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

Not so much a hotel, as a group of men smoking cigarettes near some rooms.. We stayed four nights, and the rooms were never cleaned once.. When you aren't allowed to flush toilet paper, this is disgusting.. No real reception, no maps, no information, even the slightest question, or anything to do with their jobs was the biggest effort.. A... More

We made a booking with them through their website. They answered and confirmed our booking. The only problem was that when we arrived we discovered that the whole building was being rebuilt. It seemed it had been bombed. Obviously nobody apologized and we found ourselves at 9 pm in the middle of nowhere looking for accommodation. We found a place... More

Probably the best thing about the stay were the rooms which were really clean and comfy. Service could easily find improvements, also the staff could be less rude and neglecting. Restaurant prices are well aware of the remoteness of this place and food was prepared without any sign of love.
