Con algo de tiempo de sobra antes de la boda, principal
motivo que nos trajo hasta Israel, decidimos tomarnos unos días de relax en las
costas del Mar Rojo. Por eso es que atravesamos todo el país en bus hasta su
extremo sur donde Israel bordea con Jordania y Egipto. Allí se encuentra la
ciudad de Eilat, un oasis en el desierto, es el blanco de turistas Europeos en
busca de calor, aguas frías cristalinas y tranquilas semejantes a un río, ...

I intended on asking them to hold onto my bag for me, but they just gave me my room early, which was nice. Also, the lady at the front desk indicated that they could book tours for me. That got me a little excited, so I made a last-minute change in plans. Today, I would go scuba diving, and tomorrow I'd go to Petra, someplace I've been dying to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Dan Eilat
Enjoyed our stay
Bed rooms clean and a nice size - sound proofing not all it should be - we were woken by next doors mobile phone at 4 one morning and had to listern to a rather loud conversation for 30 mins. Staff friendly, food very good. - bit of a bun fight on the busier days - made sure we sat well away from the main area. loveley location - right on the beach.
OK but not great
My wife and I stayed at the Dan Eilat during the first week of December. We paid a little more to stay here and were looking forward to a 5 star hotel. In my opinion, the hotel's about 10 years behind it's American counterparts. The rooms and communal areas are in real need of updating, and the sound proofing between adjoining rooms is abysmal. We had to move rooms to get away form our neighbours, because of the extreme noise transferrence. The staff are nice enough - typical Israeli surleyness, but very well meaning.
The pool area was kept beautifully clean and the quiet pool away from the waterslides and kids is a nice touch.
Eilat was wonderful and we will definitely return. For true 5 star luxury, I think it has to be the Royal Beach next time.
Flintstone Fun by the Sea
We hadn't been back to Eilat in 9 years but the Dan was a pleasure. Funky rooms, great pools, friendly staff and a water slide to keep the smaller children occupied for hours, looked over by vigilant lifeguards.
The food was awesome, but the quantities too huge.
We all can't wait to go back.
Best hotel in Eilat
By far! Stayed there three times to discover time and again the hotel is impeccable. Excellent service, comfortable room and the food.. ah, the food. Nothing like it in any hotel buffet. With the variety of lousy resturant that Eilat has to offer - this is a genuine pearl
Fabulous pool and beach;lots of families
Overlooking the Gulf of Eilat, the Dan Panorama Hotel caters to families. From the 3 swimming pools with slides and lazy river, to the 2 different kids clubs (one for under 10 set; other a free, computer/Internet playroom for teens) this hotel is terrific. We enjoyed the luxurious family suite, which had a king bed, sitting area, small kitchen table, bathroom with lapis inlay and separate, glass-enclosed toilet area and a separate room with 2 twin beds for kids. The breakfast buffet was almost too overwhelming it was so huge - and even the towel girl at the pool was pleasant. Aside from some lobby furniture that shows wear& tear; this hotel is a winner.
5 Star but not deluxe
We booked a family room to stay from around 28 December throuh to 4 January. We got an email a week beforehand to say they are fully booked but are happy to upgrade us to 2 doubles, one with a huge Terrace. The accommodations was fine, slightly dark and a bit gloomy retro style, but then you don't spend that long in the bedrooms. the views from the balcony were superb.
The Hotel I think was a bit of a mixed bag. The reception area is impressive, but i think the other communal areas are not what you'd expect from a deluxe hotel. the bar/lounge area and the bar are all a bit cut-off from the lobby of the hotel as so this tends to be a bit dead, lacking in atmosphere. The decor is marble in reception and retro carpet/furnishings everywhere else inc the bedrooms. The middle eastern restuarant at the back is very good and reasonable. The breakfast is all that you would expect, top notch. The pool is OK, but was a bit crowded when we visited at this time of the year. There is a bit of mad rush for chairs in the sunny areas as the sun disappears at 3pm. Thumping music by the pool tends to get on your nerves after a time - fine during the daily supervised pool side work-out but not all day - again not what you would expect from deluxe hotels at these prices.
The staff were friendly, we used the babysitting service and the babysitter was lovely to our children.
In summary - a good hotel - don't expect top deluxe luxury and then you won't be disappointed But I'm afraid at the prices that are being charged (I think this is the 3rd highest priced Hotel in Eilat behind Royal Beach and Herods Palace), I will stay somewhere else next time, as I reckon you can pay a lot less for the same facilities and service elsewhere, otherwise pay just slightly more and stay at the Royal Beach.
Very Good, but not Great
We stayed at Dan Eilat in May 2005. This is the third Eilat hotel we've been to so I have something to compare it to. Previously we had stayed at the Hilton Queen of Sheba and Permira Hotel. The main pros of staying at Dan are: (i) the hotel stands right on the beach with its own lounge chairs & beach attendant, (ii) the pool & the surrounding area is very clean & spacious, (iii) rooms are clean, most have beach view. The main & only con is sub-par SERVICE. We ordered a wake up call for 9:30, but they woke us up at 9 to enquire about a broken light, which we reported the night before. However, the Hilton had the same problem with service. Basically, if the most important thing to you is proximity to the beach, you should stay at Royal Beach, Dan Eilat or Herods. All other hotels claim they're on the beach, but they are either not directly on the beach or they're referring to the lagoon, not the beach where you'd like to swim/sun-bathe/etc. We enjoyed our stay at Dan Eilat, but the hotel wasn't anything special. Its beach is the only thing that makes the price worthwhile, in my opinion.
Won't return because of the service, lack of nonsmoking rooms.
The hotel is decorated in a neo-1950s style: nice bright colors, whimsical light fixtures and whacky carpet pattern designs. The facilities seem faded.
Israeli hotel breakfasts are always bountiful. Compared with the rest I've seen, this was the best. Imagine cheese tables, an omelette-quiche-ratatouille bar, various fruit salads, a number of different candied fruit compotes, olive bars, rolls, pies, delicious breads, Danish, cakes, coffees, cheesecakes, smoked fish assortments, fruit juices, a large selection of cold cereals and an amazing "Tea bar." You spoon any of about 10 tea leaf mixtures (e.g. mint, orange spice, Earl Grey, fruits, camomille, etc.) into self-contained teapots then fill it with boiling water.
My partner adds that the hotel is very family-oriented & that you may enjoy it if you have preteen children. There was a water slide that looked like fun.
However, the service was lacking in the sense that questions or requests were met almost with eye-rolling. It was as if any request was too much. We were never informed that the hotel has a shuttle service from the airport. While checking out, I saw the shuttle dropping people off at the hotel. When I asked whether the shuttle could take us to the airport the answer was no "because we know when planes are arriving but there is no way to know when they are leaving." This makes no sense to me.
On arrival we asked for a non-smoking room but were told that there were none. "If it smells of smoke we have a special spray to remove it." The room didn't smell of smoke, but had a dank, musty odor so I asked for the treatment. An employee came with a Windex-type spray bottle. The liquid smelled like lemonized dry-cleaning fluid, so I cancelled my request.
Can't wait to return
We stayed at the Dan Eilat during the Feb half-term a few years ago. It was a wonderful week, and we could not fault the hotel on anything.
The service was excellent, the food to a very high standard and the whole hotel was extremely clean.
The kids especially liked the pool area, with the water slide and waterfall. Even though it is one of the dearer hotels in Eilat, it is well worth every penny, and the atmosphere is very relaxed.
We are returning in Feb 2005 and we can't wait.
Our advise to anyone staying there is to go half-board, the choice of food is great and the chefs are very helpful, if you have any dietary requests. A must is the Friday night dinner.
One of the best Eilat has to offer
Spent 3 days (2 nights) at the Dan Eilat after hearing it was the best hotel in the city. Can't really compare, but it was, indeed, wonderful. Great breakfast, beautiful pool (with water slide), comfortable room, and excellent room service. Although it's among the 3 or 4 most expensive, I'd say it's worth it and I'd go there again.
