We stayed at Olive Branch twice now with our group. It is a wonderful facility beyond just the rooms. The meeting room is large and accommodating. The food is delicious and staff always helpful. My favorite aspect to the Olive Branch is the quiet rural location that is surrounded by peaceful hills and greenery. A beautiful place to stay.

The hotel is a bit hard to find. Our Jordanian driver missed the turn and had to ask for directions, so keep an eye out for the small sign at the intersection. If you do miss it, most people in the area seem to know the location and can give directions. The view, especially the lights at night, is very... More

We spent 2 nights at the hotel in the newly built garden rooms (strongly recommended!!!!). The hotel is simple, very clean and service is top notch. The family running... More

This is a family owned hotel which offers clean comfortable rooms. The location is quiet and peaceful. The room I was in was below the main building.

As many reviewers have said, the view is wonderful. As a birdwatcher, I was glad to find opportunties to ramble around the hillside next to the hotel, finding little owls, hoopoes and lesser whitethroats. the rooms are clean and the food reasonable. However, the biggest plus was the staff. From the polite waiters to the friendly guard who have me... More
