My new husband and I came to Abu Dhabi for our honeymoon. We chose this hotel because I had stayed 10 years earlier on a family holiday and loved the beaches and hotel. This time was even better than last time. We went in May and the weather was amazing. This time there were more swimming pools and outdoor spaces...

A most amazing meal at the famous Intercon Fish market. The food pics speak for themself and washed down with a great bottle of Chilean Cab Sav. Nice quiet atmosphere, great service and the fish bite appetizers hit the spot too. Highly to be recommended.

The Abu Dhabi Intercontinental Hotel was the perfect site for our week long stay this July. We decided to opt for all-inclusive, and I would recommend doing the same because it is worth the expense. With six restaurants to choose from including Italian, Japanese, Lebanese and even a Belgianesque café, we made sure to dine at each and left satiated...
