We were only interested in spa/beach access and picked the first hotel resort we saw (the pickings are slim) in Ein Gedi area of the Dead Sea and picked Hod Hamidbar as it was recommended in our guide book as well. The facilities are clean but not luxurious by any means. And for some reason, I barely saw anyone who was not a senior citizen. The beach does not have the salt rocks that we were warned against. It was basically large grain sand so not soft but it doesn't hurt your feet really. The shower has a shampoo/shower gel you can use and they provide towels with the spa fee. There is no mud at the beach front of the Dead Sea so we had to buy some to apply on ourselves. I would probably try another resort in the area if I had to do it all over again.
