I'd chosen Marriott because of its good reputation. Good location with tight security.
For US$230 a night, it's among the most expensive resort hotel at Dead Sea. It's our last destination for our honeymoon in Jordan so I decided to pamper my wife by choosing a 5 stars hotel.
In general the facilities are good, with few decent restaurants and nice pools. However I was disappointed by the service provided by the hotel staff.
Upon arrival, there were no help to carry out baggage despite there was a bell boy there (perhaps they expect Asian won't give tips?). At check-in, we were told wifi internet is only available at JD 9 (US$13) per day, no public wifi available, which is simply too petty for a 5 stars hotel. Internet is dirt cheap nowadays and it certainly would be a plus point if the hotel 'generously' included it in the rate, not as extra.
Before check-out in the morning, we ran out of shampoo and shower gel (only one each provided, usually good hotel will provide two sets), and called the room service to bring us some, which never turns out at our door. It's a wonderful place, except slight disappointment for the value that we get.
