The best part in aqaba is the intercontinental because Aqaba city is a bit limited city so basically intercontinental offers you everything you need from A to Z. The food was good with so many variations also there's bunch of water activities with affordable prices.

This is a very nice hotel located in the resort town of Aqaba. Spacious rooms with modern amenities, beautiful pool. The staff is the crown jewel of the hotel, super friendly. Food by the pool area is OK, but the breakfast buffet is great.
