I ended up stranded in Aqaba for a few hours and decided to buy a beach pass at the hotel. The pass had pool, beach and voucher for food and drink. The showers and lockers were nice. The beach and pool were very clean. Had a great lunch at the hotel's Lebanese restaurant. I would have totally booked a room... More

When my dad came to visit me in Jordan in January, we stayed a couple of days at the InterContinental in Aqaba. I was really impressed by the hotel, it was even more than a luxury hotel and way better than I expected! Off season, the hotel was not full, so it was quite calm and we had the beach... More

This was a beautiful, luxurious hotel. The food was good, the staff were friendly, the pool was amazing. Only stayed a couple of nights as part of Sagas Treasures of Jordan Trip, which was fantastic by the way. Wished I could have stayed much longer. One of my very favourite hotels of all time.

I stayed there in Ramadan and had nice and relaxing time. Room was nice, central AC a bit noisy, but otherwise it was good. Martini's lounge was showing football on big TVs but for such big space they very actually small and not of real use. For some reason they also needed 45 min to bring our order and finally... More

the facilities of the hotel were in line with the 5 stars standard I expected so, in that regard, the hotel, is perfect. I couldn't help noticing, however, that while the local staff was sometimes cold, unfriendly and inexperienced in customer service, the Filipino staff brought smiles, warmth and kindness to an environment which would be sterile and cold otherwise.
