Too many men in suits made for a system where no one really goes the extra mile for fear of doing something wrong. The result is customers constantly waiting and having to re-explain over and over and over... Good but expensive, and plenty to work on .Genuine Expedia guest review

"Nydelige lokaler, god service, dårlig frokost"
Helt nydelige lokaler, sentral med gåavstand til sentrum, ypperlig service. Frokosten anbefales ikke. Overraskende dårlig kvalitet på omelettene og andre egg-variantene som står på menyen mens kokken kan tydeligvis ikke lage. Irriterende med dårlig start på dagen på en ellers ypperlig hotell.Genuine Expedia guest review
"아카바의 최고 호텔"
가격만큼 깨끗하고 아름다웠던 호텔, 방에서도 아카바 해변을 쫙 볼수있었고 다만 어린이를 데려가기엔 아쉬웠던 점은 유아풀장은 조금 미흡했습니다. 조식부페는 정말 맛있습니다. 특히 빵종류가 많았고 고급스럽습니다.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Blick vom Bett aufs Meer"
Ein sehr schönes Hotel für einen Erholungsurlaub. Tolle, gut temperierte Außenpools. Superfrühstück und vielseitiges gastronomisches Angebot. Wir haben nichts vermisst und uns rundum wohl gefühlt.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Schönes Zimmer, leider keinen tollen Strand"
Das Hotel ist neu und das Personal äußerst freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Zimmer sind ganz in Weiß und haben einen schönen Meerblick. Einziger Minuspunkt ist der Rel. Kleine Strand und der etwas übervolle PoolGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel parfait !!"
Cet hotel est parfait. Tout neuf, très design, très propre. Accueil irréprochable, chambre impeccable, service attentionné. Rien à redire. Le petit déjeuner est excellent. Les équipements sont très bien (piscine, salle de sport, plage,...). Ce n'est pas un hôtel bon marché, mais il vaut largement son prix.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Characterless instead of authentic"
If you are a couple or family looking for relaxed luxary days in a clean and stylish 5-star western environment with international food then the Aqaba Kempinski is the right place for you. But the architecture of the building is already speaking a clear language. It is describing a quarter of a circle with a fortress-like almost window-less facade and […] high walls against the city. It wants to shield you from the outside. Jordan's welcoming friendliness has almost no place here and is replaced by coolness and artificial smiles. Staff is as international as the food. Unfortunately the mix wants to be exotic but becomes characterless instead of authentic. If you come from Europe as most other guests then you'll even enjoy the rules brought from Kempinksi AG in Germany to the pool area. Pools and the artificial small beach are okay for families with smaller kids for a weekend. Too little shade and too few sun loungers though. If you stay longer you'll probably want to bring your nanny as many other guests do. If you have school kids or rather want to go snorkeling then you'll likely get bored soon. On the other hand if you are on a honey moon you might mind all the kids. If you mind the big freight ships anchoring in the bay, the noisy boat traffic, the phosphate dust cloud over the nearby habour or want to dive/snorkel then you'll probably be better off in Tala Bay anyways. In the city I liked the Mövenpick much more. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Il faut le faire un fois dans sa vie"
Aucunes erreurs, c'est ce qui s'appelle un vrai hotel 5 étoiles. C'est plus cher mais qualitativement c'est pas plus cher que les chambres 3 ou 4 étoiles que l'on vous vend ailleurs. C'est la perfection. C'est un rêve à vivre.Genuine Expedia guest review

Perfect hotel; heerlijke locatie om bij te komen. Fijne service overal, zeer goede kwaliteit eten en drinken. Klein minpunt: Het Paasweekend maakte e.e.a. wat minder prettig, door grote drukte en 'stress' bij personeel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perle ved rødehavet"
Kempinski hotell er absolutt å anbefale. Nydelig, moderne hotell med fantastisk beliggenhet og gode fasiliteter. Hotellets ansatte gjør alt de kan for å tilfredstille gjestene og er meget vennlige og profesjonelle. Frokosten er himmelsk og kan nytes på balkong med utsikt over basseng og havet. Rett og slett utrolig flott hotell.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Kempinski Aqaba - 5 +i alla avseenden"
Vi har rest mycket över hela världen men detta hotell överglänste det mesta. Kempinski var stilrent, väldigt funktionellt och hade all service man kan önska av ett 5-stjärnigt hotell. Personalen, mestadels från Filipinerna, är otroligt proffsig och talar mycket god engelska. Rummet - alla rum är likartade - var väldigt stort, ljust och alla rum har […] rak havsutsikt. Klinkergolv och sköna sängkläder i bomull. Rummen "kvällsbäddas" av personalen. Frukosten var i världsklass. I den matsalen serveras också väldigt fina buffémiddagar (fräscht, nytt hela tiden). Annars finns en lounge som serverar drinkar och mindre rätter, en strandservering för luncherna på dagen samt på kvällen Aqabas finaste restaurang, Fish Inn som serverar lyxmat med betoning på skaldjur. Priserna på maten är nära Sverigepriser men räkna med att dryckerna är dyrare. Inte bara alkohol utan även mineralvatten kostar en hel del. Men rummens minibar med massor av mineralvatten. juice och läsk är gratis och fylls på varje dag! Poolområdet var ytterst välhållet och lyxigt byggt. När vi besökte hotellet i mars var det halvbelagt men jag skulle tro att det är lugnt och stillsamt även vid högsäsong. Detta är ett hotell som drar till sig lugna gäster. Trots att vi har barn och hon fann några kompisar i barnpoolen så är området så välbyggt och lugnt att alla fick ut det bästa av vistelsen. Till den privata stranden med fint, klart vatten, fraktar hotellet ny, vit sand med jämna mellanrum. Fin hotell- och strandservice med stora, fina badlakan, solsängar samt "solhus" med stora medrasser i sanden, duschar och flera serveringar i anslutning. Vid stranden finns också ett lekrum med massor av aktiviteter samt två datorer för de yngsta gästerna - lekrummet kan överses från stranden, vilket passade oss med en fyraåring bra. Det enda negativa skulle vara kontrasten mellan hotellets höga klass och Aqaba i övrigt som inte hade så mycket att erbjuda, tycker vi. Men det var spännande att komma till ett nytt land med så dra Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"An extraordinary experience"
16/11/2014 zja02 Amman
I have been to 34 countries, and have experienced staying in various hotels and hotel chains. As such, I can honestly say this: If you want to be pampered and be treated like royalty, then this hotel is the place to be. I would recommend that you meet Chef Mahmoud Hijab - a truly unique character, whose passion for food and for satisfying the guest is absolutely inspirational. If you happen to dine at the Fish Inn, I would suggest that you strike up a conversation with Cristoph and Quirin - lovely people with a lovely sense of humor - a pleasure to talk to! Though the Black Pearl (the hotel's club) did not have any guests when we were there (on a Friday night), Mohammad, the Bar Tender, went out of his way to amuse us with a fantastic display of a flaming Lamborghini, and Ahmad, the DJ, gave us a copy of the music he played since we enjoyed it so much Yazan Shaqman was the Manager on Duty that Friday, and he kept on passing by our table at the Fish Inn to strike up a small conversation with us and to ensure that all was well The only negative remark I have - which is not within the hotel's hands unfortunately - is regarding the glass boats that keep passing by the hotel and playing very loud and noisy music - their presence at the jetty could also be discomforting for some guests In all honesty, this is the first time I feel sad leaving a hotel - I usually look forward to going back to my own home... but this hotel is truly different because of its employees Z,
"Still The No.1 Hotel in Aqaba"
08/11/2014 AnxiousAmman Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
This is my second visit to this hotel. The first was in Mar 2011. And in both visits I stayed in the same suite # 501. I will divide my review into two parts: the pros and cons: The Pros: - Elite hotel with well trained smiley staff. - Excellent quality of food. - Great location - Modern hotel. - Excellent sandy beach (which many five stars hotels lack this sandy beach). - Huge rooms/suites. - and much more. The Cons: - There are supposed to be more varieties in breakfast buffet given the money paid. - The shower was not working well so we had to call the room service (which served us on the spot). - The coffee machine was not working properly and also we had to call the room service to fix it ( and they did immediately). - The coffee cups were so dirty! ( yes really dirty) and we had also to call the room service to change them. The manager came and apologized. - I forgot $ 3 on the room's couch in the evening and went out and so when I came back to the room I found that the room is cleaned and the money is stolen!!! - We had to call the room service to get bathrobes for the kids given they are already aware we are staying with our kids. - The fruits plate in the room which is supposed to be refilled every evening was never refilled only given that we talked to the manager in charge (Mr. Fadi Salameh) about this issue! In summary, in a top tier five stars hotel like kempinski red sea such many of the above "cons" shouldn't happen and the quality of the service and the preventive controls have to be rechecked!

"Good facilities, avarage food."
06/11/2014 UmmEray Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Rooms Hotel is relatively new and is very contemporary. Standard rooms are very spacious. Good size bathroom however, there is a large window opening the bathroom to guest room. Unless you climb over the bathtub to reach the privacy blind's cord before you use to WC, you are completely exposed. It is odd that in an open bathroom layout they didn't think about putting a door to WC. Rooms have balconies that are large and over looking the bay. Only wired internet is free in the rooms. Restaurants 3 meal restaurants has a nice terrace. We found the breakfast very average for the amount of money they are charging. In Intercontinental which is an older hotel next door, cheaper breakfast gets you a lot more variety hence it’s an old hotel. I ordered lasagna from rooms service one night as I was too tired to go down to restaurant. It was thinnest lasagna I ever seen floating in what seemed like very watery version of béchamel sauce and acidic tomato sauce. Very very disappointing. There is a bar overlooking the beach. Excellent for sun downer drinks. The night I was there was live music as well. I didn't have a chance to try beach facilities but beach area looked very nice. Service was okay. Staff is polite and well-intended. But they need to fix the quality of food in the hotel.

I stay in a lot of hotels all around the world and this is right up there on the top of my list. It is just stunning. The floor to ceiling glass gives maximum view out to the breathtaking red sea and the balconies provide a wonderful place to sit and watch the stunning view. The beds are super comfortable, the bathrooms just gorgeous and the service impeccable. The breakfast buffet was great - lots of choices and cuisines available and a bonus to be able to sit outside on the terrace above the beach. Highly recommended for a stunning luxurious stay in Aqaba.
"Amazingly friendly staff"

Amazing staff at this new modern hotel. Ideally located on the Red Sea and short stroll to down town Aqaba. Perfect location for beach and near by Petra (4hrs) and Wadi Rum (2hrs). Great breakfast buffet. Actually the food in general at the hotel was good. Nice mix of international and local cuisine.
"Impressive in Every Way"
04/11/2014 Davybert New York City, New York
As a luxury travel writer for world-adventurer.com I've stayed in many 5 star hotels but the Kempinski Hotel Aqaba topped my expectations in every way. In short, if you are looking for the best property in Aqaba, this is it. The rooms and suites all have great sea views (some with terraces) and are very luxurious. The property has everything you can desire from beach, pool, gym, spa, and several in house restaurants and bars. Finally, the service was amazing from check-in to check-out. Very few properties focus on how a guests feels and I found the Kempinski to do exactly that. They try to anticipate what you may need and suggest it to you. There is truly no better option, not only in Aqaba but almost all of Jordan! As one of my favorite hotels of 2014, definitely book your stay here. You won't regret it.
