Firstly: If you come to Feynan, you come for the experience, not the hotel amenities. Those who expect a five star-all inclusive-treat staff like your servants-resort (and comment accordingly here) should stay away. Those, however, who seek true hospitality, full immersion into Bedouin lifestyle, knowledgeable guidance through an archeological gem and stunning scenery, those people should come. The place is charming and despite the lack of electricity or meat dishes, you have everything you need. It might just require a tiny bit of an open mind. Above all, the service and hospitality make it a stay to remember. Thanks a lot to Ali, Ali, Amil, Suleiman, and their families for a great weekend that we had!

We stayed at Feynan Ecolodge for 3 nights in late February 2021, two families with four children aged 4-9. It’s a truly relaxing place that literally forces you to switch off. The food is nice and fresh, only local food including for breakfast. If you travel with children who are picky eaters you may want to bring some breakfast cereal or some other familiar foods, as well as some snacks since there is no food served outside mealtimes. We enjoyed the hikes in the area, a day out with the goat herders, the sunset hike (which we did twice because the kids absolutely loved it), and the star gazing. Mohammed was a fantastic guide to the local area as well as the night sky. We brought some kites which was also great fun and a nice way to use the large open space around the lodge. The staff were great, but not always easy to find. It’s not the kind of place where you can just order a cup of coffee whenever you want, you have to go with the flow and eat and drink whatever is served whenever it is served. Once you get into that mindset, it’s a really relaxing experience. We brought a thermos and filled it up with hot water at breakfast so we could use it to make tea or coffee during the day. The staff were very diligent about following Covid-19 precautions, wearing masks etc. We will definitely come back again, hopefully next time hiking down to Feynan from Dana. The drive from Feynan to Petra was spectacular, just make sure you drive slowly and during daylight.

The beautiful, simple, clean and natural ecolodge is a hidden Jordanian gem. The beautiful location away from noise and light pollution allows you to relax and star gaze with the knowledgeable Bedouins. The lodge serves fantastic vegetarian food, wonderful coffee and rooms are large and lit with candles each evening. There are 25 part time local Bedouins that work there and guide you on fantastic activities. After 5 nights and 6 days I felt like I was leaving my family. Suleiman, Ameen, Duty Manager Ali, and the young man Abdulraman, and the rest of the staff make you feel safe and welcome each minute. I highly suggest taking a day trip with a local goat Shepard. It’s truly amazing how they know the plants and animals of this area. I also did the 24 kilometer hike round trip to Dana Village and back and highly recommend it!

We stayed at the Feynan Eco Lodge in March, just as the country was preparing to go into quarantine for Covid19. The staff were friendly, helpful, and made sure that we have a lovely holiday even though they were all preparing for quarantine. We highly recommend a stay here and look forward to coming back very soon!

We enjoyed our stay here, primarily because of the lovely location, the delicious vegetarian food and the staff. Our deluxe room was very comfortable, with good beds and large bathroom. We also enjoyed the balcony, and the ecological extras like homemade soap and candles and water that doesn't come out of a plastic bottle. But, three nights are too much. But we were a bit disappointed with the activities, considering the costliness of the rooms. Yes, one can hike about the wadi Dana and see the sunset and have coffee with the Bedouins, but that doesn't seem to be quite enough for a stay longer than one night. We booked three nights, partly for the activities and partly just to relax (which we did). There were just not many options for things to do. And paying $25 extra for a 20 minute 4x4 transport from the reception center or $4 for a short visit for Bedouin coffee seems a bit pricey as an add-on. We understand the need to put money into the hands of the local community, but we're already paying quite a bit just to be there.    As we told the manager, one other enhancement would be to expand wifi service beyond the one cold and dark reception area, so at least one could do a bit of internet surfing or work while relaxing outside on the lovely deck.
