A perfect place for relaxing and charging your batteries. The hotel has a nice pool and an even nicer reef. We had read some of the negative reviews about the food which had lowered our expectations. Upon arrival we were both positively surprised. When it comes to the prices for food and beverages it's not the slightest higher than on any other five star hotel I've stayed at. The staff is extremely friendly and committed.

Since the area around Port Ghalib hasn't been fully developed yet it feels a bit like a ghost town. Perfect if you want a nice and quite vacation but don't expect any night life.

    This is a very good hotel ,it seems new as well. It is huge with a big lagoon and multiple pool, would be great retreat after a diving trip or just going there enjoying the resort.
    It is also close to the airport (less than 10 min) and walking distance to the Marina , where u can find some shops (food..etc) and Scuba .
    The hotel stuff is very friendly and rooms and spacious and clean.
    I would recommend this hotel

    This hotel really lives up to its name ("the Palace"): You are king of the castle and you will be treated as such! The team at the InterContinental is really doing everything possible to give you an unforgettable stay! The service is of an inimitable high level. Other hotels (worldwide) can still learn something!
    The hotel exudes luxury, the rooms are big, the location very well maintained, the buffet has a different theme every night (Indian, Oriental, bbq), the level of housekeeping is very good.
    But above all, we enjoyed the peace and quietness. Because it is not all-inclusive formula, and slightly more expensive, a different kind of tourist is visiting this hotel and you can enjoy your holiday in peace and relax. An absolute must for those who desire peace and luxury, and want to be taken care of during their stay!

    I was in Port Ghalib for the Eastern holidays this year and last year 2012.
    I want to congratulate the InterContinental hotel with his great staff at the beach.
    Especially Taher Yassen and his crew ! He was always ready to help whenever help was needed.
    Information, first-aid, snorkling lessons, swimming etc... Everything you ask for, he will do with a smile He's one of the many people ( including his co-workers) that makes you are enjoying your stay at the beach even when it's cloudy weather !
    Keep up the good work and take care of yourselves !
    To the management of the hotel : This is a keeper !
    Already i make reservation for november 2013.
