The hotel is very beautiful with an amazing view to the sea. The food is good. The bathroom was not cleaned well. In conclusion, the hotel is very good & sweet, but according to the 5 stars it "has", staff is not so friendly, food is ok, there are no waiters and price is to high under those circumst...

Hotel review by Veronika, Germany in 10 November 2011

Very friendly staff! We arrived one day late and they didn't charge us the night we missed. The hotel is a little outside Eilat which is actually nice because it's not so loud and crowded. The only thing slightly negative were LOTS of really loud kids in the pool area, but I guess that makes it a ni...

Best Breakfast Buffet

Hotel review by Josh, United States in 09 April 2011

Best breakfast buffet by far of the hotels we stayed at during our visit to Israel. Very nice facilities and comfortable rooms. Location in middle of nowhere is biggest drawback, but not major impact on our particular trip, with short stay and 3 adults....

An attractive option convenient to the coral reef

Hotel review by Stephen, United States in 24 October 2010

The Orchid is a very attractive hotel on a steep hill overlooking the Gulf of Aqaba a couple of miles outside the town of Eilat. A car or taxi is necessary to get there. The approach passes by an unattractive port area but the immediate surroundings are good and there are several restaurants in the...

Hotel review by Ksenia, Russian Federation in 05 June 2010

Major drawbacks: 1. To far from the beach & no transport to it (bikes do not count). Walking half kilometer along road in hot weather is not pleasant at all. 2. Very small pool and no free place near it during the day. 3. Virtually no night life, animation for younger people in the hotel....
