Stayed for one night. Good sized room, comfortable bed and ok wifi speed. Cleaning was not ok. Dust bunnies (made of hair and other stuff) lay in the corners of the tiled floor and the little rug was full of fluff. Additionally the duvets (there were two beds in my room and I tried both duvets) had a faint smell... More

As part of our Jordan Select Tour we stayed one night at the Intercontinental Hotel. A large resort on the Gulf of Aqaba the Intercontinental is located in a quieter area with its own beach area. We arrived in the early evening and left early the next morning therefore not much comment. Time of year meant it was quiet but... More

We spent 3 days at the Intercontinental Aqaba Resort and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. We had one of the cheaper rooms and had absolutely no complaints! We had a very nice balcony with a view of the construction site next door but also a sideways view of the water - the sunsets were still beautiful from there. We... More

The hotel is by the beach (as one should expect of a resort) and offers good service with well maintained facilities. Personally, I tend to not like large hotels/resorts, but this time we had a pleasant experience afterall. Service was good (particularly, from all the Philippine staff) and food was expensive. The rooms were large, with a spacious balcony and... More

Very good staff, great location and facilities.during low season the main restaurant in the hotel is closed. Also would be really nice to try and have a specific area for kids or families with younger children, relaxing at the beach was noisy.

The Intercontinental in Aqaba is laid-back and, even though it is only a decade or so old, seems like a bit of a throwback. That is a compliment, and in keeping with Aqaba's mellow vibe: the staff is helpful, professional and sweet; the beach (to me seemed like) the best among the hotel beaches in Aqaba, and the price offers...
