          Beautiful hotel, excellent service, loved of course the opportunity to swim in the Dead Sea! We had a Junior Suite, ground floor which opened out onto the pool (well, one of them) - luxurious bathroom, extremely comfortable beds, a true oasis on the Dead Sea.

          end of october is usually fine warm but not hot there, not sure if pools are heated - no need I suppose. I have seen no kids facilities other than the pool - but there might be hidden.
