Kepinski Aqaba is absolute a first class hotel with nice rooms viewing the sea. The staff was extremely friendly. But I must admit that the chefs can improve a bit. Our fish dishes at the beatuiful restaurant on the shore was dry. But the service so good that we will not complain. The room service Ceasar salat was not up... More

Pretty indelible hotel , amazing beach and food. Service could be improved during dinner, however its great otherwise. Very warm welcome indeed, and not to mention the dive and water sports club on site. Very close to the city center too. Definitely has high standards.
