What a fabulous hotel. The staff are extremely welcoming and remain so throughout the duration of your stay, in fact, truth be told, they couldn't do any more for you. The hotel is spotless and the rooms are a ver good size. The entire hotel and surroundings are geared towards ensuring that your comfort is an absolute priority. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

Room Tip: Try and get a room that faces the water. The road side can be a little noisy with traffic on occasio...

Just got home after a 7 night stay at the Intercontinental in Abu Dhabi. We had a lovely time - hotel was stunning, bed was really comfy, private beach, large selection of places to eat and unlimited supply of bottled water (which is greatly appreciated in the heat!). The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Hotel is not quite in the centre but a taxi to the mall costs around £2. I would highly recommend this hotel and look forward to visiting again in the future.

Spacious rooms, a short walk to the beach. Great hotel! Be warned though that there is nothing outside of the hotel unlike some locations I've visited so you are tied to the hotel. The food was a little pricey but there is a wide selection of places to eat to suit all tastes. The best place is Chamas, the Brazilian rodizio restaurant! WOW simply the best meal I have eaten in a long time!!

Soya milk is available for breakfast and there are gluten free options available in all of the restaurants. I loved my gluten free pizza in the pizza restaurant!

This was a short business trip but I would strongly consider returning for a holiday!

My ONLY serious complaint is the rooms NEED a tv channel guide so you know what channels are in English. It was a pain channel surfing every time

There is some building work by the beach area to construct a new pool area which will be amazing once finished but this does not stop you from sunbathing or having a swim in the sea.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the back of the hotel. I was on the front side and was woken by the Mosque pray...

I recently stayed at the Abu Dhabi InterContinental (May/June 2013). It had been almost 5 years since I last stayed there. The property has been transformed from an "ok" hotel, to a vibrant fantastic hotel. I really noticed a big difference in the food, the staff, the general feel of the property. The building and the grounds have not changed much, nor the rooms. I can only attribute the transformation to the management team. It is a really happy place, full of business and leisure travelers enjoying one of the most beautiful spots on Abu Dhabi Island. Dinner at the fish market was very enjoyable. New expansions at the marina are still under construction, but are expected to be completed by the end of the year. I plan to return to this hotel on future trips to Abu Dhabi, whenever I have the chance.

Room Tip: Ask for Marina view high floor. The view is fantastic.
