I booked the hotel as a last minute deal, and I am glad that I did. I needed to get away for a week, in November for some winter sunshine and total relaxation, and this is exactly what I got. The hotel is set in the Taba Heights complex and is right on the seafront. On arrival with a glass of refreshing drink, book-in took just a couple of minutes and the luggage was delivered to the room without delay.
The room was spacious with all the usual refinements that one would expect of an 'upper class' hotel. There were clean sheets on the bed every day, and clean towels as well. The standard of cleanliness of the room was very high.
With two outdoor pools, one of which was heated, plus the salt water pool, I was spoilt for swimming choices. Coupled with this was the sea which boasts the coral reefs for snorkling, which is a must for me, and again I was not disappointed.
Admittedly the restaurant was self service for all three main meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner, but the choices were sufficient for my needs, and I found the food to be well prepared. I have had other holidays in Egypt and the food at the Intercontinental was far superior to these. Nothing is too much trouble for the restaurant staff and when I asked if I could have museli for breakfast (it wasn't available on day one) it was provided for me. The waiters were friendly, and got to know my particular likes, and always greeted me in a cheery way.
In my opinion this is a hotel for relaxation.If you are looking for an action packed holiday, then this is not for you.
