This is the best bit of beach in Aqaba. We were upgraded to a room with a great view of the sea and were able to get a late checkout. Good size room with a fab bath ... And a selection of pillows to choose from. All staff were friendly and accommodating. Perfect location for a quick walk into town....

The hotel is nicely situated just next to the red sea with its own beach. We had a beautiful view from our room. Partly to the sea – and partly to the Israel part of the gulf with the afternoon sun. (It is also possible to get rooms with full sea view – or partly sea view in the other...

I recently stayed in the Intercontinental Aqaba, around 2 weeks ago. It was my second time in 8 years. I was shocked to find that the hotel had not changed nor was it refurbished for the past 8 years. The room furniture especially felt old and used. It is still a decent place to stay, but it hasn't maintained the...

Things I enjoyed: great spa (massage), well equipped gym, free airport shuttle, generous breakfast buffet, and good location right on the beach. Staff overall was friendly but not always competent. They did allow early check in (and late check out, for a fee) which I appreciated. My main complaint is the room itself. The furniture is worn, the room was...
