We have just returned home after a 10 night stay at this hotel in two interconnecting rooms with our sons two sons (half -board). Polite and friendly service the moment we arrived from the porters outside and staff on reception desk. Lobby is beautiful, rooms are really clean and spacious- perfect to relax in when the temperatures outside were soaring high during the middle part of the day. It was a pleasure to use the large gym and the kids enjoyed the squash courts and swimming pool. The white sandy beach is just a walk across the marina. The sea water is warm, clean and idyllic. The food at the Selections restaurant was of outstanding quality and variety. The restaurant staff were attentive to our needs. The concierge team were helpful in arranging our sightseeing while in Abu Dhabi. All in all, our stay at this hotel will be a memorable one.

We had this hotel at a very attractive rate through BA 's sale in May and stayed for one week with two teenage children. We had previous experience of this hotel and others in the region, so we had clear expectations and this warm, well-sized hotel certainly lived up to them. Yes, there are newer, flashier hotels in the city but the Intercon occupies one of the best sites and it is much better on the inside than its exterior suggests. The lobby is classy; the rooms well furnished for all your needs; the restaurants serve attractive,varied food; the facilities from health club to pool to beach (fantastic upgrade on the way) are ideal; and the levels of service are extremely high. The staff really are delightful - unobtrusive and always smiling. Abu Dhabi is well worth an extended stay and this hotel is great value while you are there.

We arrived tired and weary on 17th july and were met by smiling genuine staff. we were given an upgrade from club to an extremely nice suite on the 14th floor. The hotel is undergoing extensive changes to the beach and harbour areas but they in no way intrude onto the ability to enjoy the wonderful white sandy beach and pristine waters of the sea. beach towels were plentiful and ice cold bottles of water always available. The hotel is an older style building but with a prime location for the sea, shops and views. our room was always magnificently clean with daily fruit dishes, newspapers, toiletries, chocolates etc. The house keeping was outstanding and the bed and pillows to die for. Selections restaurant was where we ate most meals with a vast array of foods for every taste all perfectly presented. What makes this hotel so magnificent is the staff from the top echelons to the lower levels, all working as a team and genuinely attentive and caring. We were staying for seven days and made ourselves decide to return next year for two weeks hopefully in may. In every respect Abu dhabi is far more relaxed than its neighbour Dubai, and Ramadan had little effect on our holiday with even the truly magnificent grand mosque open for all to see and be guided around. Even during the fasting times meals were discreetly available to non-moslems. All in all this hotel is one that my wife and I felt totally at home in with amazing staff, terrific food, and tremendous accommodation.When everything is completed this hotel will be six star and rightly so.

Room tip: pay a little extra for an upgrade or choose a high floor facing the sea, beach, pool and harbour area.

Hotel is located near the Jumeirah Hotel and Emirates Palace. It offers an own beach and a nice pool. Nice large rooms and outstanding room service. There is a free shuttle to one of the major shopping malls in Abu Dhabi.
