Reviewed 26 January 2014

Its in the centre of Aqaba. Luxury, comfortable and very good service. Although it was on construction, it didn't bother us much. The best thing is sitting in the bar beside the beach watching sunset and had a glass of wine...One thing important, there is no internet in the room!

Reviewed 20 January 2014

Loved our stay in this comfortable hotel. Staf was very nice and service minded. Room (suite)was very spacious with beautiful view and I never had such a good night's sleep. Beach was nice as well as the pools. The only little downside was the price/quality ratio at the beach restaurant. Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel!

Loved this hotel. It's posh but not snobby, the pool is perfection and the staff are lovely. Beds are amazing as are the balconies, we were super comfortable. Only less than perfect experience was the massage, I splurged but in hindsight wish I had saved my money, it was nice enough but I think overpriced, and I felt pressure to...

The quality of materials used in this hotel is excellent. The spacious rooms all have a nice view and minibar usage is free. Wifi was only available in the lobby and on the balcony of the room.
