I did not have high expectations before I went to this hotel as I had read the reviews but tried to have an open mind.However, the whole hotel was rundown, shabby and not very clean. Beds were clean but linen very worn. Rooms dark, terrace door lock broken and did not shut properly. Main door lock not working properly. Holes in ceiling, toilet flush loose, furniture old and scratched. Floors dirty through the hotel. Lack of towels in bathroom, had to use pool towel. No hairdryer, had to ask. Ran out of milk so no coffee after dinner. Food was very poor quality and on first night no choice, just three courses of oily tepid food. I am vegetarian and was given a plate of courgette and carrot as my main course. No desert. Breakfast = no cereal, juice was squash. On second morning, had to wait 20 minutes for coffee, milk, bread and juice.
Staff smiled a lot but were totally untrained. Had to explain how to make a cup of tea which then took 15 minutes to be made. Beach beds old, mattresses old and left out at night. Coral mostly dead and very few fish. Steps from jetty into sea were broken. Loud music playing all the time in all areas. Outdoor lights and perimeter fence broken, cups and plates left lying around. Rubbish piled up along with broken sunshades by fence. a number of people not staying at the hotel came in during the daytime, then the music was even louder! A dreadful,, dirty, rundown place which made Fawlty Towers look like a palace. A sad end to a wonderful trip to Jordan.
