Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nadoosh A Pleasant stay
We had a very nice stay at the hotel. The staff were very helpful and did their best to accomodate our needs. My kids loved the pools and the beach here, but the water could have been a bit warmer as the whether was a bit cold in the mornings and evening. Breakfast was lovely and had a wide range of options, dinner was good too. The only set back is that the AC in the room didn't work properly and so the room was too hot. It was very late at night when we became really uncomfortable with the temperature and I didn't want maintanance coming into my room in the middle of the night, so I didn't report the issue. Yet, all in all, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely do it again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jordan25 A little bit of luxury on the Red Sea.
I would highly recommend the Intercontinental Aqaba resort to anybody visiting the area. The hotel is visually stunning with a large swimming pool and a private beach which is viewed from the moment of entry giving the hotel a wow factor! I found the staff very friendly and attentive, from the cleaners wishing me good morning to the director of rooms enquiring about how our stay had been. Travelling with a 2 year old we made use of the kids room facility and pool side entertainment from the animation team. My only negative would be is that the children's shallow pool was freezing cold. The hotel is ideally situated to stroll into town. Without doubt we would definitely stay again if visiting the area.

The staff at the Aqaba Intercontinental is extremely friendly and helpful. They made us feel at home from the very beginning which, travelling with a six-year-old daughter, is very important.

I think that the employees are very professional and pleasant. They make you feel like home. Delicious as Burj Al Hamam Restaurant and nice variety at Lounge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FarnhamFlyer Enthusiastic team made our stay memorable
We stayed at the Intercontinental Aqaba in February 2014 with two young children - definitely recommend it & will certainly return. We had a nice welcome from the Front Office Manager when we arrived and our family was accommodated very well in a comfortable room with a nice view over the pool area. It's an easy walk to town with lots of restaurants, car hire places, etc.
On the first night, we received a platter of Arabic sweets and fruit on the turndown service - nice surprise. However, the kids expected the same on the 2nd night, but no turndown service....Room service could have been a bit quicker, but didn't detract from our experience. The robes & Intercon flip flops were good (and the flip flops useful for the Dead Sea a bit later in our holiday!#
The pool & landscaped gardens are lovely - although the pool was only heated on the Friday when it was very busy - which was a bit disappointing on Thursday when it was too cold. The beach has good sunbeds in canopied 'tents', the sea was very clear and clean. A highlight was the excellent & enthusiastic 'Animation' team who entertained the kids with creative games and activities. The daily 'dance session' at the pool side was great fun, and the 'spoon diving', face painting, etc. There wasn't much for older kids #eg. table football, WII, etc.# in the Kids Club room - but the team made up for this with the fun activities they lead. I was also impressed that they went round and personally talked to parents & kids around the beach & pool, to encourage them to join in.
The 'Games room' signposted on the 2nd floor was actually closed #maybe due to low season#, and it would be good to have some entertainment/ table football/ snooker, etc. for guests. There was some entertainment - dancing, band, etc. but this was quite late #9.30pm onwards# & not convenient when you have young children.
On Thursday, the staff told us about an Air Show by the Jordanian Royal Air Force which was going to happen. It was amazing with 4 aircraft similar to the British 'Red Arrows' - what a fantastic show, really spectacular, and seemed to be put on especially for the Intercon - I understand it's a regular occurrence.
The coolbox provided with ice & water at the beach was a nice touch, especially when this was delivered with towels to you rather than having to collect these yourself. Also, the pieces of fruit on the Friday.
Free WIFI for IHG members in the room was useful.
But... I was stopped several times at the poolside by staff checking I was actually staying at the hotel...I imagine some people just walk in to use the facilities, but it would be good for staff to recognise guests a bit more as it felt a bit like 'policing'.
If I had to mention any other negatives, I would say breakfast buffet price was quite high JD26/ adult #especially for young children who don't eat much, even at 50% discount#. And it would have been good to have some watersports included free of charge, or more information on snorkelling in the area.
Overall - lovely hotel, great location, nice beach & pool, some lovely staff. Kids haven't stopped talking about it & can't wait to return. Thanks!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AnttiHKI Good service, nice beach and pool
The breakfast buffet was great and well worth the price. It was not the busiest week of the year, so quite often, you could have the pool all to yourself. Wireless LAN covers the whole resort, even on the beach you would have a good reception.

When i first came into the hotel i felt so warm, great reception and it was full of light, the staff they were very friendly, they were smiling and caring, concierge did a great job, guest relation was great and he helped me a lot during my stay,
receptionist wooow they were the best I've ever seen,
operator you can hear his smile over the phone, ive never seen any positivety like the one i observed in intercontinental aqaba, if you feel down and you want to forget everything behind you just go there and leave everything behind you.

The intercontinantal - aqaba is a great place to visit and have a nice vacation there.
The sleeping beds are so comfortable and the rooms are cleaned from time to time to ensure the visitors comfort.
what makes the hotel special, is the design of the pools and the great pleasure one's have on the beach.
