I chose the hotel as it was a bit away from the Eilat city, to spend quiet and relaxing time. As it was rather low season (February second week) resort was not full and rates were very good. All the rooms are like small houses with independent entrance, so you have a lot of privacy, nice back drop and view towards pool and the sea. We were in room 310, up in the hill and it was separate house with balcony and wonderful view. As the room is more like little thai style house its quite spacious and partly in 2 levels. Beautiful bathroom- soft towels, quality soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion. Hair dryer.
Paths up to the rooms are steep so they use these little golf cars (they call it tuk-tuk) to take you to your room or downstairs would you wish so/ 24h.
Free bikes, wifi, fitness center, pool (also outdoor hot jacuzzi), sauna and spa + little shop. Free shuttle service.
Across the street was underwater observatory and 2 beaches, north (500 m from hotel) and south (300 m from hotel). Both of them had free entrance for hotel guests, also sunbeds etc in North one, which nicer beach to be.
Breakfast (7-11am) was excellent- big selection of salads, cold dishes, warm dishes, omlett, pastries etc.
Laundry service, ironing room if you wish to iron your clothes. In pool area they had also baby cribs, so guests didn’t had to go to room to put their infant to lunch time nap.
We are very satisfied of the hotel choice and enjoyed our stay 100%.
