We stayed here for 2 nights on arrival in Jordan and then 1 night at the end of our trip. We stayed in an Executive Suite on both occasions which were large and comfortably furnished. Both floor plans were different but each had a lounge and separate bedroom........

My wife, our son, and I spent 3 nights in the Al Qidra Hotel, which is conveniently located two doors away from Dive Aqaba, another fine institution that we patronized for diving and snorkeling. We had a triple room for JOD 36 per night (Jordanian dinars; that's about $50). The room was attractive and clean. Breakfast was included; while Western... More

The reason why this hotel has such good ratings is because the reception told me if I give a good review they'd give me free Internet access.. And here I am! Writing a review. So don't be fooled by the Amazing rating. It's am alright hotel.. You're getting what you paid for I guess

Do not ask the hotel to get you a taxi to the border. We asked the lady at the reception for a taxi to the border, she told me it would cost 15JD but she will try to get one at 10JD. The fact was the taxi driver will start bargain from 10JD and we finally flagged one with 7JD.... More

The room was clean and spacious (we were in a double twin), with a fridge and AC. Very conveniently located in Aqaba, and about a ten minute taxi from the border crossing. I would... More

Very close to all diving operators, restaurants etc. The staff were very helpful, giving us a complimentary upgrade to a different room as we arrived early. The room was very spacious, clean, beds and pillows comfy and the wifi is pretty good. Nice to have a fridge in the room, and... More

I am very grateful to the team at the reception. They were very friendly and able to deal with a complicated situation. I really want to thank them. In addition, the rooms are perfect! Comfortable and well furnished. The location is very good.
