“Good and not more than good”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

an excellent location, in the heart of Aqaba
they said 4 stars hotel, I think it is not
clean and good owner
the food quality is not good, althaugh the hotel has a big fancy and well known resturant; the food quality is bad.
it is good for business and not for a family stay
pool is very small
internet connectivity is bad

The first thing that attracts is the shape of the hotel itself,as it looks like a big ship, that is very likely for a city located on the seaside…as you are coming to enjoy the sea, so its nice to stay in a BIG SHIP :)…the location of the hotel is also amazingly practical, as everything u might need, u can find right next to you(pharmacy,souvenir shops,supermarkets ...etc )…the atmosphere inside the hotel is very loving and caring, it feels like everyone belong to one big family …the hotel is decorated appropriate to its name ,everywhere you can see that cute little stuff of the sea life :)…and after the day full of different adventures and activities its so pleasant to enter the room that feels like home,so clean and tidy…great housekeeping…the breakfast buffet has good variety of traditional and international choices that would charge full of powers to enjoy the day…also its so handy to have a restaurant that is a part of the hotel on the ground floor, and the camping in wadi rum that carries same name and all the comfort while it is made in a real Bedouin style …and the creators of all that is an amazing family who made sure that their visitor will find peace, rest, privacy, relaxation in a best way of Jordanian hospitality …they are always there for u…I would advice to stay in Captains hotel ,same as I do myself each time I come to Aqaba

This hotel is a good opportunity to be in the center of Aqaba. Nice and clean rooms. Towels changed everyday. Toilet courtesy items. Breakfast very delicious and various. Accurate and efficient staff. The restaurant in the same building is a must in Aqaba.
A special thanks to Adli Sammar at the front desk.

Had a very nice corner room with a view towards the minaret. Every morning I listened to the call to prayers at dawn. Magical.

The room was nice, medium standard, but much better than many hotels I've been to in richer countries... The staff is very friendly and polite, and we felt very welcome all the time. The breakfast was included and it was adequate, not excellent, but they make omelets fresh and you can choose your filling, so that was enough for me.

The restaurant "Captains Restaurant" which is located at the entrance is very good.

The Caprain is very nice place with good location. It is located in the city, but it`s also near the beach. Other restaurants and shops within walking distance, office of all diving centers are located next to this hotel. It has very good sea food restaurant on the ground floor. Hotel decor is very nice and our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was included and was very good. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and helpful, so I will come back to Captains Hotel and Restaurant to spend anoter good time there.
Also I visited Wadi Rum Desert Camp, it’s a very beautiful,quiet, romantic comfortable place with also great service, delicious food and beautiful music.

I stayed in this hotel in August 2013 , the staff were very friendly and helpful. I did have a struggle to get a nice room, three rooms later I was sort of happy. The back of the hotel on the lower floors looks out on a warehouse / half occupied concrete block. The top floor just about has a sea view if you stand on a chair! However it's in a central position, the breakfasts are huge, swimming pool lovely and empty in the evenings. They do a buffet every evening and are very helpful if you need to book excursions.

Room Tip: Ask for a double on the top floor looking towards the Red Sea.
