I think budget sensitive families who don't mind lengthy front desk waits and want to be close to Dead Sea might like this. For all others..
The hotel building itself is ok, rooms were comfortable, pool ok, spa experience was good, so I'd
otherwise give this hotel maybe 3 out of 5, but.. the front desk line was ridiculous. We stood in line for 30-45 minutes to check-in. Since we were an hour early, the room wasn't ready and we had to stand in line again for 20+ minutes to just get the room keys. The lobby was swamped with people, kids, luggage waiting to check in. There actually seemed to be enough people, but it just took a long time for each person. During my second time in line, there was a family or group of people checking in that tied up two staff almost the entire time I was in line (20+ min). For a 20 hour stay, it's unacceptable that I have to spend an hour+ of my time standing in line at the front desk.
In general, this place needs to re-assess it's processes. Almost everything I tried to do, there was something that was unexpected or just a little more difficult than it should be:
- the aforementioned front desk ridiculousness
- wifi access process: info was not given at check-in, needed to call operator, who told me that I needed to come to front desk to get access code. After I told them I was not going to stand in line for a third time, they gave me an access code, which btw stopped working that night, etc..
- food bar at pool: no menus in any language but hebrew, took 20+ min to get hamburger, seemed to make them 1 at a time, no tracking process, so not clear to people or staff who's stuff was ready when
- parking was full every time i tried to park in the lot
- at one point, one front desk staff was yelling at another staff and got what appeared to be manager
- the pool was packed, no lounge chairs available
- food was a buffet, didn't seem to be any finer dining option
