Fodor's Review

Set on the finest stretch of beach along the entire Red Sea Coast, the InterContinental is the most imposing edifice in this low-key town. The decor in the main building is an over-the-top homage to the days when Egyptology was in its infancy, with gaudy Italianate styling and hand-painted panels depicting 19th-century scenes of Egyptian life. Thankfully, rooms are more sedate. The excellent sports programs here include a dedicated kite-surfing/windsurfing beach, and the Mark Warner Company, which specializes in sports and children's programs, runs the sports center. There's an excellent range of kids' club activities on-site.
