it's really ON the beach: unbeatable
It has the best swimming pools I've seen, they have also a bar inside the water!!! so while you swim you can grab a beer ;-)
rooms are luxurius, with an amazing view of the sea, and a small balcony
we tried the lebanese restaurant: expensive and not good at all. Breakfast in the room was nice, but insanely expensive (25 euro for a couple of pancakes is not worth it)
so why the 3 stars? we've booked a double room and when arrived they wanted to give us a twins room and link the beds, like you do in hostels. after a big fight we get the double room, not with sarcastic jokes from the reception;
towel-robe in the room was dirty;
the water in the shower didn't go down: we call to fix it, they tried to do it, but then there still was 3 inches of water floading the shower cabinet
they are not big problems, but they are if the hotel is a 5 STAR hotel and you pay such prices!
Besides it has no charm at all, you could be here in aqaba or in africa or in usa, you won't notice the difference....
