The hotel is very nice, staff is very friendly and the pool feels like an oasis after desert safaris! The rooms are very plain, but its all part of the experience!! Staff is extremeley friendly, and if you go during Ramadan, it is completely empty!

We were late at choosing a camping spot in the desert and so opted to stay at Beit Ali Lodge. Lucky us. We stayed in a tent, but without bugs and extreme heat. Our dinner was delicious and in 37 degree heat, the pool provide a wonderful respite. Sunset views from the rocky ledge above the hotel are wonderful and... More

Bait Ali is for people who want to be in the desert but not in the desert. It is set up for tour groups and large parties. The rooms are tasteful and the whole resort is well designed (beware rooms are smoking so I could smell stale smoke) but it isn't for those who want the intimate peaceful desert experience.... More

Bait Ali was highly recommended by our Jordanian friends...and perhaps that is where the confusion lies! What is best for a Jordanian and what is best for an Australian is often very different! So the positives? It is very clean, the bathrooms in the deluxe tents (which aren't tents but just have a tent roof!) are great with a fantastic... More

My husband is very picky about where he stays so staying in a desert camp was not going to happen for us. We then opted for the upmarket Bait Ali Eco Camp for two nights. We stayed in the VIP chalet and it was more than adequate for the three of us. The views from the rock formation behind the... More

We spent one night in one of the "luxury chalet", which was lovely and clean. The bathroom was perfectly OK, but it was simply impossible to shower as the water was either boiling or freezing...Otherwise, we liked the place very much and the food was delicious. Loved the tour of the desert in a 4x4 too: an amazing place...

We stayed 1 night in a chalet at the Bait Ali Camp. A very nice place to spend the night, teh people are very friendly and the restaurant is great. We didn't like to sleep in a tent in the desert and this turned out to be a perfect place. It was very quit when we were there, but all... More

We stayed there for a week in the cabins which were luxury compared to staying in a tent! They were clean and had hot water and electricity! The food was brilliant. If you are staying a while, they will not expect you to eat the buffet and they made us 'special meals' which were the most delicious meals I had... More

My family stayed in good hotels in Jordan and this did impress, for friendly welcome, good accomodation and food. Bait Ali's eco credentials go deeper than a "green-wash" with solar water heating that will likely take a good while to pay back. Would return.
