“The best of Jordanian hospitality!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

This hotel represents the best of Jordanian hospitality. I've led many tours to Jordan which have included stops at this lovely hotel. The rooms are always spacious & very clean, the food is unbelievable and the service is outstanding. Nothing beats a beautiful & delicious dinner outside on the patio under the stars! Can't recommend it enough!!

This hotel met all my hopes. It was very clean, on the Red Sea, great staff both in the hotel and on the beach area, good sized rooms and good food. It also offers you the use of its sister hotel at Taba Bay. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for either business or pleasure.

Nice modern hotel, with large clean rooms, complimentary mini bar in the room which gets restocked each day.
The garden/pool areas were immaculate, but the winter pool which is supposed to be heated was very cold! (visited end of March), the weather was 30c so maybe at this point they no longer heat it - I prefer the beach anyway so it didn't bother me.
I was leaving at 3pm and reception kindly let me keep my room until 2pm free of charge which I appreciated, so its worth asking if this would benefit you.
If I had to give a negative comment it would be that the breakfast restaurant didn't seem large enough for the hotel, I saw some people struggling to find a table, but if you're an early riser this shouldn't be an issue.
Overall really liked this hotel and would recommend it for a stay in Aqaba.

The rooms were clean, modern and very nice. The multiple pools perfect and right next to these were it's own beach. The breakfast was the best I've ever had and you must try their ice cream, its fantastic! If you want to find somewhere to watch the Premier League and have a pint then 5 minutes walk away is an English pub, when we wanted to watch the West Ham game it was exactly what we wanted, and next to that is a McDonalds if you'd want it. Overall I'd say that it will be well worth your money to stay here.

Really happly with room, facilities & breakfast was excellent, great young chef on duty who had worked in Zurich for a spell, very cold he said. .The beach was well kept, BUT, my wife said for the first time in her life she had to swim through trash. Plastic bottles, cigarette butts, tea bags etc. In the room the usual excellent Trinitae Dead Sea toiletries (not available for purchase in the hotel shops?), & supposed to be free soft drinks, chips in the room. Nothing available, nor tea, when we checked in & the next day we collared the room guy who promptly provided water etc.Said something about his supervisor & we made it clear in Arabic we were not happy. Having worked in the Middle East for 15years training all Nationalities I have my suspicions of what might be going on.

I got upgraded to a suite upon checking in. The rooms are very comfortable. The buffets were the best that I had in Jordan. The hotel has great views of Aqaba and the Red Sea. One of the sports channels has a replay of an NHL hockey game at 6pm which I thought was really neat.

We made a mistake by staying at Moevenpick. The hotel was tired. Service was average. The staff understood very little English. Like its sister hotel at Petra, there was no turn down service. Bath robes were missing in the room, clock was not working etc. When we checked out the Kempinski opposite to Moevenpick, the hotel was of higher standard. It was a beautiful property. Lunch over looking the Red Sea was heavenly. Staff was exceptionally polite and well trained. They all spoke English and helpful. The spa was so beautiful and had excellent therapists. We could not even book an appointment with Moevenpick despite that we were their in-house guests. Fortunately their Red Sea Grill served very good local cuisine.
