Had a fantastic meal at Chamas. Beautifully well cooked meat, and friendly staff. The sommelier (whose name I didn’t catch) was great, and Njambi was incredibly helpful and welcoming. Thanks so much! As I expect it is for most people, my favourite was the picanha cut- absolutely incredible.

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!

Intercontinental is a great place to stay at but what makes this stay wonderful is their staff, especially Solomon. I’ve been staying here for almost a month and each day I see him makes my stay better.

3 night stay at this old matured hotel good for guests that have that sense of the mature old fashioned way of hoteling UAE land this place has been longstanding before the new hotels surrounding it, service in the Clublounge is good but no breakfast in mornings available, best thing to do is just order room breakfast and make sure you tell them that you are a club lounge member they can verify it themselves so you do no need to pay the room charge as advised by club lounge staff and front desk, I think though in certain areas room decor could be improved bathrooms need to be stripped out totally and redoing, not what I would class as 5 star, the local gift shop store, no longer in operation, please reopen immediately and they Jewellery store, no need today for them to be closed why? The Ex-Etihad Towers has below shop and mall open, why can’t this place not do the same, it was remarked that some of the restaurants are closed too! As a Diamond IHG member, we expect more onsite places open, people are wearing masks and adhering to the UAE rules that should be good enough
