We stayed at Intercontinental Hotel for twelve days and ate here every day for breakfast and lunch, twice for dinner. There is a vast selection of choices and they vary every day for lunch and dinner. Try the great breakfast juices an drinks. Coffee is good too. A necessity for us every morning. Service was great, waiters ploute and attentive.

We recently stayed for a week half-board in the Intercontinental Hotel so made use of 'Selections' twice a day, for breakfast and dinner. Have to say that we couldn't really fault it - the service was good and there was a nice variety of choices during the week. There are various theme nights - 'roast', 'Asian' etc. with the best...

The wide selection and quality of different cuisines available at the buffet is impressive. The staff are friendly and were happy to help with any request we had. A thoroughly enjoyable meal in a great atmosphere with a nice location offering sweeping views of the bay area.

We stayed in the hotel for a week. The breakfast was good, although there is no variation in the dishes. However, where this place really falls over is for dinner. The selection was poor (and I think actually just left out from Lunch), the meat was over cooked and the curry was tasteless - which is odd given the chef... More
