Float in the Salty Sea

The hotel is of higher standard than the usual in Israel. It is Crown Plaza after all. The room is clean and bathroom is v.nice. The view is out of this world with the Jordanian mountains in the background and the greenish waters of the Dead sea before you. Some rooms have balconies, they cost a little more and you might have to fight for one. The hotel has a private beach which is outstanding and a very nice pool. There is also a spa and 3 dining options. The breakfast buffet is bountiful and excellent. However the hotel's clientel has less class than the establishment itself. People steal food and drink at the buffet packing cheese and cakes into bags and take it outside. Many guests come with bottles and fill them with juice for free. Fat men walk around the lobby in speedos. Wet underwear hangs from balconies and windows. The hotel staff has a little bit of a "French type" attitude. If you can live with that it's an excellent choice at this unique and beautiful place.

Go to the Dead Sea, but not this hotel

The hotel was filthy (including rooms and many public areas). Beyond that, I made the mistake of buying a backgammon set in their gift shop and having them mail it to me. It arrived months after they said it would and (since they wrapped it only in paper for international shipping) it arrived shattered. There are better hotels in this location.

not bad, not the greatest

The whole experience wasn't bad. Having stayed at different hotels at the Dead Sea, this one was average. Bad: When they tell you that check-in is at 3pm, believe them. They do not budge. And they won't hold your luggage to let you swim in the pool early. So make sure you get there on time. The people at the reception desk were not very friendly. The spa was pricey. They charged for the sulfer pool, which is usually included in other hotels. The kind of treatments was limited, the availability was limited, and again, it was pricey. The buffet for breakfast and dinner was waaaay to expensive and totally not worth it. The food wasn't anything to write home about, little variety, and at times, just not cooked well. Given that I have stayed in several Israeli hotels, I should've expected this, but being my boyfriend's first time in an Israeli hotel, he was completely put off. There are no king size beds. Or queen size. It's just 2 single beds pushed together. And nothing holds them in place. So you roll around, you fall in the crack between the beds, you make it wider and wider, and eventually you are on the ground. Not fun. Good: The pool and beach area was beautiful and clean. But get there early if you want an umbrella. The hotel was clean in general. The rooms were clean, put together well, we were given bath robes and a gift of dead sea spa treatments. Free parking.

Don't do the buffet. There aren't many other options, but after spending a FORTUNE for an aweful dinner, the McDonalds across the street was looking mighty good.

Enjoyable stay

Although the front desk could not locate my Orbitz reservation, the hotel management has accepted the printout and matched my Orbitz rate. My 2nd room was reserved using priority club points and, according to the "hotel policy", did not include breakfast. On the positive side, the hotel was half-full and management upgraded my rooms to deluxe interconnecting and facing the sea. The rooms were spotless, the whole facility (including the spa) is well maintained, steps from the Dead Sea and with unforgettable views. Kids loved the pool and evening entertainment (a decent show/musical revue). The dinner at the (Chinese Kosher) restaurant was quite tasty and so is the breakfast buffet. My wife had booked a 60 minute massage at the SPA, and it was average. Be aware that you will be asked to check-out by 11 a.m. - we had been pressured to vacate at the time of the overlapping SPA appointment. Overall enjoyable stay in-spite of hiccups during the check in/out process.

Save money by booking a meal plan. The breakfast buffet is a must, and will cost you 3x at the door. The prepaid dinner buffet could also be a great option unless you prefer to dine "a la carte".
