Daniel Dead Sea: Luxury on the Dead Sea

This was a beautiful hotel - inside and out. The staff were wonderfully accommodating and even helped me to arrange a massage at the last minute. The rooms were nice and large - our room had a beautiful view of the Judean desert mountains. Very convenient to the Dead Sea - just exit the hotel and cross the road.

The proximity to the Dead Sea was AWESOME! Go for a float, then return to the hotel for the expansive Israeli breakfast, or have a beer in the Scottish pub (which was a happening place while we were there, with live music!). Wonderful spa facilities, and they even have a bowling alley!

Prima Spa Club: Good Hotel and Spa

We spent a very pleasant weekend in the Spa Club Hotel. Its location is very central in Ein Boqeq. It is not immediately on the beach but across the road; however, access to the beach is easy. There is a private beach for hotel guests, with a lifeguard, sun beds and umbrellas, but without other beach services. The large public beach is right next to it.

The outdoor swimming pool has regular chlorinated water, and is medium size. There is a small indoor pool in the spa with salt-rich Dead Sea water. The spa is the hotel's pride, and is lavishly decorated in Moroccan style. The spa offers various massages, mud treatments and more with prices ranging between NIS 180 and 250.

Our room was not large but quite convenient. It's a pity that the windows are narrow and offer just a limited view, and that the rooms have no balconies.
The hotel also offers free bicycles and a small but well equipped gym.
The food was plentiful and tasty, both for breakfast and for dinner.

Service was efficient, but overall not too friendly, and smiles were scarce.
During our stay (as private guests) there was also a big noisy group of trade union officials staying there, which did not help to create the relaxed, tranquil ambience which this spa hotel claims.
This is certainly a good hotel, but not the best in Ein Boqeq.

The Golden Tulip INN (!): Staff-training badly needed !

First: don't mix up the hotel's name with the (seemingly better) "Golden Tulip Privilege". Although pretending to be a 4-star hotel, there is much left to be desired, primarily dealing with service.
If you don't worry about a brisk and not very friendly receptionist,if you want to fetch your drink from the Lobby Bar to serve it to your table yourself, if you want to be sent by the barman to the reception to pay for your drink,if you want to order a glass of wine in the restaurant 3 times with no result whatsoever and - above all - if you want to relax by the pool after 5pm behind a plastic-fence, hindering you from entering the pool ("I'm paid from 8 till 5, if the hotel pays me for more, I'm ready to close the pool later", states the poolman) - then this hotel may be right for you.
Otherwise - inspite of modern equipped rooms and good food - you should seriously think about booking one of the neighboring hotels, foremost the "Meridien"

Unique qualities: see above ! No direct access to the sea.

Meridien Dead Sea: Mixed Feelings

Despite the fact that this hotel is considered the best hotel in the Dead Sea area, I would have a hard time recommending it. The spa is divided into two floors (an older one on the first floor and a new one on the second floor). The new spa is very nice, but if you ask for a mud treatment, you will be sent to the first floor which is horrendous. The facilities are falling apart and the level of cleanliness is not the best. We were really amazed that a "Meridien" would provide such crappy facilities. In general, the service is of mediocre level and the level of maintanance at the hotel is quite low. It might be true that when the hotel was opened several years ago, it was a 5 star hotel. But today, the facilities are very tired and are not well maintained. One example of the low quality of service took place when we arrived to the hotel before the official check in time. When we tried to leave our bags in temporary storage, the bell boy told us he could not be responsible for the bags. If we wished, we could leave the bags in an unlocked room where the towels are stored, but no one is watching this room. We were quite surprised to see this kind of service at such a hotel.

Le Meridien: Much better option than Sheraton!

Completely appalled by Sheraton buffet by its looks and smells, we have decided to dine somewhere else.
Le Meridien was a much better choice in terms of everything - dinner, hotel facilities, crowd!!!
Even more frustrating, Le Meridien was my first option in En Boqeq but didnt manage to stay there as it was fully booked...
So even if its humongous book in advance because its probably the best hotel by the Dead Sea and highly popular...
Probably the only disadvantage is its location - bit far from the beach...

Sheraton: The worst 5star hotel Ive ever seen!

This is definitely a hotel to be avoided, nothing to do with Sheraton standards, its 5star rating or $200 rate per night!
The furniture is very tired, plenty of spots and eventually holes in our carpet, some floors were in renovations, the spa facilities were not exactly clean, the dinner looked and smelled awful, the breakfast nothing to write home about..
Very disappointing experience

The only thing we have appreciate was the location, kind of quiet and right on the beach

Dead Sea Crowne Plaza Hotel: Dead Sea Hotels

What can I say? We fully pampered ourselves here and although the hotel alone cost us more than we cared to pay (which was $145 a night during LOW season), we considered the value of the experience and the sense of indulgence which was really a lot of fun.

Some of the spa amenities are included for hotel guests, while others are not. Check with the hotel first.

Sulfur pools, mud baths, hydrotherapy, indoor dead sea pool and outdoor regular "fresh water" pool, direct beach front, great beach views
