The location is great. The location is great. Remind yourself when you eat your cold food, cold onion rings and cold Reuben sandwich. You are there for the location. Just the location. This will help you deal with the lousy food you are about to consume. Enjoy the cold, and kind of crappy food, but it's a great location.

I loved this market. It's somewhat small, but it's safe and it has the best selection of artisan handicrafts. I purchased an indigo table cloth and a hand embroidered runner. Some of the souvenirs are cheap, but there are true gems here. I had my taxi cab wait for me. Here is a tip, bring cash, there isn't an ATM in the market. Many of the stalls do not accept Visa.

t's not a 5 star hotel. I want to emphasize that the hotel ads that say it's 5 star are wrong. I arrived for a late check-in and I wanted help with my bags. There wasn't an employee to help me. The room was ok in terms of space and I loved our private deck. I paid extra for a club floor and deck. The club floor is a joke. It opens at 11 a.m. and closes at different times throughout the day, and it closes at 9 p.m. It's not a true business club. The bathroom is circa 1968, so think of staying in your grandma's house. The towels are rough, cheap and something I would expect from a health club or YMCA. The bathroom door was rotting and the toilet lid was ajar. The mattress is also circa 1968, so your back will hurt the following morning. The free wifi that was part of the club floor is a lie. It's free in the lobby. So, all the hotel guests swarm to the lobby in the evening, which slows down the Internet. The business lounge doesn't have wifi! You can use 2 Pcs in the lounge, which closed at 9 pm. It opens at 11 am so it's useless. Note: Do not plan to get a great deal of work done at this hotel. The tiny gym has a few cardio machines in the sane room with the whirlpool. The humidity and smell would make a serious workout impossible. Given that the primary tourist at the dan panaroma is Russian, expect the lobby to be noisy at night. Tight clothing, high heels, tiger prints, and full figures are the norm, it's not a South Beach crowd. The Eilat tourism videos that you see on YouTube do not apply here. Our television remote was broke so was our in-room safe. Breakfast was ok. The coffee is horrible, it's worth the wait in the espresso line. I mean wait. You will wait. The Internet doesn't work in the restaurant, so no reading on your iPad at breakfast. The hotel is a solid 3 star property, fine for the budget minded Russian and Ukrainian tourist. I suggest that Americans wanting a 5 star property look elsewhere.

The hotel is wonderful but please travelers do not eat any meal other than your complimentary breakfast in the morning. The hotel is wonderful but this restaurant is awful in the evening. For example, on Saturday night, they closed off the restaurant area for no obvious reason other than to make sure that tables remained clean. A few of us doing business here were served food in the dark bar! The waiters turned on the lights every now and then, so that we could see what we were eating. I had the salad with salmon, but of course, the chef forgot the salmon. The meal experience tonight was deplorable. Cold fried calamari. Chicken curry with a faux-curry sauce that resembled tasteless vomit. It was also cold. I was hungry from a long day of work, so I just covered the entire tasteless mess with tabasco. The french fries were cold. I was thinking, I should walk but I'm just hungry and tired. Only eat in the hotel restaurant if you are truly too exhausted to walk across the street. It's a shame that such a great hotel would denigrate its name by serving such abhorrent food. Please take my advice and be careful. Don't waste your money eating this inferior food. It's not worth it.

I finally found someone who I could trust to fix my frozen pipe issue in an honest, caring, reliable, and affordable manner. I had Arc insulate my garage and kitchen, after the builder sold me a home with shoddy insulation. Jay arrived on time for an estimate. He is honest and professional. HIs team kept me informed and during his work, my frozen pipe thawed. When I asked his team for the bill, they said, no worry, just call the office. No hassles. Well done! I highly recommend ARC.
