The following hotels offer plenty of peace and quiet. Those who want to travel the whole day and require only a place to lay their head at night should consider other options – cabins or other cheap accommodation in the Judaean Desert. The Dead Sea hotels are for those who want to enjoy the Dead Sea and all the facilities that only big hotels can offer: spas, different kinds of pools, massages and maybe a half-day tour to Masada. Note that there are not many places to eat out in the surrounding area, so be sure to check whether the price of your stay includes three square meals or not. Some of the big hotels have restaurants and pubs.
Isrotel Ganim Dead Sea
This hotel was recently renovated and they did a very good job. There are two pools filled with Dead Sea water and one with freshwater. The food is great and the staff are friendly and professional. The hotel is not located directly on the shore of the Dead Sea but very close by, about two minutes’ walk away. The price range of the hotels varies quite dramatically from season to season so I haven’t included the prices here, but I will say that in this hotel you get better value for money than in others.

This hotel is located right on the shore of the Dead Sea at Ein Bokek. It consistently features on lists of the best hotels on the Dead Sea. The spa includes a Turkish bath (hammam), sauna, sulfur pools and a freshwater pool.
Daniel Dead Sea
This great hotel is also located on the shore of the Dead Sea at Ein Bokek. It offers all the facilities that you would expect from a large hotel. Also offers full board, as there are not a lot of good eateries in the area. There is a floor without children for those wishing to enjoy a quieter vacation.
