With the beach a 5 minute walk from the hotel (a private beach, part of the resort complex) and several pools on the hotel premises, Marina Plaza was a great weekend getaway from Amman. The breakfast buffet was great (omelette bar!) and mixed Western and Jordanian foods. And there is a free shuttle into and from Aqaba city center, which... More

We stayed at Marina Plaza at february 2014. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast buffet was really really good, lots to choose from. Only 5 minute walk to the beach. They could update the rooms to 21st century.

I like this hotel, nice pools with parking facilities. Employees willing to help always and smiling. They also organize water aerobics for guests. The food is excellent, good selection plus prices are affordable.

After driving 350 Kms from Amman we reached the hotel at 8pm only to be greeted by unprofessional and rude staff at the reception who refused to let us check in even after showing them the receipt, acknowledgement...

Average. Rooms reasonably clean. Too much of a "party-mode" hotel - not if you're looking for tranquility & relaxation. Music pounds all day & until late at night / early morning. Keeping in a similar light, breakfast is also a "market-place" experience. All lounges are smoking-lounges - no non-smoking areas to sit in.

We stayed for one night recently. Although it was a standard double, the room was spacious and airy. Having lived by the beach in Australia, were not there for the beach experience but to chill. It was very pleasant sitting by the pool and watching the passing parade. The wifi was strong and consistent and TV was good. The staff... More

Jordanians are really friendly and the staff at Marina Plaza were no exception! Every time we asked for something at the reception we got help immediately. The breakfast was nice and one time we ordered food, which was brought to our room, and it was nice and cheap. We never tried the evening buffet though.

I travelled with 2 children aged 6 and 9. The hotel was a great based from which to explore Petra. The hotel was clean, the pools beautiful and the food varied enough choise to suit most tastes. The hotel pools were set in an oasis of parm trees. Most staff were friendly, with the occasional waitress being somewhat miserable -... More
