Nice hotel with helpful staff, excellent views, fantastic food specially when having breakfast or dinner at the terrace. But In a country like Jordan with high percentage of Jordanian the clienteles , the bath room should have a bidet or at least toilet seat bidet, plus the bathrobes are too small for adults.

Room Tip: The rooms I had got nice sea view, but I think view could be much butter if I was in the second floo...

Cannot really mention any cons. The location in Tala bay is good, the beach is fantastic, i just didn't like the interior decorations of the room. Food in the main restaurant is good. Breakfast is very rich and tasty. Free internet and soft drinks from the minibar.

We stayed three nights at this hotel. Its located 50m from the sandy beach, blue sea. Really nice view. Staff is fantastic. Great service. Nice rooms. Clean facilities. Free shuttle bus service to Aqaba city.

All pools sites have sea views. The pool areas are nice and spacious though when the wind sets in it is difficult to find sunny wind free spots. A warmer outdoor pool would have been nice.

My partner signed up for three diving sessions on site. Also here the staff were professional, friendly and funny.

I would definitely stay at this hotel again but in the winter season if my main purpose were sunbathing.

we stayed one night in this fabulous resort to celebrate the new year . the room was perfect with good view , good value for money and the reception staff were helpful with special regards to Bayan and Yazan , for the party it was the best ever attended ,the buffet was rich in different kinds of food that was perfectly prepared . Truly it was a night to remember. I do recommend this resort whose staff are doing their best to make your vecation even better than your best dreams.

Stayed in this hotel 7 nights. It does not look like 5 star hotel. The building and the service are of 4 star.
Not all the staff speak English. If you want or need something it will be very difficult for you to explain it for the hotel staff. You will be probably misunderstood. It is not good for 5 star hotel.
The furniture in the rooms look very shabby.
Wi-fi works very badly, the signal is very poor on all parts of the hotel.
The hotel has A VERY interesting rule. You cannot bring to the hotel any drinks or food from outside. Even a bottle of water! All your bags will be carefully checked at every coming in into the hotel. I haven't seen such strange rules in any country of the world! I should drink & eat food & beverages ONLY bought in the hotel territory!
The hotel is situated 15 km from Aqaba. Shuttle bus goes from hotel to Aqaba 4 times during the day. Staff in the reception could not definately explain me where the shuttle bus takes the passengers in the city on its way back to hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are different, do not take it at once. First see the room & only then lodge it.

My family and I stayed here for only one night and were happy to move on. It took 20 minutes to check in by an extremely overtaxed clerk who was also having to answer the reception's telephone - I was amusing myself looking at the 5 stars behind the reception desk wondering who issued this rating, We were then given the wrong directions to our room with no assistance offered to show us to our rooms. The electronic key then wouldn't open our door- after 2 trips back to reception they finally dispatched someone to our room to sort things out.

Only a buffet restaurant or "Asian" were the options for dinner which surprised and Aqaba is 10 minutes drive away. Breakfast was enjoyable but we were happy to leave. Check out was another debacle with a 15 minute procedure -again with one clerk not acceptable in a supposed 5 star resort. I'll be looking at other options in future.
