The hotel is very nice; rooms are big and very clean, service was great. We were happy to spend two days in this hotel after a very exhausting Jordan trip.
The only two things we could complain about are that the hotel is quite loud and far from Aqaba. If you go with children or a group of friends it should be ok but we were a couple and the hotel got a bit too loud for us. There is a Suttle bus that takes you to town every two hours.

It was a pleasure reading your positive review and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. We do apologize for any noise disturbance and in particular over weekends we have quite a number of families with children. Therefore we have allocated one of our swimming pools for adults only. We hope you will have an opportunity to stay with us again in the near future.

Stayed there last week, had an amazing experience. Staff excellent and very pleasant. Diving centre on site was great. Food amazing... Spa was a truly great experience. All amenities, swimming pools, beach were always clean, staff constantly around to assist - and take pictures when asked. Plenty to do in the evening, bar; entertainment - no need to leave the hotel at all. In short, cannot wait to go back, hopefully in May! Sue Fresco

My husband & I stayed here for 4 nights at the end of September. The service was excellent from friendly staff throughout the resort, so much so that it has prompted me to write my first Trip Advisor review. I was initially a bit concerned that there may be too many children but there was an 'adults only' pool & plenty of different bars/areas in the evening to suit those with/without children.

The resort itself is great however the staff is really unfriendly.
Ants on the rooms told them they didn't care much
Turn down service was not Done every day
Pools needs maintainence

Don't get me wrong the resort is really nice and has an amazing pool however the staff are the ones who ruined my stay. They don't smile or great you when they see you.

As for the restaurants no choices at all.

For the prices I paid I expected a warmer and friendlier experience

Many thanks for your comments and your compliments about our facilities are much appreciated. Kindly be informed that the tiling maintenance of the pools will take place early next year only, as we don’t wish to close the pools during the season. With concern we have taken note of your comments about unfriendly employees and in general we are very well known for our friendly multinational team. We wish to apologize for any bad service experience. We hope to welcome you back soon.

This is my third stay in this hotel, acctully each time I enjoy more than the time before, amazing pools with magnificent clean beach, rooms are great the hotel garden is something different. Kids pool is very safe area, food and ice cream are in a very high standard. I can easily rated A++.

Room Tip: Always ask for the family room, very Convienant for a family.
