Service oriented staff and cleaning of the rooms twice a day. Every room has a magnificent view of the Red Sea. The hotel has several restaurants but all of them quite ordinary. Morning buffet is however abundant and contains both arabic and occidental dishes.

This hotel is great. The staff are attentive and we've been well looked after. Our room, a standard king is well appointed and clean. It's centrally located in Aqaba, close to the little hub of cafes, restaurants and ice cream parlours.

Everything at the hotel was top-notch, but what set our stay here apart from the rest of our travels was Rawad Haddad, a very friendly chap manning the pool bar, whom besides for making the most excellent cocktails, was happy to share tips and knowledge about the city of Aqaba, and Jordan in general.

This hotel is a real 5 star hotel, the hotel decorations and furniture is like a masterpiece. Staff are professional and friendly, the only drawback is the size of the main pool is a little bit small and the number of benches is not enough. In conclusion it was a great pleasant experience.
