The words cannot express the level of proficiency encountered at this resort. The service is the best we came across, the rooms, the heated pools and the food were just gorgeous.
For sure it sets a standard in hotel industry. The weakest point is the price you have to pay...I mean expect to pay for a draft 50 cl beer 15 euro. Outrageous...

Loved the Ishtar. The hotel was beautiful and the landscape stark. The breakfast buffet was amazing. And the Dead Sea bathing experience interesting.

The property was a bit tough for my elderly father - lots of steps and inclines. But we managed.

Beautiful buildings, excellent food, and very friendly service (albeit a little slow in the restaurants). We really enjoyed our stay here, using the private beach, pools, bars and restaurants. Our rooms were enormous and well equipped. We would stay here again.

Wow, an incredible place

First, upon arrival we got an upgrade to an amazing seaview room with terrace. Thank you! The beach to the dead sea though small, was really nice, and there were not that many people around. The sea temperature was good, we enjoyed the mud scrub. Enjoying the heated infinity pool during sunset was also one of a kind. Dinner in the buffet restaurant was simply amazing. Could not have asked for more. Service is exceptional throughout the hotel. Breakfast wasn't cheap, but it was top notch. The only thing which I found strange is that you have to pay to use the spa. As we had terrible weather on the second day, but we only had 1-1.5 hours, we did not want to pay the extra to use it. All in all, a truly special experience, we would like to come back BIG TIME.

Fantastic stay in a fantastic hotel,
Room , I wanted to live in
Service, I do not have the words to describe the perfection of politeness, kindness and discretion of the staff.
I need to add a remark concerning the amazing Sultan at the Dead Sea beach who took care of us sooo nicely
