Various pools and one heated pool
Private beach and a lot of daybead at the beach
Very clean spacious room and bathroom
Free shuttle to Aqaba city center- there are about 10 shuttles in a day.
Exceptionally freindly and helpful staff
Among Aqaba high-end resorts, most attractive price.

-
No shower robe and slippers
Location- Not in Aqaba city center. It takes about 20 minutes by car,and I paid 10jd for Taxi.
Free wifi is very unstable in my room. (Common area such as bar is available and strong.)
Beach is somewhere difficult to walk around because there are too much pebbles. But it is very nice to dive or snokle as water is so clear.
For dinner they have just two option except room service. Dinner buffet and asian restaurant. I think it has to be more various because there is no local restaurantnear or town around resort.
Airport shuttle is only fitted with Royal Jordanian Airline, so I can't use it.

Overall
It is absolutely excellent hotel with affordable price in Aqaba.
(just half of most expensive resort in Aqaba)
However, as a 5 stars hotel, there are some weak point that should be improved.
Resort itself is nice enough to relax and enjoy Aqaba sea.
Concerning Aqaba city center has not much attraction, location is not bad. Only drawback is that there is no meal option without resort.
As a result, highly recommanded! Especially owing to its kind staffs.

a very good room, nice breakfast and very helpful stuff.

the only disadvantages we found were a dirty water in the heated swimming pool, leaking shower in the room and very high prices for food and beer comparing to the prices outside the hotel. The latter we solved by eating on Tala Bay :)

Beautiful hotel with good food and splendid pool areas. Just next to the Red Sea.The rooms are very nice and with a good view over the sea. Staff are helpfull and polite. But but but...the overall impression is totally ruined by the hotel managements misunderstood ideas of outdoor music. Loud music EVERYWHERE!! Music at the breakfast table, music at the Bay dinning & bar, and music at the Beach bar.... and all totally mixed together in one noisy background. I mean...the average age of the guests are more than 50...or families with small kids. And the music played are the latest from the hip hop / rock scene or normal elevator music. People are here to relax and fill up the batteries - if I want music I can simply listen to my Iphone through my earplugs (and choose MY OWN music). The music at the hotel seems only to be to the benefit of the employees or the hotel wants a profile like an Ibiza hotel - but then.....wrong clients. I will never visit the hotel again.

Room Tip: Dont choose this hotel...unless they get another management :-)

Amazing relax...
Wake up in the morning whit nice sounds of pray, jog, make a small workout, yoga, swim in the sea and the perfect day begins.
Everything what you need is in your mind. But if you are not that kind:
Hotel is very big, quiet, tended and beautiful. Landscape is amazing: sea, mountains, beautiful marina in the morning, flowers and you feel something special in the air. A lot of pools, one is heated and open until 22, so you can swim in the night! Just you and stars .
For activities you can choose diving, snorkelling or find trainer Julia. She arranges every day some kind of sport: aqua gym, yoga, volleyball, dance lessons.
The food was excellent: well cooked and various. The pastry is something special, just try it and you can’t stop  Local food like humus, falafel , tabule salad is very very delicious. Thanks chef Wassim, he makes it great. Stuff is very polite and friendly they even remember names and room number! Bayan in the reception knows everything, ask her, she can help if you have problems. Service is on the top, they have even cleaned sunglasses without asking on the beach!

There are some sea “citizens” and corals in the sea, so you should have water shoes. Ok, some of you can say “sea is not clean”, but who has done it? We, tourists.  Please take care about it, it’s our home

The location of this resort right on the Red Sea is absolutely breathtaking. The resort itself has beautiful swimming pools and clean, modern rooms. I have stayed two nights on two separate occasions and had fantastic experiences both times. Special thanks to Khaldoun Tobolat for making us feel welcome!
