The Rock Camp Bedouin camp in Petra was excellent. My husband and I were there in July 2013. If you are looking for a 5 star hotel, this is not your place. You go to Rock camp to enjoy the Bedouin culture. The desert at night is very cold, but you sleep in a nice wool tent to keep you... More

If you are at Petra and don't have time for the Wadi Rum Bedouin experience, this is a great choice. Setting is beautiful, comfort is acceptably so-so (but remember, you're in a Bedouin camp, not the Ritz Carlton!). The high point was the service and food, provided by Ismail and Mahmoud. The food was excellent, and they served the best... More

***5 Star for Quality Service & Experience - not for posh luxury*** Stayed here for one night in May, wish I had done 2 night. Absolutely amazing relaxing experience. I hate to call out other reviews, but I felt I had too. This place is NOT a posh luxurious hotel or luxurious outdoor experience nor does it claim to be.... More

My kids and I welcomed to the camp by its manager. We were the only 3 guests there at the time and were treated like royalties! In terms of facilities, they could improve the water pressure (and temperature) of the showers, but all in all it was a fantastic stay. Delicious breakfast, great tour around the canyons, superb! The camp... More

Breakfast was sliced tomato, cucumber, a dairy lea cheese triangle, yoghurt and Arabic bread. This was the same both days, the only difference on the second day was bits of material or hair in the yoghurt. The wind howled both nights, again not a problem except where the beds had been pushed together up against the fabric of the tent... More

There were six of us, really waiting for this experience - not for the convenience because it is hard to locate specially if you arrive late at night, and certainly not for the hygiene or comfort... If you are prepared to bear little cold water and can wait to have your hair washed in another place, if you bring along... More

We started our tour in Jordan to see Petra. Jordan itself was an eye opener as it's a very poor country and looks very 3rd world in all aspects. Arriving at the camp with 43 people in the dark was a mistake. The locals that worked there didn't take leadership and the organizing that was done by our tour leader... More

We stayed there two nights while we explored Petra and Little Petra. It was a bit further out from Petra than I expected but the setting was beautiful and the drive was only 15 minutes back to Petra town. We were the only people there so it was pretty quiet, except at night when the local Bedouin dogs started howling... More

After looking to different Options, I decided to book at The Rock Camp because of the amenities they offered. BIG MISTAKE. besides the Location, the rest was completely not true. No henna Tattoos, no kohl, no traditional Outfits, no buffet breakfast. they charged us 14 JOD (20 EUR) extra per person for the buffet dinner... not such a Thing. It... More
