Our stay at the Movenpick Aqaba was at the end of tour through Jordan, and we were after a couple of relaxing days before flying back home; it fully satisfied our expectations. Physically, the hotel is fairly elongated, including an overpass that leads over to the main pool and beach area, so you may end up doing a little bit of walking during the course of a day, but nothing too dramatic, and we can all do with a bit of exercise given all of the extra eating we end up doing while of holiday…
Our room was comfortable and well appointed, with a balcony and a view, and the sleep quality was excellent. The min-bar was stocked with free soft drinks, but the Wi-Fi was chargeable.
The choice and quality of eating options was excellent, including little snacks served in the pool areas. We found the various restaurants to be very good. Although the resort is located centrally within Aqaba, and there are externally option, we only really ventured out a couple of times to have a bit of a look around; we felt quite safe and secure, and we didn’t so anything silly.
The hotel enjoys a private beach, and this is well stocked with umbrellas and deckchairs, and there are a number of watersport options that can be easily booked and taken.
The clientele is fairly mixed, with the typically western tourists but also a quite large portion of local and regional tourists, so you will see large family parties, with all of the associated hoopla.
It was a very enjoyable stay, perfectly matching our desires and expectations, and we’d certainly return given another opportunity.
