So I came here to stay a day and ended up staying a week. The staff seems to be new and slightly undertrained (?) but they certainly make up in friendliness where they lack in training. The massage service is the absolute best massage I've had in my life. The only thing I hated in my stay here was the... More

Overall a positive feedback. The staff were generally friendly and helpful. Ate in the Selections (buffet) Restaurant: Breakfast was excellent but a couple of dinners were disappointing - bland and uninpsired. Works on the Beach facilities were not intrusive. Big negative was that our room overlooked the Hotel Concourse and when the Yacht Club closed at 3am we were awoken... More

Was there for a weekend conference. All was satisfactory. Nice swimming pool. A pleasant dining area with great view. Nice approach to beach and D marina. A surprising and welcome amenity in a hairdresser. Conference rooms rather dark and characterless.

I live in Abu Dhabi so I haven't actually stayed in the hotel, however I regularly visit the health club/pool with my family and dine at the restaurants in the hotel. Well, today after the pool we went to the Selections buffet for dinner. I was very disappointed at the range of hot food on offer and the very limited... More

My husband I stayed at the InterContinental Abu Dhabi for 7 nights in February, and it was simply a wonderful experience. Our room was clean, the service impeccable, the atmosphere - while not being as shiny and new as some of the glamorous newer hotels, as refined. A hotel with the reputation of this one, does not need to impress... More

Four of us ladies stayed at this hotel in March and had a fantastic time. The hotel is centrally situated and walking everywhere is easy. However, the hotel provides a free bus servbice to most places. Staff were fantastic and so helpful they can arrange anything you want to do. The beach is large and never full. Some extension work...

This is one of the oldest hotels in town. But its living proof that good maintenance and management can make all the difference. The hotel looked old from the outside but was beautiful from the inside. The lobby and the rooms were very luxurious. We stayed there for the weekend. The staff was very welcoming. The rooms were clean with... More

Had a business/winter break 10 days here. Allocated room on the city side which was extremely noisy with boy racers strutting their stuff on the main road outside the hotel. Moved to a beach/marina facing room and it was heaven - great room, beautiful views over the sea and marina. Great beach and facilities. Food excellent in all three restaurants,... More

We booked the Intercon for a weekend - Friday and Saturday nights. We wanted to stay at the Hilton just round the corner as it has a great beach club, good breakfast etc but the Abu Dhabi Triathlon was on and rooms at the Hilton shot up in price, so the Intercon seemed to offer better value.
