We've just returned to London from another great holiday at the Intercontinental Abu Dhabi. As it's one of the original hotels it's facade isn't the most glitzy but don't let that put you off- inside its 5 star all the way.....the lobby and bar area are wonderful, the front desk staff welcoming,friendly and efficient and nothing was too much trouble for the concierge. The restaurants at the hotel are varied and quite rightly highly rated by the trip adviser community, both the food and the service being faultless during our visit.
The pool area and attendants provide for a chilled out time and when the refurbishment of the beach area is completed undoubtedly it will be the best facility in the state. If you can you must book a room that qualifies for the lounge on the 18th floor - it's such a serene atmosphere with the best staff I have ever experienced, thank you to all of them ! I hope IHG are proud of their team as they are first class, but I must mention Karam Almordaa who epitomises excellence in hospitality and is clearly a gifted businessman with a great career ahead of him ! Well done everyone, a great holiday which we commend to all.
