Hotel's Favorite
The Intercon is around 40 years old and it lacks the chrome and glass facade recent hotel builds. However, its ethos of great customer service compensates. Our room was clean, in good decorative order and was very comfortable. The interior design is a little dated, with dark woods prominent, but it looks and feels classy. We booked a Club Intercontinental room, which included breakfast, afternoon tea and cocktails in the 18th floor lounge. The staff there (Shiela, Mathai, Ahmed, Askander and Vince) were really welcoming and looked after us really well. The food and beverage offer was first class. The hotel has a pool deck on the 3rd floor, which is really nice and also the Bayshore Club, across the marina, which has pools and a sandy beach, bars and a spa. The Bayshore gets very busy and could be noisy with music playing and jet skis driving past. The hotel is in a nice location, being near the Emirates Palace, the Founder's memorial and the Corniche, with good views over the marina or park. Newer attractions (Louvre, Grand Mosque, Yas Island) are 30-40 minutes away by taxi, which was a hassle having to draw cash from ATMs to cover. My suggestion is if you stay here (worth it for the quality of the hospitality and the pools) then rent a car so that you can get around independently (we didn't rate some of the taxis or their drivers too highly). The concierges were excellent, organising day-6 PCR tests and chasing up the results for us – thank you Melanie! Mr Razik (duty manager) introduced himself and took an interest in ensuring we had everything we needed. The only criticism I have is the toiletries supplied in the bathroom were from an obscure brand and didn't seem very luxurious!

Considering that Abu Dhabi is a city of many grand hotels, the Intercontinental definitely manages to hold its own. It is located in one of the top notch areas and many attractions can be easily accessed from it. The staff are extremely helpful and the rooms are big and well appointed. There is a bay for docking of yachts next door, so try to get a room overviewing it. The hotel has a small private beach also, where you can spend free time, and good outdoor dining options in the evening. Definitely one of the best places to stay in the capital of the UAE!

From the moment we arrived we felt "special" all the staff are so attentive, the rooms are very good and spotlessly clean, the restaurants are all excellent "especially the Fish Restaurant on the beach, the beach are itself is great as are all the facilities. An "all inclusive" package is the way to go and offers good value for money. We are already looking at dates to book again for 2022
