Lovely environment, however the room numbering was confusing. The restaurant was great, everyone was nice and friendly. Pool was very good and a market and beach nearby which was very convenient! Only downside was that you had to RENT A KETTLE FOR 10JOD

Compared to say, the 4-star Holiday Inn Resort at the Dead Sea, this is a rather short of that. The labyrinthine building surrounds the pools but I saw no lifts to the floors. Thus, if you have difficulty with stairs, you will need to ensure that they put you into the lower rooms. Impression was that the designers were endeavouring... More

I stayed with my family for three nights . It was during Eid holiday . The hotel was fully booked . May be that's why the service was not that much and even during breakfast time you feel that they are not prepared for such a crowed . Inside the room needs a good improvement specially the chairs in the... More

This hotel is tastefully designed with attractive gardens and good amenities. 3 inviting pools of varying size to cater for children as well as adults. The food, mainly buffet style, was excellent, a huge choice every day and with a different theme most evenings. There could perhaps have been a better selection of fruit, but this is nit-picking. 3 of... More

clean and organized hotel, helpful and friendly staff, wonderful views, easy access to the beach, fast reply for requests, and nice & quiet place. Breakfast was very good, prices not bad vs the other hotels.

I stayed at Marina Plaza with my husband for 3 nights in August 2014. It was OK to stay there for 3 nights but I don't think I would like to stay there longer. The service was average, especially I think personell in the bar and the restaurant could be more friendly. The room was OK, quite small though and... More

During Ramadan, when I visited this hotel, I was simply overcome by the sheer magnificence of the place and the peace and quiet, the sparkling pool, the lovely bedroom with a view of the sea, the blossoms, the quality of massages, the delicious food and attention to detail by the staff. The hotel at this time was not fully booked... More

We were a very large group (with kids) and this was a suitable choice for us. Reasonable price. The The beach was not too close but not too far. The breakfast was great. The pools were usually loud and crowded. Free WiFi, decent speed. By the marina, there are a few nice souvenir stores. While I wouldn't mind staying there... More

We went there for a weekend. The hotel was packed with kids. The pools weren't usable as they were full of kids with playing with balls and swimming with inflatables with parents, some fully dressed, with them. The place is so loud and crowded, so it was unusable. We had to walk to Tala Bay beach, were we spent our... More

Average room with tired decor, but clean and spacious. I agree with previous reviewer (AgaDublin) that it is much better suited to families than to couples, as the pools and facilities are overrun with children. The perk for this hotel is the beach pass (free to guests) that provides access to the nearby private beach, marina, beach club, and shower... More
