I wish all mid-range hotels would offer the value and quality of stay that this place does! Very clean, functional (both a fan and aircon in the room), with personal touch, decent food, really nice and helpfull staff. In addition, there is a small clean pool with a few sunbeds that is great option for relaxing at the hotel an afternoon or so. If you're not diving - the beach is about 15 min walk (which I believe is perfectly OK), but it is the public beach, i.e. not the cleanest and not the most tourist-women friendly, however, it does host the snorkeling sights (you can rent snorkeling equipment at the hotel). Just 3km south (cab should be cheap if you won't rent a car), you'll find the private beaches of the resorts where you can buy a 1-day pass (Moevenpick 21 JOD and Radisson 30 JOD). We were very happy with our day at Moevenpick and thought it was a great value to pay just for the fun stuff of the resort yet staying at a nice place much cheaper close by. Furthermore, I believe that the location of the hotel is better than the crowded center of Aqaba. All in all, if you're not looking for a fancy resort, just book this. :)
