We don't know how this hotel is rated number 3 of the hotels at the Dead Sea. In our opinion it is the best hotel we have ever stayed in. The service is fantastic, yet discrete, from the staff opening your car doors on arrival to a smooth and hassle free check out, every need was taken care of. The pools are wonderful and access to the Dead Sea is easy and fairly rock free, which is unusual! Rooms are beautiful, and the food is superb. Breakfast could take several hours if you wanted to try everything! We would always choose to return to this hotel in preference to any others in the area.

My husband & I went to Jordan to stay at the Kempinski Ishtar Dead Sea Resort over our long weekend in June. The resort was beautiful, the sea and mud experience very relaxing. Unfortunately the restaurants at the Ishtar need some help! The breakfast buffet was nominal...they were trying to have four types of food (Russian, Asian, Arabic and Western) and didn't do anyone of them very well. Trying to get a cafe latte in the morning was a grueling process.
The Thai restaurant we visited the first night was poor service, poor food (not very Thai despite the Thai chefs and we know good Thai food having lived in Bangkok in the 90's).
The redeeming restaurant was the Italian restaurant! Great service, great food! Great atmosphere and location! We complimented both Lourdes (waitress) and Diego (Mgr) on their lovely restaurant!
Our driver who picked us up from the airport on arrival and also drove us back to Amman airport was very professional and a great, safe driver (Shaddi - unsure of spelling)...

Room Tip: We booked the jacuzzi suite to celebrate my birthday...There was an outdoor jacuzzi on a spacious balcony!The room was well appointed and spacious.. Room overlooked the lazy river! Couldn't been happier with the room choice!

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for sharing your extensive and constructive feedback with us.

We are glad that you have enjoyed your time with us and got the chance to experience our facilities and outlets, however, we are so disappointed to know that we didn't meet your expectations during breakfast and dinner at our Thai restaurant. Being a customer oriented company, our goal is to please each and every guest’s taste, I have shared your feedback with the concerned employees, and we hope that during your next visit everything would be faultless.

We hope to see you again soon.

I'm actually a frequent visitor to this hotel and each time I visit this hotel I feel pampered and privileged,you are always secured..
The check in process is excellent and the front office team is very professional,rooms are spacious especially the village ones.
The breakfast is one of the best.
One night is not enough to enjoy the hotel facilities you may need to book two nights to have the chance to use the Dead Sea mud and to check the outstanding experience at the best SPA in the country and region.

Great 3 days in Dead Sea and day trip to Jerusalem.
Have been here before and would definitely recommend coming here.
Great pools...choice of many, good choice of food too.
Polite staff, probably the best hotel in Dead Sea and would come again for a break.

Room Tip: Half board is best option...
