Here are some of our favorite Eilat Hotels…

Isrotel Agamim


The Isrotel Agamim is positioned more as a boutique hotel rather than the larger high-rise hotel complexes – although with 280 rooms it is still a big hotel. It is also a bit cheaper than the large high-rise hotels – yet with 4-stars it still has a lot of luxury.

The Agamim regularly gets good reports in Secret Tel Aviv – big pluses include the breakfast staying open till 12pm and nice pool. Negatives include being a 5-minute walk from the tourist centre of the city. Some of the ground floor rooms have a private terrace and direct access to canals leading to the pool.
