The hotel is very well located on the southern part of Eilat, on the coral reef, just on the beach. This is the only hotel in Eilat just on the beach. You must take into account that jts not near any shopping or the town of Eilat and a car or taxi is needed. We were in last week of summer holiday, so the whole of Eilat was very packed and so was the hotel. This made , the breakfast room full and you had to wait a few minutes for a table, but it was all like a factory. The breakfast was nothing special but you could order fresh eggs, all very ordinary. You could see the hotel was trying its best to keep the site as clean as possible, but they found it difficult as there was a constant flow of people from the pool and the beach, and being a small hotel so a bit messy.
The staff is not too professional which makes them extremely nice and helpful.
The rooms are spacious and modern design, very pleasant bathroom and all have either a balcony or ground floor to the pool. I recommend ordering the south side, as the view is nicer, the north side rooms face the sea and a car park.
The best is the beach and the restaurant bar on the beach. You can snorkel, the hotel lends you a mask and you can also try to windsurf if any are available. There were none available when we were there, as its free of charge, but you have a windsurf club just next door.
All in all very recommended if you like small hotels. This is not a boutique hotel.
