We stayed in the Double tree hotel for one week on an all inclusive base. We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is located centrally, in the center of Aqaba near all kinds of restaurants and bars. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The hotel has a small pool with two jacuzzi's. It's a nice spot to chill, but very hot because there is no wind (or vans..). Fortunately the hotel offers a shuttle service to the Berenice beach club. A nice place to relax, take a swim in the infinity pool or swim in the sea near beautiful fish. The coral isn't the most beautiful in the world, but there's stil enough to see.
The breakfast is excellent, just as the buffet in the evening. Tip: have dinner at the Kings Grill restaurant. Excellent surrounding (beautiful atmosphere) and great food. If you stay on an all in base you can also have lunch at Kings Grill.. Just great! Staying at an all in base is a good idea, since Jordan is not a cheap country. Especially alcohol is expensive (which can be expected because of the islam beliefs of the country).
If you want to take a tour around, make sure to ask for Omar Ali. Great guide, nice person and true value for money. Tours from travel agencies (in our case TUI/jetair/arke) are very expensive and not our taste. With Omar you can customize your day, so we combined a visit to Petra with Wadi Rum and had a great, but tiring day :)
Last but not least: The staff of the hotel is really doing all they can to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible. In our case, they did an excellent job.
So, If you look for a nice, comfortable hotel in Aqaba, centrally located, with a true effort for you as a guest: stay at the Doubletree by Hilton. Highly recommended!
