Very pleasant indeed

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 5, 2015

This was my second Movenpick resort in as many days, and my second-ever stay in a 5* hotel.

The Movenpick Aqaba is beautifully designed, within easy walking distance of Aqaba centre and has its own private beach on the Red Sea. It's the sort of 'resort hotel' where I imagine the vast majority of guests never set foot outside the hotel because everything one needs is inside. And there are jet skis, boats, watersports galore, glass-bottomed boat trips........

Like all upmarket Jordan hotels there is security scanning on entry, but that is no big deal. The security people know who they are looking for and were always polite, friendly and chatty.

The hotel itself is extremely pleasant beautifully designed with ample restaurants, bars, places to sit and so on. There is a linking bridge across the busy road alongside which takes you through rather pleasant gardens to the summer and winter pools and to the private beach, with its sunbeds, palm-frond shades and its views over the Red Sea to Eilat in Israel. And f course there are shops and beauty salons and spas and fitness rooms and so on and so forth.

I found all the staff to be pleasant, friendly and helpful. The vast majority have very good English indeed, with just a few of the younger waiters obviously having to think hard.

My room was exceptionally comfortable and sparklingly clean, with free wifi or wired internet access, tea & coffee-making facilities and a mini-bar with free soft drinks (very useful indeed). The toiletries were very good quality.

Breakfast was a pretty lavish buffet with a wide choice of Arabic & international dishes, including pancakes and omelettes cooked on demand to your exact specifications. I particularly liked the wide range of seeds and nuts which I could add to my plain yoghurt, topped with honey, and the numerous different types of bread available.

I didn't eat in the hotel's restaurants (there are several serving a variety of cuisines at varying levels of formality) but I did have an Amstel draught beer. It was expensive, of course, because alcohol in Jordan hotels is expensive, but it was well-kept and very pleasant.

If you are the sort of person who enjoys resort hotels I'd certainly recommend this place. In fact, one of the people with whom I was travelling who is a regular 'resort' visitor had every intention of coming back for a proper holiday.

Directions: Just outside the centre of Aqaba, with its own direct link to the Red Sea beach.

Very Good

Arrived for two nights here, a very pleasant experiance. Good security and fast check in, staff were very helpful and quick to ensure any questions were answered. Clean, well maintained room. Most rooms have a balcony. Free minibar was very welcome. Located within walking distance of most of Aqaba. Upon exploring, this hotel has it's own shops, barbers, spa, several lifeguarded pools (as I recall one heated one not) a private restaurant on the beach (unfortunately seasonal only however) and its own private, clean beach (not just a clean section of a horrible beach like others, past the fence just as clean)
The food here was /the best/ I ate in Jordan. Buffet style, with an 'Indian station' of well trained chef's who will cook up whatever style you would like. A pleasant terrace area in the restaurant, with a view of the city was very nice. It is easy to see why this is rated #1 on this site. I would definately (and hopefully will) return.

Unique Quality: Private beach, shops and restaurants. Very good food.

An enjoyable stay for two nights after a week of hectic sit-seeing!

Luxury with a few oddities!

The room was good ---al mod-cons ---but the bathroom needed a little tlc.

The outside courtyard restaurant was popular but the courses were all served together and there were ferral cats on unused tables!

There were pools and a private beach, hotel shops etc etc.

The best place to eat, drink and relax... the balcony area through the bar on the ground floor.

Would I stay there again? Yes! It was better than the Crowne Plazas in Petra and Amman.

Unique Quality: As above.

While in Jordan we were not allowed to stay away from the ship, this was for security reasons, so we were told, but we did get to spend a lot of time here and had we been given the opportunity I would have stayed here, the facilities alone were impresive and fun, in particualar the bar. very nice...

Unique Quality: MAJESTICALLY LOCATED IN THE CENTRE OF AQABA, OVERLOOKING THE RED SEA AND WITH DIRECT ACCESS TO ITS OWN PRIVATE BEACH, THE 5-STAR RESORT IS AN ARCHITECTURAL GEM. WITH 296 ROOMS AND SUITES, 9 RESTAURANTS, 4 POOLS, SNOOPY CLUB FOR CHILDREN AND MEETING FACILITIES FOR UP TO 550 PERSONS, THE MOEVENPICK RESORT AQABA IS THE IDEAL CHOICE FOR BUSINESS OR PLEASURE.

Directions: LOCATED IN THE CENTRE OF AQABA,
