First of all I would like to mention that driving as a sole female traveller in Jordan is not recommended, however it is an adventure. The hotel is not located together with the other hotels in the 'hotel area' near the Dead Sea so if you're not driving, it is a difficult place to get to. If you're coming from Amman, the hotel is located BEFORE the security check point as the other hotels are located AFTER. I had arrived at night so I had missed the hotel sign.
When I arrived, the receptionist was very friendly and informative, and I had opted for a late checkout as I was only staying for one night before heading to Petra. It is 10 JD per hour after the official check out time.
The room was modern and clean. The view from the room faces the Dead Sea as many of the rooms do. They were having an arabian party downstairs in the restaurant below so the music was quite loud, however after the shutting the balcony doors, you can barely hear it. The music stopped after 1am.
I had a friend come see me the following morning and the receptionist (different person) refused her entry. Quite frankly I find it quite rude but it seems to be a common theme in Jordan to be refused entry unless you have a reservation for the spa or something else. After the commotion and paying to use the facilities, my friend was finally let in. The pool was nice and had plenty of sun deck chairs. The breakfast buffet was fine. The beach was a couple of mins drive by the free shuttle they have, otherwise you could walk. I would think it takes approximately 15 mins more or less. The beach was secluded as it was a private area and the facilities like toilet and shower were sufficient. Floating in the Dead Sea was absolutely amazing and they had a small area where you can apply the mud for a little skin therapy.
Overall a good experience but it is far to get too, even from the main road.
