Very clean and friendly with a good breakfast. Our only problem was that it worked out a bit expensive for us (2 adults and 2 children aged 13 and 10) as we had to have two double rooms rather than a room for four which usually works out cheaper. Don’t know if they don’t have them or just couldn’t do it for us.
It is a nice place to flake out around the pool if you wish but also has easy access to the beach for snorkelling. The closest beach (Public Beach No.4 – free) is about 500m straight down the hill. Cross the main road at the bottom and directly across the beach is a rope that leads 50m or so out to sea. Follow this and it takes you through a break in the coral. You get a good view of the coral as you go through and can swim up and down the drop off on the other side. You can swim out anywhere else as well but can’t get through the coral without swimming over it which isn’t good for you or the coral if it is too shallow. Lots of fish!
There are a lot of touristy places to eat in Aqaba but try the local street cafes instead. We had some great meals for less than 10JD for the four of us.
