I stayed here for 1 night as part of a tour around Jordan. My room was not available until 4:15 pm. When I finally got in my room, it hadn't been cleaned, the mini-bar hadn't been stocked (and was even switched off) and the door was wide open. Everyone else in my tour group had similar issues! There is no...

It was our last stop in Jordan. It was so crowned. The bedroom was dirty when we arrived, we paid for three beds room and we got two normal beds and small added one. When we complained on the reception about it, they told us there was not that kind of bedrooms, even if we paid for it before we...

We spent one night in Aqaba and stayed at Aqaba Gulf Hotel. It has a nice location with short walking distance to the beach, shopping malls and restaurants, and the rooms were nice. However, I was very disappointed by the staff, as I had become used to the friendly and wonderful service that we had gotten everywhere else in Jordan....

Good location, and a great outdoor pool area, but rooms are showing wear and look a little tired. Rated a 4 start hotel, Aqaba Gulf Hotel felt more like a 3 star, and though clean and comfortable was dated and overpriced compared to other newer options in the area. On the good side it is licenced and has happy hour...

The hotel is close to many venues, including many dive shops. The Dinner buffet is good, however, the buffet staff prohibits you from consuming any beverages, including bottled water not purchased in the restaurant, forcing you either to purchase their medium water bottle at $4 (USD), or not drinking anything at dinner. Breakfast buffet was good, they served drinking water...

The bed matress was good and the blankets were soft and comfortable. The dining area was clean and tidy, but the food was mediocre (also, you have to pay for your drinks...
