We had an amazing holiday at the Kempinski hotel Aqaba. We were travelling with my 7 year old son who has Celiac's Disease, and the hotel's food management director, and head chef, made a special effort to greet us and reassure us that they were ready to prepare any gluten free meal my son desired. They made him fresh gf... More

We have visited the Kempinski Hotel in Aqaba twice before, and had a great experience both times... HOWEVER, this time, the amount of necessary maintenance and followup on cleanliness was clearly lacking! The bathroom in our room: the rubbish bin hadn't been emptied and had a horrible smell; there were removed tabs (to keep tubes new) from previous tenants shampoo/body... More

But the beach is small compared to other hotels. For my accommodations, I paid for an upgraded "Panoramic View" room. However, I would not recommend doing this as it... More
