The price is good, but the location is best if you have your own car. It's quite a ways from the center of Aqaba. I managed, but waiting for a taxi to get to town took a fairly long time. Getting back to the hotel from town is just fine. Service is ok here, but very relaxed. The best part was the snorkeling. As I was the only one just snorkeling (rather than diving), the diving instructor was kind enough to take me along with the divers to snorkel on my own. He set me up with someone to help me get going at the site just so I would know the best places to investigate...then I was happy to be on my own. The hotel even loaned me a wetsuit (even a 70-year-old, which I am, can look ok in a wetsuit!). The flippers and mask were included with a room special. So I had a glorious snorkeling adventure with great service. Restaurant at the hotel is limited, but good drinks. The pool is superb.
