we are planning a 1 week trip to the Middle East and were looking to visit either Oman or Jordan. Culturally they both offer what we are looking for - ancient sites, interesting places and beautiful scenery. We would look at combining our week stay with excursions to some of the above activities but also spend some time relaxing in a GOOD hotel.
Looking at the comments on TA, I get the impression that although beautiful, Jordan seems to be lacking in good hotels, customer service and quality and whilst a little less developed and less options, Oman seems to have more of this.
Am I judging this unfairly? If you had the option or have been to either, which would you recommend?
