Extravagant Hotel Mar 29, 2011
Absolutely a great hotel.

The staff was great. The Country was friendly.

I just wished I had more time to visit....

Not far from Petra and great views of the Red Sea.

Tired and Tatty Jul 09, 2009
Having had only good experiences with Movenpick hotels, we didn't hesitate to book this one.

However, it turned out to be possibly the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. Very tatty all over and not at all clean. Tiles in the bathroom were cracked and even missing. Toilet tissue was not replenished, tea and coffee making ingredients were never topped up. Crockery from a room service meal was left in our room for three days. Curtains were heavily stained, as were most of the soft furnishings. Staff in general were unhelpful and often downright rude.

On the upside, the hotel is in a perfect location but really that's the only plus we can attribute to this very tatty and neglected poor quality establishment.

This is one hotel we will definitely never book again.

We have long been fans of Moevenpick hotels, but our stay here changed all that. This hotel was a huge let-down. Our room was dirty and shabby. The staff were unhelpful and the hotel was generally in a poor state of repair.

Food was of a reasonable standard but, the service at the restaurants was very poor. Certainly, this is one of the worst hotels we have stayed redeeming features...just a very poor standard all round.

The bedrooms are extremely tired and overdue for re-furbishment: walls were marked, cabinets were badly scratched, bath had holes worn in the enamel, grout between the tiles was dirty. These are all things that cannot be fixed by daily cleaning.

Apparently there is a new (Swiss) manager who has recently taken over and there are signs that re-furbishment is starting - one of the pools was being re-lined while we were there. This must have been a stunning hotel when it opened and I hope that it can be made so again.
