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!

I have been staying at this hotel every year since 2007. It was my favourite until I visited it in May 2012. Unfortunately, it is now surrounded by military baracks. It is no longer that nicely isolated hotel with nice beach away from the crowded city of Aqaba, hidden far on the south beach. Unfortunately, now the service has deteriorated... More

Came there with my family and stayed there for three nights. The service is terrible, the rooms are run down and not very clean. The shower was leaking, the electricity so and so, the furniture on the balcony broken and no towels upon arrival. We had to ask several times to get towels and in one of the rooms the... More

I did not have high expectations before I went to this hotel as I had read the reviews but tried to have an open mind.However, the whole hotel was rundown, shabby and not very clean. Beds were clean but linen very worn. Rooms dark, terrace door lock broken and did not shut properly. Main door lock not working properly. Holes... More

I stayed at Coral Bay for 3 night in early September, during an organized tour of Jordan. In general there is no particular reason to stay in Aqaba: the town hasn't much to offer, apart from small coral reefs and in my opinion spending there half a day is enough. Coral bay is around 20 km from Aqaba, on the... More
