Lovely hotel setting. Out of town but has a shuttle. Rooms OK, but as with many others, has a thick bed cover, no upper sheet. A really silly idea in such a hot climate, requiring the air conditioning on all night!
Calling it a beach is a big misnomer, you can't really get into the water as there are large rocks and coral. I was subsequently told the larger hotels in town have an actual beach with sand.
Breakfast plentiful but strange combinations and presentation.They also do not seem to think sometimes people like milk with their coffee.
Swimming pool was lovely.

What a scene it all was ..the many groups of tourists on the pathways and hillsides....and the whole area from the entrance to the arch gate at the end was much bigger than I imagined. It took a couple of hours to walk to the end of main road ...but only allowed for short hikes up the canyon sides - to the tombs and temples. There was much left unexplored - but given the walk in was all downhill - ...
... guy came up to us asking for some of Orna's thread to thread his face. Well despite the strange request he was a great guy and we stuck around with him for a bit; his friend gave us a discount scuba diving and good places to go for certain things. One night we bought some fresh fish and he took it to a restaurant where they cooked it and gave us an array of sides and dips which we devoured on a park table until late, talking about 101 things.
... tight, so we sent Chris to squeeze between the holding container where our bags were being held. Since the squeeze was too tight to get our bags out, Elizabeth climbed underneath a semi truck and pulled the bags underneath to us. Once we had all our bags we were guided again to meet our new Jordanian tour guide, Zuhair. He lead us through the process of getting our Jordan visas and our passports stamped. Once again we were organized and taken to our very ...
