Exceptional location in a small port. Very quiet and refined place. The personnel is attentive to meet their guests´ requests. The food is of high quality, there are no queues to get served. The Buffet of the evening meal is thematic and elegantly decorated.

We booked this break when the hotel was the intercontinental, we knew what to expect from this five star hotel chain. We were informed by the hotel management by email that the hotel was now in new ownership, but our booking was honoured (apart from any IHG membership benefits). They helped arrange a car for the airport transfer (we flew... More

I stayed at this hotel in October last year. From the moment I entered the hotel I was welcomed, looked after and treated like a king. This did not end for the length of the stay. Everyone from the food and beverage team to the front desk team couldn't do enough to ensure my stay was exactly what I was... More

Me and my daughter spent our Christmas time at Intercontinental The Palace Port Ghalib. It is a real Paradise; everything there is perfect, starting from the very comfortable and big room with a fantastic garden and sea view. We went to Port Ghalib to relax and we had the most relaxing vacation of our life! All the staff is really... More

This hotel is amazing, the service is just above and beyond. The grounds are great and we even got to choose a new room when the room that we where given was noisy. Great food, great snorkeling, great activities and beyond all amazing staff!

"The Palace" is well-named, because walking around it feels like you're in a medieval castle. The staff is very friendly and try to be helpful, although while I was there, the management converted over from Intercontinental to another brand, which caused some hiccups that the staff weren't able to resolve. One of the differences between this hotel and the other... More

Personell was very friendly and helpful. We liked the possibility to walk to Port Ghalib with some shops. Rooms were nice and very clean. Food was very good - probably a little improvable. Had a great time at the New Years-Party. :-))) Different day-trips are possible and well organized. Great swimming-possibility both in deep as well as in shallow water.... More

Great rooms facing the beach or the pool. Lovely food, especially the barbeque.. the restaurants close by 2:30 pm but there is always room service. The staff is very friendly. The airport shuttle and concierge are excellent. The water activities arranged by the hotel are just marvelous. Outside the hotel vicinity, there is a another area of restaurants and shopping...
