This is our second time in Abu Dhabi the first visit being to the Rotana Beach and Towers. The location of the Intercontinental is much better as is the beach. The views and atmosphere in Abu Dhabi is not as good as Oman but it is great value for money and not as frenetic on developement as Dubai. (There is some but does not spoil the view and very little noise.) We would definately recomend booking a club room as this gives free breakfast, afternoon tea, a light meal at night (salad bar, cold meats and fish and at least 3 hot presentations of either fish, kebabs, chicken satay etc. with a chef on duty.) Wine, beer aperatif's etc. are served between 7 & 9pm with soft drinks all day. Nearly a type of all inclusive if you choose to use it. The hotel is spotless and the staff eficient and helpful. The location is a 5 minute taxi ride to the Marina Mall shopping centre with lots of shops and cafe' - restaurant's. Abu Dhabi airport lacks space and seating but on leaving arrivals all taxi prices are published clearly- Abu Dhabi being 70 dirham (£10). Beware! The taxi driver did not speak english and took us to the Grand Continental hotel which is at the other side of town. He was not at all a happy man!
