Are room was overlooking the beach and it was a good size room. There are a number of different pools to choose from with the beach just a stroll away. Drinks are expensive, free wi-fi in rooms and around the hotel. If you require a taxi i would walk out of the hotel and flag one down as it will save you a lot of money each time. You can book a taxi from the hotel which on average costs about £10 more than a local one into Aqaba. The hotel is a 10 minute taxi journey from central Aqaba. It was a short stay but pleasant, i can not comment on food as of the length of time i stayed.

Best beach resort in Jordan, too many things to do while staying at Radisson SAS Blu. The most attractive beach and pools in the area, good variety of restaurants and many things to do while staying.
Very good reputation, I heard about it from too many friends who tried it earlier and I will attach some nice pictures I took from there when I have time.

Sometimes reading other reviews is miss leading, Just came back from Aqaba and Radisson Blu Tala Bay Resort, I have to say it is the best.
Very good impression on arrival, welcome drink, cold towels and valet parking, softs drinks and mineral water are available in the room free of charge plus tea & coffee.
I booked two rooms and got one upgraded to deluxe room since only one standard room was available when we arrived.
The deluxe room even got a Nesspreso machine and sofa, both rooms got very nice view on the red sea.
One of the 5 pools is heated but it is possible to swim in all pools, the temprture was around 30 to 35 and Aqaba usually got sunny weather during the whole year.
Very nice and reach breakfast buffet, it is included in the room rate and wireless internet is available by the way for free.
I liked Heatwave it is restaurant on the beach serving fine asian food with couple singers performing in English & Arabic as well.
Another place worth mentioning is the Sunset Deck, it is just few steps from the Front Desk with amazing sea view, oriental light music palyer is there in the evening.
Me & my wife tried the beach massage and it is really done by professional therapist, very good for the body & stress release.
We also took a boat trip organized by the resort and enjoy it very much, it is called Sunset cruise.
Excellent service minded employees and I for sure we will repeat the visit again.

The hotel is nice, and it huge with many pools , the pools are well organized and Managed , the rooms are good but not different than any other hotel plu The food is very good.

What was disapointing is the check in and out from the hotel ! i had to wait long time to check it and we had to leave early to avoide the queue in the check out desk. on the other side i booked a superior room, not a standard and i had to ask for all the granted services i must have , such as a bathroob !!!

i paid much and i did not get what i should get.

Staying at the Radisson right now and getting anoyed at staff who lack basic english skills (can't take simple beverage orders without having to call on a colleague, not to mention the people handling the room service resulting in a hamburger delivery after 45 minutes having first delivering wrong food). I could go on and on. Top it off with a three day Harley Davidson convention with a couple of hundred bikers, a big stage in front of our rooms and a message on our tv saying it will be noisy until 1.00 am...
