Alcazar Hotel
Ranked #34 of 41 Hotels in Aqaba
Reviewed 28 January 2007

I have to disagree with the other review, we're just back from there and Aqaba, and the Alcazar in particular are a great place to spend the New Year. The hotel isn't the newest but has a great location and the rooms are huge, especially the superior rooms ! As for the New Year's Eve party it was a hooley, there was a huge buffet, a dj and some traditonal dancers/musicians to keep us entertained, we had great craic.

The dive centre, SeaStar Watersports is a PADI 5* IDC Centre, it may not be the cheapest but with diving you have to way up the safety, experience and professionalism of the centre. I'm not saying that the other centre(s) are not up to scratch but did the other reviewer check the centre's safey equipement, their air quality certificate and chat to the staff about their qualifications and experience ? Anyone can open a shop, buy equipement and bring you diving, but it takes a lot to become and retain a 5* IDC status within the PADI organisation. They even have their own Course Director, which proves that the staff are commited to continuing their own professional development.

The Alcazar also has their own private beach club, where if you're not diving you can relax. There is a pool, access to the beach and food and drink are available all day. I would particarly recommend Basil's (The chef) vegetarian pizza, its delicious. There is something magical about after finishing a great days diving to watch, from the terrace of the beach club, the sun setting over the sinai !


To sum up, the Alcazar offers large clean rooms with balconies in a great location, it's not 5* and doesn't pretend to be, and it's dive centre is professional and experienced. We've sent people to stay and dive with them and had no negative feedback at all.

This hotel was a good find. The room rates include a very decent breakfast with omelettes, crepes, meats, cheeses, pastries, coffee, tea, fruit, fresh orange juice. The rooms are a good size with full falconies, satellit TV, large shower, seperate shower/toilet and sink sections which is nice for more than one person, room comes with 2 chairs and table for dining and chest of drawars. AC unit is really decent. No beach access which can be negative as access is through private hotels. You can do like we did and use beach access at another nice hotel. Food and ATMs in walking distance, free parking. Bars are also in close proximity, a favorite was "Friends" that is modeled after the hit NBC tv show!

We found the hotel to be quite run down and in need of renovation. The staff are friendly and helpful, but the biggest draw is its association with a great dive centre (PADI 5-star) located in the basement and the facilities of Club Murjan, a short shuttle bus ride away.
