First of all, all reviews I write are about value for money. Not about genereal standard. I cannot really understand all the positive reviews of The Intercontinental. Ok, the architechture is beautiful. The hotel, pool area - everything is spotless. Some (but not all!) members of the staff are professional. But does this hotel match up to a price that... More

The Palace Intercontinental is absolutely wonderful! I have been there 2 times one week in december (2013 and 2014) and I plan on going back many times. It is relaxed, food is great and the service is impeccable. The staff is very friendly and do everything to make you feel like a king. Rooms are cleaned twice a day and... More

Just back from a week at the Intercontinental Palace in Port Ghalib and it certainly lives up to its rating.

The food is excellent with all tastes catered... More

Great service and big breakfast and dinner buffets. Very nice looking hotel, just a few steps from the ocean with great snorkling. The pool area is wonderful and I highly recommend this hotel. The service is very good, just ask any in the staff and they will help you with a smile on their face.

InterContinental Palace Marsa Allam in one of the best hotels in Egypt. I have been their over ten times. The hotel offers great offers with great values. In addition to a wide range of activities for adults, teenagers, and children. Plus, the service, food, and location is great. You won't regret it. It's beautiful. Just try.
