We left as soon as we possibly could. Awful experience for the price. We were attracted to the hotel mostly for its promised 3* amenities: pool, jacuzzi, sauna. At 65 JD, this was a pricey package by Jordanian standards. Only after we checked in, we discovered the jacuzzi, turkish baths, and sauna are only available for 20 JD PER PERSON FOR ONE HOUR ONLY!!! (BTW, the website recommends 1.5 hours in the turkish bath alone). We visited the pool anyway, discovered it is chillingly cold, and tested the jacuzzi only to find that it too is kept at an icy temperature. The turkish bath staff told us it's never heated. The sauna didn't work, and neither did the hair dryer in the room (I'm pretty sure I wasn't supposed to have paid extra for that, at least!). The breakfast was pretty dismal. The staff was unhelpful and unwilling at best, and made a lot of excuses about some tour group or other. Fled in the early morning for a reasonably-priced hotel down the street. Shocking rip-off.

Top Local Tips for Petra

Movenpick The buffet at the Movenpick hotel right by the entrance to Petra is really good, the guidebooks are right. Not particularly cheap (about 40JD for 2 inc drinks and service) but great salads, hot food, and the puddings were amazing. Really recommend. Open all day. The bar next to the restaurant in the hotel is also a good place to hang out with really lovely decor.

never pay more than 1 JD to travel to/from wadi musa and petra... ...and make the deal before getting in the taxi cab

Petra By Night Visiting the candle-lit, Petra by Night is absolutely worth it! It is only available 3 nights a week so make sure you're there for one of them! The Siq and Treasury are lit by candlelight only and the atmosphere is unforgettable.
