“Fantastic Holiday at Beach Albatros”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

First impression of the hotel on arrival was a bit shabby looking from the outside, but once we were greeted by the very friendly reception staff and made to feel very welcome, all doubts about the hotel soon faded. We were taken to our room number 7007 and were very happy. Nice clean, cosy accomodation with a perfect sea view right from our door. The bonus also was that we were right next to the restaurant! The staff were all very friendly in all areas of the resort. The food was tasty and there were several options available to suit all tastes. Animation team were all very friendly and tried their hardest to put on a good show each night, sometimes depending on the amount of people to take part. I did however find the Russian guests extremely rude. They were miserable, extremely obnoxious people. They did not queue for food like others and just barged in. A couple of times we witnessed them trying to fight with other guests. Apart from them, the holiday was fantastic. The views were fabulous, the sea was warm and crystal clear. There was entertainment on the beach daily. The only bad thing was the noise of the music being pumped out of large speakers whilst you were trying to relax in the sun. It was my Birthday when I was away and the staff made my day feel very special. I had a letter posted to my room with arrangements made to attend the restaurant at a certain time. There I was greeted with the biggest birthday gateau I have ever seen and all of the staff surrounding our table with bongo drums singing happy birthday in their quirky Egyptian style. The pool area was very clean. All in the stay was fantastic amd the staff were all amazing. Only downside was that the hotel did not have free wifi available, you had to pay and the strength was very poor so it was a waste of time. I will definitely go back to Beach Albatros and have already been recommending it to friends and family. Thank you Beach Albatros for a wonderful winter holiday and Birthday to remember. Hope to see you all again very soon.

got to the hotel at 8:30pm by 9pm we were sat in the restaurant having a very enjoyable meal,the service at the reception was excellent,bags taken to room all good,got up next morning to a fantastic sea view,sun shining so far nothing wrong,breakfast good,headed to the beach FANTASTIC!!!!!,warm clear water,beautiful colourful fish plenty of sunbeds,lunch time for the first few days we ate at the beach pizzas,chips,sandwiches no complants,then we dicided to eat at the main restaurant for our lunch we made the right choice,again couldn't fault it,evening meal excellent plenty of choice,the drinks very good,must give a special thankyou to mohammed from the club house bar he does a fantastic job still no complaints,animation team good, limited resources,again a special thanks to lucy she made us feel very welcome,my only gripe were the Russians my god they are ignorant,rude and very aggressive,on 2 separate occasions I witnessed them arguing & having to be parted,the food they take to the table at lunch & tea time is rediculas,they don't no how to que up like everybody else,for years people used to moan about "brits abroad"the Russians have deffinatly taken over,so apart from the Rs not a single complaint,deffinatly go back.

Room Tip: our room was 7008 fantastic sea view.

just back from a week in beach albatros. First impressions of hotel and reception were pretty poor then we walked out the back door and saw the resort and it was beautiful! lovely pool areas and the beach was amazing. The room was not to bad, had a bit of problems with our air conditioning but soon got it sorted. The staff were all amazing and made us feel very valued and treated us all fantastic. my friend even got a huge birthday celebration in the resteraunt. Only negative is that there is now free wifi and had to pay and wifi speed was rubbish. Would definately go back here and strongly recommend this to everyone!

We recently stayed at this Hotel during half term week, expecting to see lots of British people with their children, however we only saw two other british families in the hotel as we were surrounded by Russian guests. The Hotel overlooks the national park and is in a beautiful setting with amzing views of the sea. The Egyptian staff are very friendly and offer an amazing service. Our room was cleaned everyday with fresh bed linen and fresh towels, and even surprised with two swans made out of towels with flower petals on our bed. The food is good even though I think it caters more for the Russian guests however, my kids loved the fresh pizza's cooked to order every evening. I would like to make a special mention to Jenny and Chelsea who were part of the animation team who made a real effort to involve. Molly my youngest loved the mini disco and going to the childrens club and both of them had a real soft spot for Jenny. Although the hotel and grounds are lovely I do think the bedrooms need a refurb and modernising other than this it was a reasonably priced hoiliday in a lovely setting. If you want to go to the beach you have to be up at the crack of dawn to get a sunbed as all the guests from the Aqua Blu Sharm who have access to the beach take all the sunbeds as well as the Russians at 7am in the mornng this did not bother us as we were happy by the pool. I can not comment on the spa as we did not use this service.

Horrified when we arrived - reception was basic, and chaotic. First room we were offered was awful - extremely dated. To be fair they did their best to accomodate us, but the hotel was pretty full and therefore options limited. It was my first all inclusive experience and the food was pretty awful. Hotel was crowded and very noisy. That said, when we got into the swing of it and put the Butlins effect to one side, we actually enjoyed the holiday - the kids absolutley loved the small waterpark and the staff there were superb. Go if you have kids, are not expecting gourmet food and don't mind crowds/noise. Give it a miss if you are a couple looking for a romantic getaway.

Room Tip: get a room overlooking the pool. don't pay extra for a sea view as the beach is too far and the...

stopped here 29th September to 13th October 2013 arrived at beach albatross not good looking from outside but once through reception the hotel is very nice and clean . we had a sea view bungalow 3036 the view was brilliant. room small but kept clean every day by Mohamed lovely man . the only down side was the entertainment in la veranda bar the bar is open till 12 midnight and every night the music went of at 10.40 pm. there should be some low background music until the bar closes at 12 midnight. we asked the entertainment manager to leave the music on and his answer was that they had complaints of the people in the bungalows facing the bar that they had children in the rooms. lets not forget we are all on holiday and 12 midnight is when the bar closes. the music went to the beach at 10.40 pm and all you could here was loud music from the beach . to much techno trash the DJ did not mix the music at all. also did not cater for all the mixed people there . 95 % Russian and 5 % English. the food is good and all the staff are welcoming . A special mention must go to Mohamed blue shirt who served us every day at the pool and new what we wanted without asking . a brilliant barman he deserves promotion. also we must mention elambre at la veranda bar he kept our 4 rum and diet cokes with ice coming all the time we didn't even have to ask before we had drank up there were 4 more there as you have red there were 4 in our party the other bungalow was 3033. A good time was had by all 4 of us but the entertainment was very poor. beach was also great . would we return only if entertainment improved.

Room Tip: rooms numbered 7000 and above were best we were told .

We stayed at this hotel one week in the beginning of October and we really enjoyed our stay! The service was the best and especially the animation team made our holiday! It was so nice to chat with the members of the team, they are really kind and entertainful. We loved the food at Sea View restaurant there was something new everyday and something for every taste. The rooms are great and the hotel is spotless - so clean! We would like to return as soon as possible!
