I stayed at the Kempinski for the weekend of my birthday in November for some scuba diving. It is depressing being away from family and friends for your birthday, so when the staff gave me a birthday cake and sang 'Happy Birthday' in the restaurant, it made me feel right at home. What impressed me most was that they did... More

This hotel is by far the best choice in Aqaba and offers 5* facilities in a 5* location. It should, however, work a bit on service quality. We spent 3 nights in Kempinski, including the New Year of 2015. Actually, timing was the reason for one of the flaws: as the hotel planned some grand gala dinner on the New... More

Great service, very kid friendly (baby's stuffed animals arranged on her bed in cute new patterns daily), lovely sandy beach. The only issue with Kempenski in Aqaba -- sub par food. Breakfast is decent, but not great. If you are willing to get out and walk for meals, Romero at the Yacht Club is great, but the food at the... More

Again, after being totally awestruck with the service and staff at the Kepinski in Ishtar, we were shown the same service and quality in the Kepinski in Aqaba. The place was beautifully kept and presented, the staff were polite and efficient. I highly reccomend this hotel for a weekend away or foe a few days R&R.

We were looking for a couple of days of relaxation, warmth and the possibility of swimming. Took the JETT bus from Amman to Aqaba and arrived to the hotel by 1pm. The location of the hotel was fantastic, just a couple of minutes from the bus station and also walking distance to the town. It is a very modern hotel... More

We arrived late to this hotel from Jordan around 8pm at night. We checked in and were told we had a bedroom with 2 single beds and we couldn't push them together, as they were fixed to the wall. We had paid for a double panoramic view room and this wasn't available. My husband and i refused to sleep in... More

Booked on line though booking.com. The site said it was the last room available them in a couple of weeks advertised rooms 25% off. Entrance to the hotel cold and un ascetic with security checks galore. Like entering an airport terminal with no signs or welcome.
