I only did a dive and did not stay at the hotel, so I can't speak to that aspect of the business. As for the diving, they were roughly on time and the guide was good. The price per dive was great, JD 25. The downside was that the equipment all looked to have seen better days. Also, they took... More

If you end up in this hotel I hope you want to dive (otherwise, clearly do not come here) - but the diving is not that great - material is really old, tanks were all leaking, etc. - I do not have other points of comparison in Jordan but compared to my diving in Sharm el Sheikh, the dive was...

I only stayed here for one day. The room was plain, but I was only using it to sleep so that was fine. The bed I think was small and maybe not comfy, but I was so exhausted from my adventures that I could've slept on the floor and been fine. I recall the A/C not working great so I... More

The rooms are very simple. Even if you stay many days, there will be no room cleaning. There is not even shampoo provided. The food is very basic and pretty expensive. The hotel is far away from the centre (which is normal if you want to dive), but it doesn't offer many activities. The swimming pool is terribly cold. They... More

We did not stay with Red Sea Dive Center, but stayed in the city and dived with Red Sea. I chose the dive shop based on their TA ratings and was not disappointed. A professionally run dive shop with an excellent crew we had a great time diving with them for three days. Omar was wonderful and he guided my... More

We chose this option to have everything in the same location: diving center, swimming pool, nearby the beach, restaurant, correct accomodation at very competitive rates. Moreover we very found very nice people in a very relaxing atmosphere. The staff was very helpful and hospitable. The diving baptism for the two young girls (8 and 10 years old) in the tank... More

The staff were very professional and accommodating. The substantial age of the equipment is the only reason wet could not rate this as five stars. The dive locations (Cedar Pride shipwreck and Japanese Garden) were very worth going, especially the wreck. Other than the old equipment (which still worked fine), everything about diving with this establishment was A-1!

Got stuck in Aqaba before a ship transit and found this little hide-away. What a pearl! Had a great dive and what a bunch of great staff. Highly recommended if you ever find yourself in this part of the world

I don't think this place has any pretension to be a hotel. It is a very comfortable and peaceful place The place is very close to the best diving points in Aqaba. You just need a van drive of 2km and that's it. An excellent shore dive. The dive masters are calm and polite, however, if you want to rent... More
