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.

I can highly recommend this hotel. It's relaxed, lovely atmosphere, good facilities and helpful staff. Stayed for three days to enjoy Aqaba, swim in the sea and get some sun. Had a lovely room with a balcony facing the bay. Balconies are built in so they provide good privacy. Pool area is big with good opportunity to privacy. The beach... More

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...

My wife and I stayed at the Intercontinental for two nights. Following a very active three-day excursion in the Wadi Rum area, the comfort and conveniences of the hotel felt great. Upon arrival we were offered a promotional price (JOD 35 per night) to upgrade to the club floor that included breakfast (which was not part of our original booking),... More

This is hotel is located within easy walking distance of Aqaba (5-10 mins walk) and also is located on the water. Rooms are pretty good and buffet breakfast is very good. We did have dinner in the Cafe upstairs and food was really good. Pretty nice hotel overall.
