I loved my time at Feynan. My boyfriend and I were here for a night in mid-September and were so impressed with the service, activities available, food, setting...basically everything. We went on two guided hikes (sunrise and plant) which were fun and informative. They were excellent ways to learn about the environmental side of Jordan, as well as the Bedouin... More

A really interesting place to stay that provides employment for several local Bedouin families who staff, run and supply the ecolodge with handmade products and Bedouin 'experiences' such as coffee-grinding and bread-making. August is horrendously hot for a visit and also the area is aswarm with flies so perhaps not the best time of year to visit, but we had... More

So, we know that scheduling a stay here in August meant that we would be hot the whole time. That part lived up to expectations, though we are unclear on why the lodge couldn't spring for a few more solar panels and allow for ceiling fans in the guest rooms; we certainly didn't expect AC in an ecolodge, but the...

Excellent location in the south of the Wadi Dana Nature Reserve. Basic, but very clean accomodation. Candle illumination (occasional use of torchlight) contributes to the authenticity of the experience Food is simple Jordanian cuisine, but prepared in an honest way and of very good quality (great local bread!!). Well guided nightly "star-gazing" on the rooftop We made a stunning hike... More

I stayed at the Eco Lodge 2 days ago for one night. The hotel is not up to expectations vs what is promised on the website. Very low quality price. Lazy and bored staff sleeping during the day on the common areas of the hotel or hanging out in the hotel rooms. It is too bad as it could be... More

If someone can get around the end of Ramadan, school holidays and the misconceived security threats centered around the Middle East region, and tell me why we were the only guests. This place is amazing and has to be shared, the whole environment is out of this world and everyone must go - especially any budding environmental, ecological, geological, archaeological... More

We walked from Dana village (approx 16km) down to the Feynan lodge and stayed for one night. BLUF: Overpriced for what it is. The staff were very friendly and amenable, the activities offered were basic but entertaining, the food was okay, all vegetarian and quite basic, the rooms were okay but do not have AC. I see no reason why... More

After a long day hiking through nearby Wadi Ghuweir with a group from Experience Jordan, we spent a welcome nights refuge from the blistering heat in this unique Eco- lodge.

We recently spent two nights at the Feynan Ecolodge and are so glad we did. It was our first experience at an Ecolodge, and our expectations were absolutely exceeded. We currently live in Amman, and drove the 2.5 hours down the Dead Sea highway to the Feynan reception center. There we were met by a local Bedouin for the final... More

First of all it is a unique place. The staff is very friendly and we had talked with them a lot about Bedouins and their life. The food was ok and fresh juices were yummy, especially the Hibiscus juice. But there were only 2 or 3 rooms at the same time (we stayed 2 nights) and that felt me like... More
