From my arrival to departure, the staff of the Golden Rose hotel made me feel at home. The facilities were very clean and well-kept, wi-fi worked perfectly and it is located right in the downtown area of Aqaba only a few blocks from the beach. It's an ideal place to stay if you are going snorkeling since the guys at the reception will be able to point you to the best spots around Aqaba. I strongly recommend this hotel for travelers both young or older looking for an adventure in the Red Sea and a safe place to stay for less.
I would like to inform other people wjo want to stay in this hotel to be prepared for they picky security checking in this hotel. they will feel as they entering a melitery compus. bad treatment.
Excellent service, classy hotel
Great Hotel, Wonderful service, Wonderful and attentive staff. Incredibly clean beach. although very beautiful and very scenic, outdoor hotel grounds (not including beach) are quite limited.
This is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Beautiful architecture and efficient, extremely friendly staff made this the perfect place to relax.
Kind, attentive, accomodating staff Needs momre diverse food facilities
Fantastic service, very kind personnel, looks very new and clear It would be great if the beach team would clear not only bay line but and seabed in a swimming area of hotel
The panoramic view on the gulf of Akaba, the fish restaurant, the highleve of the services The noice, they are working and building the upper flores, so the loud noices of the builders ( hammering , drilling) starts at 06.30 early morning, if you want to sleep after noon you can't really
the beauty of the hotel makes you feel special...
Nice setting The services were set out in a very confined space. The restaurants were limited and the food costs were very high for the fare available. A lot of noise travels between rooms and this is off-puttiing. Lots of kids at pool etc and can be very noisy
This hotel is brand new and really is very beautiful. Grand opening was Nov. 15. It is modern and fantastic facilities. Room was wonderful and all room have full ocean view. Buffet breakfast was amazing. The room was uncomfortably hot. We complained about the temperature and to their credit the staff responded promptly and dispatched someone to fix it. Unfortunately, it was not fixed. I filed a complaint at check out the next day.
Food. Large rooms. Noisy (pools close to rooms except for the south wing part of the hotel). We could not change our room since the hotel was fully booked (groups spend one night there before going to Wadi Rum).
Brandnew hotel, very comfortable and modern, very nice pool areas, beautiful view, very comfortable rooms with wonderful beds and balcony, nice toiletry products in the bathroom, free items from the minibar, beautiful bar area and outdoors sitting space, well organised diving centre with helpful staff and beautiful diving/snorkeling possibilities, excellent food with large variety Main restaurant too noisy (awful disco-like background music) and too crowded; Tala Bay area still under construction, feels a little spooky although hotel area a wonderful haven
Clean beach and nice facilities
Superior hotel with high focus on service and quality. great breakfast. Ideal place to finish our wonderful trip in Jordan.
quite and calm
Restaurant red sea spoiled by plastic bags, Ac noise
The place is beautiful, staff very friendly and atmosphere relaxing. None
The time it takes for check in. Our reservation was wrong through boooking,but finally they resolve in one hour! No
More than one pool availble at all times. The pools are not deep so every body can enjoy. The main pool is open until 1 A.M. The beach has stones instead of sand.
Very helpful front desk staff and management Non working ATM in lobby
Beautiful swimming pools with different designs The beach was not as expected, full of stones, I did not swim in the sea
The hotel buildings were very impressive and the grounds were pleasant. The hotel is quite a distance from Aqaba itself.
The pools; the gorgeous food; the friendly staff check-in took too long and there was a lot of waiting around
i like Radisson Blu Tala Bay Resort Aqaba.... sooooooooooooooo muchand i would like to back again next time, but i wish to make some discount i likek everything
The food and service around the restaurant The service personel at checkin was 1 star like, incompetent and finally it took us 1 hour to get the rooms we wanted
it s a great new hotel with al modern facilities. We enjoyed the beach, the swimmingpools, the buffet... The AC in the room makes a lot of noise and blows you away, but without it is too hot
A lot of groups booking, breakfeast and dinner without any attention. Avoid the local holydays when booking.
Location and services
Food is not good
Nice weather ,, and nice place and near to Beach and have a nice swiming pool They charge me jd 20 for only 1 hour late check out .. this is first time in my live I charged for late check out
Location, Pool, spa Room service spilt a drink in my bed, took 2 and a half hours for house keeping ro ruen up and it was midnight before they did. Not happy, I wanted an early night.
enjoyed stay,large pool, Very family hotel,lots of children.20 minutes drive to town.When organizing taxi the staff member was not informative and tried to charge us for taxi fare of 20j.d, however we later found out that the hotel runs a shuttle to the town every morning!!why not just tell us.
All the different facilities avialable for ones use. None
Proximity to the Red Sea, nice pool Horrible service, staff was rude and not receptive to my needs
the hotel design, the hotel atmosphere, the swimming pool very nice and beautiful and the hotel cleanliness. its not allowed to bring anything like water or juice or chocolate or nuts (foods and drinks in general) with you to the hotel.
Across the road from the beach. Very Friendly staff. None
Staff and owner (borrowed me some cash) extremly helpfull. Close to the beach for diving plus snorkling. Easy to meet people with a lot of common places close to the swimming pool. Nice concept with Bedouin. Good food. Small selection of dishes on the menu in the restaurant. Swimming pool not the cleanest I have seen. We stayed 4 nights and they did not clean the room and soap was left from previous guests in our room (no new ones). Renovation of the bathroom could have been better.
The place was a flee pit so dirty, I'm surprised we have not picked up some sort of disease the place is run my Arab man and looks like it has never been cleaned ,I hate to think what the kitchen looks like. do not go!!!!!
Hotel Staff were excelent.
the amtosphere need to add towels and toilet paper to bathtroom
The hotel is well located in front of the South Beach. The swimming pool is very nice. I enjoyed the international athmosphere. It.s very easy to meet other backpapers,share advices with them etc... The big bedouin tentes are very nice to have a drink and smoke narghile. The manager is very sympathical and helpful. Other point: it is cheap!! The breakfast could be more complete. The room was barely clean. I stayed 7 nights and the room has never been cleaned. The bathroom was not ok. We have to throw away your papers in a box and the pressure of the shower is very low.
Nearness to the see and crowded. housekeeping was not adequate. Breakfast was the same. A litte change would be good.
Closure to the beach and privacy. The shower in the room is too slow.
Excellent service and breakfast buffet The beach and pool are constantly innundated w super loud dj'd clubbing music - not good and not relaxing. We asked them to stop/lower but apparently the 'beach customers' have requested entertainment. We sat on the far end of the beach near the kempimski and the music mostly faded away...
Hotel pool & Beach
the design and outlay of the hotel was very good. the pool and beach areas were excellent and the staff throughout the hotel were attentive and pleasant. The white wine in the mini bar was truly disgusting; such a shame as there are so many good Jordanian wines available eg: St George's that would reflect the excellent quality of most Jordanian wines
We liked the Red Sea beach and the various pools and hot tubs. The restaurants were also quite enjoyable.
The Hotel is great all about everything the rooms are luxurious the water sports are near and easy to get the pool is very nice Burj Al Hamam resturant is also great so there is no need to go out of the hotel Some Employees can be rude sometimes
to have a relax time and nice beach nothing special
I did like the organization and the dedication of the staff to their jobs.
the beach was nice and clean the staff are not qualified..., they are aggressive and impolite
The rooms are good The service was poor and prices high.
The rooms were very nice We had a horrible experience of food poisoning following our diner at InterContinental Aqaba. The hotel did not believe it was their food which caused the problem and we got absolutely no compensation.
Nærhet til sentrum, grei standard, egen strand og tre stk svømebasenger, to er oppvarmet Bedre valg av mat til frokost, den er kjedlig spesielt hvis man skal bo der over 2 dager, rom prisene bør reduseres, grill restaurant burde være åpent året rund, hotellet fortjener ikke mer enn 4 stjerner etter min mening.
size of the room. Clean.
no many things
Lovely hotel with a good restaurant!
Good location, near to the center and the airport. Very friendly. Modern Room.
excellent location: ATM, money exchange, alcohol shop (very important thing in Muslim countries!), good rent a car agent, good free parking place are within 100 meters from the doors. Very reasonable location in the town in common.. rather expensive furniture in the room, the room looks pretty good and pretend to be higher level than expected, restroom is ok as well, but cheap shower cabin which looks and works not good (although it works). Also water from air condition drops and damages expensive furniture. In brief: good common renovation but bad current maintenance.
The staff was helpful, the rooms clean and the hotel conveniently located to the city center.
Room and balcony was very comfortable The time taken for internet access
Their diving facilities are very good. The walk to the beach is a bit far.
It is a nice place , no noise , good service as well as reasonable price.
The hotel is very new so everything sparkles. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Very close to diving/snorkeling areas. If you want to be close to the downtown of Aqaba this isn't the place for you. But it is very close to the diving/snorkeling areas.
Good location - 1 min drive to the sea (or 15m walk) and nice view of Gulf of Aqaba. Hotel staff is very friendly, you feel like you are staying with your old friend rather than a hotel. Rooms are very clean, parking is no problem, breakfast is nice and the whole area (including pool) is well maintained and looked after. Good choice if you want to try diving/snorkeling - you easily rent necessary equipment and they can arrange an introductory dive - all for a reasonable price, also they've showed us good snorkeling sites. everything was great!
great location on the beach, wonderful access to good diving. The staff were friendly and the room was clean. Our second room (we asked to change) had a great view of the sea the shower was broken, our first room had a view of the wall. The breakfast was really not good
staff was courteous and eager to help.
The room was comfortable with a beautiful sea view. The snorkeling off the beach was great. The fact that we had everything we needed on site (small shop, rental of diving equipment, buffet, restaurant, snack bar) meant we didn't have to go into the centre of Aqaba - although there was a convenient shuttle service. Functioning AC and TV with a wide selection of channels. Overall we had a pleasant couple of days. While the hotel was OK, we felt it was too expensive for what it was. We had spent a few days at the Intercontinental in Aqaba at the beginning of our Jordan trip, and for marginally more money, we got considerably more value. Our room had a door into the neighbouring room, which although it was locked meant we could hear everything nextdoo
