We like the hotel.Its large! there are nice sweeming pools. We love massage! welcome drinks!free internet! houskeeping 5 * ! we like entertaiment in the Heatwave and Sunset Deck,but we expected to see belly dance show also!
We dont like roomservice! we found that the staff of the main restourant was very unpolite.they forgot to bring our drinks.it took so long to get it. i think hotel should work on attitude of the workers. it was busy and mass.food is very spisy.

We stayed here from November 26 to December 3.
Nice hotel with all modern conveniences. Dinner buffet, with very wide and varied choice.
Too bad the meals were lukewarm, but otherwise tasty.
Rooms comfortable. No problem to another room because we get a room
had made on the ground floor and ended up on top.
We also heard that the South Wing is closed for renovation this winter ..
Free Wifi in the room, beach and pool. Also 2 free computers with internet and printer in the lobby.
Beautifully situated right on the beach of Gulf of Aqaba. Few snorkeling at the hotel.
5 swimming pools, one heated, temperature the same as the sea. The rest of the pools quite cold ..
Tala Bay marina nothing special.
Too bad there is little to do in the hotel, no entertainment or similar during our stay.
Fifteen minutes away by shuttle bus to downtown Aqaba. Perfect.
A welcome drink during check-in .. Check out fluently. Staff very friendly.
The last day was quite busy and then everything goes a bit chaotic in the restaurant ..

This is truely a 5 star hotel. We traveled from Egypt to Aqaba via ferry and arrived after 8pm. We immediatly went to the restaurant and had a fantastic meal. This was the best buffet dinner we had on our trip. The variety and quality of the food is outstanding. The service levels are excellent. Our standard room was huge, with a view of the gardens. I could have spent the rest of my trip in the shower! The grounds are lovely, with several pools and outside eating options. I would give this the highest recconmendation.

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.
