Yes, they don't clean your room every day, and yes the beer is non-alcoholic (In my opinion you should expect this when traveling to country where 95% of the population practices Islam). I believe you can get alcohol at specific locations or at the duty free shop on/at the border/airport. However, our stay was nothing but pleasant. We had the... More

This hotel was recommended by our taxi driver - for obvious reasons - and we took a room for a night as the room was pretty clean and had AC. A pool was outside the restaurant and the beach right opposite of the highway. As women cannot really enjoy being on the beach on their own we hang out at... More

We planned to stay one day in Aquaba, but eventually stayed for 5 days. The people where very friendly and they had the possibility to dive which we did for the first time. A recommendation for anyone who wants to try diving. The rooms where good.

We stayed twice at this well located hotel opposite the coral reefs. We loved the warm welcome by the owner’s son and enjoyed our talks with him and his father. Both times we had nice rooms with good beds. The food is simple but tasteful and well cooked. They know what hotel guests appreciate and have good knowledge of driving... More

My friend and I stayed for two nights at different times of the week and it was like coming back home the second time. We were so looked after, especially since there is always someone trying to rip you off. Madi and all his brothers and cousins gave us all the privacy we wanted but also offered some great Arab...

My friend and I stayed here for two nights after backpacking for one week around Jordan. The hotel has the perfect location, right across from the beach with a great view and clean pool. The rooms had air conditioning, clean beds, nice shower/hot water and a fridge. In contrast to what others have said, we found the staff to be... More

It is a bit out of town but a fabulous location on the best beach in Aqaba. Totally picturesque with a large clean pool, massive relaxation area out the front and we went snorkelling in the Japanese garden reef out the front. The food is incredible and very fresh, even though more expensive than in town. Mahdi even helped us... More

We had booked 4 nights here, but changed it to 3. Because of 1 night extra by the Dead Sea. Upon arrival: ok check in- but no toilet paper in the room. This was fixed when we asked for it ... We ordered food and beer. Only when we drank the beer we realized it was alcohol free .. They... More

This resort is amazing! Even though the beds are a bit springy, the service is amazing and the setting/location is superb! I was helped with everything I needed even before I could think that I needed it. It is set right across the road from an amazing beach with great snorkeling and the view is absolutely wonderful, as you see... More

I would not call this place a hotel. We stayed for 4 nights, and not a single time did our room get cleaned. Which is really gross, since you can't flush toilet paper down the toilet and have to put it in the bin next to it. So this didn't get emptied. Also the bathroom door (glass) had a big... More
