Dan Eilat

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is in excellent condition. There’s a great pool with water slide which the kids couldn’t get enough if. The amenities are all in top shape. The guest relationship (Rinat Ategy was the person taking care of us) was very helpful , pleasant and resortful helping us with our needs. The WiFi however was awful, suffered from slow connectivity and lots of disconnections. This is a problem because there’s no real alternative since the cellular network also suffered from the same issues. Also it the kids club hours are very limited and there’s no babysitting option so you can't get a few hours of serenity to hang out without the kids.

We arrived at the Dan after a long day's travel and were immediately amazed at how friendly and helpful the staff were. They welcomed us warmly and took care of all of our luggage instantly, including my camera bags etc. Gorgeous lobby with an ultra modern look and nature that worked beautifully. The view from our large bedroom was the Red Sea. Can't get much better than that. Breakfasts were beyond phenominal!!!! The staff, although some had a hard time with English, were sweet and very helpful. And when I tried to use my Hebrew they were so charming and praised my attempts. I think I left part of my heart there!

Spacious rooms, excellent food, very friendly staff, cleaned every day. Two pools, toddler's pool. One of the pools heated in winter. Slide into the pool was open. Sea beach in two minutes walking - you get towels in the hotel and beach beds without fee. There are kids club and toddler's club, kids activities in the evening, shows for every family in the late evening. Very pleasant stay.

The hotel is decorated beautifully, it’s very special. All the areas in the hotel are maintained at a high level. We stayed in a renovated room with a view to the sea and to the swimmingpool, and it also had a balcony. The room is beautiful, very clean and comfortable. The food is very tasty and varied. The deserts are very special and tasty. There are special attractions in the swimmingpool for children. There is a swimmingpool for adults, too. There are many beatifull seating corners around the swimmingpool to relax.The beach is very close to the hotel. The service of the waiters and room attendants is very good, they are calm and lovely. I am looking forward to my next visit In Dan hotel.

Balcony room overlooking the Red Sea, a chilled glass of wine, a glorious breeze, and Jordan across the way, what's not to like? Rooms are very spacious, bathroom well stocked with necessities, and the breakfast buffet to die for! Shopping nearby is mainly designer shops, if that's you thing. Walking the boardway, shoulder to shoulder with pedestrians, gets challenging. Do it at off-hours. I loved Eliat!

I am going to start with the positives: beautiful view and weather, nice and expansive pool area with waterslide, excellent food options at breakfast and dinner buffets. Very polite staff and good selection at lobby lounge. The pool and most of the outdoor dining area are mostly smoke free. There are squash courts, a ping pong table, sauna, kids club. This hotel truly offers many options for families. Minor issue: No more fresh ice cream at ice cream store near the pool. Major issues: My disappointment with my most recent experience at this hotel emanates from my realization that rather than creating a relaxing environment for me, I experienced a lot of stress at the Dan Eilat. I don't make a lot of requests, but at most hotels that I stay at when I do make a request, the answer is "yes". At the Dan, I felt that for the most part the answer was "no". Here are a few examples: 1. My flight from the USA to Ben Gurion was delayed by a few hours so I missed my connecting flight to Eilat. We ended up taking a taxi to Eilat and our ETA was 12:30 AM. Knowing that my son was extremely hungry and not wanting to wait an hour for room service once we reached our room, I called the front desk to ask if they could have the order ready for when we would arrive at 12:30AM. At first the person at the front desk transferred me to room service and I got disconnected. This happened 2 more times. When I called back, the person at the front desk stated that they could not prepare my room service until I check into a hotel. I asked to speak with a manager since these were extenuating circumstances. Apparently the manager OK'd it because I received a call back that they would do this. It would have been a much nicer experience to just hear "yes" to begin with instead of going through hoops to get food delivered to my room. 2. I wanted to order a hamburger for my son at the grill at the pool. I asked if there was sesame in the hamburgers and I was given an entire speech by the chef at the pool that he cannot guarantee that the food has not touched sesame and that he would not take responsibility for serving my son. He then arranged to have the main kitchen prepare the hamburger, which I thought was nice of him and appreciated if it was going to be safer for my son. I went back to my lounge chair with my son and a few minutes later I was approached by the chef and in front of my son he said that he cannot serve my son the hamburger unless I have an injection with me (he did not say Epipen but I am assuming that is what he was referring to). I stated that of course I had an Epipen but why would I be required to have an Epipen if they were making sesame free hamburgers? He scared my son into not wanting to eat the hamburger. They then sent 2 managers to talk to me and that evening the head chef of the dining room talked to me about the incident. This was a very simple situation that was blown totally out of proportion, I have taken my son to many hotels and restaurants and have never had a reaction like this. Either there is sesame in the food or there isn't. It is as simple as that but somehow this went out of control. 3. On Saturday I took a walk with my mother (who was staying at the Dan) and my brother and his family and my nephew (who were not staying at the Dan). My niece was thirsty so I invited them to have drinks with me by the pool; however, the security guard would not let us in. He then spoke to a manager who finally said that my family could come in for a drink but if they go into the pool they would get kicked out (which we all heard). This was very embarrassing and rude. All other hotels that I have been to allow guests to have meals/drinks with their guests. I have never heard of this but apparently the Dan has a policy that if the hotel is more than 80% booked but nonguests are not allowed into the hotel. When we were finally allowed to enter the pool area to get a drink most seats by the pool were empty. I think that it is time for the hotel staff to rethink this policy and also to realize that if they speak over the walkie talkies, the guests might hear and understand what they say. Overall, I had a very stressful time at the Dan Eilat. Although it offers a lot, I could not give more than 3 stars because my goal is to relax when I am on vacation, especially after traveling greater than 5000 miles. I can emphatically say that I did not relax during my stay at the Dan Eilat.

When we arrived I thought this hotel seemed to have slept in the nineties. Basically, there is nothing wrong with reconstruction. The food was ok but nothing special I was sad because I thought I was going to taste traditional meals but unfortunately also by the pool in the menus or not so even at breakfast ... maybe for dinner? Room service was a catastrophe of endless waiting only for a bottle and a coke not to say that they brought me red wine and I wanted champagne or proseco. On the pool he was a nice waiter named Leo as the only one he knew good English and always ordered promptly and did not spare. I liked music days that took place in front of the hotel it was nice on a sunny day.

We usually stay in small boutique hotels when we travel but there are none available in Eilat so went for The Dan. Ask for a room with a view on the upper floors and you won't be disappointed. The rooms are large with plenty of sitting room and a delightful balcony. Breakfast was outstanding and more choices that you can imagine. The fish and cheeses were to die for. The pools were great and there are plenty of places to sit. The ocean is right in front of the hotel and they provide plenty of lounge chairs there as well.

We were in june 2016. Excellent location close to all the atractions in eilat. Clean and big rooms, private beach, the food is really good also excellent breakfast until late at 12:00. One of the best hotels in eilat we visited the most hotels there. little bit old but i heard there is renewal process and expensive for big family but was worth.dan eilat is my favorite hotel so We will back for sure.

excellent location of the hotel, great staff, excellent food, wonderful views, plenty of pools for children,I used the services of a hairdresser, many attractions in the hotel surroundings, pleasant bars in the area, great relaxation
