Its a dive center with a nice hotel attached. Charming comfortable homely rooms. Good bathrooms. Friendly staff. Very good breakfast, though for some reason it doesn't include water.
Professional diving instructors. I was a first time try-diver, but I was given a briefing and had two good dives. I was taken straight to the sea after the briefing, but some people may like to have a quick session in the pool before hitting the sea.
Location is close to the south beach which is where the diving sites are, but it is also a good way off from the main Aqaba town. So staying here makes sense only if one is interested in diving/snorkelling.
Other dive centers included photos and videos of the dive as part of the deal. Here they offered only photos, but its okay as I think the dive instructor's main focus should be on the diver's safety. One could get a sense that these guys are really passionate about diving.
