We really enjoyed the stay at the InterContinental hotel Abu Dhabi , I would like to thank Bader and Arvin in the reception and all the team, the beach was nice even if it was only 3 hours but we understand that this is authority rules and we respect that the view of the room was nice overlooking to the marina.
