Good location, and a great outdoor pool area, but rooms are showing wear and look a little tired. Rated a 4 start hotel, Aqaba Gulf Hotel felt more like a 3 star, and though clean and comfortable was dated and overpriced compared to other newer options in the area. On the good side it is licenced and has happy hour... More

The hotel is close to many venues, including many dive shops. The Dinner buffet is good, however, the buffet staff prohibits you from consuming any beverages, including bottled water not purchased in the restaurant, forcing you either to purchase their medium water bottle at $4 (USD), or not drinking anything at dinner. Breakfast buffet was good, they served drinking water... More

We came with a group to the hotel and stayed there for a short time each day. The room is not particularly spacious, but it was relatively nice. The bed matress was good and the blankets were soft and comfortable. The dining area was clean and tidy, but the food was mediocre (also, you have to pay for your drinks... More

I can imagine that many years ago this was quite a nice place but that was too many years ago to count and evidently not a penny has been spent on it since. The daily lift mat was so stained you almost could not read the day of the week on it and the carpets in the bedroom were no... More

I stayed in this hotel for just one night awaiting medical repatriation the following day off a cruise ship in April 2013. The staff were very helpful and kind. Thank you. I could even see my cruise ship from the window and watched it sail away! The hotel seemed very quiet and I only saw three other guests. The hotel... More

We stayed two nights on HB basis, first of all the hotel's location is excellent near shops restaurants and beach and other heavyweight hotels, as for the staff they were nice enough taking into consideration the huge crowds that arrived at the hotel, but they seem a little confused about the arrangements for Berenice Beach Club which posted a huge...

Rooms here are small, bathrooms are tiny, everything is very dated. Bkfst & dinner buffets are okay, having to pay for anything to drink at dinner (even water) is totally irritating. Good location in town. Unfortunately had just stayed at fabulous hotel in Palestine & this place really suffered by comparison.

One is a bit disappointed when you book your hotel room on half board basis and then find that that includes ONLY the food! You pay over the odds for drinking water at mealtimes. It makes one's mouth go dry to think the price they charge for it is FOUR times what you can get bottled water for in town.... More

I stayed in the hotel for one night. Again, I arrived there at night. However, the hotel is in good location for walking around and shopping. We can walk about 10-15 minutes to buy many things, especially various kinds of nuts such as pistachio, almonds which is very popular here. Dates, chocolates and many desserts can be found here too.... More
