We had a great time at the Marina Plaza Hotel. I am under the impression that marina plaza isn't the best hotel in Tala Bay, but we sure had a pleasant stay. The staff is extremely helpful and polite. They always seemed to do whatever it took to help. Allthough it was good enough, I wouldn't recommend eating your meals... More

It is a very nice hotel with a big swimming pool at the center of the complex. It is quite near the beach bat far away from Aqaba, so ask for the timetable of the shuttle bus. Unfortunately the dinner and the breakfast buffet are disappointing.

Great location few minutes from lovely beach with great view, rooms are very clean and cheerful, bay view is great rooms for great view. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Food was good and clean. Aqaba is less than 2 hours from Petra and wadi Rum, if you are in Aqaba you must visit these places.

We stayed in this resort hotel for one evening following a trip to Wadi Rum. The rooms were OK - basic but clean and with a balcony with a reasonable view of a roundabout. However, as this is a resort and at some considerable distance from Aqaba town, we chose to go to the on-site restaurant. It was pure carnage!... More

Having read the reviews I was ready to have an open mind about the hotel. Yes, it did seem quite a drive from the city centre but there was a free shuttle bus available. Yes the rooms are a little dated but are fairly big , with air conditioning and a balcony. The hotel is a short walk to the... More

The hotel room was large, clean and with good facilities, including air conditioner/heater. Plenty of toiletries and a fridge. 3 pools with lots of sun loungers. Breakfasts were very good, especially the omelettes. Plenty of choice and catering for different nationality tastes. Could have done with filter coffee, as although the coffee came in a filter jug it tasted like... More

Basically hotel is not comparable to other hotels in Tala Bay. Most of the staff are not welcoming and their behavior range from rudeness to impolite sometimes. Staff on the pool area are the worst. They were shouting at the kids!!! Room facilities are also poor, TV is very old fashion type, no complimentary coffee or tea or even water.... More

Everything was excellent. The staff, the food, the system. The hotel is so big. Our room was clean, quiet, comfortable. And one of the best, in september, the beach was empty. We stayed 7 days, but nobody was there. The bar in the hotel, and on the beach is so good, well-equipped.

Marina plaza is an excellent place to stay if you like beautiful calm surroundings, close distance to the sea, polite and attentive workers, clean room and tasty and fresh food in the hotel restaurant 😊 We wanted a calm holiday, and got excactly what we asked for...Just positive feedback from us here, waiting for checkout tomorrow, heading for hot Norway!:)...
