Ein Gedi is unique and is absolutely fantastic . It is an oasis in the Judean hills. You are surrounded by desert, overlooking the Dead sea -it is definitely worth the visit .
The nature here is very powerful and you get the feeling of how life looked like in the bible era. Lowering expectations regarding the hotel is the best way to approach your visit. There are different classes of rooms and there is no reason really to take the most expensive ones . If you can ask for a second floor room than you have a little balcony overlooking the Arugot canyon and the dead sea. The rooms are simple and clean. They have a little refrigerator that I always disconnect because it is too loud .
The food is nothing special- it is eatable and you will find it challenging if you have special requirements ( like me being vegan).
The spa is not worth visiting - it should have been renovated years ago.More
