As all Israel hotels, the Dead Sea hotels can be divided into 2 types.
First type. Small lodges called “zimmer”. Zimmers on the Dead Sea are located in kibbutzes near the sea, for example, Ein Gedi. But the majority of zimmers are in the desert in several kilometers from the Dead Sea. The advantage of zimmer is, first of all, in the inexpressible atmosphere of a small cozy lodge in the middle of the desert. As a rule, each lodge has jacuzzi, often a pool.
Second type. Big hotels with all conveniences. All hotels on the Dead Sea are situated in a place called Ein-Bokek in the southern part of the Dead Sea. There are 3-5 stars hotels. As a rule, the majority of them are directly on the seashore.
Before ordering a hotel you should learn all about it. The great number of people comes to the Dead Sea for a particular treatment, so it is worth checking, whether the hotel has a pool with the Dead Sea water, the SPA center, to specify the cost of procedures.
Besides, it is worth checking, whether a food is included into the price. Ein Bokek is a tourist place, but without wide choice of restaurants. In case of rest on the Dead Sea I would recommend to book the hotel with a half-board.
Still it is necessary to check the presence of the beach near the hotel, and what it represents. I recommend checking out the hotel at the Dead Sea via the following link:
You will find in it both hotels and “zimmers”. For any choice of hotel, first of all it is necessary to pay attention to the feedback from visitors.
