Darna Village Beach Hostel

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

We welcome divers and non-divers alike!

'Darna' means 'our home' in Arabic and we strive to make our guests feel at home while staying with us.

Our hostel and dive centre is located right on the beach, only 50 meters from the Red Sea and its spectacular coral reefs.

We cater for individuals, groups, families, divers and everyone who wishes to chill out on the beach and wash off the dust of Wadi Rum and Petra.

All our rooms are air-conditioned and have a private ensuite bathroom. Most rooms are two-bedded (twin or double) but we have single and triple rooms as well. An extra bed or mattress can be added to most rooms. Our rates include breakfast.

Shared accommodation is also available in six-bed dorm rooms.

We offer campgrounds for RVers and those who wish to pitch their own tents. The default category 'Private Tent' means you pitch your own tent. We provide the campground only, with a common shower and toilet. Breakfast is included in the price.

Our restaurant specialises in fresh fish and seafood but we also offer large selection of chicken meals, salads and refreshments.

A sweet water swimming pool of 7x14m is also available for our guests to use free of charge.

Dive courses and individual dives as well as snorkelling trips are readily available at our dive centre.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Good location opposite beach with fine off beach fringe reef for snorkelling. Hotel rooms and buildings in reasonable condition with a good sized swimming pool. Best hotel breakfasts I'd had anywhere in Jordan.
Problem was the staff. There were a couple of good ones, which I won't name for fear of reprisals from the others. Otherwise they were uninterested and obviously under the belief that the hotel would operate much better without guests. The problem was compounded by a misanthropic manager who's personality made Basil Fawlty appear stable.
Potentially great hotel, badly managed. Try the places just up the hill which were run by happy people.
