“Great”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

A smashing hotel, I had a massive double room, with a sea view, all to myself. The robe and flip flops came in handy, the sea shore facilities, ice, water, towel arrangement enhanced the experience. Breakfasts were good but the evening meals were limited in choice and had little flavour, but that was the case in all the Jordan hotels we stayed in.

Stayed October 2013, traveled with family

I went their with a group of friends, from the moment we entered the Hotel we were dazzled by the beautiful lobby ... we were greeted in a professional way and a friendly way that made us feel so special. The team of the Hotel gave each one of us a personalized service that made our stay extremely special.
Rooms are spacious and very clean, Pools are beautiful, not to forget the sandy beach ... Special thanks to management as it seems they give high importance and attention to their employees and as a result us as guests get the best service.

I didn't want to leave!!
I have visited Aqaba many times and this hotel has to be by far the best one I have stayed in! The people who work at the Intercontinental were so friendly and welcoming.
The rooms are very spacious with a brilliant view of both the coast of Aqaba and Israel. Providing a full range gym and indoor squash court it was easy to work out and then head to the spacious sandy beach where they offered great food and drinks.
There were so many options to choose from in terms of water sports from parasailing to banana boats- I highly recommend something called the flying fish.
I really couldn't be happier with my stay at the Intercon, the little gift shops were open at night and we could get whatever last minute things we needed without leaving the hotel. Everything about this place was luxurious without being pretentious.. there is something for everyone- large heated pools, spa, gym, water sports, beach volleyball and shows for the kids! I cant wait to go back, my friends and I had a blast. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

My experience at this resort was nothing short of exceptional. The lounge and activity areas are large and open spaces, both luxurious and welcoming. The view from my room was a breathtaking scene of a stretch of sea from left to right, with mountains enclosing either side in the distance. The rooms were large, comfortable, and maintained daily by the staff.

The pool lies along horizontally to the resort, and since my stay was in November when the air was chilled, it was kept heated; another conscious effort to ensure the comfort of the resort's guests. I went to the gym one day which is in another excellent facility past a squash court and spa rooms. It was well equipped with machines, which were also either brand new or very well maintained. The staff was also helpful here, letting me know that if there was anything I needed help with, they would be there to assist me.

Now, food is a whole other subject. The complimentary breakfast contained a large variety of selections, so every day I got to try something new, or add on to what I really enjoyed and couldn’t get enough of. There is an omelette station where you choose your ingredients, as well as a pancake and waffle station. There are also multiple buffet stations to choose from with an array of international cuisine. The hospitality was attentive, replacing beverages and cutlery if needed.

After breakfast I would walk down past the pool and onto the beach, which was also very clean and well kept, with more than enough seating. Buoys enclosed the area for privacy. To the left was an area where you could sign up for recreational sport activities, such as parasailing, banana boating, or tubing.

In all, the resort ensured that I had the best experience of Aqaba. The range of facilities is expansive with something for everyone! The combination of that factor with the comfort of this resort made it an absolutely excellent stay. I only wish that I had more time to experience it all!

From the moment of arrival I felt welcome and comfortable. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. Room had a half view of the Red Sea which was more than adequate. Full range of facilities available with beach and pool well set up for guests. Food of a high standard with attentive service from the staff. I wish I could have stayed longer.
