Simply the Best!
Such an amazing experience. We will be Kempinski fans for life! They made my husband’s birthday so special. The restaurant we made reservations at in advance was closed for a private event but they let us order off that menu and the chef came down to our table to ensure everything was perfect. They also provided a glass of sparkling wine for the trouble. Our server Saleh was so kind and even sang Happy Birthday. We returned to a chocolate cake in the room! Things got even better the next morning. We met Ivan at breakfast who enquired about our day. Upon finding out we had a 1am flight and planned to tour the baptism site he encouraged us to come back and shower before our flight. We ended up in Amman touring the citadel so I contacted the downtown Amman location to see if they had a shower room as well and they were so welcoming! After a hot day touring around to be able to shower before a 12 hour flight was so kind. I recommend the hotel for its impeccable service.

Just ok
The grounds and rooms are nice enough. The service at the pools is lacking — it took forever to get some water and towels. The hotel is relatively new but starting to show some wear in the rooms and the room wasn’t very clean. I was surprised by absence of a decent coffee maker in the room in comparison to comparable hotels, just instant coffee. Breakfast was simply terrible — stale baked goods, stale cheese, mostly unhealthy fried foods in the hot buffet. I went during some very hot weather and there was insufficient seating in the lobby with air conditioning barely on and no windows — felt dark and dingy. Seating outside is nicer but very few tables for the size of the hotel. The Italian restaurant on the property was very overpriced and the food was low quality. The sea beach is small and the swim area very limited. It’s important to bring good traction water shoes because the hotel doesn’t sell any and just provided communal crocs for everyone to share, which felt unsanitary. Same with buckets of mud that is also shared. There were no decent refreshments — I got half a glass of lukewarm water that was supposed to be lemon water but tasted like nothing. For the heat down there and the climb, it’s quite inconsiderate. At night there was a loud party with loud music till 3am by one of the pools, no consideration for other guests and no real enforcement of quiet after a reasonable hour. Sadly, it’s one of the best hotels in the area.
