Staff was friendly and scuba instructor was really professional and fair. Room was clean and relaxing. Spot on the roof was lovely to watch sunset over sea. Hotel is great to stay if you dont even scuba. Near beach was full of locals. Not good for sunbathing bikinis on. Tai 10 to 15 jods from aqaba center.

We would like to thank you for your feedback here on Tripadvisor regarding your stay with us.

One of Arab Divers key features is actually the relaxed, stress free atmosphere. Thank you for highlighting the issue about the beach, we are sure many future guests will appreciate this information. The South Beach is a public beach and especial on weekends frequented from local families. To respect the local culture here in Jordan we recommend sunbathing on our pools or we offer discount vouchers for the private Beach Club Berenice, where western swimming wear is appropriate.

We are glad you enjoyed your holiday and hope to welcome you again in the future.

Regards.

The hotel is about 10min drive to the city centre (6 or 7JD by taxi) and 10min walk to the beautiful beach of Red Sea. The room we stayed was very spacious and clean, lovely decorated in red and white colour. It is air-conditioned which is very important in Aqaba. The entire hotel is vey quaint and I love the blue and white tiles on the walls. The staff were very helpful. They helped us to arrange red sea submarine tour and transportation to Aqaba city centre.

We really appreciate your comments on Trip advisor and thank you for spending the time to complete them.

You are correct that Arab Divers is ideal for the relaxing holiday and there are a number of activities besides diving that can be arranged from our front desk. Thank you for sharing the nice photos, we love the one from Lucky, our Security Manager during his resting time.

We looking forwards to welcome your family soon here in Aqaba.

The place was nice and calm when I was there (pre-season). The crew was friendly and professional. Relaxing on the pool or the roof terrace after a day of diving was great. They work with a reliable taxi driver who took me to Wadi Rum the next day.

I stayed at Arab Divers for just a single night with my wife and 2 teenage sons. Their site is located some 10 minutes south of Aqaba City centre, which gets you away from the madness of the city but is still convenient for restaurants etc. Arab Divers do I offer meals, but the menu is pretty limited so I'd recommend a quick trip into town. The staff are all really friendly and helpful, always happy to chat and share advice. The bedrooms are pretty basic, but they're clean, comfortable and all you really need - you go there to dive, not luxuriate in 5-star splendour!
Overall, Arab Divers offers really good value for your money and we would certainly use them again.

Room Tip: Arab Divers have at least 2 adjoining rooms that can be used as a single, larger family 'suite...

Thank you for spending the time to complete your review on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately you stayed only a short time with us, but we are glad to hear that your family had some good dives here in Aqaba.

We appreciate your kind words and we are sure that future guests find the information about the two family suites very helpful.

Hopefully we have soon the opportunity to welcome you back here in Aqaba for relaxing family holidays with amazing dives.

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.
