Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Astral Village is set just back from the seafront and is aimed primarily at couples with children. Unlike most of its competitors, this establishment provides accommodation in the form of 1 storey bungalows set amid the vegetation on its grounds. The facilities here are pretty basic but the decor has been modernised. Plus, half of the rooms come with their own kitchenette, which is great for those who'd like to keep an eye on the pennies in this otherwise relatively expensive seaside resort village.

    Location 9.72 /10

    The hotel stands in the 4th line of buildings behind the seafront in a quiet, otherwise rather uninteresting part of the resort village with just a few shops and a mini market nearby. The beaches are around a 10 minute walk away whilst the airport is 10 minutes away by taxi.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    It might be worth noting that the maximum capacity of the hotel's 182 guest rooms is 3 people, so larger families will undoubtedly find them rather cramped! The rooms are also pretty small, with a floor area of 16 to 18m², and dark, which is a shame. However, the decor is rather modern and the colour scheme of brown and white a matter of taste, so you have to appreciate the effort. Amenities include a cathode-ray television tucked away in a unit, a refrigerator, a welcome tray, and free Wi-Fi. The bathrooms, meanwhile, are well-maintained and all come with a bathtub, whilst hair-dryers are available at reception.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The general low-key appearance of the Astral Village makes a nice change from the high-rise blocks making up Eilat's hotel scene. The entrance is clean and pleasant, leading through to the lobby, where the bar is open until midnight, and then through out onto the terrace overlooking the pool. The furniture here is perfectly comfortable; it's just a shame it seems to have seen better days and the fact that it's white doesn't help either! The supervised swimming pool at is unpretentious, edged with wooden boards and surrounded by deckchairs, parasols and a handful of four-poster daybeds, though the surroundings still somehow feel rather empty and sad. The guest rooms, meanwhile, are designed in the form of cottages and are arranged in clusters set amid beautiful floral vegetation. An ironing room is provided for guests' convenience, along with a bright, spacious, and well-equipped kids' club facing the pool area, so parents can easily keep a watchful eye on their little ones.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The hotel only operates on a half-board basis, serving breakfast and dinner. The 280-seat dining room features traditional decor and is bright and spacious, but do watch your elbows, as the tables seem to be very close together. Meals here are served as a buffet of Israeli and international cuisine, although theme nights are also held every night. If you get peckish at lunchtime there's the poolside snack bar, although the menu is rather conventional and frankly pretty limited!

    Beach

    The beach is a 10 minute walk away and there is a charge for using it (about £2 for a deckchair and a parasol), although towels can be obtained free of charge from reception. The beaches of Eilat are a far cry from the Maldives, and although the water is crystal clear, the sand is pretty coarse and the seabed rather rocky, so look out if you've got sensitive feet!

    To know

    Half of the guest rooms have their own kitchenette. The guest rooms to the far end of the hotel grounds overlook a road, so you'd best avoid these if you're easily bothered by the noise of traffic.

      Despite the fact that it stands opposite the airport, for better or worse, the Astral Sea Side is nevertheless the only 4 star hotel in Eilat overlooking the beach. Having been newly renovated in 2008, the decor here is certainly modern, but you'll soon see beyond the surface the lack of finish underneath. The guest rooms are large and the facilities decent enough so the hotel does offer good value for money on the whole.

      • Location 7.0

      Watch out, you're about to fall in love! This hotel, the most charming in the city, is a real favourite! Contrary to the many enormous hotels found in the area, this establishment is made up of several smaller buildings peacefully nestled in amongst the well-maintained greenery on the hillside. The amenities in the guest rooms are fantastic, the services excellent, and the panoramic view from the swimming pool is truly unique... The only negative point is that you'll have to get used to the often noisy, incessant comings and goings of the electric cars that take guests to and from their rooms.
