Fantastic Hotel
Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea had the best location. The room itself was huge with a outdoor patio facing the sea. I would definitely return back to this hotel and with the free full breakfast, it was fantastic. The choices of restaurants on site and activities was just amazing.

Don't go here for a romantic stay
I booked this stay as a romantic weekend with a "Private Beachside Dinner" in order to have a special night to propose to my girlfriend. The service when we arrived was excellent, and the resort was beautiful, but starting around noon it became overcrowded. It felt more like a club than a romantic and relaxing stay, and there were large groups of male guests who would oggle my girlfriend. Our stay was still nice though, but the "private" dinner that I reserved ruined our stay. I booked it and notified the staff that I planned on proposing to my girlfriend. It was supposed to be a "private beachside" dinner on the waterfront, as advertised on their website, but the "beach" was simply the sand in front of one of the villas without a view of the waterfront, and the "private" location had us next to a walkway where a dozen other guests walked by and stared at us. I requested my girlfriend's favorite song be played during dinner, and they confirmed that they would do so, but it was never played. The seafood course was overcooked and we did not eat more than a few bites of it, and the chef's signature course was decent at best. I paid as much for the dinner as I have for five-star michelin rated restaurants, but received a disappointing experience that I had to try to salvage in order to propose to my girlfriend. I complained to the hotel manager, and was reassured that I would be compensated for such a horrendous experience, but never heard back from them.

Almost perfect but
Hotel was great. Amazing service and location. There were however many flies in the facilities which was the only downside of the whole experience. The facilities are amazing and the views are unmatched.
