Rated 5 out of 5 by YesItsMe Great location, nice hotel
Have stayed here a few times over the last year.
The hotel itself is very nice by Israel standards, although a tad dated.
The service is very good, and my SPG status was recognized and honored.
The hotel is in a great location, and w/ the lack of other chain hotels, is a very valuable addition to the SPG brand.

I stayed in the LeMeridian for he middle days of Succot. I really loved it. The buffet's were amazing.
Entertainment was totally in Hebrew, wish some was in English. Amazing Spa area. Outdoor swimming pools are great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by deerisle Nice property if visiting Dead Sea or Masada
The is a very nice hotel if you are visiting the Dead Sea or Eilat. The platinum amenity included an amazing Israeli breakfast buffet complete with unlimited lattes and other drinks. The cheeses and fruits were amazing, and the service very nice. The only drawback is that many things (business lounge) and spa pools (including sulfer baths) were limited to 16-18 or older. I was visiting with my 12 year old daughter and this was a limit. The deal for point and a platinum upgrade was amazing.
The only drawback is that the lobby was noisy at night with tons of kids. Also, the pool closes at 6:30pm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Platinum61 Surprisingly great experience
Given all the negative comments on this site, my expectations for this property were low. Instead, I find it to to be one of the most relaxing and complete experiences I have had and am looking forward to visiting it again. While the hotel is in serious need of upgrading (carpets, rooms etc) pools were excellent, breakfast abundant, lounge comfortable and having our own beach on the dead sea phenomenal. The atmosphere was so family, friendly you felt that you were at a simcha. Close to Masada and other historical sites this hotel is ideally suited for so many things.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mel123 Surprisingly nice hotel!
Based on the reviews I read about Le Meridian Dead Sea, I was not looking forward to my stay, and therefore, only booked the hotel for one night.
However, upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised! The rooms were spacious and clean. The bathroom had both a bathtub and a shower (and was also clean). The balcony was quite nice with two chairs and a table. The staff was quite friendly and brought us a bottle of wine, fruit, and bottled water upon arrival. The hotel has multiple pools and spg preferred guests have access to the spa. The breakfast buffet was quite nice, and the reduced cost of the dinner buffet for spg guests was an unexpected bonus, and quite worth it considering there aren't many other places to eat in Ein Bokek.
I deducted a star for a couple reasons:
1. the line/wait at the front desk is absolutely ridiculous. Perhaps a separate check in for spg preferred guests would help.
2. the lobby is a zoo; in order to access the beach you have to walk in and out of the lobby. (it would be nice if you could access the beach from the pool area)
3.The staff is friendly, but only those at the front desk speak English.
Overall I had a pleasant stay!

Rated 4 out of 5 by StevenL Hotel has a calming and relaxed ambiance
This hotel is very relaxing, soothing and all around amazing. Great views, Spa, Pool, Nightlife and so on. Staff was pleasant and helpful and truly accommodating. Air Conditioning in our room could have been a little better, otherwise our week-long stay here was perfect. A highly recommended resort.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Esther Great features and very comfortable
Overlooking the Dead Sea, comfortable with attentive staff. Excellent food, peaceful grounds, two pools, spa. No free wi-fi - $25 a day which is excessive today. A relaxing pleasant resort property. This is an ethnic Israeli experience so if you are looking for a standard international type hotel with no local flavor and character, this may not be for you. For example the food service is all buffet style, with much of the food being cooked for you while you wait [in line!]. Desert hiking 10 minutes away. Glad to hear that the property is remaining in the Starwood family after it was announced that Starwood would no longer be including it after 12/31/2011.
