Hotel Reviews

Crowne Plaza Amman

Amman

Decent hotel, but room was a little tired and also we had issues with toilet flushing - it did not have enough power and water so it clogged at some point. Every time we had to flush we were concerned it might get clogged again (we would prefer to relax in vacation not getting stressed each time we had to go to toilet).

Crowne Plaza Jordan Dead Sea Resort & Spa, an IHG Hotel

Sweimeh

Good hotel, but a little bit too crowded - especially at breakfast, In 2 days we were not able to get a capuchins at breakfast - we asked but they said they don’t have - for a 5 star hotel I don’t think this is acceptable. Another issue was the beach - it was not well prepared - especially the entrance in the water - based on the layout there is a lot of work which needs to be done to bring the beach at 5 star hotel level.

Tips for future travelers

I suggest to go to another hotel such as Movenpick.

Petra Marriott Hotel

Wadi Musa

Fantastic location, excellent breakfast (including very good cappuccino which was not available at Crowne Plaza on Dead Sea) - the best hotel on Petra area even if it is not close to the Petra site - you can see a magical sunset from hotel’s backyard or terrace.

Tips for future travelers

Book this hotel if you need to stay overnight in Petra.

Memories Aicha Luxury Camp

Wadi Rum

Luxury in the middle of desert! Very clean even if remote location and high turnout of travellers (most travellers stay 1 night) makes keeping cleanliness difficult. The only suggestion I have is to find a way to provide Internet access (I know it is extremely difficult due to remote location, but maybe a solution can be found.

Tips for future travelers

Book this hotel if you need to syay overnight in Wadi Rum.

Petra
Quality of Experience
Too many beggars - government should not allow them inside Petra site. You have to constantly fend off or hassle with beggars. The site is spectacular, but experience is marred by beggars and dirtiness of certain places - we tried to enter one of the caves carved in the mountain and there was an awful smell of urine.
