The location is great and staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms are quite old fashioned but our one was spotless clean. Despite of this I don’t agree with the review on the last edition of the Lonely Planet (2015) because this hotel is no way a “boutique hotel”. It is just a friendly little town hotel and I was a...

I stayed at Captains for two nights in December which is off-season in Jordan. It's located in the middle of Aqaba. You don't come nearer to the city center. Right in front of the hotel are some bars and restaurants and the tourist information is only a few minutes away. My room was clean with a small shower and a... More

Nice hotel. Friendly staff, comfortable bedrooms, good restaurant. Well situated in the center with the big mosk within walking distance, an excellent fish restaurant close-by and an ATM across the street. Also a fairly descent shop in the beginning of the street with a large choice of alcohol.

We spent 2 nights at captains hotel in a triple room. we got a sea facing room which was excellent. there was a wide variety of food to choose at breakfast. the staff were considerate and attentive. the hotel is a bit old and shoddy though, and not very clean. so don't go looking in the cupboards

I came to Aqaba many times and this is the first time I like hotel too much, because of friendly staff, clean room and delicious food (breakfast). I so happy for this experience and encourage everyone to try this hotel.

That's the hotel that is perfectly defined by this word - cozy. It's not big and loud beehive, it's a really comfortable and well-designed boutique-hotel. It's clean, fancy, and I should mention a very good service also. The pool is not big, but I've never seen there too many people, and it's perfect both for small children (low area) and... More
