Location – 4* - 10km outside Aqaba (shuttle service), calm, on a private stretch of beach, great views
Room & Breakfast – 5* : comfortable room, good amenities, excellent breakfast
Service & Restaurant – 4* good but pricey Italian restaurant, large buffet-style restaurant, friendly service throughout.
Reception: often lack knowledge and experience (best if you can deal with a manager) and can give poor/ wrong information leading to problems.
Amenities – 5* nice bars (but pricey cocktails), great pool infrastructure and general layout, disco, entertainment.

A luxurious, friendly hotel with very helpful staff. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the food delicious, especially the buffet breakfast and dinner. The swimming pools are spectacular and there were plenty of sunbeds.

Room Tip: The sea view rooms are excellent.

at the time of the arrival at the hotel, the rooms werent ready although we had 4 rooms , we had to wait for so long, the reception was too full..the hotel very far from the city and no shuttle bus availble for all the guests of the hotel and management need to adjust timings for pick up and drop off ( we witnessed a huge fight between guests due to the small size of the bus) ..lunch is bad quality and quantity..only one restaurant to serve lunch.

bathroom doors dont lock, showers need to be fixed, water is everywhere...TV remotes Do Not work

we understand the hotel is a hot spot but at the end of the day its a MOEVENPICK although staff are trying thier best but please try and save the name ...Mr general manager if you plan to come for breakfast , God Help you

Room Tip: choose a room next to breakfast area to be able to have your breakfast, seems like its a first come...

Thank you for the feedback about your recent stay at our resort. We noticed that you were not entirely satisfied with the service you received and while this is of course regrettable, we appreciate you bringing it to our attention in order to further improve our standards. Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience. We had some very busy periods during the summer months and unfortunately most guests have their breakfast at the same time and the restaurant was crowed. We hope that you will give us another chance to restore our good reputation and we are looking forward welcoming you back.

We arrived early and were lucky get room upgrade. My hubby is a coeliac ( gluten free diet).
The chef Hamzehat was brill, made fresh pancakes for hubby in morning, took him about evening buffet so knew what he could have. He was brill and a lovely man.
The 30JD each per night per person was a bit expensive for us though it was a all inclusive meal, and very nice, we did eat here 2 out of 5 nights. It is a 5 star hotel.

The adult only pool was great and huge thanks to pool attendants who were corteous and helpful. We loved the lazy river and just strolling into the other pools.
We spent time at the beach but take shoes to go into the sea as very rocky, also only small area for swimmers, the rest is used for snorkellers and divers, u cant go into their part but they can go into ures, which was annoying as they had biggest area.

They have a good free bus into Aquabe please use, its a great town and the shop keepers were so friendle and welcoming. All staff hwee were helpful and friendy, Would definately return here.

Only fault we like to leave a generous tip, but no tip box, which was sad, as the gardeners, and background staff dont get see any tips.

Thank you very much for your kind review of our resort. It is a pleasure reading your positive feedback and we are happy that you have enjoyed your stay. For your information, we do not have a tip box and sometimes guests handover tips in an envelope to the executive office and that money will then be added to the service charge for distribution to all employees. We are looking forward welcoming you back in the near future.

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
