              There services are not fast and poor

            • Couple
              6.6

              Concierge, excellent staff

              Lots of mosquitos in the room! Reception desk could be better staffed; poor understanding of english, at least the night shift. Hydraulic problems in the bathroom were never solved...

            • Family with children
              9.4

              Excellent location. Wonderful poor & beach.

              Relatively poor breakfast in comparison with the cost

            • Single
              8.2

              Excellent location and services. The concierge (Johny) was one of the most helpful (and pleasant) ever!

              Can't think of anything that wasn't to like. Just wish there could have been more time to enjoy the hotel and Aqaba.

            • Group of friends
              7.8

              Staff were very helpful. We were upgraded and given lounge services for a nominal fee. Great concierge service for arranging Petra transport and restaurant choices. We left early and the hotel threw in a great gratis boxed lunch

              decor a little aged. Currency exchange troublesome.

            • Couple
              8.2

              This is a wonderfull hotel. It is probably the most beautiful of Aqaba. Make sure you take a room with sea-view, the others look very cramped (stayed one night in one looking towards the Kempinski, and the others overlooking the Red Sea). It has wonderful breakfast. You should take this hotel!

              The staff does not all speak well english, and check-in is quite chaotic. The location is quite far from the center. The pool closes opens at 8am and closes at 5pm. No late night swimming!

            • Couple
              6.2

              The rooms were very nice

              We had a horrible experience of food poisoning following our diner at InterContinental Aqaba. The hotel did not believe it was their food which caused the problem and we got absolutely no compensation.

            • Couple
              9.6

              We liked the Red Sea beach and the various pools and hot tubs. The restaurants were also quite enjoyable.

            • Group of friends
              7.4

              The staff at the rezeption desk was very helpful (Omar)

              left and right of the hotel the location /cleanlesss is very bad

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              the staff and the quality of the services (good advises), efficiency of the check-in/check-out

            • Group of friends
              7.4

              I liked my stay very much!

              You can arrange some holliday discounts to stimulate arrival of the travellers

            • Couple
              5.0

              The location was okay and the hotel had a clean private beach.

              The Staff was very agressive, unfriendly and kept staring at you if you had a bit of an uncommon look. The food was at a very low standard (except for the breakfast buffet).The swimming pools were crowded with ladies wearing their Burkini. Definitely not the most friendly place to go on holidays. Avoid booking there.

            • Family with children
              4.6

              It has a good location and sadly that is the only good thing I can think of to say about the place

              Our room had an ant infestation, we were changed to another room promptly. Later in the evening we went down to have a drink in the bar, there was a fingernail in my drink. The staff and bar manager tried to pass this off as a lemon seed, now there is significant difference between a fingernail and a lemon seed. I was disgusted about the way this was handled and tried to explain to management that it is more important to be honest and it would have been a relief to me to know if there had been a cut to the finger that lost said nail as I now feel the need to have myself screened to rule out any blood bourne infections ie hep C.

            • Single
              8.2

              The room was very clean and comfortable.

              Although the Booked.net website says that all of the rooms have wifi, nome of them do, only an Ethernet cable. Wifi was only available in the lobby.

            • Single
              6.6

              Nice swimming pool & seaview Not bad rooms.

              Very slow in check in & out, it took me about 45 min's to check in Staff can be more friendly.
