This hotel has discreet refinement and luxury, and is located in a stunning area on the seaside. The only bad part: the airport runaway is very close.

    Location 6.19 /10

    At the city limit of Eilat, towards the Egyptian border, right on the Red sea. Allow 5 minutes from the airport. The hotel is located close to shopping centres, bars, restaurants and all the nocturnal animations of Eilat.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    Very spacious, the rooms of the Meridien are all suites, each with a living-room and one or more bedrooms, depending on the category. Decorated with a lot of taste, in notes of beige and gold, they have ultra-complete facilities including air-conditioning, a mini-bar, a safe, telephones and TVs with a Nintendo console, "ŕ la carte" movies, Internet connection, pay TV, facilities for tea and coffee... Larger then the usual bathroom in Eilat, there is a bathtub and a hair dryer. All the suites have a balcony or a terrace, with teak furniture and a private garden with jacuzzi for the Garden Suites. Room service is available 24 hours a day. A new thing in 2006: all the rooms are equipped with plasma screen TVs.

    Overview 8.45 /10

    The first thing that moves you, upon arrival at the Meridien Eilat, is the view of the Red sea and the Jordanian mountains. A view almost everywhere in this high-standard and bright establishment, offering 246 rooms, two lobbies, two restaurants, small shops, living-rooms, reception rooms and a nice fitness centre. Viewed from the outside, this 6-level building is not really attractive. But once you're inside, you will discover a very charming and refined atmosphere, conceived around a large central swimming pool opening to the sea. There is a club for kids -very well equipped and for those sleeping late, a disco.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    Located under the reception area, in a very bright space, thanks to a large sun lounge, the main restaurant offers breakfast and dinner kosher buffet-style. The selection is varied and the Oriental and international specialities abound. At the ''Tricolor'' restaurant, serving specialities of fish and great "ŕ la carte" sushi, there is an elegant atmosphere. During the day, you can eat simple dishes at different snack-bars, located close to the swimming pool and the beach.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    Built on a rocky coast without too much sand, the Meridien remedied this annuyance by building a teak platform on the seaside. The establishment boasts the only real private beach of Eilat. A bridge allows you to go directly to the beautiful clear water. The beach of the Meridien is also one of the most peaceful of the site. Lots of water sports can be enjoyed not far from here.

    To know

    This very nice hotel, opened two years ago, has a big inconvenience: located on the edge of an airport runaway, it bears the daily noise from the take offs and the landings of the airplanes. However, the Meridien remains one of the best hotels of Eilat, equipped with a video and computer system, Internet in the rooms, from where you can see TV images from the club for kids or the disco.

    When we were there, in March 2006, the hotel was undegoing a few renovations, especially the swimming pool and the sun deck ( all hardwood floors facing  the Red sea).

    A new bar was scheduled to open. Lots of shows and interactive animations are held here.

      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.
