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.…
This was our first night on a whistle stop tour of Jordan and a fabulous introduction to amazing vistas and welcoming hosts . Our room was basic but very clean and beautiful and the bed was extremely comfortable, although I agree with some previous comments that the shower was a bit hit and miss, but then this is a true Ecolodge and not a spa resort ! Our hosts were knowledgeable, enthusiastic and very , very welcoming. The food was delicious and plentiful and the activities fun and interesting. We hope to go again and stay longer .
We had a really lovely time here. It is the best of both, you get a unique bedouin experience but with a lot of the luxuries of a hotel. The staff in particular are incredibly kind and helpful as well as knowledgeable.
My husband and I went to the lodge with another family to enjoy nature and relax. We were enchanted by the scenery, staff and good. We enjoyed the cooking class, hikes and stargazing. I highly recommend a visit
