After a beautiful but tiring six day desert tour, we were looking forward to our week´s stay at the Intercontinental Port Ghalib. First of all, it still looks beautiful and has a gorgeous reef, the problem is that there are issues which need to be fixed. Firstly the biggest disappointment as returning guests is that we soon realised that the... More

First of all it is a great location with lively and helpful staff and lots of good things to enjoy including a precious and well preserved reef. In the harbour, there are one or two restaurants with a good atmosphere and cheerful food for great prices. With our frequent travel to 5* Taba/ Sharme/ El Gouna/ Dahab/ Marsa destinations over...

The InterContinental Port Ghalib is the best hotel in the region with western oriented quality and customer service. The food options were good and the staff was friendly. Most outstanding was Julia, the guest relations manager, who did everything possible to ensure my vacation was amazing. She helped put me in contact with the best dive operators and great restaurant... More

Intercontinental The Palace Port Ghalib is a impressive hotel with very nice rooms, tasty food and excellent service by the very friendly staff. The coral reef in front of the hotel can be recommended for snorkeling or diving. I will come again.

This is my second visit to the Intercontinental The Palace Port Ghalib. I found that the new management has made the unfortunate decision to place the beach allocation for the Intercontinental where the Crowne Plaza was. Because of this move many of the Eastern European guests from the Crowne Plaza resort walk through your area of the beach to get... More

We took our two teenage children on a two week holiday to the InterContinental at Port Ghalib. The hotel is situated in a man made resort between the Sahara and the Red Sea, with 3 hotels, a marina, conference centre and some shops. The InterContinental has around 300 rooms while the two Crowne Plazas next door have around 700 rooms.... More

Bonjour, Séjour du 19/07 au 03/08. This Hotel is far above the average hotel in Egypt, however it can not be classified as a Palace according to international standards. Anyway, we had a quiet and relaxing 2 weeks stay in this hotel. The staff is very customer oriented, and will do whatever they can to please you. I have to... More
