Hotel review by Ludovica, Italy in 28 August 2014

The hotel's parking is too little, so I needed to buy tickets for the public parking. In 3 days of staying, just 1 day I had the bath mat. Maybe for hygienical reason the children pool should be separated from the adult's one. The room was big and confortable. The breakfast was very good....

Hotel review by RINAT, Russian Federation in 01 July 2012

Предыдущий отзыв об отеле Orchid, который в тайском стиле. Orchid Reef же находится на самом берегу моря и ближе к городу. Выходишь из номера и плюх в море. Море с утра прохладное, но после 11.00 - божественное (теплое, чистое. прозрачное и с рыбками). Если проплыть немного направо - попадаешь в кор...

The glass wall of the bathroom is not a lucky solution. When the light is on nighttime the whole room is enlighted. It is very disturbing. The hotel is beautiful and conveniant. The staff is very nice polite and helpfull....

Hotel review by ILYA, Russian Federation in 11 November 2011

Cet hôtel situé dans le magnifique jardin botanique est un havre de paix. Entouré par le désert et la Mer Morte c'est une oasis exploitée dans le respect de la nature. De plus, malgrè le grand nombre de chambres le restaurant est convivial, peu bruyant, et la nourriture de très bonne qualité. Je r...

I chose this hotel intentionally yet following my friend's recommendation. I never had any regrets about my choice. The hotel's location right at the seashore was exactly what I was looking for. I was fully satisfied with service and cleanness and staff's helpfulness and hotel's facilities. A little...

Reef Hotel in Eilat really on the reef

Hotel review by Veronica, United Kingdom in 25 October 2010

Best thing about this hotel is the location, really on the reef and next door to the Coral Reef National Park. The rooms and balconies are comfortable, the pool and beach excellent and there is a restaurant and beach restaurant as well as several eateries across the road. Good value for money....

Hotel review by Eileen, Switzerland in 20 October 2010

The beach in front of the hotel is ok, no white sand, rocky but not too bad for snorkelling. The hotel needs refreshment and a more modern design. Clean, staff is ok. Free internet access. Location of the hotel is a bit outside of the shopping areas, but a very good restaurant is right in front. ...

Hotel review by Papi, France in 11 September 2010

The main advantage of this hotel is the location which is perfect for divers. The commun parts were pleasants except the jacuzzi which was cold. The maintenance of the room is not good. The flushing system was not working good neither in the room nor in the commun toilets of the lobby. ...

Just a bit better than a motel

Hotel review by Julia, United States in 05 April 2010

We paid a lot of money to stay in this hotel. However, the hotel is well below the 4 stars it claims to be. The service was especially bad. An unfriendly welcome at the reception, rooms were not cleaned on time and was left half dirty. No towels in the swimming pool. The noise from the disco nearb...

I have nothing to complain about the hotel itself. My only gripe was with the parking situation. When I arrived I pulled into the lot next to the hotel which I didn't realize was a public parking area that you had to pay for. Ihe guy at the desk warned me rather mildly that I might get a parking ...

The location of the hotel was great, but very noisy at night (loud music coming from neighboring clubs & parties), and the service/cleaning for the bedroom was not very satisfactory : they didn't hoover the bedroom during our 4-day stay, plus they forgot to give us toilet paper when needed, and they...

Our stay at the hotel was enjoyable. The problem was, that when we arrived to Eilat, nobody knew where the hotel is located and it took us almost two hours to find the hotel.
