Environment

Property's Green Action

It is our objective to run our operation as sustainable as ever possible and limit our impact on the environment. In order to become more sustainable, we work together with suppliers and partners to develop smart solutions that reduce the environmental impact. We reduce and optimize our consumption through the use of measures, such as energy efficient lighting, water consumption reduction, waste and chemical management and green projects.

Certifications

Green Globe

Green Globe’s International Standard for Sustainable Tourism is a certification scheme that requires hotels to report on their sustainability performance throughout their supply chains. It traces its roots back to the United Nations Rio de Janeiro Earth Summit in 1992, where 182 Heads of State endorsed the Agenda 21 principles of Sustainable Development. The standards are a collection of over 330 compliance indicators that are applied to 41 individual sustainability criteria - these can be divided into four themes:

• Sustainable Management
• Social/Economic
• Cultural Heritage
• Environmental

Clients can calculate their CO2e footprint, the financial cost of that CO2e, and track their performance of energy and water consumption and non-recyclable waste production. The certification is only awarded to members that have a compliance rating of at least 51%. The award can then only be maintained if members continually improve by 3% every year.

The Green Key

Green Key is an eco-label awarded to around 2,400 hotels and other sites in more than 52 countries worldwide. Achieving the Green Key award requires compliance with a range of criteria, including:

• Comply with legislation and CSR policy within the areas of environment, health, safety and labour
• Prepare an environmental/sustainability policy and action plan
• Train staff on environmental/sustainability issues
• Display information about Green Key and other environmental/sustainability initiatives
• Display information about local transportation and nearby parks/conservation areas
• Implement water saving initiatives in guest rooms, e.g. flow restrictors in taps and showers, smart watering initiatives of the garden, etc.
• Install programme for the reuse of towels and/or sheets in guest rooms
• Separate waste and implementation of waste saving initiatives (including food waste)
• Avoid the use of chemical cleaning products with dangerous compounds
• Safe storage of chemical products
• Stationary and paper are environmentally friendly produced
• Implement energy saving initiatives in guest rooms, e.g. energy efficient light bulbs, standard defined heating/cooling temperature, etc.
• Purchase of food/beverage products that are organic, eco-labelled, fair-trade labelled and/or locally produced
• Avoid chemical pesticides and fertilisers in green areas
• Staff areas fulfil same requirements as guest and public areas
• Encourage cooperation with suppliers and local community on environmental/sustainability matters

I am very happy with the service and hospitality of the hotel in general. The reception staff are always smiling and give you a warm welcome. I also feel very safe because the security is of high level and assist the guests. The restaurant is very clean and tidy and the service is top notch from the manager to the staff. My family and I have spent a really nice holiday in Movenpick Aqaba.

Excellent hotel . Very good for relaxation. Especially liked the work of the hotel team, which any do not tolerate any problems. And if it does, it eliminates it quickly and effectively. It is also worth noting the excellent work of the animators on the beach, which do not give boredom and brighten up the rest.

Special thanks to more than professional staff member in the in front office Alaa, he was so helpful, with wonderful smile and made my stay so comfortable and joyful, in addition that he have excellent skills in controlling the situations and anger of guests. I was alone, but I didn't feel scared or unsafe . The beach was so clean and the staff were so helpful ,the entertainment staff were awesome! Pay more attention to the offer presented to guests, as dinner was little bit bad. Thank you so much, and for sure your hotel will the be the first to think about when I come back to Aqaba.

The staff at reception, in the lobby and at the breakfast room are all going beyond their way to help, and anticipate your needs. At breakfast they brought me the newspaper of the day after they noticed I was reading one the day before. They also offered me an orange juice as they noted there was no juice on my table. All done with a lovely smile. This warm and professional attitude is what will make me choose to stay at this hotel next time I am in Aqaba.

Beautiful and peaceful hotel with good prices, the food is really good, rich buffet for breakfast, very good service, excellent and fast room service. Employees are helpful, please excuse the few extremely fresh young employees who might still getting training (at the beach area). The pools are very clean and enjoyable, the beach is very nice and one of few were there's no music to kill the pleasure of laying down under the palm trees in peace.

Clean room, good breakfast. But lost potential in the middle square area besides outside the breakfast area. They should make parties and such in that area. Also the Jacuzzis need maintenance and should probably be custom made instead of these out of the box ready ones. Other than that, the staff is polite and helpful.

I really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was delicious and huge! Its really central in Aqaba and we walked around in the area during the afternoon. Beach-area is nice and we had great time relaxing there for a couple of days before we head over to Petra for the next adventure :).

We really enjoyed our 3 days stay and we will for sure be back soon. We got a room upgrade and the view was just amazing. we booked 2 rooms and we checked in early at 12 to one of the room, and also were given a late check out at 3 pm ! the beach is so nice and the rooms were clean and relaxing, all employees were friendly and kind. A special thanks to the lady on the reception. She was very friendly and asked us if we need anything and if we had any concerns.

We are quite critical on cleanliness and your hotel is very clean. Super that the hotel has its own beach and also is part of the lively centre of Aqaba. Very friendly and professional personnel everywhere in the hotel and we had a delicious dinner ik the Red Sea Grill restaurant. We also enjoyed the professional band in the courtyard, spacious enough for the kids to play around it. We will for sure come back!

We loved many things about our stay. The accommodations, food, beach. We were disappointed with the front desk staff. When we checked in, they described the pools that our family could use and all but the lap pool were open during our entire stay. I couldn't believe they didn't know what was going on in their own hotel. Then when we asked about local foreseeing, we were directed to the Aqaba castle which is also very closed (under renovation for extended period of time) as well as the Aquarium that was also closed.

Special thanks and appreciation for Ms. Nashahibi, Mr.Fadi and Mr. Jamal Obedat at the front desk, Mr. Rani and Munir at the main hotel restuarant. Many thnx to everyone and keep the good work up.

The service and the room's ammenities were perfect. Also, the breakfast and dinner buffet were delicious. The garden and the path to the beach was very beautiful too. Although I didn't get a sea view room, but the view from my room was good, and I feel fresh air when opening the window. However, I disliked smelling smoke in the lobby and the corridors, it caused me headache and the smell got stuck to my brain even after getting to my room. Also, I think the shower could be made better to prevent water flowing to the bathroom floor.

Compared to other Movenpick hotels in Jordan it was dissapointing and never worth 5 stars (I would say 3 to 4 stars on international standards). Service staff was friendly and the sea-view is great, but that's the minimum I can expect as a guest. Breakfast hall is crowded and chaotic. Beach is too noisy as there are always boats with loud music nearby and not much room to swim. Infrastructure and the rooms are old and not very clean, the bathroom in our suite was too small compared to the room size. But the worst experience was their hair and nails saloon in the Spa area. Nobody there could speak English and the service was very bad. My girlfriend was desperate after their so-called manicure service, the hygiene standards were just horrible and the results not acceptable. A five year old child with a brush could do better work than these employees there. Can't recommend for this price at all.

A large hotel close to central Aqaba, a few pools to choose from plus the sea which has a restaurant and bar nearby. The staff were all friendly and BBQ night was a nice change from the dining room. Bar prices were expensive, however at the back of the hotel was a small off licence which had very reasonable prices that seemed to get lower as the stay got longer. I would happily stay again.

Grandiose reception areas and beautiful gardens count for little when there are so many little failings for the customer. The room had no slippers, no bathrobe and only two very small water bottles (increased to 5 after the first room clean). The bathroom was decidedly small for a hotel of this grade. There was no assistance up the steps from the luggage screening area to the check-in desk. The first afternoon the beach was dirty with cigarette ends, used cotton buds and full ash trays. Compared with the 4-star Marriott on the Dead Sea I had left a few days prior, the allegedly 5-star Movenpick came out very poorly. The buffet breakfasts & dinners were splendid and the restaurant staff very attentive. However, the failings mentioned above are not acceptable when you proclaim your hotel to have 5-star status.

Great hotel and resort. Very friendly staff. We had booked three double rooms and on check in they offered us a two-story villa upgrade looking the sea for free. Staff here was really exceptional in every aspect. Breakfast selection was awesome with lots of varieties. Swimming pools are quite large and clean. Private beach is good. They also offer paid water sports at moderate prices. Definitely recommend.

Stayed there for 3 days, I were in Aqaba for a work. There's a strange delay in services, it tooks 20 min just to deliver beer. After breakfast I went out to smoke, I asked for ashtray 7 times and ended with searching and bringing it by my self. Everything​ else was perfect.

Nice hotel but it seems they were overrun with tourists when we went and it was like a zoo. The breakfast is chaotic with people, and there are ravens flying around, grabbing food, and pooping all over the otherwise nice garden setting. Staff was mostly very genuinely courteous but at the restaurant by the beach you can sit for five or ten minutes without anyone even noticing you or bringing a menu.
