This hotel is part of the Intercontinental branch and it really deserves this status. The food is perfect, tasty and lots to choose from (lunch buffet). The gym is well equipped. The rooms are big and clean, although a little bit outdated. What I liked the most, is the kind and helpful staff in this hotel. Would love to come back!
Over the top service. Friendly and personal. Excellent amenities. Very good gym with trainers. Nice pool, steam room and sauna. Jacuzzi was not working the two weeks I was here. Nice little beach area. Good restaurants. Only drawback is it’s a bit pricey overall.
Was here on a business visit for 3 nights. Checkin was perfect as we got the room much before the standard checkin time. Room was in the renovated wing and well appointed. In the night couldn’t sleep good. The room was an adjoining one with just a non soundproof door in between. Needless to say, the TV in the next room was just too loud. Didn’t bother to call the reception but the next day the same issue. Here’s the best part; on calling the reception they said no worries and within 5-7 minutes a new room was provided and a bell boy was even sent to help in the shifting! Great and efficient service indeed. Used room service for dinner once and then the buffet breakfast for the 3 days. Food is certainly good and well presented. I surely will be back.
My visit to Jubail was for business which left little time for exploring the hotel amenities or the area around it. Although, I did look out the window at the view and found it to be disappointing. I believe I saw a bit of water in the distance, and some my team members did assure me that a short walk was all it took to find it! However, the hotel itself was very pleasant and offered everything that my team and I needed. I enjoyed the space afforded in a suite; I actually found the bathroom off the sitting room area had a walk-in shower, which is my preference! My room was serviced well; I noticed accountability in place as an assurance. Most of my meals were at the buffet restaurant due to my schedule, options for breakfast and dinner were varied and tasty. I did try the Ranch Tex-Mex Restaurant on my last night and found the food excellent and plentiful! I used the conference room for several days and found the room to be well equipped and the area surrounding the room quiet. Wifi was not a problem anywhere within the hotel. I found the hotel personnel to be very accommodating and friendly, as well!
The Intercontinental Hotel in Al-Jubail serves an industrial area in Saudi Arabia, and even calls itself a "business hotel" but it is an international-class hotel with every amenity and a staff that is next to none in service. I stayed here for almost two weeks on an assignment and felt that I was in an international resort. The hotel has its own private beach set in a park, a huge fitness facility, steam room, hot tub, sauna outdoor pool with separate equal facilities for men and women. There are four superb restaurants. The rooms are a bit small, but they have every possible amenity for a comfortable stay, including a large shower with a rain-shower head in the ceiling, robes and a bathroom scale as well as a full set of cosmetics, luxurious towels and ultra-comfortable beds. I could not have asked for more. The staff was superbly trained, polite and dedicated to guest comfort. Al-Jubail is not a tourist mecca, but anyone coming to this part of Saudi Arabia would feel utterly pampered staying here. I will write a separate review for the A-Tuwayah buffet restaurant. Suffice it to say that this restaurant provides the most sumptuous spread I have ever seen. Breakfast is a dizzying array of Middle East, Indian and far-eastern cuisine as well as all Western standard offerings. This is definitely one of the best hotels in which I have ever stayed outside of a full-scale vacation resort.
I have stayed here for months at a time. The rooms are clean and spacious. The food is excellent in all areas. The staff are always polite and friendly. In particular, I would like to mention the following as giving outstanding, friendly and polite service: In the main restaurant: Noni (my stand in mother), Navid, Abdel Aziz, Yul and Ric. In the Ranch restaurant: Jamshed and Chirunjibi. Room service - Jasin. There are many more staff who deserve a mention but the list would never stop. I recommend anyone coming to Jubail to stay here.

I've been visiting the Jubail Intercontinental for more than 25 years. It's the premier hotel in the area and offers a good staying experience with good rooms, excellent service and good food. There's a private beach that offers a variable rate of freedom. I particularly enjoy the Tex-Mex restaurant, and I used to enjoy the perfectly prepared Douwe Egberts coffee which is no longer served. Wi-fi coverage and speed are poor. Nearby, there are some nice beaches and corniches including Nakheel and Fanateer and a couple small malls. Everything in the area is over-priced, including the hotel. The area is developed by the Royal Commission and has its own unique atmosphere.
The staff at the hotel are what makes this a wonderful, "home from home" stay. I regularly stay here on business and am always greatly impressed by the high standards across all aspects, but of particular note are the hotel's staff who are absolutely superb. The quality of the food is exemplary and the steaks in the Ranch Tex Mex Restaurant are as good as any high end steak restaurant when I lived in the USA of six years.
I had a wonderful experience at the Intercontental Al Jubail - the staff took such good care of me, especially the pasta chef at the lunch buffet! The beach area is gorgeous, and the property is very well taken care of and relaxed. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.
I like staying at this hotel. Pretty expensive, but since company supported, we managed to stay here. We were there for 3 weeks. The service is definately up to level. 1) Great laundry service 2) The rooms were nice in size and had a desk available. (There is a bit lack of fresh air, but that is due to the temperatures I would say) 3) Wifi was not the best, but we did used the free option... 4) You can walk outside 5) Staff is very helpfull. We were suggested to pay a 1 time fee which would give us free breakfast for the duration of our stay and we would be boosted up to Ambassador level. 6) The food in the restaurants are amazing; I truly love the Mexican restaurant, but the Lebanese mezze-offers are amazing as well. Room service is available. The buffet is a little over priced for my taste, but offers excellent quality of fish. The gym facilities (to train of that food) are of excellent quality as well. Would recommend this hotel, when in the neighbourhood!
