Far from the city noise and close to the Red Sea, our beach hotel is the perfect place to start or finish your tour of Jordan, relax and enjoy the sea.

Renovated in early 2014.

Last renovation: early 2014.
The room is air conditioned and has a private bathroom with a walk-in shower.
Towels and bed linen are of course provided.

This room has 3 single beds.
If you need more rooms or extra beds, please message us before booking.
Wireless internet connection is available free of charge in the common areas: restaurant and around the swimming pool.

It is a great location for a relaxing holiday, snorkeling and diving.

Interaction with Guests
Guests will be served by our hotel staff.
Myself, I work at our back office in the city, I seldom meet the guests in person.
We are located in the South Beach area, which is a public beach, some 12 kms south of the downtown.
We are only 50 meters from the sea, beach facilities include a playground for kids, a snacks' kiosk, shades, toilet and shower.
Coral reefs along the coast line offer some great snorkeling. Recommended for beginners too, as the sites are easily accessible from the shore.
Public buses to South Beach departs from above Aqaba Castle ruins (near the Big Flagpole).
There is no fixed schedule, the buses run during the day in cca. every 30 minutes.
Bus fare is 0.5 JD per person.
Taxi from Aqaba downtown costs around 6-7 JD, from Aqaba Airport or Eilat border the taxi fare is around 25 JD.
Other Things to Note
We are not licensed to sell alcohol so we can only serve alcohol-free beer in our restaurant.
Our rooms are non-smoking, so please only smoke in the open areas.
Please make sure the air-conditioner and the lights are switched off every time you leave your room.
Please do not take the towels we provide to the beach.
Pets are welcome, but the owners are responsible for looking after them and making sure they don't bother other guests in the hotel.
The snorkeling and food were great, but lots of remodeling and no hot water were unfortunate struggles. The hosts are very, very kind and helpful
Overall, the place was OK. We've lived in Jordan on and off for 8 years and we are looking for a reasonable priced place that we can return to...we both walked away not convinced that this would fit that need. The accommodations were fine and the room was clean. However, the service was 2 stars at best. We will probably try a different place next time. Our room was not ready when we arrived (confirmed 12 noon arrival) and we were not offered to store our bags and go to the pool or anything. We drove back into Aqaba (10 minute drive) and returned 3 hours later. I would rather stay in a 3 star hotel in the middle of Aqaba. I suggest looking into other options.
Wir waren 5 Personen und Ende Mai 2012 bei Eszter.... Kleine Anlage wie auf den Fotos, leider nicht mehr in dem Zustand wie auf den Fotos....Klimaanlage kaputt, keine Tür am Badezimmer/WC, Kakerlakenbefall.... dafür aber ein schöner Pool.... der Strand vis-a-vis ist leider auch nicht so schön und ungeeignet für Frauen die sich im Badeanzug oder Bikini zeigen wollen... in den Räumen ist
