My wife and I decided to take a long weekend getway in Eilat - to relax and enjoy some sun. After my travel agent made a few recomendations and provided quotes, I checked with tripadvisor to see how they each rated.
Honestly, I was a little skeptical that this hotel could rate higher than all of the newer, fancier, five star hotels -- but the rating is fully deserved.
First and foremost I have never encountered a friendlier and more pleasnt staff at any hotel. From my first interaction with reception, to the staff at the pool and beach, to the dining room crew, etc. the employees were helpful and pleasant without exception. They were always smiling and inquiring what else they could do,
Our stay was booked as "half board," which means that breakfast and dinner were included. The breakfast buffet each morning provided a wide variety of choices, all fresh and delicious. The dinner buffet Friday night was outstanding and the dinners served the other nights in the Barbeque restaurant, with an array of grilled meats and endless salads and side dishes were delightful. Once again, the service was outstanding.
The rooms were clean, comfortable and well equipped (each room has a balcony with a geat view of the Red Sea). The three swimming pools were surrounded by comforting landscaping and there were a variety of lounge chairs, swings and even sun beds to choose from. The private beach was clean and well maintained.
We actually appreciated that this hotel is not in the main strip -- it was quieter. Yet still close to town and to various attractions.
We intend to return soon and will recommend the hotel t our friends looking for their own nearly perfect weekend.
