Just returned from an excellent relaxing time in Port Ghalib. The staff at the Intercontinental are most welcoming and helpful but not intrusive. The front desk and beach staff were particularly helpful and made us feel special. The pool and grounds are immaculate and the rooms are to a good standard - comfortable and spacious. There is an excellent house reef accessed via a jetty which is so much better than the reefs in the northern resorts of the Red Sea. The only downside was the food which I think has been mentioned in one or two other reveues. We stayed fortunately B&B. We ate once in the buffet and once a la carte. Both were very disappointing for a 5* Hotel. We ate at other times at Di Vinos an Italian restaurant in the Marina next to TGI Fridays - excellent food at reasonable prices. This is not a negative review - we would stay here again but the senior management need to increase the spend on quality food.
