It was an extraordinary stay,I liked the way the staff treated the customers specially the front office team(Omar wrekat(duty manager),Ahmad Al.la'mei(reception) since they helped us during our stay). Martini Bar was great and corniche restaurant was perfect (Noor),finally it was amazing stay. I do highly recommend intercontinental Aqaba Resort.

We stayed one night during Ramadan. It was very quiet - no where near filled to capacity and at times we felt like we had the place to ourselves. It came with all the luxury and quality you would expect of an intercontinental hotel, and the price was quite the value. We were especially happy with the Lebanese restaurant in... More
