2 years late but better late than never.
4 of us came to the hotel back in April 2011 and initially were given average rooms. After explaining the faults of the room we were upgraded to a suite for 4 people, pool view and things just got better and better from there!
ALL of the staff were EXTREMELY pleasant, especially the manager at the White Elephant restaurant. The hotel was INCREDIBLY clean as well as the pool, garden areas, restaurants etc....
Night entertainment was rather limited but the reps were full of energy, fun, and very happy. When I went back in 2011, they were in the process of building the stage in the middle of the complex so hopefully it's built now for the night time entertainment.
I agree with the reviews regarding the Russian & German guests - there were quiet a few and I'm not sure that they'd seen Black people before as they constantly stared at us. We took it in our stride and the staff at the Albatros more than made up for this.
We got massages etc at the spa - such a great experience, and I would happily return again.
