Visiting the Dead Sea is a must when visiting Jordan and in the end it is quite hard to do it anywhere other than at Amman Beach. According to the guide book, there are two beaches, one cheaper and scruffier than the other and I suspect this would have been perfectly adequate but our taxi driver clearly thought he should...

I've found this difficult to review because while I agree that at 20 dinars it is chronically overpriced, if you want to float in the Dead Sea and are not staying there, you really don't have much choice. So, my suggestion would be to pay the 20 dinars but to stay a while to get good value for your money.... More

we went here as part of our G Adventures tour- we only paid for lunch - a hot & cold buffet which was average but edible (both for meat eaters and vegetarians) and drinks. Changing rooms were limited and pretty grubby (showers especially but hardly surprising given amount of mud about!). Had a decent sized pool which was great to... More

I think that 20JD its to much but if you dont stay in any hotel with private beach you dont have a choice. Beach is small but enought because you will not stay there for long time (0,5-1h). You should try put to your body black mud - its good experience and good for skin. After that you have to... More

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
