The location is South Beach, Aqaba, just minutes from the major dive sites. Staff were welcoming, positive and friendly. I particularly liked the hot, sweet tea offered at the end of every dive. The rooms are spacious and clean. The food on offer in their small restaurant is freshly prepared and tasty. I could see that the dive equipment at this centre is professionally maintained and safe - I was never cold in their 5mm wetsuit and the reg & BCD were fine. The instructors are very experienced and uber-helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Slow wi-fi. Long way to shops, but you can easily take a taxi for around 6 jod. A shame that there isnt a foodshop around.
Great staff, good food, nice area around the pool. Good divingvexperience.

They do not have a private beach and you can choose to go to the public one (which can be annoying for women) or to go to Berenice Beach Club (with whom they have an agreement) by paying 10 JD, but you can't bring water or food inside so that they can get some more money from you: unfair!
Friendly and helpful staff. Bedroom and bathroom were clean and comforteable. The place is peaceful and there is a small restaurant with fair prices. Very good for your first diving!

Very good diving center, good localisation, competent and very friendly staff.

The larger pool didn't look clean enough to swim in though it may only be intended for divers.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice decor. Relaxed place to stay. Quiet being away from the road. Being offered lifts to the beach and back, though it's not far to walk.

We wanted to take the sunset cruise and mentioned this to the receptionist when we arrived. He said he would look into it. The following morning, when we asked if we could take the cruise, he told us we should've let him know by 8am (it was 9am) because they've already sent the roster to the navy.
The rooms were exceptionally clean! There was cable TV as well as a fridge. The breakfast was good and the beach was only a 15-minute walk. Beautiful view of the Red Sea from the hotel.

Pool was not clean
Value for Money Clean Staff was very supportive

This is a diving destination not a beach resort, as the beach is not very beautiful but the reef makes up for the beach.
The staff were very helpful, this is a diving destination, well equipped to allow you to easily dive very nearby. We arrived and were asked immediately when and how often we would like to dive. We were slotted in with a group of similar level divers. The dive sites are very close and the dive masters very professional and attentive. Although it was windy we had great visibility and saw lots of beautiful reef fish. The diving was easy and very rewarding. We also did some snorkeling , which was in easy walking distance at the beach. The reef is very easily reached from the beach and has plenty of beautiful corals and reef fish. We hired snorkeling equipment from the reception. If you want to dive and snorkel this is the place to stay!

A few steps up and down but not really a bother.
We felt at home. Staff really looked after us in the room and on the dive. Sweet.

They don't seem to clean the rooms until you leave, which wasn't a problem as we didn't need anything anyway. I'm certain they would if you simply asked--they seem really willing to make guests comfortable. Note that wi-fi works OK in the common areas but not in the rooms.
If you want to stay at a place that is central to all the good dive sites in Aqaba, then International Arab Divers is your place. It's located right in the middle of the south beach dive sites, just a few minutes' walk from the beach. You can walk down the hill and straight into the water for amazing reefs and fish if you want to snorkel, and if you dive, they drive you right to the site. And if you feel like lazing by the pool, theirs is deep and cool. The staff are all super friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable, and between them they have tons of diving/instructing experience--good for both experienced divers and newbies. I loved that they could recommend/describe each dive site so I could choose. The accommodations were simple and very clean. AC was great, food was simple but good, and wi-fi works OK in the common areas. If you choose this place, just know that it is in south beach, which is about 15 minutes' drive from downtown Aqaba. We had a car, so it was no problem to go into Aqaba for the evening and then return to our quiet hotel for the night. If you don't have a car, you can catch a taxi into Aqaba.

No/ low water pressure a few days. Too far out to walk to the beach for us. No shops or places to buy food or drink nearby, had to get taxis to get anything. Meals were comparatively expensive. Exchange rate on final bill was very poor (recommend you pay with JOD).
Rooms/ bathrooms/ mattresses were clean. We asked for help organising days out and these were good and well priced. Location was quiet. Air con and pool were good. Staff were friendly and helpful. Drinks and ice-creams weren't too expensive.

The location isn't the best: quite far from the beach and no shops nearby. On the other hand, they made up for it by giving us lifts. Their restaurant has only very limited choices (though good) and the only other restaurants nearby are in other hotels, so you have to take a cab quite a long way into Aqaba city.
The staff of the hotel and the dive staff were incredibly kind and friendly and accommodating.

I didn't like the WiFi, to weak, it doesn't reach the rooms which is a bummer, but not a deal brake because everything else covers for this.
They give you a room and let you live your life. Away from the glamor of hotels but yet under their care and attention. You feel like they're your friends not employees who have to be nice to you just because their boss says so.

snorkling gear rental is expensive
this is where u get to meet other travellers from across the world. the atmosphere is quite laid back and u feel at home. Friendly staff, and the location is next to the beach with corals. you could snorkel right at the beach.

The food could be a little more varied. I would not say that I did not like, but it is rather a suggestion: a broader array of dive sites would be of benefit for the people spending more than one week in the resort.
Excellent, very nice and very helpful staff both for diving activities and for the hotel. They will arrange anything you need for you; no need to worry about anything. Excellent dive sites from the shore. We did not do boat diving so I cannot comment on that.

The place is really only ONLY for divers. The hotel is not bad, it simply isn't a hotel, it's a diving center, and the price should reflect it. We paid 300 euros for 3 ppl for 4 nights, any luxury hotel in Aqaba would be cheaper or equivalent in price. Yet for that money you get few or no services. The breakfast is meager. You better enjoy salad and humus or you are in trouble. The rooms were never cleaned, not once in 4 days. They provided a soap in one of the rooms, not in the other, no shampoo, etc. They give you one roll of toilet paper and you have to keep asking for new ones. The air conditioning was broken and would start blowing hot air in the middle of the night. The hotel is good when you need to relax, and if few guests are there. Our first few days it was just 7 of us, and the other guests made our stay there enjoyable, not the staff. On the last day the hotel got crowded and even that peaceful feeling of relaxation just vanished. We would have appreciated our stay more if only the price had reflected the quality of the place. Keep in mind that it's a place for divers, and only for divers. Others will be far from everything else. Also be very careful when booking a double or twin room, as they will tell you that this is for one person and not two, and will ake you pay twice the price. It was a very unpleasant surprise when we finally paid on the last day. The staff is quite unpleasant and couldn't care less about the guests. The instructors were all great and they made our stay there much more enjoyable.
For divers it is a great place, laid back, equipped with its own training pool and instructors.

WiFi signal didn't reach room 12. There isn't much in the immediate vicinity (unless you count sand, there's a lot of that).
Very comfortable room with good airconditioning. Good beach diving a short drive away. Great pools.

Hard to find! Away from water and view of beach.
Nice place, very electic style. Food and staff were great. Diving was reasonable, sites including wrecks were incredible, dive master was experienced and professional... Would do it all again.
