I stayed in this hotel for three nights in May. I was in a business trip. The overall experience of the hotel was very good. Any queries were answered quickly and efficiently by a very attentive staff throughout the whole hotel. The food at restaurant was excellent. So many choices. Very nice beach and good quality Wifi.

We've been to this really well led hotel now for the second time and again could find nothing to complain about. The rooms are well isoated and thus nothing disturbs your sleep at night. The food, no matter whether included in the booking or within one of the exclusive theme restaurants, was diversified and always delicious. Especially we enjoyed the...

The Hotel is one of the oldest hotels around the place but also one of the greatest. Everyone tries to help and make your stay unforgetable. The housekeeping is very good and Nishantha the housekeeper smiles every day. We will come back-serious!

Spacious room, great views, excellent service and a great breakfast buffet! The staff are attentive and helpful. Shuttle service available to two big malls close by with drop off and pick up. Small details like the scent in the air and fresh orchards give the hotel that special touch.

Are due to so many staff at the Intercon Abu Dhabi, they are (almost without exception) fantastic. I will mention by name John (bell boy) who is always charming, efficient, helpful and friendly and that's no mean feat when you're manhandling luggage in 40+C. I would trust him implicitly. I have never known John to be anything other than 100%...
