Service was amazing- staff often checked in with me. The room was beautiful with a great view and bed was super comfortable and it was clean. Free breakfast buffet was so great with so many choices, and the restaurants were good choices and best experience. The show at night had great singers and a good belly dancer- it’s at the bottom by Dead Sea- it can get too hot- should look at higher options or indoor.

The rooms need a renovation for sure. The breakfast was too crowded and the management of staff was poor in the breakfast area. I didnt receive any VIP packages as it was promised so dont get fooled by the expedia vip sign, its a fraud.

everything was good, one thing to mention is the room says it’s a sea view in ishtar, but my view was blocked with olive trees which was very fristrating since you pay extra to have a room in ishtar

Not worth the hype! Worst customer service ever; they didn’t seem to represent the core values of the Kimpenski brand; I should have trusted my previous experiences and gone to Marriott, by far better customer service and even better prices.
