Arrived at night with a sick girlfriend, so we couldn't really look for other options. The hotel was almost empty but still they let us pay 45jd a night, which proved way to expensive since the hotel is completely run down. Dirty rooms with leakages. The beach is very dirty. The staff rude, their service bad and the food even... More

Spent one night with family in August. It was almost empty (Ramadan) and apparently waiting for a new management.. The location and facilities are good enough (for a three stars), food was inexistant or disasterous.. Anyway let's see how it does in a few months as it seems to be going thru a period of improvement...

Well, we bought postcards and stamps in Aqaba and asked the seller about the post office, but he told us to give postcards to the hotel staff. And we did it. Nobody ever received our postcards, a big number of them! We sent some from Amman and Jerusalem as well, and they are received.

We booked in here for 3 nights. We saw pictures on the web site and thought this would be a perfect way to finish our holiday in Jordan. Pools, restaurants, beach, view over the Red Sea and access to coral reefs. This hotel is seperated from the public beach by an all night car park with local youth from Aqaba... More

Bad service. A generator was above our room, couldn't sleep all night. When we mentioned it to the staff, they suddenly didn't understand english any more... It was by far the worst hotelstay we had in Jordan..
