2 nights to bid farewell to 2016 and usher in 2017! The place is huge but having been at <40% occupancy, was great to spend the 2 days. We could manage a dip in the sea at the reserve beach and also enjoy quiet walks into town from here. The accommodation was good even though we paid for a view...

I visited my family in Aqaba over Christmas and New Year. I got a great offer at Intercontinental Hotel Aqaba for a beach pass for 10 days including sauna. Thanks to Tareq Sammara and Ibrahim Kwaldeh for making my experience great.

What a marvelous stay. As always, your establishment was most hospitable: I loved everything, starting with the staff, the facilities, and the overall hospitality. I happened to visit before Christmas, and I delighted in the decorations. My room and its view from the balcony were delightful. I especially enjoyed the beach.

To cut it short I would tell all the ambassador card holders to review the new rules before they renew their membership. I personally will never renew my membership. IT IS USELESS CARD. I will find better cards with better benefits

This should be a five star hotel, and yes they have good rooms and the lobby was beautiful but they came very short with the service they provide to make the stay comfort and enjoyable.

Very nice location with a beautiful view of the coast of Aqaba. Security it tight as its the last accessible property before the royal family's beach house and right behind that is the border with Eilat. Better to be safe anyway.
