I was in Jordan for a few weeks on business and visited Aqaba over one of the weekends.
Elegant first impression was ruined by the front desk - these guys need a refresher course on customer service. They need to more effectively manage how people queue up and actually be friendly to guests when they check-in and check-out.
Other than that, it was a great experience. The Club Lounge has delicious food and attentive wait staff; the pool area is beautifully designed and well maintained; and i totally enjoyed sitting out on my balcony where i could enjoy the view and listen to the music but get away from the kids and cigarette smoke.
