Clean, efficient, value for money, super friendly, varied dive sites - and safe. I have dived in many places with differing outfits and this is up there amongst the best. Recommended to me on the basis that my friend trusted them to teach his kids to dive, literally with their safety, I did the same; it did not disappoint. We now dive as a family of mixed ability and endurance and this place caters for all our needs. Abdullah and Omar are excellent instructors (with perfect English) and superb and knowledgable guides. Hamza and Zaid are professional, patient and charming too. The variety of dive sites on offer is wide and there is enough for all levels. The lodge itself aimed at the dive market and doesn’t come with all the frills of the 5* fare in Aqaba but is perfect for those who want to dive hard and then chill by a pool at the end of the day. Breakfast and snacks are provided but you need to be able to get into Aqaba for your evening meal. However, this is easy enough to do and there are no shortage of restaurants to cater for every budget and taste within a 15 min radius. In sum, welcoming and well appointed where it counts, this is lodge gem. We find ourselves returning time and again. …
A great place to learn and practice diving. Safety is the first concern. It is small and cozy managed by a generous owner, and the staff are very nice and hospitable. The rooms are very clean and minimal and the pool is nice. You can prepare your food or make arrangements with the center. This is not for hipsters looking for busy beaches and luxurious lobbies. This is where you make true friends. As a hijabi i received special pampering from the diving instructors (ya khalti) carrying my equipment and helping me through. It was just as enjoyable to me as the American deep dive student who became my friend. The center provides gear and transport to diving locations and arrangements can be made for snorkeling trips.
Nestled in the desert hill overlooking the sea, this hotel is very pleasant. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. The hotel is relaxing and the staff is super friendly. In the evening, no need to go to town, the chef offers good meals. But you will love the hotel even more if you are a diver. The equipment is good and the dives are beautiful, original and some are accessible to beginners. It is better to rent a car to get to the hotel as it is not in the city center.
We have been 4 nights, 3 days diving with Red Sea Dive Center and I fully recommended. Basheer was our dive guide - just class. Very professional so we have fun and feel safe all the time. And Omar it's just priceless! He help us more beyond diving and accommodation, he organise for us and trip to Petra and Wadirum and provide us support about anything In Jordan so our stay was amazing! I'll be back with "Blake Sea Adventure" and I recommended 100%
The hotel is very clean, simple but clean. Probably is the best place for divers in the region. The owner and all of the staff are very nice and friendly. They are ready to help you in every situation. Diving was perfect. The dive guide was super. Highly recommend. If you are not diver you can enjoy the relaxing atmosphere in the place.
