It was a nice hotel with a good size room - a king bed and seating area. The bathroom was fine with a tub/shower combo. My room was quiet and had a Red Sea view . The in room coffee maker was just OK, not like the Nespresso machine in other hotels. The Red Sea is right in front with a small swimming area and a covered area to stay out of the sun a bit. The pool was very nice but there was no food or bar service when I was there. the breakfast area and breakfast food was very enjoyable. The front desk personnel were VERY nice, especially the woman on duty. So nice to have professionalism and a “can do” attitude when checking in.

We recently spent a couple of days here. The room was spacious and well equipped. Our patio faced a semi-private pool, however the music blasting from the adjacent "Village Beach" marred the experience.. The bed was comfortable and we were able to sleep well. The breakfast buffet was better than average, with the usual fresh salads, cheeses, baked goods etc. Custom omelettes and excellent coffee enhanced the breakfast.

We came for summer vacation with 3 children, we've got 2 rooms& breakfast. The hotel is accessible. The rooms are big, with balcony, shower, t.v with Yes channels, Nespresso coffee machine and all you need. The hosts are very kind, they give you the feelings that you are in a little family.It's worth every penny/ shekel/dollar/euro/pound you pay.

We stayed at "The Reef" hotel for a weekend. This was our first time in this hotel and we are impressed. The old hotel that been here was replaced by a new boutique renewed beautiful hotel that together with its unique location has a unique combination: Beautiful well maintained specious rooms, luxurious atmosphere, great service with attention to details, and for the divers/red see enthusiasts among us - its a few steps away from the best coral reefs in Eilat. Breakfast is diverse, fresh and delicious. The pool area is very nice and the beach is awesome. During a morning swim you see so many fish and, of course, as a diver, walking only 100 meters for a dive is very convenient. The proximity to the best fish restaurants around and even to an Aroma branch across the street and a decent supermarket are true advantages. The vibe on the beach in the evening / at night with greek music and positive people that came over to snorkel/dive (and not necessarily for shopping) is refreshing. Of course there are a few minor things we think that can be improved - we delivered these to the hotel management. All in all - we will be back!

I took my American girlfriend to Eilat for the first time. The room we stayed in was extremely dirty, stains on the carpet and on the bed; not a good experience for anyone who is not Israeli. After 2 nights, our toilet stopped working, and as soon as I flushed, brown water came out of the toilet flooding the entire bathroom. Went down to tell the reception, and the man told me to my face that he doesn't believe me and he will send a technician to check because he does not have any other available rooms to send us to for compensation. I went upstairs to pack my bags and book another place, and as my girlfriend was getting dressed, someone broke through the door without knocking (I'm not joking) and just started to look around. We immediately pushed him back to the hallway, packed everything and went to shout at the receptionist. At the same time, the technician was chasing me and apologizing, since apparently he was told to just go in and check. Once he got to the reception he told the receptionist that there is a big problem to fix, and all of a sudden the receptionist started apologizing, and surprise surprise, he found an available room! Horrible situation, horrible place, and I would never stay there again. I recommend any other hotel in Eilat. Just not this awful place.

In my opinion, by far the best hotel in Eilat. Right on the beach, out of the hustle and bustle. Clean, well kept, super helpful and friendly staff. Room tip: go for the rooms on the ground floor, with the private pool.
