Went there to spend the day buy the beach. Staff was extremely helpful and welcoming. At our service was Motasem who brought us back to the great old Intercontinental service. Nice to children and adults and very efficient in his service. Great gentleman and great service.

As soon as we received our room we noticed how dirty it was, there was dust everywhere and the bed sheets where disgusting you could tell they where not washed and you could see stray hair on them, also the carpet was filthy. Other than that we enjoyed our time at the beach.
