Amman, Jordan
Reviewed yesterday NEW

The Intercontinental Aqaba is my one and only choice for vacation, weekend and business trips. All staff works hard to fulfil all my needs for relaxation and business meetings and conferences. The hotel offers many options and choices for very reasonable prices. All friends, family members, colleagues and business partners I took there enjoyed their stay and will come back.

The hotel was good and the room was very comfortable with a great view. The Lebanese restaurant was superb. But this was an expensive night in Aqaba, as we stayed over the Easter period. The beach area is pretty good, but I had no intention of going in the sea due to the litter floating in it and the loons...

This is a nice hotel. Not spectacular, but nice. The food in the hotel is also good, not great, and incredibly expensive. If you stay here, I'd recommend eating elsewhere. The pools are nice and the hotel has a good beach with great water activities.

We spend Easter at the InterContinental Aqaba Resort and were pleasantly surprised by the courtesy of staff and level of service.

Everything worked as it should, rooms and public areas were spotless, and all this made the stay good. There was nothing that would have exceeded my expectations (which of course where high for a 5* hotel) - it was more or less as expected. The only small thing was that breakfast got really crowded and noisy during the weekend mornings....

Our visit here was for 3 nights, which were all good and we enjoyed the stylistic and accurate design of everything. One point which was dissapointing was the breakfast in our last day where many visitors were in the hotel, and the breakfast team couldnt handle it. For example, we waited nearly half an hour in line for the scrambled...

Stayed for a night in Aqaba with family. Beautiful and clean resort with enthusiastic and helpful staff. Had family room which was really spacious with a double bed, single bed and sofa bed. Swimming pools were large and clean. Small beach with a beach bar and cafe. 5 minute walk to the city centre.
