On a recent trip through Europe we enjoyed many great hotels (including The Adlon in Berlin and a personal favorite The American Colony in Jerusalem), but our favorite setting and hotel was The Kempinski in Aqaba, Jordan. A beautiful setting right on the Red Sea, great pool, wonderful spa, cocktails and cigars on the patio and the service from top... More

Throughout our Jordan trip, we stayed in 5 different places and the whole family including my daughters agree that this is the accommodation we enjoyed most (we stayed in three different Kempinski hotels, one movenpick and a luxury camp in Wadi Rum). All rooms have a view of the pool/beach which was really nice. I noticed that some of the... More

The hotel was in off-season, though it was new year's eve and the day after. We enjoyed excellent attention by all the staff in the hotel, especially a young manager by the name of Yazan, who immediately arranged for a baby-cot and seemed to be everywhere all the time. The hotel is actually pretty well kept and probably is the... More

We went for the first time to the Red Sea believing an amazing time was at hand. Man were we wrong. The hotel offered us a lower rate with winter and the fact we were one of only about 10 guests at the property during our stay. So much for the amazing breakfast buffet, which was only average, or dinner... More

Very nice hotel in AQABA Golf. Elegance style and very nice see view. I liked it too much. It is more expensive than the other 5 stars hotels but it really deserves. It is about 10 minutes walking from the shops and restaurants
