Reviewed February 17, 2014

We had a lovely 10 day holiday at the Beach Albatros hotel in February. The room was clean and comfortable, free use of safe and hairdryer was good, but a kettle for making morning tea/coffee would have been nice too.
The restaurants offered a good choice of hot and cold food but we avoided the whisky in the bar.
The animation team were all very good and we even enjoyed watching the kids' disco! (Usually to be avoided too) Fantastic snorkeling, just a shame the coral is not more protected.

So, not good when you initially get dropped off at the wrong hotel (Royal Albatros rather than Beach Albatros) then have to fork out 170 egyptian pounds to get a taxi to your right destination (even more disappointing that both hotels are in the same group - shame on your Royal Albatros for not making more of an effort to help us out, but hey ho!).

Upon arrival at Beach Albatros the reception area is not what we have come to expect when visiting Egypt (used to marble domed ceilings etc, etc whereas whilst clean and tidy a bit 'basic' looking).

However, through reception and into the grounds - wow! Spectacular cliff top location, beautiful gardens, lovely pools, huge beach area - great!

We could always find something to eat from the extensive buffet in both Sea View and the Italian Restaurant and the waiter service was outstanding - glasses being replenished, dirty crocks whisked away as soon as they are finished with - thank you Tarak you were a complete star - lovely lad, always smiling!

Rooms were clean and adequate - we had a chalet opposite the terrace bar which was handy for all the amenities - although looking a little tired - bathroom could do with a bit of a face lift.

Bar staff were excellent - Mohamed in the Terrace bar (Awlright!) and Ahmed in the Club House, again, no sooner were glasses emptied they magically topped up again!

Animation team were very professional - some great shows from Kimo and his team - happy to get you involved but no constant pestering re playing volleyball, darts, aerobics etc that we have experienced at other hotels.

'Hand' who works in the reception area was fantastic - saved us 20 euro as we were led to believe that if keeping our room on past 12.00 noon you had to pay up until 6 pm (46 euro) - he stepped in and said that we only need to pay for the time we needed (up until 3 pm) so only 24 euro - happy days!

All in all a great 10 day break - we would certainly consider returning (not something we say very often) - weather was fantastic, relaxed atmosphere - I'd certainly recommend sitting by the Relaxation Pool - and we met some lovely people!

NB I've marked the 'sleep quality' down a bit - nothing to do with the beds - very comfy - but we were sometimes woken quite early by the call to worship at a nearby Mosque.

Room Tip: Beach chalets are more convenient for amenities than rooms in the hotel (ours was described as havin...

My partner and I had a wonderful stay at Beach Albatros from 28th Jan - 5th Feb. We were unfortunate enough so be involved in a car accident on our way to the airport which meant we missed our flight and 2 days of our holiday! However when we finally arrived we were greeted by friendly staff and a fab meal in the Sea View Restaurant and soon felt totally relaxed. Our room was on the top floor and had an amazing view of the sea. Absolam who cleaned our room daily was lovely and would create works of art with our towels. The hotel grounds were extremely well kept with beautiful gardens and lots of lovely places to sit and look out at the view. The two pools were pretty chilly at this time of year but very clean with lots of comfy sun beds. The Sea View Restaurant served a varied range of food which was well presented and tasted great. The waiting staff were very friendly and helpful and the bar staff were a great laugh, especially Mahmott (not sure of spelling!). The Club House was a nice place to have a cup of tea or a quiet drink in the chilled out atmosphere. La Veranda was the best place to sit in the evening to watch the sunset with a glass of wine and later on the Animation team would put on a show which was good fun. The Animators were fun, friendly and happy to answer any questions about the hotel and area. Steve was the only English animator who had just started and was very friendly and a good laugh! He would let us know about any club nights, when if you wanted to the animators would take you to and from one of the nearby clubs and bars and make sure you had fun. The beach bar was very nice with plenty of places to sit and we had a snack lunch of pizza and chips a few times. It was great to be able to eat on the beach and also grab a drink whenever we needed. The hotel's private beach was great, with plenty of sunbeds. The snorkling in certain spots was amazing with a huge range of beautiful fish and corals. The animation team would always be around on the beach playing games and hosting aerobics and dancing lessons. The hotel is situated in walking distance from The Old Market where there are many shops and stalls to buy souvenirs and gifts but you have to haggle! There were 2 or 3 members of staff who would wonder the hotel beach offering spa treatments or excersions but were easily turned away if you were not interested. Otherwise we were not bothered at all on the hotel premises. We had a really fantastic holiday at Beach Albatros and hope we can return one day.

Room Tip: It seems nearly all rooms have a sea view but the top floor was just amazing! If you stay in one of...

This was my second stay at the Beach Albatros so a second stay must say something about this hotel. My room was a twin for single use and was simply furnished but was spacious, comfortable and it was kept very clean.
There are two restaurants serving a selection of dishes which were well prepared, varied and tasty. The hot food was also kept hot without drying out. I found the staff in the restaurants to be extremely friendly and helpful and the views across the bay to the Sinai mountains beyond were spectacular. There are also a number of places outside where guests can get drinks, hot, cold and alcoholic.
The hotel has two main pools with surrounding paved areas and a lovely landscaped garden area which is maintained on a daily basis. I loved the garden as it provided an oasis of peace and calm and with those fabulous views across the bay to the hills beyond, a hard spot to beat.
There are both steps and lift access to the large beach area at the foot of the cliff which seemed to be hugely popular with guests and had a variety of shops ,cafes and bars
This hotel is one of the oldest in Sharm but its stunning location, lovely outdoor areas and excellent staff make it an hotel worth putting on your shortlist. If you have kids you will be happy to know that it is very family friendly.

Room Tip: Be aware that evening entertainment in the outdoor La Veranda can be quite noisy so if you like to t...
