Herods Dead Sea5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
room was ok. Felt that staff was very unfriendly and seemed bothered at all times. Just didn't feel comfortable here. Something I just can't describe. Food was ok, Internet fine. Wet floors entering main building are dangerous. Very hard to find english speaking staff, even when calling down to front desk, had trouble.
Hotel aged appearance can be seen. When however checking in we immediately were captured by outstanding service. Room with Balcony allowed for amazing view over Dead Sea and evening view of Jordans shimmering lights. Whilst we were initially skeptical of the buffet, our minds changed momentarily when realising the choice and moreover the amazing varieties of tastes which are being offered, Good Israeli wines been suggested. Hotel has direct access to the Sea. Pool 25 meters. Overall a slightly aged lady', yet an amazing and memorable, fine time been spend at this establishment.
Natalia offered a warm welcome. Yoel went the extra mile to get us settled in a room with a marvelous view of the sea and Mr. Rachman sent a lovely plate of fruit to help us celebrate our anniversary. Ruthi provided a world class massage. Beds are comfy. The weak spot is dining. While the variety is consistent with Israeli breakfasts, preparation is mediocre.
My friend and I stayed here two nights to visit the Dead Sea and Masada in late Spring 2017. I have been to the Dead sea area many times. The hotel does not look special from the outside but it is lovely on the inside. The lobby is big and has a nice bar and seating area which shows the outdoors. The dining room is one of the nicer I have seen and the food is first rate. The man who ran the dinning room was a first class nice person. He helped my friend eat well as a celiac. The beach is gorgeous. The pool is gorgeous. I did not like the indoor salt pool but I don't need it. The room was large; the beds comfortable and a very useful bathroom, with a great shower and plenty of room . The entire hotel was very clean.
This hotel is a fairly good location by the Dead Sea and has a nice little beach, that is the only positive thing I can say about this terrible hotel (the worst we have ever stayed in). Arrival is a pain as there is insufficient parking, so we had to park awkwardly on a pavement. Service in the hotel was VERY poor everywhere. A lot of the staff spend there time playing on their mobile phones and look most annoyed if you interrupt one of them. My 10 year old daughter was trying to get a bag from the Bell Captain at the front desk and she was ignored for 20 minutes. I had to go and make a fuss before we could get our bag back. We had a third bed in our room for our daughter, but housekeeping just placed a duvet cover on the pull out bed and we had to put on the duvet cover and make up the bed ourselves. The hotel is very dirty. There were bits of rubbish littering most of the hotel corridors. This was probably because house keeping don't appear to vacuum, as there was a vacuum cleaner dumped outside our hotel room for the duration of our stay. However, the main problem with this hotel is the complete disregard for guest safety. We were woken at 5am by a fire alarm in the hotel. We quickly left the room and headed down the fire escape near our room. As we got outside we could see that the fire escape was falling apart and we were forced to climb through rubble and broken metal to get to the front of the hotel. The condition of the fire escape was so poor, we were extremely lucky it was light enough to see all the danger areas. Just as we got to the front of the hotel (in our pyjamas) the alarm stopped (it had been ringing for about 10 minutes). There were no staff to help or advise and when we tried to talk to a member of staff they just said false alarm and walked off.
The location is fabulous by the dead sea with private access to the beach. The hotel has numerous pools to add on to the dead sea including one where one may practice floating before going to the sea. The jacuzzi sauna n steam add on to the experience. The beach is clean and manned by a lifeguard. One can just float the entire day soaking in the sun and minerals. Evenings there is a lifr performance that gets the crowd going with foot tapping numbers. The food spread is lavish and the business centre is However it was the personal attention showered by the staff (Jamal, Niv, Elena, Zehorit and Sarit) that made the stay memorable beyond words. All in all, a perfect place for relaxation, rejuvenation and healing.
This trip has been amazing so far! Many archeological sites and now the Dead Sea! Hotels are 5 star, food and service is great! Our guide, Bruce, is very knowledgeable and our bus driver is the best! I look forward to the rest of the trip into Jerusalem!
Just another average hotel in the Dead Sea area. There is no correlation between the price you pay to the value that you get. The Spa is ok but too expensive. The beach is close to the hotel and it is pretty convenient. The food is ok and nothing more. Drinks are for extra money. I prefer to visit other hotels for much less money.
We stayed at this hotel in October. I wish I could remember what room number, but I forgot already! At any rate, the hotel is immaculate, the service is impeccable, and we really loved the color scheme. It was light and airy and made you feel like you were at a Mediterranean resort. Oh what a contrast when you walk outside and see the desert! We loved the entry into the Dead Sea at this hotel. No water shoes were required. There were always plenty of lounge chair for relaxing. If you don't bring a swimsuit cover up, robes are provided in the hotel rooms and you can just wear those out to the beach. The water is amazing. It's warm all year and was tepid when we swam there. I even saw someone swim all the way out to that tree that's just off in the distance from the hotel and come back with no problems. The buffet is the best buffet that I've seen at a Herods Hotel. They really outdo themselves with the offerings and the atmosphere really makes for an enjoyable meal experience. We'd stay again and again and again. It's too bad it's on the other side of the world!
Without doubt this is a luxury resort, but my experience was terrible. I went to the room for the night and pulled back the covers to find a pair of women's panties! They had obviously just remade the bed without changing the sheets! I called housekeeping who came and put clean sheets on the bed. I followed up with management who basically ignored my complaint. I will always remember this place but not for the accommodations.
