Once we arrived at the hotel, we directly had a very good feeling.
The staff was very helpfully and very polite. They could also offer us, after a long day of travelling, an amazing cookie!!! A cookie that we will never forget:-)
The variety of food in the Gusto restaurant is perfect, and it tastes great!!
Then you have the King's Grill, what was in our eyes a great culinary experience!
Also the staff in the restaurants were amazing, we felt very welcome all the time, and would love to thank them again for the great time they offered us during dinners.
Then you have the pool which was very crowded, therefor the beach club is ideal, it's an incredible beautiful place, very nice pools, great snorkeling opportunities and a good service...
We booked one day a glass bottom boat, to watch the corals, and hop out to snorkel sometimes. When the boat arrived we experienced that it was rammadan...One member staff wasn't friendly at all and scared us away by shouting and waiving a lot with his hands. So we complained at the main desk of the beach club which organises this trip, and directly the very kind lady paid us back the costs we had to pay for a taxi. She could also offer us free kits to snorkel... Therefor the service at the beach club was great too!
The location of the hotel was good, not far from the airport, and not far to the beach club (there is a shuttle bus to this beach club a few times a day), you could also easily have a good walk in the small town of Aqaba... Also the room was very clean and very quiet, also large...
Now we want to visit a lot more in the world, but going back someday is for sure!!!
So once more: Thank you Double Tree!!!
