Great Welcome when you walk in and are greeted with Double Chocolate still warm cookie. We checked in at 10.30 when rooms were not available till 3pm but they had ours ready in 40minutes and it was exceptionally clean and well prepared. The bed was the best I have ever slept in high standard of bedding crisp white high thread count white sheets.
Lots of choice at breakfast and diner buffet with options for freshly prepared food. stir fries pizza ect. Selection of sweets outstanding both warm and chilled options. Breakfast staff very attentive filling coffee cups and freshly squeezed orange juice as often as you required. If you get the option of all inclusive go for it we stayed half board and the price of wine with your meal by glass we felt was just too high to be comfortable with so stuck to water. Due to the overall standard of the hotel I was surprised to see guests wearing shorts for the evening meal .Lots of cafes and shops in the area to go out in the evening for some local atmosphere. The pool is far too small and at weekend very busy but still a great place to chill at sunset. The hotel provides free shuttle to Bernice Club down the coast which charges 7JD Entrance per person however the facilities are excellent. The food and beverages here are very reasonable by Jordan Standards. Snorkling here is not the best,,, few fish and much of the coral is dead, better option to book a boat trip further down the coast.
The downside here is security check your bags every time you enter the hotel as all food and drink purchased outside the hotel is taken off you until you you check out. As Aqaba is a duty free zone you are unable to take advantages of a tipple and few savouries in you room which is a shame. Overall an excellent stay in a first class hotel.
