We didn't stay in "hotel", just used their services for scuba diving. It worked very well and they were very helpful. We also did our AOWD license there. They also helped us to arrange daytrip to Wadi Rum and Petra. Prices were reasonable and everything worked just fine. The place is remote and not much to do there. We stayed... More

This is a great place when you're staying for a few days in Aqaba region to dive. There's nothing much here: no store, no restaurants in the neighbourhood. The public beach is a walk of five minutes away downhill. Inside the hotel there's just a nice snack bar not too expensive with simple dishes like kebab and salads where you... More

Thank you very much for sharing your experiences at International Arab Divers with the Tripadvisor community and the kind words of appreciation for our dive center. We agree with you, the South Beach is not advertised as a commercial town and therefore perfect for relaxing holidays away from the sometimes-bustling city. The location "on top of the hill" is also... More

This place is simple, neat, and extremely clean. Breakfast was good. We are snorkelers, not divers, so can't comment on diving. They gave us tips on where to snorkel for free. We wanted to go into Aqaba for dinner and were directed to a great seafood restaurant.

Clean, roomy rooms with beautifully hot shower. Lovely staff, nice surroundings. Excellent breakfast. You can order food any time of the day and it's not too expensive. Do not order the kebabs though. It is processed meat, not very nice. Everything else we had was perfectly good. Staying here is well worth the 10 minutes walk from the beach. Beautiful... More
