As a hotel I cannot fault it because of the luxury and service. When we arrived we were upgraded to a suite on the 6th floor and our three 'growing up' children shared a very comfortable room next door with a third bed added for our daughter. Food was absolutely fantastic but it was a very expensive 2 days for a family of five.
Great to have a snack at the balcony in the bar as this was in fact a very substantial meal with a selection of local and mediterranean cuisine at a fraction of the cost of eating at the main restaurants. Plus on the one night we had a very special view of the unexpected evening's entertainment of belly dancing. Felt like royalty!
Would definitely recommend this hotel but although we did not venture into Aqaba I would not recommend this town as a holiday resort and much prefer a lazy Red Sea beach holiday over the pond in Sharm where it is a fraction of the prize and a lot less flies. However, we were travelling and felt it a part of the country we should visit.
Made friends with DG Osama who offered to copy some tunes for us to take back. Our next stop was the Marriott at the Dead Sea resort and subsequently, I will avoid Marriotts at all costs after spending a night amidst their corporate attitude!
