Out of a ten day holiday three days were spent in stressful negotiations over rooms being incorrectly booked despite booking and paying six months earlier! The management were not only unhelpful but utterly obstructive saying we had to contact agents in uk using our mobile phone. This we did at great expense and at the cost of time spent actually enjoying the holiday.
The hotel is clean and well kept but the staff are miserable and de motivated with a couple of exceptions. The food is mainly horrific with only a pretence at choice. You have to queue to get food ,all self service in a canteen . You then have to try to attract a waiter to get your thimble of wine or small glass of watery beer. Everything is presented to you as though they are doing you a favour....... They are not as the all inclusive price is too high for amount or quality of food and drink on offer!
We were the only English speaking guests at the hotel and the main clientele group is Russian . This makes you feel very marginalised and could be isolating and lonely as everything is conducted in Russian!
We left and spent a couple of days in Luxor in the boomerang hotel. It was fantastic and what a contrast. Friendly helpful staff and fantastic food freshly prepared at a fraction of the cost charged by the albatros hotel.
In short a vacation at the albatros beach hotel is Not a holiday I would repeat or recommend .
