I'll be honest, when we arrived I wasn't sold on the place. We were taken to our room, which was of a good size and decent enough. When we asked for a dinner suggestion we were told about a place a 15 minute walk down the hill (even though they were suppose to have a restaurant).
The next morning we met Jane - and that made all the difference. Jane is the owner, and is the nicest lady you will ever meet. I asked her about dinner and she told me they use to have a buffet every night, but with tourism down so much due to Syrian's issues, and it being low season, they did not have dinner every night, but she would be happy to make dinner for us. We ended up eating here 3 nights and the food was amazing every night! The pick up and drop off's at Petra worked smoothly (If you have to wait a few minutes get some Movenpick ice cream - it's great!).
The hospitality was amazing - far beyond what is expected! I truly felt like I was staying with a friend more so than staying in a hotel. While the place is far away from Petra, we had no problems getting a Taxi for 3 JD, and the views from the terrace are amazing at sunset.
I would highly suggest staying here! (However, do not do laundry here! It's VERY expensive - no their fault, but water is at a premium in the desert).
