Very pleasant hotel

The hotel is good, there was few issues, but they have excellent staff, and thats a winner! They make you feel special, always available to you, taking good care of everything that you need. The beach is very noise due to construction work near by. The hotel was very full and there was queue for breakfast.

In need of some tlc

In some areas the hotel is in need of refurbishment Room was ok but not the most comfortable mattress/ pillows, small bathroom Bayshore swimming pool / beach access was overcrowded & lots missing pool tiles, it's not just for hotel guests Club lounge ok but men have to wear trousers at all times which makes popping for a drink a pain as you have to keep changing, it's 40+ degrees not the ideal climate for long trousers all the time

Gorgeous hotel

Pros: The location and views from our room were the best. Taxis were also readily available at any time outside the hotel.
Cons: We had a triple room which was a double with an extra bed. The extra bed was a little on the hard side but luckily for me a can sleep anywhere so ok.
Location: The location is good. Lots to do and see. The formula one track at yas island was brilliant and the grand mosque is a must.
the intercontinental in Abu dhabi is a beautiful hotel. The hotel grounds are spotless and with amazing views. We spent 1 week here in February. Even though it is winter in the UAE it's was lovely and warm and enjoyed sitting outside in the Belgian cafe. The staff were very accommodating and pleasant and nothing was too much to ask. Anything we required for our room (I.e extra tea bags, towels etc) we rang reception and it was promptly delivered to our room. Raj who cleaned our room on a daily basis was so lovely and left us little chocolates on our pillows which was a nice touch. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would certainly stay here again. x

Great Trip

The Incontinental hotel provides excellent service. I was left feeling a valued Customer At the centre of this is the exceptional customer service from the Team of staff. The meals were a little expensive but the taste was exceptional.

Married couple left kids at home

This hotel is the oldest in the area but is still very good, unfortunately we booked during Ramadan which meant most of the restaurants were closed so i can only review the belgian cafe. The food in the cafe in our hotel was excellent i suggest the tenderloin steak which was the best i have ever had. There is also a fantastic selection of beers from Belgium but they were at least £8 a pop so bring your credit card. The staff were very friendly and the concierge was extremely helpful but unforunately most of the trips we could have done were closed during Ramadan. The hotel was spotless and cleanliness is obviously a priority for them. The beach is undergoing some work to improve it, but i found it very quiet and extremely relaxing, buy some beach shoes to wear into the sea as the sand is boiling, although it was quite amusing watching people try to negotiate the sand on their way to the sea. I would also try the Nahaam restaurant at the nearby Jumeriah towers as the food was superb. The marina mall is the best for shopping but is quite expensive, but not very far away in a taxi.
