Our 2nd visit to the Intercontinental, Hurghada was in December 2009. This hotel is our favorite of the 7 Hurghada hotels we have stayed in.
I really cannot think of anything that is worthy of complaint. Location was good (along the new promanade), outside the hotel is surounded by shops, yet its quiet. Rooms are large with balcony. Excellent selection of bars, restrants and food on-site. Every day dinner has a different theme Egyptian, Italian, International, Tex-mex, French, Asian.
Service was second to none, very helpful and friendly staff. Private beach is very close. It has a dive centre on-site. We would not hesitate to book there again.... and we certainly hope to.
