                      This is truely an excellent hotel, the hotel pictures are how this hotel actually looks. From the minute we entered the hotel ( from 48 degrees outside to a cool lobby handed cooling tissues upon entry)i we felt a warm welcome, and it was a nice safe heaven in Aqaba. The pool area was excellent and different in it layout, the pool guard actually twice went into prompt action and saved careless unable swimmers :-) - the beach was very nice as well, well attended by beach staff at all times. ( as the beach had been cleared there were no corals and fish - however nice area anyway). The breakfast buffet is very good - the cook really pleasant - he even went through the trouble to write me an English version of one of his excellent local dishes (from the evening buffet) - and after a few days the staff knew us by name in the restaurant areas. The minibar was filled once a day - as part of the room charge - a nice feature in the heat :-). To conclude - I have traveled the world for 30 years and stayed in many 5 star hotels both for business and pleasure, this hotel is one of my favorites, is was new and fresh with good design, the service was excellent and we never missed anything anywhere, the rooms were perfect and the staff and management everywhere welcoming and ready to fullfill your every wish. There is a Gym, a Spa and several dining options. One of our family member had a very nice 3 day diving certificate experience using the beach Diveshop contact.

                      I really did enjoy all about the hotel - one small thing, that would not prevent me from going again would be some of the other guests - over the week-end the place was quite full and I do respect different customs in different cultures, however some of the families were very rude to the staff and taking no consideration what so ever to other guests - (Maybe part of high class behavior in certain parts of the world). The hotel did their best to adjust extreme behavior in a very polite manner. In either case an experience of other cultures which I do value and is my purpose of traveling the world. Aqaba city is quite limited, we enjoy shopping as well and I think this will be developed further going forward.

                      Excellent staff and services all are friendly

                      Too much security questions about confirmation if you are resedent. The room check in is too late (3pm) and room check out is early (12am) so acutualy it is not 24 hours per day (it is only 21 hours)

                      Great hotel, probably the best in the area of Aqaba. It is a bit on the expensive side but def worth the extra $ if you are looking for a no surprise relaxing vacation. Excellent service across the front desk, the restaurant, concierge and the pool side. I travel quite often across the gulf - the person named Abdullah at the front desk is probably one of the most helpful and diligent hotel staff I've ever dealt with in the region! He truly went above and beyond ensuring we get the best service throughout our stay.

                      In house dining is comparatively expensive than the options available in the Aqaba downtown.
