This beautiful gigantic beach and pool area will please anyone. The spa is spacious and clean and very charming. Unfortunately the service is not quite that of a five-star hotel. Wild waiters are trying hard stuff is trained poorly. Some of the facilities are slightly run down.

There's always something special about InterContinental Hotels, and this one is no exception. I had stayed in this hotel a couple of years ago, and couldn't help but notice how much effort has been put to improve the service from then.

I have been there on business (and some tourism) every two years and I always felt good. Rooms are great, large, beautiful and comfortable, you can also hang the clothes out to dry on a rope in the bathroom. Breakfast is rich and good, restaurants are ok. The staff is very helpful, but you have to adapt to them, do... More

I used to go with my brother-in-law to play squash. it's a calm relaxing place. you have two juices with two fruits/vegetables for the sport-break time. meanwhile, sauna and Jacuzzi associated with the sports' arena expands your relaxing mode.
