If you here just for diving, than it's good place to stay :-) It is quiet, many rooms, good breakfast, they can help you to organise your trips and they have diver instructors aswell. But it's far away from city, shops and it can be dificult to get there, etc.

Many thanks for completing your Trip Advisor Review. We are glad to hear that you had a relaxed time and that you enjoyed the trips.

You are right to mention that the South Beach is not a commercialized area (one of it great advantages) - with Aqaba close by and our front desk can arrange a taxi anytime.

We looking forwards to welcome you back on your next stay in Aqaba.

The hotel is located right near the diving area of the beach so not far to travel each day for diving. It's a great location if you plan to dive or snorkel, but it isn't close to the center of town (although I wouldn't say that is a bad thing). The staff are really friendly and helpful and can organise taxi's and trips for you if you want to go into the town or somewhere else.
The rooms were also a lot better than expected, were very clean with comfy bed and great value compared to other places we stayed.
The food is great and so was the diving, I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to dive in Jordan.

Thank you for completing the Tripadvisor review, your comments are highly appreciated. Few years ago, we made the decision to move our dive center from the City to the South Beach close to the amazing coral reefs.

Your praise for our facilities and location reinforces the correctness of our decision and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay and the diving here. We agree with you that it is not always a bad thing to be away from the city and our priority as dive center is of course the surrounding natural environment.

The 12 km to Aqaba are a 20 minutes ride and taxis are anytime available on request. We gladly shared your compliments with our team and hope we have soon the opportunity to welcome you back here on the South Beach.

Regards.
Arab Divers Team

We (2) were staying in the hotel for four nights. It's about 10-12 kms out of Aqaba, but that does´nt mind. We had a nice and clean room. Very friendly staff. Breakfest could be a little bit more.
Although we are no divers, we chose this place for the 2nd time (First time was in 2010; Here better than Darna Village Beach!

The divers never disturb, but the compressor of the filling station (beneath the pool) is sometimes loud! Beside that, we could relax good.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny

Thank you very much for completing your Tripadvisor review. Especial returning guests are a very important part of the dive center and creating the familiar atmosphere here.

We are thankful that you choose as non-diver our location and support reviews "not only for divers" against "only for divers". International Arab Divers offers for everyone a relaxing time away from the city, close to the famous dive and snorkeling sites for all water sport enthusiasts.

It was a pleasure to welcome you again and hopefully we do not have to wait another four years until your next visit in your second home.

Regards.

Everything was so great except that the reception working hours limited. I think reception must be open 7/24. However, this place is a great choice for diving activities. The staff was so kind and helpful. This is not a 5 star rated complex but it is a perfect location for diving.

We appreciate the time you have taken to express your satisfaction here on Tripadvisor. It is a pleasure to know that you have had a great time during your stay.

Usually is our reception 24/7 available, but on your arrival date the night shift staff had a holiday and unfortunately you did not inform us about your early check-in at 5 o'clock morning. We heard from you that you were provided with breakfast and we want to thank you for the kind compliments to our staff.

We are glad that you enjoyed also our amazing diving and snorkeling sites close by and we looking forwards to welcome you on your next holiday in Aqaba.

Regards.

I was staying in the hotel for three days. Nice and clean rooms. Friendly staff.
It's a bit out of Aqaba so if you want to go to the city for dinner you'll need a cab.
Scuba diving was great. The dive instructors are relaxed, friendly and experienced.

Thank you for completing a Trip Advisor review and your views on the diving, rooms and staff.

No doubt, we are fortunate to have some of the best coral and marine life immediately on the beach what makes our place a paradise for divers and snorkelers. The only disadvantage is that we are 12 km outside from Aqaba City Center, but taxis are easy available and not expensive.

We will share your compliments with our instructors and looking forwards to welcome you back for diving in the amazing Gulf of Aqaba.

International Arab Divers Vellage is not 5 stars hotel, but I'm feels like five star person staying there. It's not the luxury of the place......rather it is quiet, romantic deck where you can watch sunset and sunrise. I love the little benches setting outside by the trees like a courtyards. A world of it own!!! Very simple country like and warmth with fire pit in the evenings where you can sit watching the fire and drink tea.....my regrets is no Marshmallow to roast lol. I will definitely return to International Arab Divers Village again. Internet not so great but who care? I'm there to relax not to sit chat or doing business. And price is reasonable. I loved there and will treasures my experienced there.
