  • Went to the Blue Ocean restaurant inside and it was very nice. Opted for the open air which gave me a view of the sea and sunset as I enjoyed my early dinner. Food choices are plenty and not only seafood. Price is also acceptable and comparable to other restaurants.
  • Excellent recreation for kids. They will find it enjoyable to have seen the various kind of fish. The beach section outside of aquarium is worth visit to have some ice creams and shakes. Nice ambiance with sea side with air conditioning to beat the humidity by sea side. Prices are way expensive by the way. But worth it once in a while.
  • تنظيم جميل، أسعار مناسبة. وعلى قد الزحمة لكن ما حسيت فيها🙂 good organizing and prices. it's right that the place is usually crowded. but I didn't feel it. everything was easy and fast👌
  • Excellent place to visit. You will enjoy to see many beautiful and amazing types of fishes including sharks. You can enjoy dolphin show as well.

Where to stay in Jeddah

A major pilgrimage and commercial site with large numbers of visitors year-round, Jeddah offers a wide range of accommodations, ranging from low-budget to super deluxe. Hotels spread primarily along the north part of the town port, with another large cluster found in Mecca. Beachfront establishments can be found predominantly in Atallah Happy Land Park in the north, and in Al Hamra’a next to the port, while budget hotels are scattered around Al Faisaliyah. You can find most major international chain hotels throughout the city. Outside Hajj season, accommodation in Jeddah is generally cheaper than that in Riyadh.
