The concept is superb - a Thai village on a mountain side overlooking Red Sea. The site is nice and the lush greenery well maintained. But there it all stops. The staff at the front desk is hardly friendly. All other staff speak between themselves very loud and use walkie-talkies at full volume which cannot but disturb guests. The rooms...

We came to a 5 days seminar with the whole family. The room we got was nicely located in the lower part of the resort since we have small children. However the room itself has a balcony with two beds for the kids but was unused because they needed to climb a steep ladder to reach it and is unsuited...

The room was very badly maintained with dirt stains in the bath tub. The toilet was leaking as well so we had to turn the water off after every time we use the toilet. Receptionists were not at all pleasant to deal with and charged the rooms on my credit card even though I stressed to them that I will...

This hotel consists of small wooden cabins laid on a steep hillside with beautiful scenery to the Red-sea It is shameful that the rooms lack proper maintenance and are also not very clean. The staff are very friendly and always seem to be happy driving you up to the cabin on the golf cart 'Tutuk' ride - which is a joy for the younger...

We enjoyed very much the peacefulness of the dessert. We hope to return to eilat and stay there again. The reception where very kind and allowed us to check out late with out extra charge. The only draw back was the reliance on transportation to the rooms on the mountain that it not available all the time so we had...

Like every year in the last decade we had a wonderful week at Orchid Eilat. It's a quiet place with a lot of privacy with a incredible view over the Red Sea. The Cottages are very well equipted and comfortable. The healthy rich breakfast as well as the Dinner-buffet is full of tasty surprises. Snorkling with thousands of fishes across...

When we arrived we got an upgrade from a "house" to a "Villa", because they were renovating some rooms. Lucky! We enjoyed our stay at the resort very much! All facilities are very nice and the staff is friendly. Amazing location with view on Saudi Arabia and Jordania. Border to Egypt can easily be reached by bike! We'd love to...

We enjoyed our independent cabin on the side of the hill. It was well appointed and clean. There was a tuk tuk to take us up and down if we didn't want to do the short walk. Very organic feel as everything is built in wood. Excellent breakfast. The staff were pleasant and helpful. For us it is much nicer...

This hotel is built on the side of a steep mountain and resembles resort hotels in the Far East were the rooms are individual cabins. Reaching the rooms is mostly by golf carts. The service was very good and attentive. However there are little niggling things that should not be part of a hotel that has 5 star rating. For...

Yes, it's not the most modern, and some of the rooms are in need of renovating, but it's so nice and calm and you really get to feel the natural beauty of Eilat - instead of being overcrowded by all the tourists. This hotel is located away from it all - and we loved staying here.
