“Great hosts, beautiful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We stayed here while we were visiting Petra. Atif and Jane went out of their way to make our stays both productive and comfortable. The entire group of staff at the Seven Wonders appears to be incredibly close-knit, leading to a kind of a family atmosphere.

The bathroom block is clean and spacious. Our tent was fitted out with a bed and nightstands, as well as a bulb and power outlet for when the generator is turned on (between 7pm to 12pm at the time we stayed there). The tent is almost unbearably hot in the daytime as there is no way to get a cross-breeze, but this isn't a problem if you spend the day at Petra, or enjoy the very excellent central courtyard and lounge.

The courtyard has circular floor-seating surrounding a fireplace. We found this was a great way to meet new people. In addition, free tea is constantly served, giving a real community atmosphere.

At night, the mountain lights up quite spectacularly, and when they turn the lights off, and the campfire up, it's a rather perfect way to watch the stars.

I recommend this place wholeheartedly - if you are visiting Petra, then it is much more than just a place to sleep - it's an experience.

Stayed here for two nights while doing Petra. The place is amazing! The bathrooms were very clean, and the rooms were like something out of a wonderland movie. They have a campfire at night, and after dinner, everyone sat around drinking tea and mingling; very friendly atmosphere. The dinner was more than enough, and the breakfast was very delicious. The staff was awesome; they went out of their way to help us with anything we needed.

This place is magic. Sammy and his friends are making the stay very enjoyable. Tea over the hill watching the sunset (if you can climb up that is, but they have an alternative for less flexible guests), singing by the fire, they even drove us back and forth to the Turkish baths at night. Wonderfull. The dinner was also very good. Only drawbacks: eggs in the morning are ordinary and some wild dogs woke us up at night. But hey, you're in the desert! It's an experience well worth it. It's easy to miss the sign, so be careful, because it's next to another bedouin camp, but Seven Wonders is the best. This one is in the back of the hill. The wrong one is in front.

Lovely setting. Food was excellent. An experience. The staff are very good and help a lot. Thanks for a great stay. The lighting at night is very nice and accommodation units good and functional. Be sure to spend one night in a camp when in Petra if you can.

We stayed here 1 night, maybe another one would have been nice, but there was no time. The place is amazing, the staff are even more amazing. They make you feel like it is YOUR home and you can do things as you feel comfortable. Although it was a small group during our stay, all the 3 staff there gave us lots of company and there was a good conversation going around the large fire and lot of Arabian tea, all snuggled in them lovely warm blankets.
The rooms were adequate, the shower/toilet block was clean.
I would stay here again. "Sami" is a great host and nothing was too much for him or his staff.
The food was lovely as well, and at night, it was so serene, no noise and them lights on the surrounding area looked just lovely.
Little Petra is not far from this camp, and is worth a look at as well if you have the time.

We stayed unfortunately for 1 night, 2 would have been better to appreciate the experience better, for the price we were amazed a brilliant and authentic Bedouin camp, staff were amazing so friendly and helpful who would do anything for you, our tent was beautiful, breakfast and evening meal superb, we would certainly stay here again and if you do you won't regret it, thank you for a wonderful experience that we will never forget.

We wanted to book this unusual little stay to explore the local area prior to seeing Petra and feel a little more like a local rather than staying in a plush hotel with air con etc. It exceeded our expectations and was so beautiful and peaceful to stay here. The lights in the rocks at night are really pretty and compared with the hostel/hotels i stayed in over Jordan, I had the best nights sleep here and the local homemade food was delightful :)

Really enjoyed the chai, shisha and dressing like a local to have some fun in the evening! Loved it and a very memorable experience!
