We just came back from our winter trip to Israel. We stayed two nights in the prima oasis hotel at Ein Bokek. I read all the reviews before our trip and some of them caused me some worry about the hotel. I am glad to say that it is a very nice hotel with nice features. Our room was comfortable even though we added a cot for a third person. When I booked the hotel through booking.com I was under the impression that it would be a triple room with a couch that opens up. As it turned out there were no such rooms in the hotel, but our room was comfortable enough.The hotel stuff was accomodating and polite.The added cot was already in the room when we arrived. The room was nice and clean and so was the bathroom (though a box of tissues and a bit more cosmetics would have been nice). There were enough towels for the three of us when we arrived. The bed was very comfortable.
We had a half-board so had breakfast and dinner in the hotel. I am happy we did that. The dining room is large with beautiful views of the dead sea. The food was great and there was an incredible amount of it, also a lot of choices
The Dead Sea water pool was nice and warm, though I would have liked it to be larger.The spa is beautiful and the reflexology massage was great.
The view from the room was beautiful - the Dead Sea and the mountains around it. It was beautiful any time of day and evening. The windows are somewhat different than regular shape windows. They are corner windows and the view is quite wide.
While there was tea and coffee in the room, none was decaffeinated, too bad.
The hotel was supposed to have its own beach, but access to it was closed. We went to the public beach and got chairs for free with vouchers from the hotel. Being that it was too cool to swim in the sea itself (althhough a number of brave souls actually went in) we didn't spend too much time on the beach. I wonder why the hotel beach was closed.
There is not much to do in Ein Bokek itself, except enjoy the beauty of the place, the comfort of the hotel,the fun shopping malls, sipping coffee on Aroma's porch, and walking along the beach. We did it all and had a great time. Just lying in a hammock in the beautiful courtyard of the hotel in the fairly warm December evening was great.I would definitely recommend this hotel.
