We have been to this hotel for five years, it gets better and better each year we go. It is in an area were the locals live so looks run down as you approach but once outside it gets better. The reception is small but friendly and the grounds are kept immaculate. Try and get the rooms near the tennis courts looking out over the bay. The hotel is on the cliff top so the views are spectacular especially in the evening as the sun is setting over the Siani mount ions. Go to the terrace bar for this it is fab. There are two restaurants right next to each other and you can go into either even if your table is in the other one. There is lots of choice for starters, main and pudding.
In the other they make pizza fresh with your schlock and the same with pasta.
The staff are friendly and helpful .
The beach is either down stairs on the cliff or down the lift both have great views. The beach is long for Sharm about a couple of hundreds meters which is good as you don't seem to be crowded. The sea is warm and you can walk in as the is only sand and no Corel.

Room Tip: Get a room near the tennis court. Great views from your door

I'm always staying in this hotel when in Hurghada. The staff is always very helpful, the service is excellent, they are continuously keeping the hotel and rooms cleanliness standard.

It's important to mention that the hotel is far from downtown, though usually you wouldn't need to go there. For me it is not an issue since I always go there by car.

We stayed here in march 2010, such a lovely hotel spotlessly clean, food was amazing buffet style or there were 2 a la carte restraunts one beng Chinese which was also lovely. Breakfast there were omelettes made in front of you and a full English if you wanted it and pancakes also made in front of you. All the staff were very helpful and friendly our room cleaner used to make us towel animals every day put fresh flowers on our bed, one day he made 2 dolls using bedding and our clothes and positioned them sat in the chairs so cool. Weather was so hot it was lush, the trips we organised through our hotel rep we did the valley of the kings and Machmaya island snorkelling. The pool area was really nice always free beds and clean towels pool bar open all day serving burgers chips hotdogs etc all freshly made, you can probably tell I am a foody. Any questions don't hesitate to ask. Sam

Last week I had 4 days off and wanted to spend it on the sunny beach. I had not choices because of flights, visa and etc. thus I choose Egypt. It was my first time in Egypt and in Albatross Beach Resort Hotel.
There are a lot of positive and negative reviews you may find in Internet about all hotels in Egypt. And it's not easy to choose the right one - I looked for the 1st line hotel with sandy beach, less Russian speech, not far from airport. All other thing like food, what kind of alcohol, animation I didn't care. Based on all my wishes I choose Beach Albatross Resort Hotel.
For whom it may needs:
It's 10 minutes from airport. It has sandy beach, easy to get in the sea. A lot of Russians, but I didn't feel it much because it was not peak season.
For hotel staff:
I believe that in spite of a lot of tourists you have, you take care about your reputation and want them to come back and spread a good word of mouth about your hotel. But:
- Do you think it's a good way to meet your guest let them waiting for check-in up to an hour? I was impressed by a man shouting on a manager in the lobby - he had been waiting for 1 hour with young children, while the people who came with me were checked in faster him. You will not earn all money hoping that people will pay for fast check in but you will loose more. All your guest have a long flight and great desire to get to the sunny beach while you stop them in your lobby. Be smarter)))
- I do business and while I'm on a vacation I need to get access to Internet, check my emails and etc. But I was surprised - there was no free Wi-Fi access for the hotel's guests. You should pay 10$ for an hour access with slow Wi-Fi connection. Everybody has electronic devices, social network accounts, emails and so on. Let people share the photos of their vacation in your hotel right from your hotel lobby for free. Let it be free at least at your lobby.
- You have a beach volley - it's a good. But did you play on that field slightly covered with sand? Look at the knees of all that guys who are playing right now, they are broken.

Finishing my review I'd like to say once again: they are in 10 minutes ride from the airport, has sandy beach. And I wish I could say they have fast check-in so you don't need to wait until sunset, they have free high-speed wireless Internet so you could share the pictures of your best vacation with your friends, they have best beach volley field so if you like it you should go there.



Thank you.

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 .

Room Tip: All the rooms are similar but noisy ones are in the main building so choose a garden room for peace...

The best choice from a careful trawl of all inclusive holidays in the area regards price, BUT this is a hotel almost exclusively used by Russians and Germans. There are no English tours out of here and children's clubs are run in Russian. Smoking indoors seems the norm, and very loud 80's disco music and karaoke all evening. The restaurants promise a variety of fare but the food is poor with occasional flash of quality. Overall stodgy and thrown at you with a staff that seem demoralised and disinterested bar the odd one or two who were superb and utterly professional, ironically the lower eschelons, cleaners and some waiters ( Ibrahim poolside -superb).
Management however are brusque, obstructive and unhelpful, at times child like in their attitude to problems with scant regard for customer service.
The beach is busy and the diving and spa touts are persistent and tiring. Snorkelling is poor from the beach and day trips snorkelling are around 30 euros.
Forget day trips to Luxor, a ridiculous tourist trap with 10 hours travelling for a few hours sight seeing, around 80 euros. A better idea is to hire a car and stay over in Luxor, much better and a reasonable drive, but avoid driving after dark. petrol is very cheap.
Overall a hotel that suits those who like sun, drink, cigs and a bar sing song. A hotel thats short on sophistication, variable food, but with nice grounds, and clean rooms. This hotel caters almost exclusively to the Russian taste, vodka and whiskey on tap and fast food for the sun lounging masses. If you are British choose somewhere else is my advice especially if you have children who need catered for.

Room Tip: Avoid the sales pitch on arrival to upgrade you to a sea and pool view (20 euros a night), its a rip...
