What an amazing hotel, staff is always ready to help, give advise, always very friendly. The kitchen is great!!! Very good buffet, fresh and delicious food. The rooms very clean and the bathrooms large, cleaning staff always surprising with art on the bed made of towels. Nice pool, beach at walking distance (5min). There's a free shuttle bus bringing you... More

At the end of May we spent one week in this hotel. It is located in a neat and tidy area and the beach looks beautiful. The breakfast and the dinner could fit anybody’s needs and we found our room perfect. Hotel staff is nice, friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our holiday very much.

For the price we paid, we could have stayed at the other Tala Bay hotels. But we thought to give this one a chance. Bad idea. The room is very kitsch, cheap, and blankets/bed flimsy. The TV is an old box, I guess I am used to flat screens and not static televisions. To get to the beach you must... More

We were only there for 1 night and had a comfortable room in a nice area by the marina. A walk to the beach but the pool is nice. Friendly staff but meal times are very busy and they are a bit overrun. Try to avoid peak times! Lots of choice and the food was very good.

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
