We spent 3 nights in this hotel. It's rather a back-packers site, basic, but acceptable. Run by a father and two sons, as classical family business, offering nice atmosphere and very helpful owners. Beware of the sea-view rooms as they are facing the road thus are noisy. Restaurant is OK, but pricey for a dinner. Otherwise you can chill out...

Comfortable place for the amount paid. Basic but clean room with refrigerator and AC. We had a ocean view. There's a pool, included simple breakfast. We also booked a snorkeling tour through this hotel. The tour was 9 AM-2 PM, lunch and equipment included. If you don't want to pay 50 JD for a tour, you can also rent snorkeling...

The place was generally OK, the staff were kind, the food was good (although very expensive comparing to restaurants in Aqaba) and we were allowed to stay and use the pool after checkout. But we had no sleep during the night. The mattresses are concave and the springs pins your back. Better to sleep on the floor. We complained, the...

We spent 3 nights at Darna. On the positive side, the room was clean, spacious, laid back ambience, With a Great view to the sea and direct acces to fine snorkelling sites. Good value for money. The downside was the lousiest food we had for ten days trip in Jordan. Vegetables and chicken straight from the freezer and fried to...

We really enjoyed our stay here; the hotel is right across the road from the beach & a good reef for snorkeling; the rooms are big & comfortable & there is a lovely pool with sea views. The restaurant serves good food at reasonable prices.

This is a great place to stay if you are a confident snorkeller (or even if you want guiding). Cross the road, swim out along the line of buoys and you are on the reef, as easy as that. The hotel was quiet when we were there and we often had the pool and loungers to ourselves. The food is...

We stayed here right after Ramadan had started, and because of which it was low season and we were the only guests on the property. The staff was helpful, especially the manager. But fasting takes its toll and sometimes people become tired and have less patience, wouldn't blame it one them. Nevertheless, the resort was nice, you can ask for...

We enjoyed our stay at Darna Village very much. The rooms were basic, but functional and always clean and tidy. The facilities were cosy and the pool a great place to cool off. The staff was always friendly and arranged great day trips for us, also on short notice. We took diving lessons with Darna Village and had a lot...

The hotel is situated next to the south beach, with a beautiful view to it. The beach itself is rather dirty, but the snorkeling there is great. The rooms of the hotel are sparse but roomy and clean (except for the various colonies of ants). Toilet, shower, air conditioning and fridge work well. There is a pool in the hotel...

WE found this place by accident and they had a nice pool, but what makes it is the snorkelling directly across from the hotel - magic sights under the sea with just a snorkel. Rooms are clean and they offers nice service, especially the lemon juice with mint was welcome.
