One of the best part of this hotel was the very friendly and helpful staff! After one nigth in the room we first got (with a pool view) we asked to change room (to one with ocean view). This was no problem, and the staff efficiently moved our luggage. This was symptomatic for the rest of our stay; whenever we... More

The Marina Plaza - have a great location in Tala bay. Be aware - Tala bay is really quiet - at least during the winter. Nice pool area - but there is an issue with flies. Ok food (tried buffet for breakfast and dinner - and poolbar for lunch).

Lucky with the weather in early February we had a wonderful week together. First and foremost the wonderful staff made our stay so nice. Tala Bay had only a few restaurants, and they are not cheap. Still value for money was very good. The beach club and the local dive centre are the greatest. Only one night into town, Aqaba,... More

An enjoyable stay at this property. Room was adequate but getting to the point where some updating will be required. We had a nice view out to the Gulf from our small balcony. Swimming pool area was very busy when we visited but was well maintained and fun for my 9 year old son. The beach area is a short... More

Great hotel and definitely worth staying at. Pool was very inviting as was the local beach. Room was very clean and ideal to sit on the balcony. Shuttle buses were very good and breakfast enjoyable. Staff were very good.

Very clean tidy, great breakfast, good location, staff very friendly and we enjoyed our 3 days there. They have a bus that goes into town every day, but the marina where it is situated has places to eat and a few shops.
