Hashgacha

They are certified Kosher from the local Rabbanut. (Ein Bokek)
The meat is NOT Glatt.
The chicken is Rabbanut Mehadrin.
The cooking is Bishul Yisrael according to the Rema, not the Beit Yosef.
The vegetables are Gush Katif. The cabbage is NOT.

The Mashgiach says, the hard cheeses are not Mehadrin.

Breakfast:
- Breads, pastries, cakes - parbaked or raw frozen , Chasam Sofer Petach Tiqwa
- Packaged yogurts and puddings - some are B"datz . Rubin, but be careful some could be cholov nochri, check packaging
- Grapefruit and Orange Juice from Spout - PriMor ,Chasam Sofer Petach Tiqwa
- Hard Round Cheeses on cutting board- Cholov Nochri
- Gvina Levana, cottage cheese - .....................
- Feta, Bulgarian Cheeses - He claims Belz
- Some type of butter spread- some are cholov nochri
- Fish- He says B"datz ( he says B"datz about alot of things....), but its usually just herring and mackarel
- Tuna - He says B"datz, but there is usually some type of leafy veggie in there i.e. parsley
- Instant Coffee Machine - Cholov Yisroel of some rabbi in Ashkelon
- Espresso Station - Milk is usually Mehadrin Tnuva, you can look at the bag (Yes milk comes in a 5 gallon bag)
- Hot Stations- Not really sure, they serve dinner there also which is fleishig, I'm guessing they switch the stations, but i wouldn't....
- Produce - He says B"datz ( he says B"datz about alot of things....)
- Cereals- some are cholov nochri


Lounge:
Basically the same cakes and fruits as breakfast.

Love this part of the review.

"The Le Meridien hotel was basically a nice hotel, and yet, something was off.  It was as if everyone was silently whispering F%&@ You to you all at once.  The front desk associate was standoffish, to say the least, and essentially said you get nothing, no breakfast or otherwise, because you are here on points.  I wondered if someone had painted a big P on my forehead when I wasn't looking.  I warned Won't Run For Miles in advance not to expect the best treatment, and I was kicking him, warning him not to get upset, as we stood at the front desk. "

Did the LM dead sea stop giving suites to plat members since the "suite nights upgrade" became an option?  :'(
I always got a suite just by being plat and the past 2 stays just got regular room...
it CAN be done!

What did they tell you when you checked in? No availability?
