Have just returned from 1 week at the Intercontinental and from my experience we could not find any faults at all and we have stayed at many 4 and 5 star hotels all over the world.
Our room was large and comforable and the a/c worked fine. The TV and radio worked and the minibar was always well stocked. The bathroom was spotless and always full of clean towels.
The pool was glorious and and pool guys so very attentive as were every single member of staff we encountered. However on listening to how some of the guests spoke to the staff I am not surprised they received the cold shoulder or a negative response, it was disgraceful the way they were spoken to sometimes. It doesnt hurt to be courteous and polite, we try to be and without fail always get a positive response.
The restaurants were fabulous, especially Chamas which was my favourite! Great food and unlimited Caipurinos, heaven!
Yes the drinks are a little expensive but I think this is to be expected in a hotel of this standard but the food we found to be very good value for money.
The free shuttle to Marina Mall is a bonus and the Concierge were very helpful in booking trips and taxis.
So all in all a great holiday and I would go back there is a heartbeat.
