Arab Divers
Ranked #1 of 26 Speciality Lodging in Aqaba
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 October 2017

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.

I booked thru there office in aqaba center near MacDonald pickup from the city was easily, the staff are extremely helpful and friendly, the pool area contained a 3 meter deep pool and another 1 meter deep pool, they had beautiful terraces with the best sea view, close to the snorkeling and diving sites, they arrange diving trips all the day with great instructors, you can bring your own food and drinks but they have a good restaurant with reasonable prices.

We stayed here for one night on our last day in Jordan. The hotel is really well located for the beach - but be aware it is a bit of a walk to the seafront and having a car is handy. Also be cautious with valuables on the beach - staff told us it's really not safe to leave things (the first time we experienced this in Jordan).

Staff were really friendly and helpful on the desk, It was great to be able to hire snorkelling equipment for the day. The pool area was actually lovely, much nicer than in the photos, and loads of seating around the pool.

The room was really good - clean, good powered showers and nice bathrooms. Lots of space too. Wifi worked well.

This is a great place to stay to make the most of the lovely beach - it is a bit of a distance from the town so a car again is handy, although taxis were not expensive. Loads of nice restaurants etc in town too.

I stayed 2 nights and did 4 dives. Professional dive masters and equipment. Did my first wreck dives here which was memorable!

Hotel staff here are helpful and friendly and the food was good! Rooms have fan and aircon and are quiet and safe.

If you want to explore Aqaba city, it's about a 6JD cab fare one way.
