I've booked my tickets to Israel for next March as well, a 16-day trip designed to celebrate my public-service retirement (though I'll continue my private law practice). I'm going to spend two to three nights in Eilat so I can tour some more with Erez Hernnstadt of Desert Eco Tours and experience that part of Israel more -- a part I don't know well.
I will get quotes from Chantal Shmuel, as usual, but I'm interested in people's recommendations for a hotel. I'll be traveling solo and don't particularly need a great beach, though a good pool would be very nice. I stayed at Le Meridien when I was there last November and liked the hotel a lot, so I'd be open to staying there again -- but also open to trying a new place.
Thanks for any tips you may have!
