me, wife and my 4 years daughter stayed 2 nights, i booked Superior room and got free upgrade to Superior Family Room, the room was so clean with charming view, the service was beyond any previous experience, super nice professional people, and everything else was perfect; as the high pressure shower, the breakfast, the kids area ,the pools area, the concierge lady, the 2010 jet skies, and the free parking

I absolutely loved this hotel. At first I was hesitant to book it as our holiday budget wasn't that big, but it was worth every penny. You are greeted by iced tea on check in and you instantly relax in the hotel's beautiful and tranquil surroundings. The service from the staff was incredible and other hotels staff could really learn how to treat customers from them. Breakfast was lovely as was the buffet dinner which we had one night. After the buffet a very polite member of staff asked for our feedback which impressed us. Our room was absolutely gorgeous. I loved the interior decor and the balcony and the fact that the drinks in the minibar were included in the price was great. I can't compliment or recommend this hotel highly enough. It's outside of Petra centre but Moevenpick run a free shuttle bus to and from the other Moevenpick in the centre. Stay at Moevenpick Tala Bay, I can't see how you could regret it.

We stayed in a family room. The hotel is all new and extremely well maintained. The food was great, with very nice selection. Pools are a lot of fun. Special area for small kids (tho is costs a little - 3 dinars/day).
The service was the best I ever experienced. the staff is very helpful (almost too helpful, if thats possible). At one time I was looking for a beach towel. I asked someone, and he just ran off, brought me towels, insisted on spreading them on the chairs for me (and also took them back when we were ready to leave back to the room).

The only thing I didnt like was that the beach is a bit rocky, which makes access for the kids a little difficult (adults can just walk on the jetty and jump right into the deep blue waters of the red sea).

Sunsets from the Jordan (west) side of the red sea are spectacular, and make you understand why its called "the red sea".. the red sky reflects in the water and make a scene to remember.

This is the first time I actually write a review in TripAdvisor, and that's just because we had such a great time

If there is one thing we value in a hotel it is a clean room, great shower, comfortable bed and luxury bedding. Actually that's four things we really need. Our room had all this and more. Hotel executive Lourdes Coutino and her team could not have taken greater care to ensure that everything was maintained to the highest standards. How anyone can achieve such incredible standards on the edge of a desert is beyond me. Every member of staff was also unfailingly charming and helpful. Many congratulations.

I m a Jordanian , have went down to Aqaba several times in my life , tried and stayed in most of the 5 star hotels there , ..but it was the first time that i stay in the new movenpick ( Tala-bay ) , honestly , this might be the best hotel not only in aqaba , but in the whole of Jordan , .... its clean , nicely decorated , spacious rooms , excellent service , food is good too , perfect location , friendly staff .... etc ........ hats off ( chapeau ) movenpick -Tala Bay ,
the only drawback is the SPA ( which is a totally independant entity from the hotel ) its ridiculousely expensive

I've chosen this resort based on its rating on tripadvisor and it was a great vacation
we arrived around 3:30 pm and the check -in was fast for our 4 rooms and welcome drinks were offered at the front desk

The regular rooms space are more than enough but the family rooms are kinda small
the rooms were clean and the daily cleaning was good and even if you ask for it at 11pm they'll be there

The free mini bar was a good idea and the also the coffee/tea making tray but as a suggestion for the hotel i think 2 of everything should be there because its a 2 beds room

The main restaurant is good with great varieties for the breakfast but not that much for dinner but the food is delicious, and we didn't have the chance to try the Italian restaurant because it was fully booked for 2 days

the pools are nice and clean but one thing i didn't like is that all the pools are 1.6m in depth except the one in the kids club which is irritating if you have kids and you want to enjoy the time with them

We went scuba diving and jet skiing and tried the tubes and we liked every part of the water sports where the crew were extra friendly like everywhere in the hotel

The resort is 15 min far from the city and we had our cars with us but you wouldn't need going there more than once just to see the city and maybe for a dinner

The arguila lounge is a great place to spend the night with the singer and the belly dancing show(who didn't know a lot of moves) but the singer is great with a great voice but it closes at 1am and for a vacation i want to stay up late

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS THE CREW , they're always smiling and trying to help if anything goes wrong a fast sorry with a smile is the first thing you'll hear. this resort has the most friendly crew in Jordan starting with the security at the gates to the front desk to the rooms service and the life guards and the workers around the pools and this what makes it a SPECIAL place to stay

as a feedback to my vacation to Moevenpick Tala bay, i would say its's a once in a life time experience, the location the atmosphere specially at night where you feel like you are in whole another place specially when you stand in front of the sea and hear the music come from the restaurant behind you where there be an enjoyable evening you can attend , and the friendly and joyful employee who let you feel like you are home and even better.
the Food? i only can say it's mouthwatering, the rooms it's absolute relaxation.
and, i don't want to forget to mention the water sports that you can practice there.
MoevePick Tala Bay is your own designed sanctuary .
