The hotel is located very close to the airport - not even a five min drive. The bus stop for the shuttle bus to the hotel is located behind the intercontinental hotel - if you are arriving in the international arrivals area, walk out of the terminal, walk through a path to the left of the intercontinental hotel facing you, and the bus stop is right behind the hotel.
The rooms are average for a big hotel chain - nothing special, nothing bad. The bathroom fixtures in some of the rooms are old and can be difficult to use (knobs hard to turn). When my mother complained to the front desk about the difficulty she had in turning the knobs, they immediately switched our room to another one - with new bathroom fixtures that are user friendly.
The buffet dinner at the hotel restaurant was very good - excellent fish served during the night I was there. Breakfast was good, with a smoothie station.
