“Wonderful break in the gorgeous sunshine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We stayed here in March this year. We loved every minute. The hotel is immaculate, the food and drinks were top quality and the service is excellent.

We booked a trip to Luxor with the hotel and it was a fantastic 1 day experience. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and he went out of his way to make sure we got the most out of our visit to the Valley of The Kings, Temple of Karnak and the monument of Queen Hetchupsut ( I'm not entirely sure you spell these names like that but it's been a few months ago now!)

The hotel is probably the best 5 star I have ever stayed in. There are lots of extra touches like an outdoor kids cinema screen, coffee lounges serving real coffee and cakes ( all included) a doughnut and a pancake station and lots lots more.

There is something for everyone here and if you don't enjoy yourself then it's down to you, not the Royal Albatross and their hard working team of friendly but professional staff.

As a frequent traveller I always read many reviews before deciding on where I would like to stay, the Royal Albatros Moderna in Sharm El Sheihk is where we returned to this year (seven years since my first stay) and we were delighted at the first class customer service we received, I would like to thank Joseph Spendlove for helping to make our stay here very enjoyable, Joseph ensured we had a room in the heart of the activity, this helped my 10 year old grandson make friends, we felt he was safe because we could see him in the activity pool from our room.

The hotel complex has indeed undergone many changes since our first visit, and these were for the better, although I loved the hotel the first time we stayed there, the pools are fabulous, there is the main activity pool, the heart of all the fun takes place around this pool, if you would like a more peaceful holiday, then relax by the relaxation pool, and know one bothers you at this pool, then there is the heated pool, a real gem if you just want silence to soak up the sun and have a dip if you get too hot, at all the pools there are plenty beds so there is no real need to lay out towels early, although some still do. Then there is the aqua park, loads of beds for the adults while the kids have a fab time on the slides and flumes, big kids can enjoy this too (as I did) and its free!!!!
The many eating restaurants in the complex means that even the fussiest of eaters (as I am) will find food to eat, the choice is fantastic, there is even pancakes, crepes, doughnuts and melon in the evening, plenty to drink too.
There is the spa (which costs) if you want some real relaxing treatment, and the gym for those workout fanatics. All in all we had a fantastic holiday and I would recommend this hotel to my family and friends, I would love to have had one of the refurbished rooms, maybe next time.


Thank you to all the staff in and around the complex, they were friendly, polite and very helpful.

Have returned after a ten day stay at this wonderful hotel. Airport is nearby. We had a family room with two bedrooms which was very spacious on the top floor facing the pool as per my request. Great air conditioned rooms. Pool areas were great with enough sunbeds. The children loved the aqua park. They didn't even have to queue up for the slides. The food was good in all the restaurants with a lot of choice. Colombus, the coffee bar is brilliant with excellent service and is always open. The Animation Team were very good and always had a friendly smile on their faces. The room attendants were very helpful and always asked you to make sure everything was ok in the rooms. Overall we had a brilliant holiday in this great hotel and would definitely recommend it.

Me and my partner stayed in this hotel for a week in June 2013. We had a lovely holiday.
The hotel itself is very clean and pleasant. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. The complex is huge, the 2 pools are huge and the spa was great.
Our room was lovely, but we did email in advance to ask for a room with a sea view, which they happily gave us an upgrade from our promo room, which was very kind.
There was plenty going on throughout the day if you want activity's to do such as aqua aerobics, water polo etc.
A lovely hotel, my only complaint would be that the food was a little average and samey in the restaurants but i suppose for what we paid you cant really complain.
A great place for couples & family's wanting a relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: Email before hand to get a free upgrade room.

This was our 3rd stay at the hotel and as always its a pleasure to holiday there!! The hotel is the most fiendly and beautiful we have ever stayed at. Nothing is ever too much for the amazing staff. The staff on the beach, poolside, gardeners, waiters, chefs, room cleaners, bar staff, managers, animation team and security are fantastic. The guys who take the cases to your room are so helpful too - in fact - we have never found any members of staff who are not happy to help. The hotel is very cool and very clean. The beach and gardens are litter free and there is always someone working to make sure everything is perfect. There are little changes each time we go - little improvements which make the hotel even more wonderful. We had our birthdays while we were there and were treated to celebration song from the waiters - no idea what they sang but it was amazing!! A lovely chocolate cake completed the celebration (a gift from the management)!! The staff are outstanding especially Sharky, Mahmoud, Mohamed, Alah etc etc!! The restuarants are spotless and the food is varied there is always something interesting and tasty to eat. The only let down are the rude Russians!! But we will be back again soon I hope!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room by the beach or by the activity, kids or heated pools.

I can honestly say our 2 week holiday at the Royal Albatros was faultless. The quality of the rooms, cleanliness, food, aqua park, choice of activities and facilities etc way exceeded my expectations and are of the highest quality. The staff need a special mention - from reception to cleaners - every one is friendly, helpful and conscientious. There is genuine choice at all meal times because catering is not targeted at any one nationality, with several genres of restaurant to choose from - the Tagine with its fresh croissants and Egyptian bread are a must for breakfast and don't get put off by the sight of the 'Om Ali' desert in the evening - it tastes great..

Our goal was to enjoy 1 week of pure relaxation this summer, we decided on this the Royal Albatros Mederna. What turned out to be a brilliant decision as we enjoyed a relaxing break, this hotel is a gem and a relaxed friendly hotel which will not disappoint.

The good points:

1. Environment - everything was spotlessly clean.
2. Food - large choice of buffet type restaurants.
3. Ambiance - friendly helpful staff who couldn't do enough.
4. Activities - the large water park which is exclusive to this hotel.
5. Beach - private to this hotel, two large piers to view the see better.
