Everything is great except the food. It is absolutely awful for a hotel of this caliber. It’s not like you have any choices friends m outside the hotel. I was completely surprised by this. We had a good time anyway but I would rather eat McDonalds and I hate McDonalds. They have to take dining seriously

My family loved the hotel resort and amenities ...but we had the worse hotel check-in ever ! Originally booked for a Jr. suite, the staff manager Farah told us we had too many kids for the suite so we had to get a double room. I get the double room and the hotel never cancels the original suite , and claiming they can't cancel it ? I spent 12JD , per kid for kid zone all weekend, ate diner with the family there and Khalid in reservations can't cancel my original unused room? If you stay here, make SURE your room and billing is correct! They're greedy beyond belief and I had to cancel my credit card because of this greedy management decisions ! I'll never stay at this location again, they're not the only 5-star hotel on the strip!

Dear Mr. Toni, thank you very much for taking the time to share your feedback following your recent stay here at the Kempinski Hotel Ishtar – Dead Sea. We truly appreciate your candid comments as we humbly believe that there will always remain some room for further refinement. It is regrettable that your overall experience was rather disappointing, rest assured that what you experience is certainly not the standard of perfection we are so often praised for and that we usually maintain throughout our entire property. We have discussed your comments with the management team, I regret that you you weren’t aware that all rooms and suites can only accommodate up to two adults and one child below 12 years old, and our Front Office team were more than happy to book you additional rooms while offering complimentary upgrade. Having that said, we truly hope that you will allow us the chance to demonstrate that commitment on your next visit. Whilst it appears you have been disappointed in our service, I do hope you have enjoyed the rest of your stay with us and you will reconsider visiting us in the future. Sincerely, Marc Guenther - General Manager
