We had a family trip to Abu Dhabi. Location is perfect, close to AUH beach and marina mall. Room is spacious and clean, swimming pools are large and good. They have kids swimming area with slides and games.. Excellent for families. Breakfast is not what you expect from Intercontinental, the area is small, not up to 5 star hotel dining... More

my second visit to CHAMAS this vacation, the first one on the 17/7/16 was an experience we will never forget, the reception we got was fantastic. We were introduced to all the staff and informed of the protocol for selecting our food, however this did not get us ready for what an unbelievable experience was to come. We were warned... More

Stayed in the Abu Dhabi Intercontinental for 1 day only but was extremely pleased with the staff and the amenities. Abu Dhabi has a lot of different hotels on offer but I'm glad i choose this one as they also offered me a late 3pm checkout, since my flight was at 8pm.

Recently attended Friday Brunch on 15th July and it really was disappointing for the following reasons; A large booking was taken of 42 people that affected the available space to move around and the level of table service for drinks. Woefully understaffed for the number of people that had booked and attended. Drinks afterwards upstairs and the service was quite... More

Just home following a 12 night stay at the Intercon Abu Dhabi. We arrived at the end of Ramadan so the hotel was quiet but the staff couldn't do enough for us. We were advised on where to go and what to do during Ramadan and told of what Eid would bring. The hotel itself was immaculate, the large lobby... More

Returned there for two nights with the family after a few years. Where to begin?? Never felt so pampered as a gold member before, lightening quick check in and whisked away to our suite. Loyalty has its perks... First dinner at Chamas, still an all time favourite. We look forward to coming back there after Ramadan as the band usually... More

This was our 3rd visit to The Intercontinental and sadly was not our best. The hotel, staff, service, room was as always, excellent, however changes around the hotel, particularly the beach and surrounding district have taken some of the previous charm away from the property. Our arrival was handled quickly and check in was courteously and professionally completed. The room... More
