Truly exceptional hotel

5 out of 5
by from Riverside, CA
Posted Feb 18, 2017
Pros: The down blanket and down pillows were just what I needed for a good night's rest. Even the corners of the rooms were clean. Dual pane windows.
Location: it is right by the dead sea and they have their own private beach. Lots of shopping within walking distance.
I wish I could have stayed for more than one night. It was a late booking and the hotel did not have a standard non smoking room available, so they gave me a one bedroom suite with an ocean view. That's great customer service!

A Week in Aqaba

5 out of 5
by from Toronto, Canada
Posted Oct 14, 2016
Pros: The room was great and the pools and private beach were great. Dive shop offered through the hotel - Sinbad - were also superior.
Cons: We chose no meal option with the room. Food is a bit expensive in Jordan but the price for meals at the hotel were well above that.
Location: Scuba diving in the Red Sea. Hotel works with Sinbad which operates from the Bernice private beach. Great dive sites and experienced dive masters.
We chose a sea-view king bed room due to a great deal offered on Expedia. The hotel exceeded expectations in all respects

A nice hotel but also a very busy hotel. Obviously catering to large families and groups. Definitely more staff needed at reception. Lots of noise in the public areas...music, DJ etc so if that's your thing then great. Nice sized room and lovely view. Nice roomy dining area and breakfast was good.

Family-oriented resort

4 out of 5
by from Dubai
Posted Aug 8, 2016
Nice hotel, and perfectly pleasant. It's difficult to find activities off-site that aren't in a business relationship with the hotel - they aren't much on telling you about other things in the area. Breakfast was tasty and copious, but this is a very family hotel and the dining room is so jammed it's hard to find a table if you're there in a peak time. Nice to have the shuttle to and from the beach clubs on the south shore. I'd probably stay in the resort one down at Talaba Bay next time, but I'm very glad I stayed here this time because it was the only place in Jordan I got to walk through the actual city with local people instead of a tourist area (Petra, Dead Sea).
