“Unpleasant Experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2012

I would not recommend Belfer's Dead Sea Cabins. We stayed for one night in June and were extremely disappointed. First of all, the place is FAR from the Dead Sea. You have to drive some 25 minutes to and from the sea. In addition, the pool is not included apparently and you have to pay to get in AND its hours are not convenient. I did not like the service given to us by the host, who demanded more money even though we did not ask for extra space or amenities. She claimed we were spending more electricity and towels! At the moshav, there is absolutely nothing to do and the store is expensive as well.
This was our first family trip to Israel and we enjoyed all the places we've stayed EXCEPT Belfer's Cabins. It is expensive, poor service and inconveniently located.

The Belfer's Dead Sea Cabins are very nice and cozy. We were just staying there for one night but had a really good time. The missing star is because of the surroundings - the cabins are located in a holiday village type of area. Service on the ground was amazing, Zif was very helpful and welcoming. Many thanks!

In our recent trip across Israel, we wanted to stop at some place close to the Dead Sea and Massada, coming from Jerusalem, on our way to the Negev. After checking the usual hotels in Ein Gedi, we decided we wanted something with more of a "local flavor".

We then found good reviews about Belfer's and decided to give it a shot, in spite of staying for just one night.

We were glad we did. We got there around 9pm, after our GPS struggled to locate it, but the owner was very kind by staying on the phone providing directions, even though it was around 9pm already. Upon arriving there, she welcomed us with a plate of dates, from her own trees, what was a nice gesture.

The cabin was wonderful: quiet, clean, well and tastily furnished, with plenty of room for couples like us or even for families traveling with children. They even had a separate faucet with filtered water, as the regular water had some sulfur flavor.

The next morning we walked around the moshav (agricultural community) and saw the vegetables and fruits they grow there, on what originally was just desert land.

The only bad thing of our stay: it was too short. We left the next morning wishing we could stay longer...

Room Tip: When you get to Neot HaKikar, pass the gate, and keep going straight all the way. Make sure to carry...

Words will hardly serve to describe how perfectly peaceful and rejuvenating my weekend at Belfer's Cabins was. The cabins themselves are delightfully appointed, very clean, and just perfect for a get-away from the world. Beyond that, the Belfers themselves, Michal and Yaakov, are absolutely incredible hosts - totally professional and obsessed with making sure their guests are well cared for. An important piece of advice is this: don't just go for a one-night stay - it really takes at least two days to fully enjoy the areas many hikes (don't miss Wadi Boqeq!).

Belfer's cabins are perfect for a quiet and enjoyable stay at the Dead sea area. We've seen several other cabins in the area and these are with no doubt the best. Michal and Yaacov are great, they will take care of everything you need and help with good advice when needed. Their cabins are nice and spacious, very convenient for families (we stayed there with our 1.5 years old) and most important, they make you feel Home away from home. We strongly recommend to stay there more then one night in order to experience the peaceful atmosphere this area has to offer. Don't forget to check the tasty vegetables Yaacov grows himself, and for the kids - the corn maze and the goats are a great attraction.
Also, there's a wonderful swimming pool in the village for free (4 minutes drive).

Besides the other advantages of this place, we were extremely impressed by the high level of professional hospitality in this cute place. We had some special needs and got excellent service and a lot of care by the Belfers. We hope to come back soon !

If you don't want to be in one of the major dead sea towns, this is a great alternative. It's about a 20-30 minute drive to the dead sea, Ein Gedi and Masada in a little dessert town.The cottages are very clean and comfortable, with a nice double bedroom and kitchen on the ground floor and a comfortable loft space above with three mattresses, (access by a slanting ladder, might be a bit tricky for young children)
