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

Swimming pools were crowded and loud from early morning. Better destination for families with children than for couples looking for quiet place to enjoy sun. Room ok, nothing special, clean. Breakfast ok. Walking distance to the beach (5-10 min).

The hotel is located in about 10 minutes walk from the beach and has some rooms with sea view. We stayed in one of the rooms on the top floor, with a narrow view of the sea over the very beautifully designed Tala Bay. The hotel is designed with rooms surrounding the central swimming pools, bars and restaurant, which on... More

The hotel is nice, includes good facilities for a summer holiday. The personnel still have to understand that they run an aspiring to high class hotel or the place will rest at the level of an Arabian holiday resort. The resources recommend the hotel for a 4 star accommodation. The rooms are nice and clean, the public areas well designed... More

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.
