The best thing about this hotel is Ronnie, you will soon know who I mean if you choose to stay here. He is usually found on reception always wearing his hat, while we were there he also cooked breakfast, organised our taxis and bus tickets, waited on at dinner time, all with a smile and time for a chat.
On arrival he told us the pool was closed and the restaurant would not be open until later in the week, we were given the option to stay at a different hotel. As compensation he offered us a family room next to the pool and seeing as the hotel doesn't have a bar (despite being mentioned in previous reviews) he would allow us to bring in cans of beer from the off licence in Aqaba.
Remember this is a budget hotel with very small basic rooms, but if you want somewhere to stay right on South Beach with plenty of sunbeds around the pool, lovely comfortable shaded seating areas and free wifi, then you will not go wrong booking here.
A taxi to Aqaba will cost you 5JD but coming back can be a lot of hassle to get this rate involving haggling with and walking away from taxi drivers. It is best to get Ronnie to sort a taxi driver and get his card so you can ring him when you want to return.
South Beach has great snorkeling or you just walk into the sea with the coral starting at just a couple of feet depth if you aren't confident enough for deep water. Unfortunately as stated in previous reviews it is not the cleanest of beaches and the local young lads do tend to stare, My wife did find it quite amusing as she pointed out she is old enough to be there grandmother.
Over all good value for money hotel, habib Ronnie if you read this.
