We had a wonderful time. The hotel is faultless, all the staff are very professional and attentive, particularly Vincent at the pool and restaurant; also the pool attendants. We will definitely be back later this year or in January 2017. Our room 1416 was excellent.

This is my 3rd or 4th stay in the hotel. Excellent customer care and hospitality. The reception staff offered us a complimentary lunch/ snack at check in as our room was still being cleaned at 3:30pm. This is a perfect example of proper guest service in the hospitality sector. Mistakes/mishaps are bound to happen in a large property. A great...

We recently stayed at the Intercontinental Abu Dhabi for a week's 'winter sun' holiday, booked through Expedia. The hotel is a slightly older property compared with some of the more modern glass skyscraper buildings in Abu Dhabi but is still an impressive site when arriving. The lobby is very spacious with great decorations and fittings and gives an immediate impression...
