Undoubtedly the best resort on this stretch. I dont think any of the other resorts come even close. The property itself is beautifully designed. Service has been really good. We tried the food at their Italian restaurant which was mediocre but the breakfast and coffee shop food is quite good. Infact the only hotel in Jordan where i found a decent Asian selection. Though Arabic food is great, after a week in Jordan we wanted some change and pleasantly surprised with their menu selection.
The hotel also upgraded us to junior suite which was nice. However we found that many things weren't working. For e.g: the shaving mirror and the safe were falling apart. The bathroom had an old cigarette stub which was probably there for a decade looking at its condition.
Apart from these minor snags, the property itself is beautiful. Has a very nice view of the Dead sea. Certainly worth the money and stay.
