Grounds while not at the beach are ok. Beach club is good. Beach is not nice but is the case for most hotels in Aqaba. Room is basic but ok. Bedding fabrics need urgent improvement. Real problem is restaurant. There seems to be nobody who is in charge. Restaurant has the look and feel of a retirement home. People work... More

NO WAY!!! I would not come here again. Tala bay itself is expensive, pretentious and offers little. The beach isn't great, there's not much to do, and everything is expensive to the point of a rip-off. The hotel itself is not well run. Breakfast is chaos, the other food at the pool is overpriced and very poor. The AC is... More

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
