Dan Eilat5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I think these days this is the best hotel you can have in Eilat. Rooms are very clean, service is good and food is good. Breakfast is very good as well. The location is very good, just in the front of the sea. Also the hotel has its private beach, so within 1 min you will be on the beach.
This is a very good hotel. We base it on the following points: 1. We had the deluxe room Seaview on the 9th floor. The room was a bit old, however, it was large, the bed was very cosy, on the hard side (as we like) and it was very clean throughout our stay. The small balcony with the magnificent Red Sea view was great! 2. The room was very quiet. 3. Breakfast was good. It was a buffet style, with a lot of options and fresh and cooked food (we were on midweek). 4. The staff was very friendly and helpful. 5. The beach is one of the strongest points about this hotel. Although we stayed on the summer holiday, due to the fact that the hotel is at the end of the north beach, it was quiet, and we got sun-beds from the hotel. You can have a nice swim there. This hotel is one of the best in Eilat.
I tried most of the hotels in Eilat amd my favourite is still the Dan. Rooms are great. Each one ocean front and with terrace. best israeli breakfast buffet ever. Beautiful pool and amazing almost private beach. I will stay in this hotel always.
We stayed here for 6 nights having not stayed at the hotel for in excess of 5 years when we stayed there on a number of occasions. We were given a lovely upgraded room which had been refurbished and i can not really fault. The reception and restaurant are in need of a refurbish and look tired . One of the reasons i returned to the Dan was the superb food. Unfortunately this let the hotel down on this occasion. The quantity of food at breakfast was huge however i quality and presentation was substantially below the standard in previous years. Furthermore friday night dinner which i previously viewed as as good as anywhere in israel was a huge disappointment both on choice and quality. It was expensive and did not live up to expectations.We also had to queue for some of the food meaning other food on the plate became cold and made for a very unrelaxing friday night dinner. Pool area as nice as i remembered but think the hotel as a whole is not as good as it used to be.
Right from the beginning we were worried this wasn't going to be what we expected. There was a line for check-in but unfortunately staff would just take whomever walked up. It was a good 30 mins trying to check in. Finally a Manager realized how long my husband was standing and called him over. Staff had already started with another walk-up but luckily they made the wait so we could check in. Rooms were OK. Buffet breakfast offered a large choice and was well laid out. Our impression is that this hotel is a weekend family getaway for many Israelis. There were tons of kids and families around the pool. If you did not go first thing in the morning to reserve a pool seat, chances are you would have difficulty finding two together. Not that we used any but there did seem to be lots of shows and things for kids to do. The hotel does have a lot of amenities but for us as a couple, it lacked what it takes to be classified as a 5-star. Service was basic.
We came to this hotel for the 4th time. Such a huge disappointment! The hotel decided to make very nosy renovations at this time. The rooms are very old fashion and needs a really good do-over (this is the renovations they should have done). The beds are not comfortable (2 beds and not king size one). The blankets are very short and not comfortable at all. We are here for 3 more days we'll try to make the best to enjoy
We stayed in this hotel for the 2nd time with our 2 kids (9 and 12). We had 2 basic rooms with connecting door. Positive: 1. Overall - we like the hotel , it was a good stay. We may come back 2. Location is perfect 3. The hotel is well maintained and clean 4. Overall , good service from the staff 5. water slide is not lengthy, but still attractive. "streams pool" adds interest as well, although it is usually very crowded 6. Free Wi-Fi in the room was stable and with good speed 7. My wife enjoyed a massage in the SPA Negative: 1. Crowded - during dinner and breakfast it felt crowded, but that's natural for Aug in Eilat. 2. The pool during noon time was very crowded as well. We could hardly found an available sunbed. 3. Due to amount of people and size of pools they do not allow using large inflatable accessories and games 4. Gym - 3 treadmills are not enough during mornings - we had to wait for available one. Maybe they need to open at 7am , rather than at 8am 4. Missing labels and tag names for food at breakfast 5. I asked the Receptionist to print a paper at 10:30pm - I was told that this will be possible only the next morning, which is ridiculous for a 5-star hotel 6. Hard to shade completely the windows, so the room cannot be 100% dark at day time 7. When you walk in the corridor , you can hear everything happening inside the rooms
A last-minute decision to spend a couple of days in Eilat provided a great two-day vacation and the choice of the Dan Eilat could not have been better. The hotel, including both common areas and our room, is very attractive and inviting and the staff could not have been more accommodating. We stayed in an executive-level room, which was extremely comfortable.
Our experience at the Dan Eilat was essentially perfect. The family room is enormous, and the separate room for the kids was incredible. Made naps and early bedtimes easy while still allowing us to enjoy. Pools were awesome, the kids loved the slide and the lifeguards were actually there to make sure things were safe. Staff was exceptional and friendly. Food was excellent. Only flaw, and this is more to lend credibility to the review than actually being annoyed, was that the gym was only open 8am-7pm which leaves little time to use for a parent.
The rooms were refurbished, beautiful and the terrace overlooked the beach and pool....the family room was perfect for kids and adults...the service was beyond outstanding.....the breakfast was delicious, plentiful and a huge variety from which to choose.....dinner was also delicious including a carving station and a grill station....the pool has a terrific set up including a slide with alert lifeguards at every point....the staff was courteous, helpful, always smiling.....there was a kid's club with activities and performances....the beach is private just for hotel guests... This was a top notch 5 star hotel and absolutely the best hotel in Eilat!!!
