Gay Friendly Hotels Eilat

Guide to Gay Friendly Hotels in Eilat Israel (2022 Updated)

Israel has a very lively gay scene. Tel Aviv has plenty of rainbow-coloured flags, a huge Gay Pride Parade and plenty of hang-outs. Haifa and Jerusalem have smaller gay communities and there are a few gay friendly hotels Eilat. The resort town of Eilat is gay friendly, although the scene is mostly Israeli tourists.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights in Israel are considered the most developed in the Middle East.Although same-sex sexual activity was legalized in 1988, the former law against sodomy had not been enforced since a court decision in 1963.

Eilat is a southern Israeli port and resort town on the Red Sea, near Jordan. Its beaches are noted for their calm waters, like Dolphin Reef, where the aquatic mammals are often spotted. Known for snorkeling and diving, Coral Beach Nature Reserve has buoy-marked underwater trails among fish-filled reefs. Nearby Coral World Underwater Observatory Marine Park has a glass-enclosed observation center submerged offshore.

Welcome to Aria the luxurious suites hotel in Eilat. We promise you a pampering and relaxing holiday along with activities for both the young and the adult. Enjoy the spectacular beach with direct private access to the hotel guests. Aria is rated at 5 stars according to the official Israeli Ministry of Tourism hotel rating .

Very good hotel. The rooms are very clean and spacious. Everything is very comfortable and useful. The staff is so friendly and thoughtful. The food is good and the service at the restaurant is great. The hotel has a very nice pool and a direct access to the sea from the pool area. Visited a lot of hotels in Eilat, and I think that this one is one of the best in matters of value to money. Very recommended.

Great vacation, the location of the hotel is great, the view of the pool is wonderful, the hotel has direct access to the sea. Service is good and the breakfast was amazing. Overall wonderful vacation. One thing that I was surprised about is that the hotel has a gym but you need to pay 25 NIS for a day if you want to use it, not so suitable for 5 stars hotel.

The room was very clean and spacious with direct access to the pool and sea. The atmosphere was very relaxing. The pool was not overcrowded which is a surprise considering it is July. We stayed on half board basis.

The food was excellent. Deserts being my favorite! Staff were all pleasant. The location is excellent. With direct access to the sea for great snorkeling. It is also a few minutes walk from the mall. I highly recommend this hotel and would gladly return!

Pros:
1. Location: Close to everything you might want. Right on the beach. Views from the room are spectacular as well as from the dining area and the pool.
2. Price: This hotel prices are more affordable compared to other 5 stars hotels in Eilat.
3. Service: They do absolutely the maximum to make you happy. There is a nice treat every afternoon. Don’t miss it,
4. Rooms: We have been to >10 different accommodation options in Eilat and this is, by far, the most specious room we’ve stayed in. Comfortable beds and all facilities are great.
5. Breakfast: Lovely buffet with huge variety to choose from. Great service.

Cons:
1. We’ve spent some time thinking of one, but so far no luck.

The hotel is superbly located just off the busy promenade. You can walk 2 min on the deck and reach the mall, shops and water-sport, or literally step off into the red sea from across the hotel pool. Yes, skip the pebbles and sea urchins, just grab the snorkel and go swimming!

Our suite, number 150, was amazing. At the southern end of the hotel, it was very peaceful, with a private huge outdoor jacuzzi and direct path to the beach deck and pool. There is a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, another sleeping room for 2, separate 2nd shower/toilet and a living room with kitchenette.

Perfectly organized work, highly professional, well trained stuff mean that all of your needs are taken care of. The suits are impeccably clean. I’ve never seen such high quality of cleaning.
Besides, we happened to forget one valuable thing in the room. On coming back we found it exactly where we left it.
Our room was cleaned by Raed and Tamer. Well done, guys! Not a single remark! Congratulations to the manager of the hotel – you have devoted, honest people !

One little remark : the pillows are too big, high, it’s advisable to make them less full for comfort.

Aria is bound to flourish and to succeed with such management and people working like that.

Welcome to Isrotel Agamim, your Eilat “home away from home.” Isrotel Agamim aims to make your visit as relaxing and enjoyable as possible, which is why so many guests continue to come back year after year.

Should time allow, Eilat Action is a popular attraction that is within walking distance.

Isrotel Agamim puts the best of Eilat at your fingertips, making your stay both relaxing and enjoyable.

This hotel is perfect for couples. The big attraction is the pool. It’s magnificent, with all sorts of unbelievably comfortable lounging options, beds, rocking lounge chairs, hammocks and the pool goes into a canal that wraps around the hotel and there are rooms with private access to the pool. We choose this option and the only warning I would give is that Israeli hotels don’t heat their pools and the pool was freezing so I’m not sure that upgrade was worth it.

Other than that, everything was outstanding. The service was impeccable and everyone was friendly and helpful. The breakfast ( which, in topical Israeli fashion, comes with the price) was so delicious. Every area of the hotel was immaculate. We had the best time and I would definitely go again.

This hotel gives out a relaxing and intimate vibe. Recently renovated in a modern style it was a pleasure to walk in its grounds. Everything is so clean and poolside is full of beautiful flowers and trees. The food is by far the best I’ve had in all the (non-boutique) hotels. Not the same, as per the usual Israeli hotel. The staff was pleasant. Really, everyone, we had contact with. And of course the pools and pool area with they cool comfortable chairs. They have a small nice kiddy pool too.

Will note some of the least pleasant experiences from the balcony you might smell an egg smell from a nearby water treatment plant. The hotel is not on the from line to the beach. Smoking wasn’t enforced in balconies. Since the rooms are close to the pool this is problematic. Same for the outdoor area where food is served. The shaded area is reserved for the smokers, of all.

Breakfast is usually included , and is pretty good but a lot of waiting if you want an omelette . I have to admit that i have seen better breakfasts in Israeli Hotels, it is a bit crowded and not enough space between the isles.

The staff are just wonderful , the security people respond quickly , the room service is very quick and offers pretty good dishes. water is sold at the bar at 14 shekels per large bottle which is a ripoff, to bad the Hotel does not leave the drinking water out of the “money making” products . there are coolers around the hotel with free water, but still i think there is room to rethink the price of the water.

The hotel is not as big as I thought. It is also a little walk to the center of the boardwalk in Eilat. But it isn’t so bad a walk.

All rooms face the pool. But there are the special rooms on the ground floor that from the terrace you jump right into a private pool that flows into the main pool. So if you want that luxury as for that type of room. And there is a gate so that if you have small kids you don’t need to worry about them falling into the pool from the terrace.

The grounds are spotless. We have breakfast only which as elaborate as Israeli breakfasts are. We ate dinner there one night and also it was delicious buffet with great selections for every taste.
The best part was the massage we got there. I highly recommend you ask for Dorit. She is professional and knows her business.

There was no entertainment while we were they but we went in an off season time.
