I booked a Queen, non-smoking reg room and when I arrived (8pm) I was informed I got an upgrade plus a room with a balcony - woo! The room's balcony overlooked a bus parking lot (so inspiring) and the A/C would not work. I asked for another room but they said they would fix it... an hour latter no A/C. Finally, I said "change the dang room" and they said that they were full but could get me another balcony room (same view) with twin beds. I went in and it reeked of smoke... not at all acceptable. I went to call reception but the phone didn't work. Thus, I trudged down and told them I paid for a queen, non-smoking and I want that, snuff the balcony! Finally, at 11pm, I got into a room that had an A/C, a phone and smoke free (kinda... there was an ashtray in the room). Hey, what is to complain about? Well, the sheets had a stain and needed changing. After the fresh sheets I was check in 3 hours. For the price and the big 5 star rating this hotel has a serious need of better management. I cannot recommend this. PS... the "free Mini bar" consist of two Pepsi

Compared to other 5* hotels I have stayed at this probably comes in more at a 4* hotel. The hotel itself is very nice and in a good location, the customer service is also good.
I was disappointed in the size of the room and the fact that we had to walk half way round the floor to get to a lift.

This friendly hotel is situated in the center of the small town.
A nice quit private beach can be reach through the hotel premisses. Several pools gives you plenty oppertunities for leisure.
The food in the hotel is good and in the neighbourhood at walking distance local retaurants are available. Fish restaurant Floka can be recommended.
Free shuttle to the Moevenpick Talabay resort is recommended to visit an other environment and other beach/ marine life.
Excursion to Petra (3 hours drive ) and Waddi Rhum (2 hours drive) are recommended.

First room was so dirty in all aspects ( curtains, carpets,bathroom etc) that we had to complain and we were given another room. This room was bigger and slightly better but still not up to usual Movenpick standards (eg at Petra). The main reception, restaurants & pools were very good - much more the quality we expected.

Moevenpick Resort & Residences Aqaba got good location close to restaurants & all attractions in Aqaba, I advise choosing the Chalets which are close to pools & beach & are better than the rooms in the main building.

Room Tip: Choose the chalets close to pools & beach
