I don't know If it's something that I said or as a valued guest just simply requesting them to please waive my 11-year brother as an extra charge but the front desk clerk Mohammad took everything personally. I came to front desk to check-in and I thought a child can go in free. Most hotels in the US, Canada and... More

We stayed here for one night and after a busy day touring Petra this hotel was a dream come true. We couldn't believe our eyes when we looked over the balcony from our room - infinity pool, beach, spa, pool bar and so much more. The staff were lovey and couldn't help us any more, if they tried. The famous... More

Although it could not be called cheap, the hotel offers so much that you won't regret the choice: nicely decorated rooms facing the sea, modern and well equipped bathrooms, swimming and infinity pools of different levels, welcoming and helpful staff, huge and delicious buffet breakfast. Couldn't ask for more.

This hotel has beautiful rooms and the decor is very pleasant. With its own private beach, do not forget to carry a waterproof camera. One reads about Red Sea being rich with aquatic life. What I did not expect was that one dip in with a camera and I could capture fish and little aquatic life. The breakfast was delicious... More
