead Sea was good.
Drawbacks: the hotel was not buggy or wheelchair-friendly. There were golf buggies to take you around but that necessitated getting the baby out and collapsing the buggy. The heated kiddies' pool was quite small and had no slides or fountains; fortunately we had brought toys to play with in the water and I noticed the hotel provided some on request.
Our stay worked out at about £100 per person dinner bed and breakfast, based on 2 sharing, which was very good value. I'm sure it gets more expensive later in the year.

- The Kempinski Hotel Ishtar gives you the opportunity to enjoy its riches where Queen of Sheba and Cleopatra once strived to unravel mystery. Situated gracefully on the shores of the largest spa in the world the Dead Sea, unique for its ozone-rich air, mineral sea water and ultra-violet filtered sunshine. Surely there is no region on earth where nature and history have more wonderfully conspired, where so exciting drama has obtained a so beautiful theatre. ... more less
