What an incredible property. We stayed in the least expensive room so the room itself was very nice but nothing exciting. However, the pools, gym and facilities were all terrific.
The service was top notch and everything was very clean. I read a few reviews about problems getting into the Dead Sea. It was easy and I'm not certain what others were complaining about.
The gym was large and well equipped. The views of the Dead Sea from the main building were fabulous. They also had a very unique pool with warm water looking over the Dead Sea. What a great place!
If I had a complaint it would be directed at the male concierge. I initially spoke to a female concierge who said they could set up transportation to Petra, one way, for 150 JD. After talking it over I spoke to a male concierge who told me the best price was 190 JD. I then found a taxi driver dropping off a guest and he picked us up and drove up to Petra for 70 JD.
