Nice, but not for me
Breakfast is great, the private beach is close, though it feels a little disconnected from the resort as it actually is. Rooms are clean and comfortable. It's genuinely a nice hotel. However, the pools looked overcrowded with kids running everywhere. So if you have children, you may like this resort. Since it was just my husband and me, we stuck with the beach where there was a little more leg room. The customer service was mediocre with one exception, since we were there on my husband's birthday, we were surprised with a delicious cake when we returned to the room. As far as location, the hotel is very isolated, near the Saudi Arabian border, about a 10-15 minute drive into Aqaba town where all the restaurants are. We had a rental car so we were fortunate as I wouldn't want to depend on a shuttle that departs only five times a day. There is a restaurant at the hotel, but as you can imagine it's over priced as there is no real competition. Overall, it just wasn't worth the money for me. I'd rather spend more and do better (center of town, more pools and a connecting beach), or spend less with more of a no-frills experience.

Poor1.0 / 5
DON'T STAY HERE - NOT WORTH WHAT YOU WILL SAVE!
- 2 (of 4) of the chairs in the room were broken and we fell through them! Plus I got scratched by a nail on the chair when it happened. - The phone in the room couldn't be used to call reception. The hotel is big, and it was a hike from the room to reception if you needed something. - There was a coffee maker in the room but no mugs… - They keys for the room kept de-magnetizing. It got to the point where I got them to re-magnetize the keys each time we went to the room, just in case. - There was a shortage of pool towels. We were lucky to get them when we arrived! Whenever we tried to exchange for clean ones, we were told there were none. - When we returned our towels, the guy noticed that one of them had a rip and tried to BLAME US! - They say that there's wifi in the common areas, but it works for some 1 minute out of every 10. Really, there is NO wifi. - They claim to have a gym, they don't. As in, it’s closed forever, not being repaired. - Breakfast and its service were a JOKE! The bread was stale and the teacups were dirty. They didn't have enough staff for the number of guests, so you had to wait just to get a bowl to eat from. Also, each breakfast, EVERY table was either occupied or full of dirty dishes. To make it worse, when we addressed this with the staff (and heard other guests do the same), they gave us ATTITUDE!

Should be less than 4 star
The room is incredibly small, the TV was not working, the cleaning service was bad, and the staff are not familiar with online payment services. Also the price is expensive related to the services.

Nice place
I stayed there for 3 nights after a week trip in Jordan. It was the perfect place to rest for a few days, just snorkelling at the beach or having bath sun near the pool. People at the hotel were very friendly, service is good : booking for excursions, relaxing center, shuttles to Aqaba,...
