Thank you for completing a Tripadvisor review and your views on the location and facilities.

The South Beach is not only a great location for all kind of watersport activities. When you search for amazing views over the 4 countries Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Israel, we can highly recommend our rooftop terrace, especial for sunsets.

We are glad that you used the opportunity for some dives and hope to welcome you next time here in Aqaba.

Regards.
Arab Divers Team

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.

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...

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.
