The intercontinental in Taba was a great place to relax, room was lovely,in fact for us the only thing we had to moan about was the food, but not all food, breakfast was great as was lunch but dinner was a let down.Maybe our timing was wrong as we were told food like everything else came from Cairo and at this time Cairo was having trouble.Apart from this, a great holiday, seems to be the best hotel in Taba from what we seen.Shopping Centre was mostly closed,again we think because of the troubles.Would have NO PROBLEM going back .
Love Egypt.

Before coming to this hotel I have read loads of reviews on this page and I couldn´t understand why people would come 3 or 4 times back to the same hotel. There are many things to see all around the world, aren´t there. But I have to admit after visiting Intercontinental I would come back again straight away without hesitating. Choosing this hotel was by far the best choice in comparison to the other hotels lying around.
Everything in this hotel is so organised and working perfectly well. What is more and from my point of view very important is that the staff people are very friendly, chatty and funny (especially Sheriff, Mondy, Alaa and of course DJ Valentino, all these people made our stay even better even though it was perfect enough beforehand).
The rooms are very clean, spacious and furnished so lovely in every detail. We had a nice seaview room but this of course depends on where you are situated. Concerning the food, I love trying new things and trust me you have wide choice there from healthy and light food to culinary pieces if you are not very strict or picky in your diet. Not talking about the desserts, I wish I had tried them all. But this is unfortunately impossible if you don´t want to get as fat as hell.
This hotel is perfect for people who want to get a breakaway from everyday stress and busyness of our lives. It is also perfect for the families with the kids. But anyhow I believe this all depends on what time of the year you come though. So it could be also busier if you decide to come at peak´s season .
Perhaps there are some little things the hotel might improve. There is a one-meter wide stone-strip separating the beach from the sea. It might make it sometimes quite hard to get to the sea. So I think it would be better to get rid of this. And they could play some light music on the beach which would create a better atmosphere.
Some people will always find critics but if you are down to earth you will simply say this hotel is perfect. If I get a chance I will come back for sure without any doubt. Once again it was perfect and unforgettable holiday. And if you want to experience the same as me you have no choice but to choose INTERCONTINENTAL.

Hi Adele!
We are all so happy that you had a fabulous vacation with us! Hope to see you back for sure! Make sure you take your friends... We will look after you!

Your comment for the beach is understandable.
Let us explain:
The house reef and the waters just off the beach are part of the nature reserve "red sea world" and hence protected by law to provide a beautiful habitat to stingrays, turtles and corrals in all colors. Surely you discovered the underwater world snorkeling? In order to protect those rare species the sand must not get closer than 2m from the waterline as it might destroy some of the marine life.
We are collecting rocks and remove them to as well as there is a break in the reef where our guests can access deeper waters...
In that way we can make sure that all of us can enjoy the beauty of nature & holidaying at the same time and also do so in future generations.
See you soon at the InterContinental Taba Heights Resort!

Have just returned from a weeks holiday in Taba Heights. This was my third visit to the Intercontinental and I love it there, it is so lovely and relaxing and everyone is so friendly. All the staff are very approachable and can't do enough for you, they all work very hard. If you are not happy or need something - then as someone said . . . 'JUST ASK'! they will want to make your holiday perfect.

The food standards are very high as is the cleanliness.

The Pool guys are great, as are the pool bar attendants, Hani, Alaa and Shief they are just lovely and work really hard. The Animation Team (Ushe, Turkey and Alex) were really active and worked really hard with an extensive programme. Aqua Gym is really fun too for both men and women, so give it a try.

Generally I agree with many of the reviews, so if you want a relaxing holiday, the Intercontinental could be for you.

just returned from 2 wks at Intercontinental. 1st class service, excellent food choice. This hotel ticks all the boxes for a relaxing holiday. The veiw from the Bayview Terrace is stunning. The hotel & gardens are immaculate. great sea views from the crescent rooms. this was our 4th holiday there & again not disappointed. If you like activitie there are daytime programmes & light entertainment at night but if all you want to do is relax this is the hotel for you. Quiet drink at The Lagoon bar watching the sun go down over the sea is lovely.The El Mar restaurant is exceptional quality with varied menus from fish to a great Ribeye steak. Make this hotel your only stay in Taba,you wont be disappointed. The Reef bar also caters light lunches if you dont want to go to the main dining hall. A great great hotel, try it for yourselves.........book it!!

Room Tip: just book a sea view room,fantastic

This was our third visit to the intercontinental. We decided to stay for a month this time, it was not disappointing, it was fab. Both management and staff could not do enough for us.The standard of food was very high,lots of choice.The food at the lagoon ,the el mar and the birds nest were delicious.,You will miss out if you don't try them all.There is also a bar b q at the lagoon twice a week which is excellent value.You guessed it we are foodies!Our room was upgraded as return guests. The rooms are spacious and very modern, the housekeeping staff are very friendly and have very high standards.The holiday was made very special particularly on our last day when it was Lynne's birthday, a wonderful end to our month.A special thank you to chris ,elias,and gilbert for your attention which helped make our holiday so enjoyable.17th May 2012-14th June 2012; not forgetting the help and service of Mohammed Esmat during our stay.
