We came back last Sunday after a very leisurely week in the Intercontinental. The hotel may not be top-design compared to the Kempinski next door, but is is very nice and cozy, with a beautiful swimming pool and a very nice beach. The staff is very helpful.
We took the option for the club-lounge, and a sea-view. I think it was worth the extra expense.
What I regret is the stupid and sometimes too loud music on the beach. I would rather listen to the waves than have to listen to disco music while relaxing.
Please make at least part of the beach silent.
I was surprised to see so many burkinis in the pool. These are forbidden in Belgium for hygienical reasons.
