Officially the have minyanim three times a day, every day. That being said, it really depends how many frum people are staying there.
You may have an easier time getting a Minyan at the Royal hotel which is about 5-8 minute walk away.

Hi everyone, I'm trying to decide whether to do the Royal hotel or CO for two days. Royal would be $550 for two twin beds and breakfast. The CP would be about $250 (buying points) assuming I can call and have them open up  points availability. Do you guys know which hotel is more Kosher? I gather both are Rabanut but CP has a mashgiach you can talk to? Also, is the Royal a much nice hotel than the CP? Reviews from the CP scare me.

Thanks!

I stayed in the Ein Gedi kibbutz hotel last February and really liked it. The nearby Ein Gedi park was fantastic as always but the nearby Ein Gedi Spa (and beach) was expensive and horrible - it didn't even have Dead Sea mud!

I stayed in the Crown Plaza. What I did is I asked to speak the mashgiach and asked him based on hecsherim that i prefered what he had. You can call the Hotel and ask to speak to a Mashgiach. They are usually very helpful

It was ok, nothing special. I stayed in CP because of points and I had status at the time.

Most of those beaches including the ones at Ein Bokek and Neve Zohar dont have mud. Only the ones close to Yerushalayim have

You do it yourself or with a tour?
Can you do it yourself? If so, where do you go from CP dead sea?

Like mud you can scoop out from the seabed or a bin full of mud that was put there?
