The warm welcome from Elias and Tatiana, the unique location and atmosphere, the breakfast. It's right up there with the best places we've ever stayed.
A minor point - we were there in July so it was hot - we did struggle a bit because there was no air conditioning in the seating area. It was fine though in our rooms and in the dining room.
Nice facilities, the hostess was very friendly and helpful and gave us a quick tour. It's inside the Baptism site so you have access to the river Jordan to swim (only during the day!) and to see the historic sites.
We were there the same say as the Pope so we couldn't check in until after 9pm. It's a little far from anything else. Not many people were awake in the morning. We had to find someone to check us out.
Elias and the Russian pilgrims have a coordinated approach meant to deliver a true experience of the baptism site according to Russian Church that is a direct descendant of the original Byzantine Orthodox church. The site is solidly built to quality Russian specs. The breakfast and dinner experiences are almost a fantasy world of Russian-dressed staff serving their flavors using local ingredients in a manner designed to open the guest's appetite. The price value for the experience is very favorable. Nam s mujem ochen ponravilos eto mesto, priroda, arhitektura zdaniya sozdayut oshushenie kak budto ti v Rossii. Zavtrak i ujin bili fantasticheskimi. Vsem rekomenduyu ostanovit v etom meste, tak kak eto idealnoe mesto dlya semey s detmi i dlya par
Enjoyed the breathtaking atmosphere of the holy places. The staff is friendly, sincere and merciful. A perfect site to begin your connaisance with wonderful and yet mysterious Jordan.
The place is no good for those who don't rent cars. The taxis are extremely expensive (up to 50 American dollars a ride) as the hotel is located in the middle of a desert. Unless you come with the religious purposes only it is going to be really pricy for you to travel around.
Friendly and supportive personal, good food, neat and clean. Facilities are good and comfortable.
Internet access was limited due to low quality signal.
Wonderful location at the Jordan River.
Lack of service when luggage has to be transported to the room.
The location itself is something amazing. It is just in front of the river Jordan and the Baptism site. Excellent place for peaceful stay and meditation. There are several monasteries around. Personnel was very friendly, food was great and abundant. Hotel can organise for you a guided tour around. Places to see in walking distance: Jesus Baptism site, cave of John the Baptist, cave of Elijah, several churches.
All was very good
The residence was perfect. The breakfast and dinner were excellent and very well priced. The staff was wonderful. The wifi was faster than my high speed internet at home. And the location is simply the best.
If you want to stay a night at Bethany Beyond Jordan this is it but you need your own transport. Is fairly new.
Attentive manageress, unusual but beautiful location on bank of River Jordan
No mention of the JD12 per person site entrance fee on the website at time of booking, difficult to find, evening meal perfectly edible but not great value at JD11 per person
The peaceful, serene environment. Excellent Staff (Julieta and Yazen were friendly and so helpful).
Access to taxis
Stunning building next to the Jordan River. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Food is great. Pasha the cat is sweet. Calm, peaceful, and quiet.
Not that I didn't like it, but be aware that it will be somewhat intensive to get here and, once here, would be easier to stay put for the duration then to leave and come back, especially after 6pm. But don't let that stop you! I'm hoping to head back soon, with my husband.
A perfect place for a meditation trip, to spend Holy holidays and enjoy peace and friendly atmosphere. Wish that only people with these travel aims keep coming here, cause now it's really a magic place
