At my flight to Eilat three was an awfull service, but when I arrived to Dan hotel it all as changed. The hotel service and environment was amazing and so was the stuff. I want to especially mention the spa and sport desk worker who gave us a warm welcoming and was very communicationall. One of the unique activities the hotel offeres is renting for free a squash hall. This option is highly recommended. The hotel is in front of it’s two meter walk private beach, and also the hotel is in central Eilat.
The photoes in the web page foes not corespond to the actual situation. The rooms are very poor, we booked other rooms but were offered different ones. Service is very very poor, the technique does not operate, condition airs does not operate, in some rooms you can find irons, but in ones no chance. So will never will return there and never recomend to anybody to visit there. The prices are too expensive which does not offer such value.
I have been to the dan eilat several times in the past and have been quite satisfied. that is why, when i arrived for my latest stay i had high expeectations. i found this stay to be very unsatisfactory and on the verge of unprofessional. it has made me rethink whether the next time i come to eilat and want to stay at a 5 star hotel i would stay there and not at the isrotel royal beach. we arrived at like 11am and went to breakfast. we were told they would start giving out rooms at 1:30 so afterward we went for a walk on the boardwalk. at 1:30, there were more than 20 room keys laid out on the table, but not ours even though we had pointed out that my wife is feeling ill and really needed to lie down. if they had not told us to return at 1:30 we would have taken a bed on the beach or relaxed someplace else. They dragged this on for almost 2h and as far as i could see made no effort to prioritize getting our room ready. in addition, no effort or compensation was made for putting us out like that, not even a glass of wine at dinner! the room was a decent size and was clean, although it did look out at the garbage in the parking lot next to the hotel. i found it odd that they only provided 1 set of shampoo and stuff for two people. it seems stingy. the food throughout was subpar. the percentage of vegetables that were spoiled or on the verge was high. the quantity of food was plentiful but the quality of the food i found to be low and very basic. the issue of no full eggs which i understand is a rule from the ministry of health in insane, dan and the hotels association should have made more of an effort to counter this. surely their combined clout would have been sufficient. at dinner, the waiter was unable to open the bottle of wine we ordered. in general, i found the level of professionalism on the restaurant staff to be very low with the exception of the 2 or 3 restaurant managers/shift leaders or whatever who were also clearly unpleased with their staff. anyway, bottom line. not great this time.
After too long an absence we returned to this great hotel. Do to business arrangements we have had to stay at other luxury hotels in Eilat and elsewhere and although they were good hotels they were not great hotels. The overall experience at the Dan is special. It is a great hotel. Our favorite in the world. It seemed that all of the staff went out of their way to greet us and offer any help that we might need. It felt like the public relations department of the hotel has hundreds of people even housekeepers and waiters and managers. The building, of course is fantastic with every room having a most incredible view of the Gulf of EIlat. We were there for the week of December 10 and the weather could not have been better, 76 to 80 degrees each day. We describe the meals as "diet meals". There is so much to chose from the buffets are long, so that one can imagine losing weight from the exercise. The Hotel was full but the buffets being so long were easily accessed. Don't miss the ice cream bar at breakfast and Dinner. The room was large and tastefully appointed with a 5 piece bathroom including a great stall shower and double sink. It is not the least expensive hotel on the beac, but is worth every shekel.
To start with, Eilat is the most south city in Israel and the northern point of the dead sea. As such sit has very hot weather in the summer and lovely weather in the winter period (Nov-Feb). So first recommendation – arrive in this period – it is also not a busy time of year so you can enjoy this part as well. Dan Eilat in located in Eilat north shore surrounded by other 5 starts high class hotels. As Eilat is very small place the hotel location is quite perfect in terms of access to main attractions. As I was in many of them I can certainly say Dan Eilat is standing in the top in terms of facilities and service. Indeed expensive (some will say very expensive) but quite standard with the others in term of price. I took the executive room with my spouse and we were very happy and satisfied from the room. The room is very big with a king size bed (great mattress) very nice balcony and most of all amazing view to the dead sea bay and to the mountain surrounding this area. The room has both bath and shower (separately as I like). Huge HD TV (never saw such size in hotels) and free wifi complete the picture of comfort, efficiency and tranquility. Not to mention the room and its surrounding was very clean. Moreover, the Executive room grant you as a visitor to enter the business lounge in floor 14 (more food and drinks). All together very recommended. The hotel has lovely pools (water is warm in this period of the year) and private beach. Food is great. I was under the half board arrangement so enjoyed both breakfast and dinner. Israeli hotel breakfasts are of the highest class around the world so the expectations were high. Reality was even better. The variety of food in breakfast is almost endless. Eggs, Cheese, Vegetables, Salads, Bread, Fish, Cereals, Cakes, Coffe and Tea – imagine and they probably have it. Dinner was at the same level, many options and very tasteful. Service (although barely needed it) was very welcoming and with full cooperation. All in all, highly recommended.
We spent 4 nights at the hotel 19-23rd November 2017. Great hotel, good location, good food, first class breakfast and nice clean rooms with great sea views. Our perfect stay was ruined by the hotel concierge who book us an airport shuttle ( Ovde Airport almost 1 hour drive). The shuttle was 2 hours late and we almost missed our flight. The concierge after our insistence kept calling the shuttle service and kept telling us “ it’s coming” . only after complaining to the hotel manager did we get some action.
The Dan Hotel has been in Eilat for decades, and although it has a great reputation, I was worried about the level of maintenance and service. Both my wife and I couldn't believe how such a large hotel could offer this high level of personalized service. The staff were helpful, courteous, proactive and knowledgeable. For example, during breakfast a waitress, a long time employee named Debby, came over with a pot of coffee. We told her no thank you as we were going to go to the coffee station and order cappuccinos. Within minutes she brought us the coffees without even being asked to. For the next four days she made a point of coming over to our table, bringing us cappuccinos and inquiring how we were enjoying our stay. We took half board and the quantities of food during the meals, buffet style, were mind boggling. The food was delicious, constantly replenished, and the possibilities, endless. There must have been two waiters per guest. Within minutes of finishing a course the plates were removed. The rooms were spacious and the beds comfortable with a choice of 4/5 pillows to choose from according to softness. Our room overlooked the Gulf of Eilat with the mountains in the background. The rooms were immaculate and beds were made twice a day. The swimming pools were heated, even though the weather was warm, and we were impressed to see that they had an hydraulic chair for physically challenged guests who wanted to swim. The hotel is well placed and in walking distance to restaurants, pubs, and shopping malls. It is right on the beach promenade and has its own beach as well with chairs and lounges. We were delighted with our decision to stay there and will definitely return next year.
We had a room with sea view which we really enjoyed. Pool area is very nice. We loved the breakfast! Huge variety and fresh. Location is perfect, you are in the heart of the city but not in it's noisy area.
The hotel is located in a very good place in Eilat and everyone in the hotel are very nice and also have very good food. make sure you request a room not on the airport side !!! (the noise there is unbearable)
This is a perfect 5 star hotel. From the private parking garage through the spacious fully equipped rooms,superb service, excellent kitchen, sumptuous breakfasts and dinners, everything is executed at the highest level. As an example of the superb attention: one of our colleagues is vegan, the head chef has cooked for him personally every evening. Superb.
