I honestly do not understand what people complain about. The hotel is in an excellent location and it is really spotless. I was looking for some dust, dirt, something but found nothing.
We arrived at 2.30pm and our room was almost ready. They brought in fresh bathrobes and refreshed the mini bar as soon as we took possession of the room. A/C is very silent and works perfectly well.
The staff is very friendly and they do their best to make you happy and make you feel at home. Food is very good, buffet breakfast is massive, you could spend the entire morning just eating there and then roll to the beach on a full stomach.
We made a phone call from the hotel and we weren't charged. You can use PCs and do print outs at the business center for free. You can ask for a late checkout (2pm) and it is for free. There is a free wi-fi in the room that you can use for as many days as you want.
The infinite pool is right on the beach. A lot of Clorox in the water but at least it was clean. 1 of the swimming pools was closed but that did not bother us, plenty of other places where to swim.
The evening show (live arabic music as well as bellydancing) was very nice and entertaining.
The beach is big and clean. I would definitely go back to the Radisson if in Aqaba.
