Stay away
The hotel misrepresents itself as a 5-star property when it’s in fact somewhat of a motel. Loud,overcrowded, small dirty beach, bad food, outdated rooms. My shower was backing up, a/c was difficult to regulate, elevator wasn’t working. Hands down overpriced. Kempinski was cheaper the weekend I went, I very much regret making this choice because I was under the mistaken impression, the beach was nicer.

Chun-Ho, 1-night family trip

2/10 Poor

Run down and poorly managed. The room was tired with a number or hinges and fixtures not properly attached, this and the dented table gave a generally shoddy impression. I’ve stayed in mövenpick hotels before and I’m aware that they tend to be a bit tired but with great service and fantastic food. This is not the case in their Tala Bay branch. For dinner, we had to wait for half an hour to get a table for two, a frustrated manager directed us to a messy table full of leftovers from the previous guests. A member of staff then directed us to a somewhat cleaner table. We were both in shock as to the messy state of the restaurant. It looked more like a McDonald’s during a kid’s birthday party. At 8pm, most of the food was already finished, with kids running freely and the noise level very high. Options for dinner were ‘buttered vegetables’ and hummus that had already formed a crust. No information was given and staff were literally running back and forth and managers yelling at them, with no chance of ordering anything. My partner who is of African descent was repeatedly challenged if she was actually staying in the hotel. For breakfast, her coffee order was ignored by several waiters and managers. Self service offerings were very limited and service appalling. If you enjoy a mix of macdonalds birthday party and kindergarten without management with a hint of racism, then this is the place for you. If not, I recommend you look for something else.

8/10 Very good

A fun and relaxing family vacation, but...
As a family, we were looking for a secluded and relaxing stay so the property location was absolutely spot on for our choice, having situated just off city limits at the beautiful Tala Bay overlooking the mountains. The resort is massive with great amenities catering for all the family, including kids (there is a kids pool, adjoining a nice and well stocked kids play room). The staff on ground (Camila, Tiger, Lydia to name some) are amazing in engaging the kids and even the family. There are 3 pools and equal jacuzzies however 2 of the jacuzzies were broken and the one functioning was adult only so was a huge let down. Another issue was the food choices- we opted for breakfast and dinner with our booking however the menu wasn't really 'multi-cuisine' and vegetarian friendly so most of my family members (who are vegetarians) were left with minimal choice of food. A big thank you to the Indian chef (Pawan) who came to our rescue and was very kind to cook us some nice vegetarian meals throughout our stay. Some other minor things include missing route signs across the property as it is easy for the elderly to get lost or take a longer route than usual to reach places. Overall a big thank you to Movenpick team for a pleasant stay. I would rate it 3.5/5 just because of the food and broken amenities, otherwise definitely recommend a go. Another reason for it being one of only 2 resorts on that secluded route :)

6/10 Good

Hotel is nice and clean, however reception staff lacked to tell us the full potential of the hotel. There is a free transfer to aquba and happy hour which we found out about on the last night. There was mis-communication on if there are any heated pools. Some staff said the north pool is, according to the manager it’s only the kids pool. The pools are all freezing. The buffet seemed to lacked pace, things ran out and took a while to replenish and if you went too early or late not everything was there. The Shezan lunch staff were very good and extremely good with kids and the kids club at the hotel is also very fun, some of the night activities could have lasted a little longer. Overall the hotel would have exceed expectations if things were communicated better.

10/10 Exceptional

the check-in was fast, despite its a late check-in (starts 4 PM which is really late) but they upgraded my room to a better room with a better view, which is great, however, I booked with a half board, and I went for dinner after a couple of hours, the food was cold and with not much of verities, so after we finished I provided feedback about it, just a few minutes after that Chef Mohammad Fathi came to our table to learn more about the feedback, and he apologized and offered to order from the menu but we were done already so he offered anything like ice cream or anything that is not included in the dinner buffet and promised this won't happen again, the next day was much better indeed, the service and the food was much better, he agreed me himself and wanted to make sure am satisfied, once he found I was on diet he offered to make something special for me, it felt I had a special tratement and it was greate, he kept checking on me on every visit, other than that everything was perfect, the room was cleaned really well every day and on time, generally my stay was pleasent and the staff was really freindly and helpful, definitly I recommend it if you're visiting Aqaba except you feel like going out of Tala Bay as its a 20 minutes drive from city center.
