I liked this hotel, primarily because of the central location - you can walk to shops and restaurants in a few minutes which was great as we were only there for two nights.Not so good if you are there primarily for the diving etc as the public beaches in walking distance did not look very clean and were pretty packed, and the beaches with the best reefs are a taxi ride away - and taxis are not that cheap there. Room fine, nothing to write home about but clean. TV reception pretty bad and internet so expensive that we did not bother. Anyway, after a fruitless taxi ride to a beach (it was too windy to sit down, but apparently this is quite unusual), we got another taxi back and spent the rest of the day by the pool where it was sheltered. Pool area very nice, clean. Most staff very pleasant except a couple of the front desk guys were quite sniffy. Pleasantly surprised by the buffet, being an avid buffet hater, both breakfast and dinner very good, with fresh options in addition (e.g. freshly cooked eggs at breakfast and one dish each evening that was cooked to order). Wine expensive as it seems to be in other hotels in Jordan.
