After reading a few reviews I was wondering if we also went to this place ... the reviews are awful ... and I had a really good experience here. I have to say, we were there with a large group, so maybe that makes adifference, although that should not be the case. So, my experience: we arrived and had lunch... More

For 20 jd it seems to be the most economical choice for a beach in the area. If you just want a quick dip in the Dead Sea and shower off then it's with it. The changing rooms are filthy with feces stained underwear left from the previous day on the ground. The pool was no cleaner with strange floating... More

The place is ok to visit dead sea and enjoy the one time experience of dead sea. The cost to enter the public tourist beach (Amman Beach) is 20 JD (May 2014) (with swimming pools). But if you can shell out an extra JD's , Many hotels also sell day passes that include full use of hotel facilities as well... More

During our trip through Jordan last week we stayed in this place for about 2-3 hours. It's the ideal spot to float in the Dead Sea and relax a little bit at the swimming pool. There's a little beach from where you can float in the Dead Sea, there are showers to wash off the salty water and there is... More

This is no beach and no tourist place. If you're looking for a quick dip in swimming pool, maybe. The changing rooms/ showers are filthy, doors don't lock. Cleaning was sleeping on the floor by the sinks. The "beach" is covered in cigarette butts, cans, bits of rubbish. There were workmen bucketting sand all around, tipping wheel barrows next to...

We knew we would only want a quick dip to say we had floated in the Dead Sea, so decided to go to the public beach rather than book an overnight stay at one of the 5* hotels on the Dead Sea. 20JD entry fee, an increase from 12JD which I had read about before hand . Locals pay 10JD... More

The dead sea experience was great. Floating on the sea and applied the mud mask all over the body. But with paying JD 20, the place not as expected. The locker and changing room was messy. And the gents shower room was not working and they did not informed prior. Better to go in the resort.

We took a last minute car and driver to the Dead Sea and Bethany. This was a spur of the moment trip and we were reliant on the driver's knowledge. He generally got things just right but this place was a "dive". Horrible and dirty facilities and suitable only if you dont care for hygiene. The best thing was that... More

In no way do I regret having gone to float I the Dead Sea. It is a bucket-list sort of experience. However...as Australians we were astonished to be asked to pay 20JD each for entry to this "public" beach area. For the 20JD, we were given access to an outdoor pool, change rooms and cold showers that dribbled out of... More
