Location is good only if you like diving and staying at the hotel. It is a struggle getting a taxi to the centre of Aqaba. Most of them refuse to turn on the meter and will try to overcharge you. Same for the return to the hotel. Special thank you to Ricardo who introduced me into the world of diving....

We spent 3 nights in this hotel. It's rather a back-packers site, basic, but acceptable. Run by a father and two sons, as classical family business, offering nice atmosphere and very helpful owners. Beware of the sea-view rooms as they are facing the road thus are noisy. Restaurant is OK, but pricey for a dinner. Otherwise you can chill out...

Comfortable place for the amount paid. Basic but clean room with refrigerator and AC. We had a ocean view. There's a pool, included simple breakfast. We also booked a snorkeling tour through this hotel. The tour was 9 AM-2 PM, lunch and equipment included. If you don't want to pay 50 JD for a tour, you can also rent snorkeling...

The place was generally OK, the staff were kind, the food was good (although very expensive comparing to restaurants in Aqaba) and we were allowed to stay and use the pool after checkout. But we had no sleep during the night. The mattresses are concave and the springs pins your back. Better to sleep on the floor. We complained, the...
