Number of people: 2
Country: Jordan

Overall level of Satisfaction

 
Tribes Overall: "A fascinating country; Petra was the highlight, but we enjoyed everything."
 
Tribes Service: "The advice we received was spot on; the time spent at each place was about right."
 
Guides: "Excellent"
 
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "Dana guesthouse and Feynan lodge were particularly impressive in terms of helping the community and environment, and Taybet Zaman was good in a slightly different way."

Accommodation

 
Taybet Zaman
I thought we might have made a mistake when we drove away from Petra towards this hotel, but once we got there we were delighted. We were upgraded to a bigger room with a courtyard, and it was very comfortable; after spending the day with the crowds in Petra, it was great to be somewhere so peaceful. The food was good, and the staff helpful. We had two slight niggles: one that they never offered a no smoking area in the restaurant, we had to ask each time, and the second was the poor wifi, though they tried hard to rectify this. We would recommend this hotel for visiting Petra, the short drive was no problem.
 
Movenpick Resort and Spa Dead Sea
We do not usually go for big hotels, but we were impressed by this one. The food was excellent, the staff were well trained and helpful, and the grounds were well designed and well maintained.
 
Feynan Lodge
Helpful staff, good food, pleasant rooms. The guide took us to the old copper mines and an ancient ruined village, which were fascinating. We did the sunset walk, and the local guide pointed out his family's winter home and introduced us to family members we bumped into. It was lovely to see a young boy staying at the lodge make friends with a local boy.
 
Dana Guesthouse
We were lucky enough to be upgraded to the suite, which probably improved our opinion, but we loved this place. Although the accommodation was simple, the staff went out of their way to be helpful and the food was simple but good. We arrived in the dark, and it was amazing to wake up to the spectacular view.
