I stayed at Darna one night before leaving Aqaba to go back to Amman. The staff was fantastic and threw us a deal for dinner, room, and breakfast. A bit of constructiton work is going on, but it didn't interfere with our stay. I highly suggest the fish dinner- enormous and fantastic! Breakfast is a nice buffet with a great... More

Some work in progress in April 2015 - but its pre-season now. Darna Village is well equipped, the rooms are simple, but clean, the staff very friendly, there is a quite big pool. WLAN is available, but just in the Pool-/Restaurant area. Breakfast and food is good. Beach is about 100 Meters away, public beach, no service (in April) and... More

They drive us to a nearby public beach and we just walked to the water and remedially were surrounded by colorful reefs and fish. Very friendly staff and reasonable price. Did not stay at the hotel but came back to eat a Jordanian speciality in the evening. We enjoyed it very much.

We stayed here for a few days at the end of our vacation to relax and to go to the beach. The hotel is nicely located close to the beach. The hotel makes a good impression on the first look, but if you look closer you see that it is not well maintained and the service is rather slow. The... More

We had a super stay at Darna Village. It is almost at the last beach of Aqaba (nº 4) and a very quiet place. It has a swimmingpool and you are 5 min. walk from the sea. The owner is kind, helps you out with everything and can give advise about what excursions to do. It is also an easy... More

We stayed here for one night to leave early to Wadi Rum. Great place with kind-of "bungalows" offering big rooms, tidy, clean and mostly working bath rooms. The have a terrace with an own pool and a bedouine tent to chill and relax. From there you can see the public beach just behind the mainstreet (not even 1 minute to... More

The Darna Village Hotel is perfectly situated for people who want to dive. A one minute walk brings you to the beach where the 'Japanese garden' is situated. The rooms are very nice. It's more an apartement rather than a room. When you step out of the door you step in to the sun. Around the pool area is a... More

The hotel is very clean and each room has a large bathroom. There is also a pool but with the sea literally across the road, we never saw the need to use it. We went during off-season so the beach opposite was completely empty so we had it all to ourselves. The best thing about the hotel is the hospitality... More

Probably the worst bed I have slept in my life. The hotel looks like as if they didn't finished its construction, nasty bathroom, non working wall plugs, small breakfast. The four lazy men in the reception don't make you feel very comfortable with their behaviour, slightly better tan sleeping in the car. The bedouin hotel just above is much better... More

The coral reefs are situated right in front of the hotel, reachable by only a two minute swim and they are amazing. Non divers can easily try discovery diving and gain a unique experience.The staff was very friendly and helpful and made our stay very pleasant. They even took pictures of us while diving free of charge and we were... More
