Family of four. With two teenage children. Everyone of us enjoy here. If you travel to Aqaba, you should have hotel with the beach. Which is nice in Kempinski. Complimentary minibar is good so you don't need buy water all the time. Only complaint come from lack of any kind recycling or any other ecological thing.
