The apartment is in a fantastic location. It had everything we needed to stay in Talibe and was close to the dive shop where we were getting our certification. There is a beautiful view of the Red Sea from the rooftop deck. Nafe made it really easy to pick up the keys to the house and was really responsive when we had issues with the gate guard.
Nafe was an excellent host--he was very easy to deal with, extremely friendly and helpful. We arranged to pick up the keys up from him the day before our trip in Amman. It seems, however, that he had booked our stay too soon after another renter. We had to arranged the maid to clean during our stay instead of prior to our arrival. He apologized profusely, but it was a frustrating way to start our vacation nonetheless. We love staying at the Tala Bay condos and his was what I've come to expect in terms of location and amenities. Nevertheless, I think this unit is best rented for young people going to Aqaba to party. In my opinion, it would need a little more work to be the ideal rental for a family.
The property was great, and Nafe was a wonderful and accessible host! He met me in Amman to give me the keys to the apartment, and then was easily available by phone and text the entire time we stayed in Aqaba. The air conditioning was broken in one of the rooms when we arrived, but he quickly arranged to have maintenance fix it. The location is beautiful. There really are 2 pools right out your front door, and it is a short walk to the beach, restaurants, and access to hotels with activities like snorkeling and diving. Our only complaint is that the place really is not big enough for 6 adults. There are two bedrooms, and then 1 maid's quarters - style room with a single bed. We were three couples each with a toddler staying at the apartment, and the space was much more cramped than we anticipated. It would been perfect for 4 adults with two toddlers rather than 6. Overall, we had a fantastic stay in Talla Bay and would recommend that apartment and Nafe.
The owner is very polite, we arrange to meet to get the key, he was on time and he even called when we were in Tala Bay to be sure everything was ok. I had his number for anything we needed. The place is spacious and with a good location, Flexible check out time, very close to the Marina, they have private swimming pools and close to the beach. We enjoyed our stay.
What can I say? I travel a lot, and so I've grown used to expecting to be disappointed. This was not the case here. My family and I had such a beautiful stay, we hated to leave. The apartment was clean, quiet, and simple. The beds were comfortable and the mattresses of good quality. Suffice it to say, it had all the amenities one could want for a vacation at the beach. The Tala Bay complex itself is truly lovely. Bougainvillea, Jacaranda, and many other fragrant plants adorn the property and directly before the apartment you'll find two (though you can chose from several) lovely, very quiet swimming pools. Quiet is the key word here. Most of the time, all one hears from the balcony is the sound of birds and the wind. The sunsets from the roof-top inspire contemplation and serenity. If you like to snorkel, go to the Marine Center (a few minutes drive to the north) and drift down the incredibly Japanese Garden corral reef. I'm not exaggerating when I say it's like swimming in a tropical aquarium. As far as dealing with Nafe (the host) is concerned: He was forthcoming, friendly, responded promptly to all inquiries, and very accommodating. I would definitely give him my business again and would certainly like to to visit again. A word about Jordan in general: This country deserves so much more! What a pity, the instability of the countries surrounding it have such an adverse effect on it! The people of Jordan are some of the friendliest, most generous, and welcoming of any place I have visited (and that's saying a lot!). Come and enjoy!
