“Not bad for a 1st time visit”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

I just came back from a 4 days vacation with my family, we stayed at the Intercontinental for the first time and i have to say its one amazing hotel. The pools, beach, rooms everything. I do have some complaints though, some of the workers at the beach and the towel guy are really rude and disrespectful. We had a little problem with one of the workers at the beach over a table and it kinda ruined our day. Food isn't that good, even though the Intercontinental is pretty famous for its food but lunch is very poor. The food in the snack bar is really good though, same thing every day but its not bad, at least we ate something for lunch. Desserts aren't bad, breakfast and dinner are really good, rooms are very clean and spacious. We had a sea view room and the view was just amazing. The waiters are nice and helpful specially Barakat. If you care about entertainment a lot, don't bother going to the Intercontinental because the animation team does nothing. In general it was a pretty good vacation but some of the workers should be fired for their dis-respectfulness.

Room Tip: Go for a sea view room and/or the ones near the reception, they're close to everything

I have just been back from a two night vacation in Taba Intercontinental; a big hotel with nice grounds and pools, however we encountered three problems that reflect the way they deal with their customers:
1. We booked a sea view room through our agency (Rimal) and we were given a room on the golf court that did not meet what so ever our expectations. When we complained; the receptionist told us and our agency representative that due to the high booking on the first of May they had to downgrade a few customers including us.
2. The guy responsible for towels at the main pool responded in a very rude way when I asked to change the towels in the afternoon, he said towels are given only once a day and I had to take them with me wherever I go all day long.
3. A small table in my room was covered with a piece of glass without fixation. With a minor hit from my kid it fell on the ground and was broken jeopardizing his safety. Upon check out I conveyed this notice to the receptionist and all of a sudden I found myself negotiating with him and his manager the price that I had to pay for that piece of glass, no one cared about the safety of my child and other children.
So in summary it is a big clean hotels that lacks human touch.

i was a little afraid because of some reviews i read here but thanks to Allah it was a great vacation in a great hotel that worth every single moment of the long trip from Cairo,our booking was all inclusive which is more than enough with all the varieties they gave in many bars and restaurants all over the day and the three main meals which was so much that we sometimes was skipping the lunch to be able to have dinner ,the oriental dinner on Friday was the best the much that makes my dad ask for the chef to thank him in personal !.. the animation was great and gives fun to all ages ,my baby girl "2yrs" and not only her all the kids in the hotel was having a great time because of them and am so thankful :) , although there is not much to be done in taba it self like "sharm" for example the effort the animation and the hotel do makes u unneeded to bother ur self by searching for trips our activities to be done outside the hotel ! ..the shows everyday was made in a very nice style away different from all i saw before , the receptionist from the first moment gave us the best impression by being welcoming and very decent that they even upgraded for us without even asking ! .. the people in the restaurant was also very helpful and serving with all they can except for a very few .. the kids area over the sea is very nice, it will be better if u putted a guard over the 2 baby pools as well and the pool inside the spa will be better if heated !, we loved the free shuttle bus service to the wekala shopping area u provide .. many more to be said actually :)...thanks alot for the great time we have

Room Tip: i recommend a high floor room in building N.1 with a sea view .

This hotel is the worst ever, I've never seen such bad service before..the room service staff are horrible and disrespectful and they never get you what you ask for..As for the food, it's tasteless and of a very low quality, the restaurant is the dirtiest I've ever seen although this is totally the guests' fault, also there is a huge misunderstanding of the word all inclusive and full board!!! The drinks are for free only outside your room and only untill 11 pm..add to that the zero entertaining animation team or I don't know what is their job actually!! They are lame and boring..All in all it was a very bad experience that I lost 2 kilos after staying there for 3 days!!!

Each and every time we return to this hotel we have nothing but praise for what has become our second home. No matter how busy or at the moment very quiet due to many Tour Operators pulling out of this area and also unfounded fears of visiting Taba Heights, each and every member of staff never change their attitude towards the guests and continue to strive to attend to your every need, no matter how small. Yes, at this present time you do have to fly to Sharm and take a road journey to Taba however, the 3 hour journey is well worth it when you arrive and find this tranquil spot. Whilst we truly hope that the Tour Operators will return so as we may land at Taba Airport nothing will stop us from returning to this beautiful place when we truly hope it will be able to impress you as much as it always has us.
Perhaps you would wish to read our previous 13 reviews!

We came to the hotel with a reservation for a sea view room . The guy came to take us to the room he just pointed us to where our room was which was along walking distance while we were loaded with our luggage NOBODY offered us to take the luggage which is not what a no "star hotel " would do!!!! The tragedy was the room we reserved had nothing to do with sea or any kind of water!!! We went back to the reception telling them this is not what we asked for then they came up with what so-called front view room !!! Which is the room that will be in front of the sea!!!!! Can u believe this!!!!! Be careful when u ask for sea view room in intercontinental taba ..here we are hangging in the lobby

Spent 3 days after buying full board packages for 16 persons. It started from the worst greeting to towels requests which never been entertained. People here like tips but never show respect, they always complaint and here you will be able to see the same staff from early morning till midnight. The exhausted staff were very rude and not attentive at all. The dishes and glasses were never clean enough "disgusting".
Here you will here a lot of criticism from unsatisfied staff who were never able to accomplish there duties without accidents and bangs. The staff lacked minimum ethics and I doubt they were trained at all. The food was below average and the restaurants were so chaotic and not clean.
The lifts had no sensors and closed on us, the night shows were cheap.
