I stayed there for two nights in November and liked it very much. I'd recommend it anyone and would be happy to go back when time comes.
The staff including Baba and Hazim are very friendly and helpful and eager to organize various kinds of tours of your preference. I ended up walking the Wadi Dana trail that did not require a guide but would like to take one of the guided trails if I visit again by any chance (Ask Baba to show video footage of some of the trails. They are beautiful).
And three Philippina helpers are amazing cooks! The 20-dish buffet dinner was the best food I ever had while in Jordan. Rooms are basic and small but kept very clean so I had no problem with it. Shared bathrooms are also kept very clean and hot shower is available.
Incoming transportation can be a headache because there is no direct public transportation to the Dana village but baba is very quick to help if you contact him in advance (I took a bus from Aqaba to Tafila and the bus driver dropped me at the junction that leads to Dana village. The hotel staff -- I called them before leaving Aqaba -- waited there to pick me up). For outgoing transportation, you can just talk to the hotel staff and they will take care of it.
The whole Dana village is very small, serene town with only nine ( or fewer) households. And the view of Wadi Dana and surrounding mountains are just mind-blowing. I loved just sitting at the rooftop sofa and looking up the mountains, especially at night. Great atmosphere, great food and friendly staff. Highly recommendable.
