We found Intercontinental a great hotel and can only recommend. The beach is not so great, though. All beaches on this cost are a bit rocky and with tough sand. Not like in the photos! Swimming pool is small. But the staff is great, super friendly and always trying to help. Food is great. We can recommend the Indian restaurant.
