Needs a major facelift

Posted Jan 5, 2017
Pros: Location across from Opera
Cons: Everything.
I am not one to be very critical of hotels, but Intercontinental needs a major facelift internally. It is a 3 star hotel by room, facility and food standards. The staff were more than courteous and helpful, very well trained. However, the restaurants' buffet (with flies all over the food), the barbecue, the bathrooms to name a few need an upgrade. It was a disappointing stay for a good location.

Lovely hotel with really friendly and attentive staff. Really close to beach (2 min walk) and also some nice restaurants on site. Delish breakfast buffet!

Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Smoking room in bar was not properly ventilated and didn't help much with smell filling the entire room

The hotel has nice pool and it's own beach access to a public beach. There is a small strip mall at 5 mins walk with good dining choices.
