Lovely hotel, very nice staff, spacious rooms. Beautiful beach. Enjoyed very much the peacefulness of the place. The food in the restaurants is OK but very expensive compared to the prices in town. Breakfast - big variety but I would have appreciated more healthy and good quality products. Very helpful and nice at the front desk.

I stayed here with my four girls (ages 9,10,12 and 15). We enjoyed a relaxing day and a half in paradise. The meals were delicious, the staff very friendly, the rooms clean and comfortable. The view from our balcony was superb. Wifi is available even on the beach! This is definitely a 5 star experience.

As usual, great stay at Kempinski Aqaba. Usually I stay in this comfortable hotel while I've a business trip. I love so much the architect design of the hotel( of course as I'm a civil engineer, admire the civil engineering which made it real and the most admirable modern and contemporary building in Aqaba.

Top modern hotel in Aqaba but a little "sterile". Close to the city center and with its own beach. Unbelieveble friendly and professional staff. Good kitchen but the breakfast could have more variations from day to day. The "worst" - no newspapers but you could use an app for most well known papers.

Untrained staff and management. Management are not able to deal with problems. I do not believe this a Kempinski standard! As a 5-star hotel you'd expect a treatment of guests as their first priority, but not in this Kempinski. My wife and our friends visited and took 3 rooms. We were there for a diving trip for 2 nights. I...

Our experience at this hotel was mixed. It took a long time for us to get to our room, this may have been the hotel or a mix up with our guides. When we finally got to the room, it took 45 minutes, a phone call and eventually going to reception before we got our luggage. We were very impressed...
