We were part of the Caravan Tours group that stayed at this hotel for 2 nights.
The Intercontinental Hotel has a real nice huge lobby with a bar and someone playing piano. Our room was on the second floor not far from the elevators. In our room we could hear the piano being played in the evening in the lobby. We did find though by later in the evening our room was very quiet and did not hear any noise The room was good but I found the carpet made it look a little shabby. The beds were very comfortable for sleeping.The bathroom is quite small and the shower/tub is located right beside the door making it very inconvenient that you can’t open the door completely. The marble tub is also very deep so if you have mobility problems that could be an issue. There is a hair dryer. You do not need an adapter for electrical as their voltage is the same as North America. There is a mini bar fridge which we kept our own water and soft drinks in that we bought at the Auto Mercado grocery store in the Multiplaza shopping Centre across the street from the hotel. Just a note to get to the grocery store, go straight across parking lot of hotel, at fence you will see a gate. Just ring bell and hotel will buzz the gate open. Cross street but be careful as cars go fast. Just walk to your right, past people waiting at the bus stop where you will see a walkway to Multiplaza shopping Centre. Don’t go into the Multiplaza but just walk a short distance around the bend to your right and you will see the Auto Mercado grocery. You can get to the grocery inside the mall but if you ask anyone for directions I found no one can speak English. The hotel has free internet and also computers available. We found all staff very nice, pleasant and hospitable.
