We stayed at Coral Bay resort for four nights, partly because we didn't want to deal with the hassle of finding another place. After getting all unpacked in our room, we realized that 1. the electric sockets were not functioning, 2. no hot water 3. water was spitting out of the air conditioner. I went down to the office to... More

Been meaning to write this review for months, as my experiences at the hotel have been (positively) memorable and significantly different from those of several other reviewers. I stayed at Coral Bay for two weeks for each of the past two summers (2012 and 2013) and visited it briefly the summer before that. My priority was always the coral reef,... More

Paid 15 dinar for a day entrance, on top of this we also had to pay 1 dinar per towel. The staff manning the towel desk tried to pull the 'no change' scam, in order to get more money out of us. Assuring us they would get change and bring it to us in 'five minutes' headed down to the... More

Planning a day of diving in Aqaba, I emailed the Royal Diving Club in advance. Hamza, the diving manager, replied quickly and professionally and so we booked 2 dives. When we arrived by taxi from central Aqaba (there are also bus and shuttle options) the team was ready for us and we didn't spend too much time getting the equipment... More

We went there based on the advice of a hustler taxi driver who gets commissions from this resort. After paying 15JD(22$) each to access their beach and pools, we were extremely disappointed about what we saw, as we expected state of the art facilities and a sandy beach, but sadly we saw a very rocky beach and a small pool,...

We visited there in April 2011. Many people recommended the hotel facilities for us, so we went there for a day. It was nice but not exclusive.Good value of money, as i recall the entrance fee was reasonable. The hotel is far from the city center but there are shuttles that lift customer from the hotel.

I spent here 3 days with my family. The location is very nice, the reef is beautiful, the service fast and friendly, the rooms are clean. There's a very convenient regular shuttle bus to the city. We enjoyed it very much!
