“Luxury and Value at the Crest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

The Icona staff was very accommodating and well trained. The pool was crystal clear and refreshing with a great view of the ocean. Coastal Blue restaurant simply had the best NY strip in town and once again the staff and the location makes the Icona a five star Luxury resort ocean side in The Crest of Wildwood NJ. The Beach was so clean and the lifeguards were very friendly. The sunsets are beautiful, I cant wait to go back. I highly recommend this five star resort at Diamond Beach NJ for the entire family

Room Tip: All rooms a top notch with great views

My parents were celebrating their anniversary and we met them at the Hotel Icona (Coastal Blue) for breakfast the next day and we were SOOO impressed! I had never been to the hotel before, but it was SO clean, updated and luxurious! My parents had the most enjoyable time and showed us their room and kept telling us how much they loved it. The staff was so friendly and accommodating too. We had breakfast at Coastal Blue which was DELICIOUS! We sat outside on the deck and just had the most memorable time and incredible breakfast. Hotel Icona is a hidden gem and we will absolutely be back!

Pros: Easily the best value for an upscale hotel in all of Crest or Diamond Beach. Despite being a hotel with indoor room access, all balconies are at a 45 degree angle giving all rooms a beach view. The staff at the desk, cleaning, and restaurant are very courteous, helpful, and in great moods. Awesome Wi-Fi coverage in and around the entire facility with great speeds. Rooms are clean and comfortable and can easily accommodate several people. Beds are so comfortable and cool. A/C is very effective. Keurig coffee in the room is so awesome! The beach is kept very clean and is not overcrowded at all. The on-site restaurant serves excellent tasting food and great prices, including awesome deals at certain times. The gym is adequately equipped. Overall, the hotel looks luxurious and in impeccable condition, and you feel that as soon as you enter the lobby from the front entrance.

Cons: nothing major but no toaster in the room.

This was the first time that we stayed in Diamond Beach on the Jersey Shore and because the Icona was so accommodating we can not wait to return! I'm not certain whose does the hiring at this hotel but what an impeccable job of hand picking the finest employees. I had my special needs sister with me and they made her feel like the Queen of Icona! The hotel is very very clean, steps to a beautiful beach and a bike ride from the Wildwood crest boardwalk. Even though our hotel room had a stove and small refrigerator we still took advantage to the fabulous restaurant and I'm glad we did! I highly recommend this hotel - take a trip and enjoy!

Room Tip: If you are traveling with your family of 4 or more, I would suggest you ask for the absolute largest...

I've stayed at many spots at the Jersey shore but none like the Hotel Icona. It's a great upscale hotel on a beautiful beach, great pool and great poolside restaurant. I felt like I was at the Caribbean rather than the Jersey shore. Highly recommend.

A very clean and quiet hotel that caters to families and couples alike!
Top notch Service and assistance. The ability to go from the pool to the beach was welcomed and seamless. Very clean beach with such soft sand. We will definitely return over and over.

My family and I stayed at the Hotel Icona last week for three nights and had a wonderful time. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful. Our room was on the first floor. So even though it was on the first floor and the balcony was not very private, you can still see the ocean. The pool area was very clean. The walk to the ocean was short and beautiful. Felt like we were in the Caribbean. We only had breakfast at the hotel restaurant but it was very good. The only issue that I could find is that the wifi wasn't working all that well. Overall, very nice hotel and can't wait to go back!
