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.

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.

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..
