Exceptional 10.0
Visiting Aqaba with friends
This is a great value for money hotel. Very spacious and clean rooms. Our city view was amazing, specially in the night. The balcony was big enough to enjoy the view from our room. Breakfast and dinner buffet was tasty and there were many options to choose from. Internet connection was working with no issues. Location not very near to the centre but I would definitely go back :-)

Skip eatting there, otherwise very nice hotel
The hotel was very nice, and service was great from the front desk manager, but we had dinner and breakfast at the hotel and the food was not very good. Service was horrible in the restaurant. We never could get coffee in the morning.

Great for snorkelling
Great hotel but you are a little way out of town - we had a car so it was perfect. Beach club was excellent and very very close to the best Snorkelling spot.

Superb choice at Aqaba
Excellent hotel to stay at Aqaba. Staff goes out of their way to ensure that the stay is comfortable. I would stay again and recommend to others too.

Good 6.0
One time error
When I was paying i noticed an increase in the price and when I asked I was told that's an optional donation, I requested that to be removed from the bill, I spoke to the manager and it seems that they're not aware of such a thing and it was an individual act, they said they'll look into it. Also, My wife and I were sleeping when 2 housekeeping men entered the room and turned the light on, they claimed they knocked by we didn't hear and they came in despite the Do not disturb sign light was on. they were told that we needed extra toilet paper but it wasnt us who called for it. Regardless there's no excuse to justify such an action, I spoke to the manager about it he was very kind and apologetic, he sat me down explained the procedure they have ordered me a drink a compensated me for such an error. I think the compensation should have a little better. The staff that entered my room did apologize however he was still telling me unacceptable excuses for such an action. It is something that I am still very upset about, but I don't believe that this is something that happens often, and everything else about the hotel was fabulous, the breakfast, service, and staff were all great overall.
