There were three of us in one room which was not a problem. They brought a cot (which was more a twin bed and comfortable) and there was still enough room to move around. We were in the three storey building with an ocean view. Very nice.
The waitresses in the bar are by far the best of any all-inlcusive I've been to. They were very friendly and tried to get people to have a good time.
The bar service on the beach was hit and miss. There is one waiter who works two days a week (sorry I forget his name) who was awesome. He not only brought water without being asked, he moved chairs and got tables etc. Other servers ran the gamut of being attentive or non-existent.
The 2 worst things about the Intercontinental are the wine and lack of water in the rooms. The wine is by far the worst wine any of us had ever encountered at an all-inclusive. The white was gross, the red was like boat gas. Other patrons told us to go to the Walmart to buy wine. There are plenty of good wines in the world available at a reasonable cost. When we tried to buy a decent bottle of wine in the specialty restaurant, they were sold out. Intercontinental needs to ramp up here. The water issue was a sore spot. They allot 2 bottles of water per person per day. They said up front that it is no problem to get water from room service at any time. The first time we ordered 6 bottles so that we had 2 per person. We gave them a $2 tip thinking that was fine. The next day when we ordered 6 bottles, the room service attendant was very surly and told us it costs $5, and that you could only get 4 bottles free. This is not only a cash grab for tips, but also a health issue. Alot of us drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and resent that water is like liquid gold. They need mini-bars in the rooms stocked with beer, water and soft drinks.
The food was o.k., nothing spectacular, just the regualar all-inclusive fare.
