Our recent stay at Intercontinental was truly exceptional. The staff demonstrated a high level of professionalism, ensuring a seamless experience throughout. The room was impeccably clean and well-maintained. The breakfast provided was delightful, and the dinner offerings were more than satisfactory. The beach facilities were impeccable, offering a perfect setting for relaxation. The swimming pools were well-kept and added to the overall enjoyment of our stay. Our children thoroughly enjoyed the vacation as well.

Hotel's Favourite
We have just returned home after a really lovely 8 nights at this hotel. We didnt want to leave. We arrived around 10am and our room wasnt ready, which was ok as we were able to leave our bags with the hotel staff and relax around the pool on the 3rd floor until our room was ready. The pool area was ok, nothing special, could do with a spruce up. Plenty of beds and umbrellas. The pool bar was nice.. but £8-10 for a mocktail was expensive. Complimentary water in ice buckets were given to us. Across from the pool is the health club. It was nice to cool down inside and take a dip in the cold plunge pool. You will also find a jacuzzi, sauna and steam room and some relaxation beds. Our room was on the 9th floor with a view of the marina. The room was a good size, double bed and a single fold up bed that we requested. Their was plenty of space for our clothes, wardrobe and drawers. The bathroom was clean and had everything we needed. Maid service was great, we always came back to a clean room, beds made/changes and fresh towels. The air con was great, worked perfectly and wasnt noisy at all. The room had a fridge and a kettle with tea and coffee which was replenished daily too. Bottled water is left in the room daily and we put this in the fridge. We only had breakfast with our stay and it was just what we needed.. hot food selection, continental options, pastries, cereals, yoghurts, honey, bread, made to order eggs brought over to our table. Hot drinks were great and the staff were attentive. We absolutely loved the Bayshore Beach club, it was great. Just a couple of minutes walk around the marina and you are in a beautiful part of the resort. The infinity pool was really relaxing with the waterfall and the view over the beach and the hammocks near by. Their are private cabanas but these are at an extra cost. I loved that this hotel had a beach.. well kind off, there arent any waves etc, but it was lovely still with a great view of the skyscrapers behind. Plenty of sunloungers and bar to order food and drinks. The only negative i have about the beach club is when we asked for bottled water (which is complimentary ok the 3rd floor pool) we were told we would have to pay for it. I asked if we could just have cold water in a cup and they said the beach bar could assist with that. The beach bar only had warm filtered water from a machine but he gave me some ice and small cup.. in 107° heat, a small cup is silly. I was directed to a cold water machine near the childrens pool which was better, but still annoying as the cups were so small and meant going backwards and forwards. It made no sense that resort guests had to pay for water at the beach club but it was complimentary in the room and at the 3rd floor pool. The location of this hotel is great, we travelled to yas island a couple of times and it was a 25 min drive. Saadiyat island is about 25 mins away too. We drove to Dubai a few times too and it was 1hr 20 mins. Easy drive. I will not hesitate to stay at this hotel again, apart from it needing a little spruce up, (as other 5 star hotels are alot more plush that we have stayed in) i have no complaints. It had everything we needed, it was clean, staff were friendly, food was nice, parking was plentiful. We loved our stay. I just wish we had longer! Thank you!

When I faced some problems most of the staff I dealt with don’t care ! The quality of service was not excellent as I used to experience from same hotel ! Sometime I had to go to the reception by myself to follow up on things to a level that the instant service agents used to tell that it’s for emergency only and refuse to take the requests ! House keeping missed to clean up the room ! Management are not taking the responsibility of their staff mistakes ! Everyday I had multiple issues and they didn’t start to take actions but when I had to raise a complain to IHG they started to ask for the feedback ? So many different and not straightforward responses ! I don’t recommend this hotel especially in busy times

I am currently at this hotel on the last day of my holiday. I cannot fault the facilities, food or staff, everything has been amazing. We have the dine around package which includes drinks and food. Unfortunately however on our last day we do not leave the hotel until 11.30pm, we did not check in until 10pm on arrival which means we were charged a full day but after breakfast this morning we have been told we will have to pay for any food or drinks. So in reality we have been charged for 7 nights but only had use of the hotel for 6, I addressed this with the reception but was told this was hotel policy. This has left me very disappointed and would probably mean I would look for another hotel when returning to Abu Dhabi next year.

As we spend our last day at this marvellous hotel, I feel compelled to leave a review. I am a very fussy traveller and this hotel.is fantastic. I travelled with my husband and my 12 year old daughter. Our room on the 18th floor was enormous and very comfortable. There are 2 excellent pools, but we chose to spend our time at the Bayshore beach club, where there is a heated pool, pool bar, beach and restaurant. Perfect! The Belgian bar, back at the hotel, was q great place to have drinks on the evening and showed all the live football on a giant screen. The main hotel restaurant offers a fantastic selection of food. We chose the dine around package, which I highly recommend, as we were able to dine at lots of other restaurants around the hotel / marina. Chamas Brazilian restaurant was our favourite. We also had breakfast in the club lounge on the 18th floor. What a relaxing experience. The staff at the hotel make this hotel what it is. They are an absolute credit to the hotel. Every member we met was friendly and made you feel very welcome. I would absolutely recommend this hotel and will definitely return one day. Thank you for an excellent holiday!
