Spring Holiday.... Is it 5* - I don't think so....

Harpenden, United Kingdom

Just returned from this hotel after a 7 night stay. On arrival everything looked exceptional and we were warmly welcomed and very excited. Shown to our room - Superior Sea View double - which was very spacious. However, once settled we found it to be very dark - poor lighting - so had to fiddle about with lampshades. Also - mini bar which is free, had 3 soft drinks in it. Also - only coffee mate whitener for coffee/tea. No slippers, no robes only towels - not 5* at all.... The bathroom was tiny in my view and very, very dark. But a nice balcony overlooking sea and pools. Although we did not want it, we had half-board, but I have to say buffet eating is not my thing and I hated it. The food, both at breakfast and evening was always cold by the time we got there and never replenished hot. Plus to me, the restaurant felt/looked more like a "canteen". Hence to say we ate out most nights and even drove up the dead sea Hilton Hotel for a night. We did make use of the Italian restaurant on-site with a 14JOD contribution per person, but still 2 x meals and 1 bottle of wine came to £90+. The hotel has some beautiful pools, but the best ones are freezing cold, and only one heated. The beach looked nice, but very stony to get into the sea. The hotel is a short stroll along the beach to the local marina which has some very nice restaurants/bars which is where we ate. Although at this time of year, it was very quiet, I did enjoy Aqaba but was glad we hired a car for 3 days to get out and about to Petra, Dead Sea etc. The city is a 20min drive away, so be warned, as there is not really a lot to do around the hotel vicinity and drinks are expensive.... I loved Jordan, but felt a bit let down by the quality/services of this so-called 5* hotel. And boy when it rained, the corridors/floors/walkways flooded badly and it was extremely dangerous.
