As you drive down the highway from Aqaba towards South Beach Darna is on the left within a small development of businesses. It is actually located across the street from some of the best snorkeling in South Beach. Madi was extremely helpful and set us up with snorkeling gear and told us where to go. I even gave him my...

The place really suits the vibes of Jordan - fun, quiet and laid back. We love the location right next to the beach and just hanging out at the pool. For the divers - The diving club offers beautiful diving locations at low prices. You shouldn't expect anything fancy though. It is a simple hotel, perfect for relaxation.

A relaxing place to stay for a few nights. There are a few things that can be improved: * no wifi in the room * pretty expensive restaurant with hardly any vegetarian meals.... * price of the room (37 JD) is slightly high. But the positive things are more important: * Fridge and airco in the room * Lounge seats...

This hotel is not worthy unless you have a car, because there is nothing around it. The boats for snorkelling goes from Aqaba city and all the restaurants are in Aqaba city and this hotel is in the South Beach, far from the center. The rooms are ok, clean, but nothing special. The pool is full of sand and chlorine,...

Location is good only if you like diving and staying at the hotel. It is a struggle getting a taxi to the centre of Aqaba. Most of them refuse to turn on the meter and will try to overcharge you. Same for the return to the hotel. Special thank you to Ricardo who introduced me into the world of diving....
