Best hotel at the Dead Sea - highly recommended to anyone who wants to spend some relaxing days at the lowest point on earth. Clean and spacious rooms with an amazing view!

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The property is not aging very gracefully. The interior decor is a bit outdated, some things in our room were broken (mini fridge missing a leg, balcony door handle close to coming off due to how heavy the door is, light in mini bar would not shut off). The service at the hotel and the pools were nice and I would think this is the best option in the area, but do not expect full 5-star luxury here.

Liked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Dirty towels, burnt food, a cockroach & nice staff
Day 1: Towel used for cleaning (had dirt and clear hand prints on it) was placed on the towel rack Evening 1: Ordered 3 plates, got 1, took more than half an hour to get a charcoal burnt to a cinder plate Morning 2: Poached eggs took forever and finally hard boiled eggs were served, then corrected with hard boiled poached eggs. Oh well… Evening 2: cockroach makes an appearance Through it all, the staff and management were very nice offering excellent lip service and limited comps. Kempinski in the Dead Sea is dying.
