This hotel ticks all the boxes in terms of location, comfort and luxury. Although it was marred by the absurd policy of precluding any one bringing back a bottle of wine to the hotel. I have never paid $550+ australian per night for a room in a hotel anywhere in the world and stopped at the door to have my...

This place will take care of every need you will have. The room is big, clean and the view is perfect. The service is near perfect, the staff are welcoming and always ready to help. The only problem we had with the service was when the breakfast was crowded with people, the staff keep forgetting things you asked for and...

The hotel has a great location in aqaba. The rooms are very nice with a great view. There were mostly clean (besides some dust in the bathroom and the corner of the room). However the furniture looks a little bit to old and worn down and don't fit the rest of the standard of the hotel. The breakfast was excellent....

Third or fourth time at this hotel; even after trying most other hotels in town and Tala Bay, we still prefer this over any other in Aqaba.

W We stayed only for one night but almost 2 full days as a needed break after marvelous Petra. We could have stayed longer and used it as base for exploring the Wadi Rum desert - next time.

We checked in to a junior suite, room 701. Nice and spacious, and very comfortable bed. Cleaning and the room staff are great. Beautiful bathroom with bath tube as well as separate rain shower. A small complementary mini bar (non-alcoholic) is included. The only "not perfect" thing was the balcony - you could expect a good position compared to ordinary...
