I wasn't impressed by this hotel, although we were probably in the wrong season and not in an all-in module. The buffet was not very good and drinks very expensive. There is nothing around that was open for other options of food.

Nice hotel at the area not far from the beach. 40cm depth children pool and evening children dancing make it good enough to stay with children. There's a small children playing area at the back yard with toy house, swing and children slide. Also there's always not spicy food children can eat. Staff are polite and attentive. There's a shuttle... More

Hotel was very good and worth paying extra for sea view. Lots of beach space with loungers and parasols. You can use the beach and pools of the Radisson next door. Good shuttle free to Aqaba a few times a day. Staff are polite BUT do not eat in the restaurant. There are too few staff so impossible to find... More

Stayed here a week. Rooms are good and lots to do in the hotel and adjacent hotels. Not too far from Aqaba. Restaurants and bars are well presented and staff are great. Had a three room apartment, room size is good, three showers and each room an independent AC unit.

We spent a week in this hotel in August 2015. The temperature was around 38-42 celsius degrees. We arrived to the hotel at 7am and we could go to our ready rooms. We could eat free breakfast too. The hotel crew was nice and helpful. There is package checking at the reception beside a metal detector gate. The rooms, the... More
