The initial impression was not great, despite there being only a few people in front at check in, it must have taken 30 minutes to check in with the assistance of our Arabic speaking driver, which is pretty poor. Although we had a room with a great sea view , the position on the 4th floor for some would be... More

Despite the initial good impression from the entrance and the pool, I was quickly dissapointed by the lack of elevators (ok, if you ask the front desk they'll arrange someone to bring your luggage to your room). Had it been the only problem, but it got worse as I saw the worn out room, with an old tv and and... More

We tried 2 rooms at 2 occasions. The first was looking to the court of the hotel. It was cozy but the quality was poor. The second was looking to the street in front of the hotel. It was more clean but very noisy. The restaurant is like a very crowded cheap self service restaurant in a factory. Every day... More

this hotel is situated with some others about 10km outside aqaba but there is free shuttle bus into Aqaba-but only 4 times a day and you need to book. There is a lovely pool complex and the marina it shares with other hotels and the beach itself are lovely. Our rooms were quite tired but the dining room was grubby... More

Hotel is situated miles away from Aqaba. A free shuttle is offered but its reservations for slots fill up quickly. Otherwise you arw looking at a 10JD taxi ride. Staff were the rudest I have ever encountered. Bolshy attitudes and reluctance to offer any service. Particularly given we were forced to wait for hours for our room to become available.... More

First and foremost there is no plug for any charging. No electric Kettle. We asked the reception they said they will provide us with the kettle but tea bags and creamer will cost us 10 JD. Since we had tea bags with us we said just send us the kettle. The kettle didn't arrive for 90 minutes, we had to... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights in October . The service and staff is good but the hotel is getting old and needs refurbishment/ renovation . The pool is nice and big and we had a great evening there . No wifi in the rooms. All in all decent but needs upgradation .

The hotel is situated in Tala Bay, access to private beaches and the marina. However the hotel's description doesn't reflect this. It's definitely not a 4 star hotel. We had difficulties getting into our room before three, our booking was questioned and we were initially told we had to pay twice what we had booked it for. The hotel states... More
