“Outspan in Israel”

published 18/01/2008

Prorelaxing, friendly, clean, lots to do

Conslong flight, guns in view, airport politics

We went to Eilat for our honeymoon in March 2006. I was 7 months pregnant at the time so knew I would be limited to do all activities, but this wouldn't stop my husband. I found booking the holiday hard as their are only a few operators that go to Israel, but it is getting easier to find them. I...

Prosea, sun and more if affinities

Conslack of culture

I have lived in Israel for almost 3 years now and I plan to deliver my opinion each site which I visited. Eilat...priviledged destination of the fortunate French, the rich Americans... and the young people without a penny who will camp in a field. Around Eilat, it is the desert, a choking and...

Prosee article

Its many years since I’ve been to Eilat but I still have very fond memories of the modern Israel. I backpacked around Egypt and Israel and Eilat was my last port of call. As with all backpackers after three months of travelling I was broke, Eilat was a good place to find casual work. The...

ProHot weather, water sports, and great hotels.

ConsAll entertainment costs money!

Eilat, is the glamourous holiday resort in Israel, situated next to the the desert, (similar to Las Vegas in that way)It is also next to the sea. Being Jewish, and with half my family living in Israel, I go to Jerusalem a lot, but i much prefer Eilat. Israel has a reputation, for having many...

“Eilat - a dream holiday”

published 09/02/2001

ProExcellent diving and cheap CDs

ConsEating out in restaurants is pretty expensive

I had always imagined Israel to be a bit like the North African countries that I'd visited so I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived in Eilat. It is a very modern resort but it also has lots of little market stalls down by the beach promenade which gives a kind of seventies, hippy feel to it...

“A bit of a let down”

published 08/07/2000

ProIt's hot, dophins, camels

ConsTouristy, expensive, remote

Now, I love Israel and will be back there like a shot when I can afford it, but there is something about Eilat that is so ordinary after the rest of the country which I found quite unnerving. I spent 10 days in Israel with my girlfriend and her friend in 1999 and it was the best holiday of my...

“Eilat in its glory”

published 12/02/2006

ProWarm, Differant, Lots to do...

ConsToo much to do in a week

My daughter has lived in Eilat for many years, and I myself finally went out there last year, not sure what to expect. But I was pleasantly suprised... Eilat is a busy and young city, with so much to do in the day as well as the night. There are so differant types of hotels, from 5* deluxe to the...

“Eilat / Israel”

published 09/08/2000

ProClimate, loads of history, swim with dolphins

ConsQuestionning at the airport

I visited israel in the winter of 1997 and stayed at the Seraton four points hotel in Eilat. This is a nice hotel but you can use the Red Sea across the road which is nicer and has a great pool and jacuzzi. Although Eilat itsself is nothing spectacular, it is a great base from which to visit the...
