Darna village, is a great spot near Aqaba beach. Cheap place great for budget travellers, with a swimming pool and right in front of the beach. Staff is great, funny and will be glad to help you if you need anything. If you're a diver, there is also a dive center within the hotel. Just so you know, it's located... More

Great location, just across from the public beach at South Beach, where there is very nice snorkeling. Breakfast was included and was very adequate, and one night Maty, the friendly and helpful manager, provided a nice fresh fish, prawn and calamari dinner at a good price. Room was spacious and comfortable, including TV, a/c-heater (needed the heater during our stay... More

The hostel is great if you value more quiet than a city however, with it being more removed, your options for food and entertainment are greatly limited. They offer diving and snorkeling from their own diveshop but when we went it was particularly windy. All of the coral on the public beaches is DEAD. I HIGHLY recommend exploring other options...

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
