Nice beach with white sand. To beach entry, you have beach boy welcome with 3 towels and sunbed. Security on the beach is on highest level and if something happen, security guards react immediately. Fantastic view on Red sea, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Israel that would be even more beautiful that all these countries are not in unfriendly relations. All... More

I tend to agree with the review by Bambino. The policy of using security to check luggage for alcohol and then confiscate prior to check in is both outrageous and embarrassing . We purchased two bottles of wine to take home as gifts and were quite shocked to have our suitcases scanned by security which was then reported to the... More

If you really want the best beach vacation imaginable, this is it. You are greeted with cooling, moist coconut-scented facecloths in the lobby, your room has sweeping views of the Gulf of Aqaba, the beach is small and exquisite (the swimming the best on earth), the assortment of pools enchanting, the music on the midnight terrace bewitching, the restaurant options...

First shock was at the gate. Our driver and guide had to show the reservation and they had to verify before we were allowed in. Guards gave the feeling we were not wanted and it was a big favour for them to allow us in. Second and worse shock was when we were told by the receptionist we were not... More

Took the deluxe double room: The room is very large room, both the hotel and room are very clean. The stuff were very friendly and the service was very good. The room (four floor) had a great view. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends.

The problem with Kempinski is that it lacks a strong brand identity and there is little consistency from one hotel to another. Standards of service tend to be haphazard and the Aqaba hotel is no exception. Too many nationalities using English as a common language means that this Kempinski resembles the Tower of Babel. The bathrooms are designed to be... More
