We really enjoyed our stay here; the hotel is right across the road from the beach & a good reef for snorkeling; the rooms are big & comfortable & there is a lovely pool with sea views. The restaurant serves good food at reasonable prices.

This is a great place to stay if you are a confident snorkeller (or even if you want guiding). Cross the road, swim out along the line of buoys and you are on the reef, as easy as that. The hotel was quiet when we were there and we often had the pool and loungers to ourselves. The food is... More

We stayed here right after Ramadan had started, and because of which it was low season and we were the only guests on the property. The staff was helpful, especially the manager. But fasting takes its toll and sometimes people become tired and have less patience, wouldn't blame it one them. Nevertheless, the resort was nice, you can ask for... More

We enjoyed our stay at Darna Village very much. The rooms were basic, but functional and always clean and tidy. The facilities were cosy and the pool a great place to cool off. The staff was always friendly and arranged great day trips for us, also on short notice. We took diving lessons with Darna Village and had a lot... More

The hotel is situated next to the south beach, with a beautiful view to it. The beach itself is rather dirty, but the snorkeling there is great. The rooms of the hotel are sparse but roomy and clean (except for the various colonies of ants). Toilet, shower, air conditioning and fridge work well. There is a pool in the hotel... More

WE found this place by accident and they had a nice pool, but what makes it is the snorkelling directly across from the hotel - magic sights under the sea with just a snorkel. Rooms are clean and they offers nice service, especially the lemon juice with mint was welcome.

When travelling through Jordan we had pre-booked out accommodation for everywhere except for the night that we had in Aqaba. Our driver Omar said that he knew of a great place across the road from the beach that he highly recommended. Staying at Darna Village was an absolute delight! The location was beautiful - across the road from the beach... More

Darna village is located right across the Red Sea south beach. In fact, right opposite the hotel, as soon as you cross the road, you can swim among the famed Gorgon coral dive site. We reached around 9 AM and the staff arranged for me to dive at the cedar pride wreck at 10 AM. The attached dive site is... More

Very nice little place literally a stones throw from the beach - the road (admittedly a big one) is all that separates you from the sand and sea. The pool here is also super nice and the staff are very accommodating. I arrived at 4pm, having only booked the hotel that morning, and they arranged to take me out diving... More

Darna Village is somewhere between a hotel and a backpackers - not a bad little getaway. Being the front of a complex of accommodation places, the view from the pool is great and the wind off the water is lovely. The rooms are basic but very clean and the air conditioner works well. The internet is only available in the... More
