“Dan Dan the excellent hotel”
Reviewed 7 February 2014

We have recently returned from the Dan hotel in Eilat. We had a fabulous week weather good and the hotel good. Our room was excellent and housekeeping was excellent. The staff in the executive lounge were first class worth upgrading our room to enable us to use the executive lounge. They were helpful, polite and spoke excellent English. The view from the balcony from executive lounge was wonderful. The food in the restaurant was first class and plentiful. One small criticism staff in restaurant were slow in clearing away dirty plates when the restaurant was busy.
Swimming pool was excellent lovely and warm and plenty of pool towels available. We took the hotel shuttle bus from the airport to the hotel but was a little disappointed that it didn't work in the reverse. After all it's only a few minutes drive to the airport. Will definitely look at staying again but have to lose the weight gained from the excellent food first

we have just returned from our yearly visit to Eilat.
The Dan is the most amazing hotel.
Everything is just perfect.
The rooms are very nice...this year we were given an upgrade to a mini suite which had the addition of a jaccuzzi and a large terrace with sunbeds, table, chairs and sun shade.
It was tempting not to leave the comfort and luxury of the room and to spend the entire time enjoying our own private luxury.
We did, however, and went on long walks and of course the obligatory shopping spree (Eilat has no VAT).
The shopping malls are full of bargains at this time of the year.
The Ice Mall is a place not to be missed. it is circular, the middle is an ice rink which is surrounded by shops.
There are tours in and around Eilat but we have been there so many times that we don't bother.
The breakfast at the Dan is not to be missed.
The buffet offers evey kind of the most delicious food.. It runs the lenghth of the enormous dining room.
The selection is unbelievable
We look forward to our annual visit and hope we can continue to enjoy the excellent service, beautiful hotel, fabulous food and kindness, helpfulness and caring of the staff again and again.
We have never been disappointed or found reason to complain at the Dan Eilat.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice. We've never been bothered by noise. The more you pay, the more you get.

Dear nitzan_10,

The entire team here at the Dan Eilat is always overjoyed to hear when a guest enjoys their stay, and had a wonderful experience to remember us by and to look forward to again when they join us once more on their next stay in Eilat. I'm so happy that you were able to take in everything Eilat offered, especially the food prepared by our Head Chef, Ofir Kedem, who puts his heart and soul into every meal he and his staff prepare. Thank you again and looking forward to the next time,

best regards,

We are Dan-club members and stayed three nights at the hotel in January . We arrived by plane and used the hotel's free shuttle service from the airport. Upon arrival a most polite and courteous clerk at the reception desk welcomed us. My husband mentioned it was my birthday and we were immediately upgraded to a very spacious and beautiful executive room on the 11th floor with the most beautiful view of the sea.
The room as well as the bathroom and the balcony were spotless, clean and extremely well maintained.
Shortly after we had settled in a chambermaid came to ask if we needed anything, extra towels, toileteries etc...
In the evening there is also a turn-down service and every evening a nice little surprise, choclates, nuts and raisins, a box with stationary awaited us.
The hotel has a very pleasand Middle Eastern Restaurant "Shipudei Habustan" which offers a choice of barbecued skewered meats, freshly prepared salads, pita and humus at very reasonable prices and the service too was pleasand and good.
The beds are very comfortable but the pillows were unfortunately very uncomfortable. Maintenance sent us 4 different pillows but alas... but then we are probably too fussy about our pillows.
Breakfast at the hotel is everything you can dream of. I reccommend, if possible, a table near the patio where you get a beautiful view of the palm trees and the sea. There is a great choice of everything and the variety!!! Just name the coffee you like and you get it, the same goes for eggs, fruit, salads, bread, cheeses, cooked vegetables, pastries ad cakes. And everything is so tasty.
All in all it was a superb vacation with the best service we could have imagined. We highly reccommend this hotel

Room Tip: The higher the better.

Not having been to Eilat for quite a few years and never having stayed at the Dan I was curious to see what it was like. We arrived around 7pm to find nobody around to take our bags from the taxi. The security guard gave us a hand and after check in they found someone to bring the bags up to our room. We found the room to be more than satisfactory, a good size with everything you could need. The bathroom was nice with a separate compartment for the toilet. The shower was over the bath but powerful enough for a good shower. The only issue was you had to position the curtain very carefully so that the water did not go onto the floor which did happen a couple of times. Only one sink but spacious bathroom with complimentary toiletries. The balcony was very pleasant with a small table and 2 chairs and we sat on the balcony at the end of the day to get the last rays of sun. The first morning we went to breakfast which was amazing! I have had Israeli breakfasts but this surpassed them all. Everything and anything you could imagine even fresh pizza and ice cream! The breakfast is also served till mid day which is great for a lie in. We had dinner in the hotel one night which was a buffet and again the food quality was excellent. We had a fantastic massage in the spa one afternoon which was very reasonable in price. The concierge was very helpful, booking restaurants for us every night and recommended a great place for us and our friends for New Year's Eve. The pool area is busy with children but we found a quiet spot by the smaller pool. I would recommend the hotel and would stay there again, especially as the price we paid was much more reasonable than another 5 star hotel we usually stay when in Eilat.

Great hotel. Probably the best in Eilat. Service, food, cleanliness and any thing else you are looking for in a hotel, are excellent. Customer center, taking personal care for any call and act fast. They verify that any issue was solved to your complete satisfaction.

We stayed for 4 nights in the Dan Eilat. It was not at all what we expected, when you know a Dan hotel which is a five star hotel group....... This was certainly not worth the go.
The location is very good, but the hotel is outdated and not properly kept. No slippers wardrobe and no mini bar. No free wifi! This is a shame! We went to the customer service, but the lady was not really helpful.... A five stars approach was not hers.......we were "enoying" we got the impression. ONE very positive thing is the food in the restaurant which is really good. The head of that service, mr. Benninghouse is a man who knows how to rule this business. Excellent host en wel kept and last but not least; very good food! If the whole hotel was ruled by this man........ it would be a five stars once more!

Room Tip: take at least a de luxe room or a suite.... may be you get more what you want then

Dear theresa r,
Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us; all feedback is invaluable in our bid to develop the very best services for our guests.
We are delighted to announce our initial stages of refurbishments have begun and looking forward to offering our guests an enhanced product.
Moreover, while Dan Hotels are industry leaders in terms of complimentary wifi, offering zones in all our hotels, the management are always listening to guests needs; we will be sure your comments are heard. Our loyal e-dan members currently enjoy an hour of free wifi in their room every day, so perhaps this could be an option for the time being.
At check in, we request a credit card as guarantee for any incidentals, just like is procedure in hotels worldwide; upon presentation of card, we're happy to supply our guests with all amenities that could make their stay more comfortable such as slippers or robes and mini bar packages.
We're happy to hear the Mt Benninghouse took good care of your needs in the food and beverage department and in general you enjoyed the food faire; we'll be sure to pass on your compliments to the chef and the team.
It would be great to have another opportunity to welcome you back for a more complete impression and we invite you to be in touch so we may be of assistance.
With best regards for the time being,
Limor Aharoni
