We stayed here three nights as part of a bird-watching festival.
Overall the stay was extremely pleasant. Our room was smallish but clean and comfortable. The beds were comfy and we had a balcony (I think that all/most of the rooms do) overlooking the swimming pool and the sea....with the mountains of Aqaba in the distance. A fantastic view with glorious sunrises! The hotel wasn't full and it was quiet and pleasant. Service was excellent and friendly.
One should be aware that the hotel is NOT in the main hotel area of the town...it's about a five minute drive south, on the coral beach. We found this a definite plus, but if you intend to spend a lot of time in town it may be a slight drawback. The number 15 bus stops just outside the hotel and takes you into town - the hotel reimburse you for the bus ride cost.
The food was, as is usual for most Israeli hotels, excellent! We were half-board and the variety and quality of food was outstanding - buffet style....all you can eat and then some!
The beach is just a two minute walk, but if you're with kids you need to accompany them as it's the other side of a main road. The beach is small with the usual smattering of beach bars etc., and it also seems to be the diving centre of Eilat with a half a dozen scuba diving companies operating there.
One gripe...like many hotels in Israel, they still seem to think that they can charge an arm and a leg for internet access - something most places in the world have come to take for granted as a free service. The easy way around it in this case is to go to the Aroma Cafe next door the hotel where you can surf on their wifi for free (....or for the price of a cup of coffee).
