Because it was impossible to travel to Sharm-el-S. we decided to visit Port Ghalib. Intercontinental was a good choice. Service is really fantastic, food (breakfast in our case) delicious & fresh. Staff very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping and personel on the beach also very professional. No all-inclusive-concept, which is great in my opinion (I don't like ai). Reef beautiful, but often too much wind to do a relaxed snorkel.
We felt at home, we were treated like princesses and felt spoiled ;-) Room is beautiful, beds very good, ibisses sat in our garden!
Also very good: never any asking for tips, (almost) no Russian guests, no irritating animation team, no loud music. All very stylish and chique.
Free internet provided in the bar. Hotel is within walking distance of Port Ghalib, where you'll find a few restaurants, bars and some shops.
Beach is shared with 2 Crowne Plaza resorts (ai-concept, beer and loud Italians being a consequence of this, but not really a problem).
I travelled with a friend. I woul advise this resort for rest-seekers, people who like to be spoilt in every way.
