Awesome experience. Excellent staff, We were taken to our suites as soon we arrived. The pool and the beach experience Suites were just awesome. Chef Charu at the breakfast room made our dining experience awesome. Overall an amazing stay.

Stayed at the hotel with family. Accessible to the beach ... lovely beach restaurant. Son had a fun time. They also have a kids play room with someone to watch kids. Highlight was their staff. Very friendly, attentive and accommodating. From a beach standpoint preferred to Radison blue - since beach here is accessible and cleaner.

Went for dining at the famous melting pot at Intercontinental,which I have been wanting to go for soo long. Amazing food and lovely ambience. Really enjoyed it and not forgetting to mention the wonderful job done by Lachna,Vikas and Ajak. Once again kudoos to the entire team. Keep up the good job.

Exceptional service. Nice, clean, quite and beautiful resort. My kids had a great time. Highly recommend it. Worth every penny. Staff were extremely kind and polite. Restaurants were great. Loved the swimming pool.

I had booked this hotel as wanted to stay near the beach with the family. Hotel is a modern look shaped as a square with the center having a courtyard with lily pond and swimming pool. Staff were all excellent especially in the Melting Pot restaurant from the manager, Pranab. Who really served us well together with Ravi the chef and all the waiters, especially Shivam. Really gained weight eating at this place. Rooms were nice and spacious with a nice touch of sunken bath tub. Only downside of the room were the view as you only really get the view of the courtyard and not the beach or the sea. All the rooms are clean with good power outlets and enough cupboard space. Nice spa and swimming pool area. Beach is about 2 minutes away from the main hotel compound. Difficult to swim in the ocean as quite rough. Wifi is excellent with good speed. Overall nice break.

My overall experience in the hotel. Positive : 1) we had a great welcome and they greet everyone in my family with a smile and juice. 2) Check in and checkout was smooth. 3) I booked three room for 6 people in my family and they had a great day. 4) rooms where clean and room service in cleaning the room and arranging things where good. 5) Entry to the beach area is in walk able distance and the restaurant in the beach is good. 6) we got a silent room but there where local events in the hotel that was bit disturbing but the room has a proper noise proof so you wont even hear single sound inside the room. Negatives : 1) I've requested the food that they are going to provide should be with 100% care and quality of the food to be good because my wife is pregnant. But the first time when we entered the restaurant for evening snack and coffee we are provided with coffee soured milk (spoiled milk). That's it we lost interest about the food and quality. 2) The vessel we provided the coffee with was not cleaned properly. We are aware its brass cup and its difficult to clean but still if they cant keep it clean then they should not offer that to customers. 3) The restaurant for morning breakfast was good but its was fully occupied with the wedding event group we had to wait for 30 minutes to have breakfast in the morning. later when we spoke to the restaurant in charge they took the bench from outside restaurant and the placed in inside the restaurant without cleaning there where birds poo in the table but not fully cleaned. 4) After all these incident we decided to have food outside the hotel so we travelled 1 hours up and down to hotel to have food everyday. 5) We are advised to come only with swim suit or nylon cloth for swimming. We where in cotton shorts but they said cotton shorts will absorb the chemicals so we went out and bought new shorts to swim. 6) we where two per room and 6 in 3 rooms so we request to get extra toiletries in each room for two people. We made request on phone and i waited for more that one hour and i didnt get any call regarding that. later when i rang them they said they cam to room but no response in room later they said give me two min will send you and this time i waited outside the room for more than 45 min none came and when i rang them again they said we came and no one there.. i asked them check the cctv i was waiting outside the room but no one came and they laughed. (Strange) Due to food was not hygiene and ruined out whole stay my overall rating for this restaurant will be 2 out of 10

A two night stay began with a warm welcome for the Security, concierge and the front desk. Were escorted to the room which was ready on arrival. A suite facing the sea. Rooms in the Hotel surround the water bodies and the swimming pool. Staff try to be very attentive save the day it is saturday night and sunday morning due to the heavy rush. The drawback is the weather which in end june also is hot and humid.

Very nice property adjoining the beach. Direct access to beach from hotel. Good swimming pool. However during week ends the pool can get busy. Very nice ambience in the hotel. Very large property, spacious, good space to walk inside the hotel or on the beach, a good gym. Nice large rooms. Very spacious. Food is good but expensive. Good service from staff. Enjoyed the holiday...

I start by saying as we reached in hotel after all day traveling reception no one was even bothered to offer a glass of water and my little girl who was thirsty had to go and ask for water. The security at beach is very rude This happened when we went to beach and went to sit on one of the lounge chairs all of sudden this security guard(Nav Kishore or Name Kishore) comes and loudly tells us the chairs are for guest and are we guest?? We said yes we are, then he says are you paying guest at the hotel ? We were appalled by his behaviour , so we went to give this feed back to duty manager Ms.Pallavi , she tried to brush this off with a meaningless apology and said she will look into the same , but till our checkout next day we did not receive any update. The rooms are dull, depressing NOT vibrant , the good thing about the hotel is the proximity to the beach .Hotel NOT worth the money!!!

When we came to stay at inter continental we didn’t know how cool this place was. Although the architecture is a suprise because it is super modern and unlike the other resorts on this stretch. It is the exceptionally friendly staff that made our holiday. It seems that everyone who works here LOVES their job. All the waiters are very invested in great hospitality and we felt very well taken care of. We felt genuinely welcomed and smothered by intelligent and empowered staff. We find this impressive and worth coming back for.
