Isrotel Agamim Eilat Reviews
Nice pool, everything OK, but few smiles Jun 05, 2008
The Isrotel is situated just outside Eilat center. We drove, but presumably it is a 15 minutes walk to the seaside. On the back of the hotel you look at salt ponds which, if the sun is high and the wind blows towards you, cause pain to the eyes. Sunglasses not just recommended, they are a must.
The hotel is a big square shaped building complex with hotel rooms along the inner court pools as well as higher floors. The highlight of the hotel is this inner court. The pools are fantasy shaped, connected to each other with canals so that you can wswim from one to the other, and landscaped gardens and walkways with bridges over these canals.
The rooms are good but not 4 or 5 stars. They are adequate but small but the balconies or patios make up for it. You get to the rooms by walking over the walkways on the outside, like you see often in US motels. Bathroom facilities are OK and everything is in oder and works, but no frills.
There are various dining facilities, a huge restaurant, a bar and the outdoor bar where they serve barbecued food and fast food. The breakfast is OK, the selection of braad, pastries, fruit, cold cuts etc. is OK, but if you want something from the omelet station you'd better take your time. We found this main restaurant massive, crowded and impersonal although no complaints about the quality of the food or drinks.
Atmosphere and service: that is the big letdown of this hotel. Apart from the front desk we have barely seen any of the staff smiling or being attentive. They are sometimes unfriendly, and mostly ininterested. And this was not getting better due to the fact that many of the guests were loud, unmannered and rude. Maybe it is not always like this, but we felt we were there at a wrong time...
