I had a very pleasant stay. Special thanks goes to Hannes Schneider the housekeeping supervisor for everything (really appreciated) and to Rokaya for the smoothness and time efficiency during checkin and checkout. Too bad the weather was too hot use the beach.

It's a nice hotel, location is good, and best of all dining experience. But in comparison with other new hotels in Abu Dhabi, the rooms are very average, just need renovation and new furniture. Restaurants in the hotel are among the best in the city, swimming pool is great also.

If you want to go for a hotel with style good service and sofistication please visit this one. It got several restaurants all more remarkable then the other. Professional staff and a perfect concierge service. Just sit back relax and let the staff do the work! There is a small Souk nearby for some shopping or just a starbucks,,,

Just returned from a weeks holiday. Excellent value for money. The staff were really helpful and not pushy. Stopped half board and there was a good selection of food. The new beach front amenities are excellent and free Wifi in the rooms.

I stayed in the club room. Hotel room rate is cheap. I had a discounted summer rate too. I had to ask for help with luggage when I was up on 9th floor club reception. Housekeeping works very hard though. My room was cleaned every time I came back. Sometimes it was only within two hours. Club lounge breakfast and... More

Overall: Stayed here for one night in July during Eid. Overall, I had a comfortable stay and liked the hotel's laid back vibe. I do think the hotel is a little dated and location-wise it is slightly remote. Check in: this was very fast, although I got the sense that the agent was new. He didn't ask for a credit... More

InterContinental Abu Dhabi is perfectly situated on the beach and less than 10 minutes from bustling downtown and the Abu Dhabi International Exhibition Centre. Heritage Village, the Cultural Foundation and Lulu Island are also close by. For a unique shopping experience, the Gold Souk (market) is a must while the Marina and Abu Dhabi Malls offer more contemporary alternatives. The hotel concierge can arrange a 4x4 desert safari for those looking for adventure."We are currently working on a beach re-development scheduled to start during the second week of April 2012 and due to be finalized by the third quarter of 2013 .Our exciting new project will enhance the facilities in our hotel by uplifting our outdoor areas. We will take every effort to minimize the disruption to our guests who will continue to have full access to the beach and can enjoy a dip in the sea. Guests can also continue to enjoy our outdoor pool located in our main block." ... more   less
