Dear Sonali S,
I am happy to read that you thought of our location very convenient for your visit to the Treasury. I am also happy that you liked our breakfast and we are really wishing you find it very rich and delicious.
We hope we welcome you back and hopefully your next visit to Petra is anytime soon.
We selected Movenpick for our two-night trip to Petra in December 2017 largely (as most people have mentioned) because of the location; it's literally across the street from the visitor's entrance. The night before we arrive, we'd had a very bad experience with our hotel at the Dead Sea, so we were really hoping that Movenpick wouldn't turn out to be another lazy, sloppy hotel skating by on its location alone. Fortunately, we were very pleasantly surprised, and Movenpick turned out not only to be a great place to stay while enjoying Petra, but a very nice hotel in its own right.
The hotel itself is beautifully decorated and in excellent condition (despite obviously being an older building). The rooms are a little dated, but also very clean, well-maintained, and comfortable. We didn't have much of a view from our side of the building, but we didn't spend a ton of time there anyway.
We ate at the buffet restaurant for all our meals -- normally I find buffets pretty gross, but Movenpick's selection and presentation were beyond reproach. The food was fresh and delicious, and there seemed to be an excellent variety of all different types of international and local cuisine.
Most importantly, service was excellent across the board. The concierge was very helpful in answering questions about tours at Petra, as well as arranging transportation from the border crossing. The wait staff at the restaurant were extremely polite, friendly, and attentive, and the head chef himself at each meal helped my wife identify gluten-free dishes (of which there were many).
My wife has worked for several five-star luxury hotels, so she's got a very good sense for quality not only of the accommodations, but of service as well. While the accommodations were comfortable and pleasant, we found the service and the attention to detail to be what made the trip for us.
Petra alone is worth the trip at any destination, but Movenpick really was the perfect introduction to Jordan for us!
Dear Jason K,
Thank you for sharing your pleasant experience during your stay at Movenpick Petra. I am really happy that we were given the opportunity to host you during your visit to Petra. We are also grateful that you acknowledge the excellent work of the team and I really hope that we made your vacation extra special.
We look forward welcoming you back. Please keep Jordan and Movenpick Petra in your future travel plans.
We were here for two nights mid-September 2017. The main drawing card is the great location so close to the entrance gate of Petra. Rooms were very nice - clean, well equipped, good beds. The bar is well appointed, the rooftop restaurant is magical at sunset, breakfast buffet has lots of choices and the staff is well trained. Money transactions and bill paying both go slowly. One of our party of four did also get ill after the rooftop dinner. He was a world business traveler who was extremely careful about the food he ate away from home. It was his first illness. If you can sign up for a candle light dinner in a Bedouin tent on the desert, do so. Quite an experience!
Dear Clayton B,
Thank you for your review and I hope your companion is better now. But I am glad that the rest of you who had the same dinner enjoyed the experience same as our other foreign guests who dined as well at the Roof Garden during your stay.
I took a note of your comment about the payment procedure and rest assured that we will work on making the process more efficient and fast to avoid inconveniences of our guests.
We really wish you will get the chance to visit Petra again so that we can welcome you back at Movenpick Petra.
We were in this resort over New Years and they put on a fabulous celebration that was definitely worth the money. Pleasant atmosphere and people, the staff are very accommodating. And the hotel is GORGEOUS. Plus you are the closest hotel to Petra...
Dear Chloe R,
Happy New Year. We really want to thank you for making us part of your celebration in welcoming 2018 and I am really happy to know that you had a fantastic time at Movenpick Petra. It is always good to know we are given the opportunity of making people happy.
Please visit us again. The team and I at Movenpick Petra love to have you back again.
Stayed here for 2 nights and we chose the hotel because of its location and friends had recommended it. The hotel is older (my sister stayed here some 20+ years ago), but it is well maintained, clean, comfortable and does exactly what it's supposed to do in a friendly and relaxing environment. Excellent breakfast.
Thank you for your positive review and the compliments you have for Movenpick Petra. Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience with us and the online community. I am also glad to know that our efforts in keeping our standards and maintaining our resort are appreciated and recognised by our loyal guests.
Please visit us again. The team and I look forward having you back.
