Myself, I work at our back office in the city, I seldom meet the guests in person.
We are located in the South Beach area, which is a public beach, some 12 kms south of the downtown.
We are only 50 meters from the sea, beach facilities include a playground for kids, a snacks' kiosk, shades, toilet and shower.
Coral reefs along the coast line offer some great snorkeling. Recommended for beginners too, as the sites are easily accessible from the shore.

There is no fixed schedule, the buses run during the day in cca. every 30 minutes.
Bus fare is 0.5 JD per person.
