“Luxurious splurge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012 via mobile

I'm not used to staying in 5 starred hotels, so this was a special holiday for me. And I loved it, from the room's own steps down to the pool and beach to the inclusive breakfast buffet. Quiet gardens, clean beach.

I've tried several hotels in Aqaba and for sure Radisson is one of the best service, staff, food and everything is great this is the second time for me to spend my summer vacation in this hotel and they showed a great value. And I would like to special thank the girl at the reception bayan for her wonderful service and kindness.
Definitely I will head to this hotel next year and I recommend everyone to visit it

Food and drink way over priced, local beer 6 jod, evening meal 19 jod for buffet plus drinks on top so average evening meal was costing 60 jod per night, because you are not told you have to pay a service charge plus tax on top of this and that all adds up, buffet of very poor quality unless you like salads, no drinks or food to be taken into the hotel from outside as you are searched when going in. Cleanliness of room not that good, the shower had not been cleaned properly for ages, black mildew and orange staining on lower half of shower tiles and glass, furniture in room very poor, balcony not cleaned in ten days, but round the hotel that was kept spotless.

We went to Jordan for a week, a organised trip. The last 2 days we were staying in the radisson. If we compare the radisson with the other 4 hotels that we stayed in that week, radisson is surely the best one of all! The staff is very friendly, the rooms are really 5* and the food is super! The pools are fantastic, with the view. Even on our last day we could stay 5 hours longer in our room before we had to catch our flight home. Normally check out is at noon, we could stay without any problem untill 5. Thank you radisson for the perfect ending of our holiday!!

One of the best hotels to relax and to Swim, location is around 15 minutes by car from Aqaba city center, room is clean and big with perfect sea view, breakfast is amazing and have a lot of items, and last, staff are polite and so collobrative.

The only issue that i noticed with this hotel that the check in process is very slow because only one staff at reception in the Shift.

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.
