No need to add more, Just read what everyone else wrote.
Horrible service
Horrible rooms
Horrible food
Horrible beach
Horrible experience
The only thing that is nice is the pool.

I suggest you go and stay in near by kibbutz B&B's that are available around the Dead sea.

Though the staff seems to try and help with your needs, and the huge potential of this location, someone there just doesn't know how to run a resort. I agree with all said below- no Idea how to clean, take care of the guests and there is just no value for the absurd charges the ask for. STAY away!!!
We reserved the suite for 3000NIS for one weekend, the kitchen was full with ants, the refrigerator just poured water all over the flour, the Jacuzzi was broken, the windows had broken glass, the electricity kept falling, the toilets were leaking and the water sprinkle for the grass outside was turned on at 1:00 at night, were purring water against the window and woke us up all night.

לדוברי עברית: בקיצור- אל תעיזו להתקרב, פשוט מאכזב בצורה לא רגילה

Room Tip: stay away from the suite- the pictures in the website have almost no relation to what you will find

We saw the place on the internet and fell in love, unfortunately it was not at all what we thought. From rude staff, smelly rooms, rooms without doorhandles and complete negligence in practically everything you can think of and more......! Avoid at all costs!!!

Subject line sais it all. This place is dirty filthy. Do not believe the video on their website. It is a fake because it does not even closely resemble what this place is. Manager has no interest in clients and if you complain they get rude with you. I almost got sick when i saw the rooms. And the smell...! Stray dogs and goats walking around eating from the garbage. Please rather pay a bit more and visit another (any other) resort. We moved to the Le Meridian and had a great time.

Whatever you do, whatever your budget, avoid this place at all costs. It is a dump, with goats eating out of refuge bags, a drain clogged with puke and our room did not even have a door handle. We decided not to take it, and they will not refund your deposit (guess that is all where they can make their money). The grounds had rubish lying around ect. Avoid, if you do not want to spoil your travels.

We went there to spend a romantic holiday, which finally didnt happend due to the poor conditions of that place.
From stinky bed linen , to 7 minutes of hot water to shower .
The room is old and full of Moskitos....
Food, better no to talk about it, the breakfast remind me those we see prisoners take at jail .
Good location , but not good intentions of the owners to improve this place.

The dead sea bay is not furnished at all, with not any place to lie down to rest, just a bunch of chairs and thats it.
By all this description, ou may think is a cheap please ; Well is not, the price is the same or more than any 5 stars place in the zone. Our recommendation , dont even get close to there.

Room Tip: Rather to go to another place

The owners of Biankini clearly made an impressive and thoughtful start-up investment in this place. The scenery is outstanding, located on he northern end of the dead sea, away from the cookie-cutter large hotels of Ein Bokek, merely an hour from Jerusalem, in a quiet and secluded area. The village was built with an elegant Moroccan theme, offering a unique combination of rooms, suites, and to house all sorts of guests.
Unfortunately, the initial investment appears to be the last time anyone invested in the place. The upkeep, service, and dining facilities are anywhere between poor and absurd. The 'palace' area is lined with two tiled outdoor hot-tubs. Unfortunately, they do not work, and they're full of dirt instead, providing an apt metaphor for Biankini as a whole. The Friday night dinner buffet was mediocre, which was much better than the chilly chicken and forgotten orders of Saturday's dinner. The place is understaffed, so getting anything from the restaurant takes an extremely long time. Even the breakfast buffet was unimpressive. Meanwhile, flies and birds fly throughout the restaurant while we waited to be served. In the rooms: The bathrooms are not that clean. Faucets are a bit rusty. Not all light-bulbs work. And it was noisy as anything at night. The Sea itself is a long and steep walk from the rooms (in part because the darn thing is receding, so that is not management's fault). Management itself is not particularly attentive.
Will take along time for us to give this place another shot.
