The staff was very friendly, the hotel lobby welcoming and the room was very comfortable and quiet. I would stay here again without a doubt if I had the chance. The only con was the room rate - kind of high , though still pretty good considering what other hotels were asking.

We stayed here as part of a tourist group. As a group of five travelling we were given interconnecting rooms which was very helpful, and the staff were very accommodating to the mixed languages spoken by the group. As someone who struggles in the heat, the airconditioning was incredible, we were never suffering from the heat in the room, but...

We (4 ppl) stayed in this hotel 1st week of September. Driving from Wadi Rum, we reserved this hotel for 1 night to enjoy the pool and the Red Sea. There was an issue with the reservation (2 singles instead of 2 doubles). The receptionist wanted to charge more for the difference (which is understandable), however, the rate on agoda's...

We were left in a room with no air-conditioning in the heat of summer. We were repeatedly told it was not possible to move room, as the hotel was full, and that the air-conditioning would be fixed shortly. After repeated attempts, it wasn't fixed, and we were left unable to sleep in the intolerable heat. We appreciate that sometimes mechanical...

Whenever we go to AQaba we must go here. Employees used to dress like Popeyes sailors - miss it but I expect they don't! Great sea food, reasonable prices. Fisherman a platter includes sea food soup & salads & sea bream with chips! Even dessert when available. Finished with mint tea WOW

The hotel is located in the center of Aqaba, close to an area with lots of restaurants. The hotel has a small but nice pool area. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was ok, with a big plus for the chef that made omelets. We where upgraded to a suite with a large terace. The furniture on the...

There were hardly any other people staying here when we visited, so the hotel staff were super friendly and ready to help us at every turn. I had an adapter, but Jordan apparently has about 5 different possible electrical outlets, and my adapter did not fit the outlets at this place. So, the front desk charged our phones for us!...

A bit slow service but good location don't forget to get triple plug adapter for your iPhone good breakfast small pool,everything is close by,no activity to do no gym, good air conditioning, affordable but if you can spend little more to get something by the beach would be better.
