Good spot for the dead sea, 20 JOD entry fee, you cannot have your own food, water is okay. I got some mud all over me for 3 JOD, not sure if their souvenir shop is expensive however overall experience was great. They have dressing rooms and shower.

The entry is indeed a rip-off, but few other alternatives are available around. While the upper part of the complex with swimming pools looks fine, the beach itself is more like an excavation site, with holes and heaps of sand scattered around. It is also not very clean and has a rather narrow access to the sea, so can easily... More

It seems the only way to experience the Dead Sea is to pay to enter a resort. This as it turns out is the cheapest option at 20JD, rather than 40 or 80JD for the other options. The strip of beach was pretty small and grim, and the less said about the changing rooms the better! The smell was terrible,... More

This was my only disappointment in beautiful Jordan, I highly recommend to avoid it! They make you pay JOD20 just for the entrance (which is a FORTUNE for Jordanian standards), and when you get in you realize that beach is a rubbish dump. It's super dirty, full of stray dogs, and those people are just trying to rip you off... More

I agree with other reviewers that at 20JD the beach is overpriced. Apart from access to the beach, what you get for your money is the use of changing rooms, lockers which don't lock (luckily we could leave our valuables with our driver), showers with limited water pressure, swimming pool and cafe. We were warned that it can get crowded... More

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
