"Just what the doctor ordered"
I've known the Kempinski in Aqaba for many years but this was the first time I have had the pleasure of staying there. The check-in process was smooth and effortless - following my online booking someone from the hotel rang me the night before to make sure everything was OK which I thought was a nice touch. And following a hot dusty drive down from Amman it was a real pleasure to be greeted with cold towels. The vast majority of the staff were exemplary in their attenti9on, courtesy and attention, from the car valet on arrival to the concierge staff. The decor of the room was a little stark for my taste but that's a personal thing - I'm sure many other people would love it - the bed was certainly comfortable and the bath luxurious.The only slight blot was the waiter at the Black Pearl - we went with friends to enjoy sheesha and a coffee on the beach. While the sheesha waiter was prompt and attentive, I've had better sheesha but the real let down was the bar service - over half an hour from ordering drinks to receiving them when there weren't any other guests was, I think, somewhat excessive. However, this didn't detract significantly from our enjoyment of the whole weekend - it was a much needed and a much enjoyed break. I would heartily recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.

"Wonderful!"
I went to Kempinski Aqaba after a week of business trip in Jordan and that was exactly what I needed to relax. You get a 5 stars treatment from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. My room had a great view, staff were very helpful and frinfly, and the spa is a must do - I had a Thai massage to die for!

"Hotel mit tollem Design direkt am roten Meer"
Das Hotel hat eine sehr moderne, stylische Architektur (sowohl bezogen auf Lobby, Zimmer und die Poolanlage). Es liegt in optimaler Lage zum Stadtzentrum (10 min zu Fuß) und direkt am roten Meer (mit Privatstrand). Der Service im Hotel war ausgezeichnet (sehr zuvorkommend und persönlich). Ein rundum gelungenes, sehr zu empfehlendes Hotel!

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 .

"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.

"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.
