“Fantastic hotel”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

This hotel was so good I decided to share my experience.

From the moment we arrived nithing has been less than perfect.
Warm welcome and fast check in, quick rooming process.
The room was absolutely fab- view of the pool and the sea, huge bathroom,... all spotlessly clean.
Breakfast was great- loads of variety, very nice fresh coffee. One of the best meals I've ever had was in the hotels Steak house. Fantastic selection of meat. I ordered Wagyu beef and it was divine.
Service was second to none- everybody went out of their way to make our stay pleasant.
We will go back without hesitation.

Room Tip: View from the top floor is fantastic

I stayed here for one night on a tour of Petra and Wadi Rum. This is a nice Westernized hotel that seems geared to business travelers. I'm not sure of how far it is from the main attractions. The hotel was clean and the staff was very polite and helpful. The room was a good size and had a large terrace. My only complaint is that there was no wifi in the rooms and I did not have a Ethernet port on my laptop to plug it in. There is wifi in the lobby which is where I went. I would recommend it for both vacation and business travelers although bring a computer with a Ethernet port.

Beautiful, luxurious, immaculate hotel with huge spacious rooms, large flat screen tvs and beautiful bathrooms with double sinks and separate shower and separate bath. All at an exceptional price! Room service continental breakfast that we ordered was excellent and reasonable value. Free shuttle to the beautiful Berenice beach resort (including free access to the beach) which has some amazing coral reef to snorkel around. The best part, however, was the staff. Every single member of staff we encountered were extremely friendly and helpful. A gentleman at reception in particular allowed us early check in (10 am instead of 3pm!) as one of us had severe food poisoning from wadi rum and simply wanted to lie down, and also late check out (4pm instead of 12pm!) the next day before heading to Amman... as the day before had been wasted on being ill in bed! He also upgraded our room! The staff were simply wonderful. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

This place was in a great location, good value for money and the cookie are as good as everyone says! The quality of the hotel was comparable to a 4-5 star hotel in Australia, very clean and good facilities. The pool was smallish but had a great view! There was one thing I remember, the hot water in the shower had something weird going on - it seemed to go from freezing to scalding every minute or so...little bit annoying!

Great staff and location. Perfect for business trips that involve most of the day out of hotel/room. Price average compared to other hotels, food average as well (breakfast). It has no beach of sea side view, but there is a pool and a beach at Tala Bay (so I heard).

In regards to your comment about the hotel not having its own beach access, it is worth noting that, although the hotel is not a beachfront hotel, it does have access to Berenice Beach Club located at the South Beach, 15 km away (15 minutes’ drive) and can be reached by complimentary shuttle bus from and to the hotel.

My first thought was they transported the hotel from back in the USA, clock radio included.

There is security x-ray for bags and a metal detector to walk through at the entrance. No issues with security as had been mentioned. Water bottles in luggage and at one point we walked in carrying a large water bottle.

Pool is quite small and was crowded. Room and bathroom were perfect. As it was over 100F we at dinner in the hotel which was quite good. Breakfast the next morning was also good.

We were in a non-smoking room however from time to time the smell of cigarette smoke was present in the room. We had a wireless router in the room – which enabled us to have great wifi.
