When we arrived (about 4pm) there was a long queue at reception. Our room was not ready, even though we arrived 1 hour after check in began. So we went to the bar for 30 minutes to wait and bought a beer each (for 7.65JD per beer!!!!!) Then we went back to reception and even though our reservation email told... More

It was quite disappointing experience staying in this hotel. I stayed for two nights along with my family but it wasn't a good experience at all. Firstly it took me around one and a half hours to check in as the staff at the reception counter was very slow and non-cooperative. I had twin rooms and TV in one of... More

Spent two nights on half board basis. The hotel location is good, inside Tala bay and you get access to all Tala Bay beaches. The food is average, but they have a good breakfast selection and the dinner Buffet was not bad. This was a good value for money option, especially for a diving trip.

The air conditioning worked well and the beach was really nice. Those are the only 2 positives of our stay. The other reviews are correct that this is popular with Eastern Europeans - which is fine. The rooms are old and very small and everything is very out dated. The food was not good.
