The place is less than basic and lacks all the touristic basics. Never try on Friday and overall not recommended

Very HOT, the locals are not very friendly, the city was in disrepair. The beach was not pleasant. Not much to do.

It was a friday morning and it was over crowded. At points, it was even dirty and smelly. Wouldn't recommend it to any tourist.

Full of trash. No decent fasilities. You draw attention too much. If you have beach at your hotel you don't have reason to come here.

Typical tourist trap. Lots of sellers of junk. Here you can hire a glass boat to go around in Aqaba bay. Next door to Eilat in Israel. You can fly with parachute after a speed boat and much much more!
