I stayed here last weekend. Very reasonable prices and the hotel was nice and quiet. Great amenities and the restaurant had great food. Pool and beach were very relaxing and peaceful. If you're going to Aqaba, this is the place to stay.

Stayed at the Intercontinental Aqaba for one night only on business and the staff were courteous and helpful. Room clean and good amenities with coffee and tea station. Breakfast buffet was delicious with a big variety. Sat on the beach and they gave us a small cooler with bottles of water on ice with the towels, which I thought was... More

this hotel met all my expectations of what you expect at the IC. Service was excellent. The rooms are well appointed and the staff were quite helpful. Location on the beach is excellent with a short walk to the center of the city. Compared to Eilat a real buy.

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

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.
