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

We did three days of diving with Red Sea Diving Center. Great hotel, extremely welcoming stuff, and the diving is fantastic. Price/quality ratio is excellent. We have all really enjoyed our stay there. Omar is great - helpful, patient, and funny. We definitely recommend this hotel to everyone!

The Red Sea Dive Center in the hills to the south of Aqaba is a small family run business. The hotel is excellent, it is very quiet - no music at the pool or in the restaurant, which is something I really appreciated. The restaurant offers a variety of dishes, including delicious local food. I spent a week there over... More

I was surprised with the laid-back atmosphere when I stayed here. The room was clean and has everything you need. The owner was extremely helpful. The hotel was mostly quiet because people went out diving during the day which is also a good thing. The public beach is 500m away from the hotel and i would not recommend it to... More
