Our first holiday to this hotel was in Aug 09, we liked it so much we returned 2012 and we are planning to return for the third time Sept 2013!! Excellent service from friendly staff. Our rooms have been situated in between the hotel/restaurants and beach... best of both worlds! I love the location, we go to relax and the beach/jetty are my favorite place! Cant wait to go back, their all so welcoming, thank you!

We were at the hotel for two weeks in January 2013 and the hotel was incredible the staff could not do enough and the amount of people that were returning guests says it all.This time of year the pools are cold but the hotel does have one that is heated, if you are a young family there is plenty for children kids club, there own well equipped pool and a big screen at night showing children's films, plus the kids show with the animation team, who also work hard for the adults.
We have already been looking to book for next year.

I will say this to any one that is going to the hotel it's not the Managers fault if you have people who misbehave (some Brits, and some Russians)who can not take there ale or who feel because they have paid for it they are going to drink it. There was some nights in the Irish bar that were not pleasant but within three days they were removed from the hotel.

Only one request for the hotel WIFI should be free, thank you to all the staff see you soon.

just returned from our third trip to this great hotel,it seems improve everytime we visit. we travelled in a party of 4 adults and 3 children aged 4,9 and 12 it was the 1st time in sharm for the children there was always great food to suit everyone even the fussy 12 year old! the new tagine restaurant serving burgers and hotdogs etc at lunch time and the colubus coffee serving the most fantastic drinks all day and the most delicious icecreams in the afternoons are fantastic! the kids club was great for the younger 2 a big thankyou to clair,simone and anton for keeping them entertained.also thankyou to attia the lifeguard in the kids pool for looking after us so well. the new reward scheme for return visitors is a lovely touch with fruit, coke, and toiletries left in the room plus a fabulous free meal in the white elephant (highly recommended well worth paying for) thankyou. some rooms do seem a little tired but they are all spotlessly clean with the most large comfy beds and any complaints are attended to as soon as reported(the balcony door wouldn't lock)the repairman was there within 10 minutes 1st class service!
don't bother booking tranfers as there are dozens of taxi's outside the arrivals lounge negotiate the price first it wont cost more than £10 we got 2 taxi's for £15

WE have been to Sharm for the last 5-6 years and hace used a diff hotel each time, all have been fine, but this one is BEST . We will return
Why ?
The food is good for its choice, its impossible not to find something you could not like, many times freshly cooked in front of you. Also great is the big variety in restaurants is simply turn up and eat ! No booking before or limits to you trips. We even had starters in one then moved onto another for mains, just lovely. The staff were great , especially Khalel in the Kaiser restaurant, really spoilt us
Rooms are OK , we had 1811 first but had to move as very noisy heating pump above, reception moved us to 758 , again no problem , reception staff happy to help.
We also loved the Coffee louge , just a really classy touch . Plenty of room around plenty of pools. Kids pool was great , plus at front they have really big slides.
Beach bar fish and chips very nice, but more choice would be better. Even Donuts and Crepes cooked fresh at 4pm just in case you are pekkish
The maids we had were also exceptional, towel creations never seen before and just pure wish to help you have a good hols
Only complaints are price of WIFI / internet as hotel is at end of the bay so its a bit of a walk to find outside service. ( would be an idea if they offered at least 30 mins a day free )
In mornings some early noise from staff talking too loudly, then need to be told people are still asleep after a hard days eatting and drinking ( this was not the maids )

Room Tip: Some top floors have Solar heating units above rooms, these will be noisy

Stayed at this place last week of Jan first week of Feb.
the food is excellent in all the restaurants and the service is very attentive. The local spirits are not very nice but servings are generous. Free bottles if water available all day with all inclusive and there is always some food available 24 hours a day.
The room was kept very clean by house keeping and towels will be replaced daily. Beach towels provided in the room.


Just down towards the beach is a pathway that takes you along the coast past several hotels and there is a very nice beach bar called Blendz. They have local spirits and more importantly imported alcohol at very reasonable prices. There is also wireless Internet available in request and a very friendly team staff some are English. Also British football and rugby and other sports. Blendz is a must to visit.

The albatross is a very good hotel and I have been to several in Sharm and this is the best I've come across.

Spent a very enjoyable week at RA. Requested a room in quieter part of the complex and thankfully this was noted. We had a spacious room overlooking relaxation area and a minute from the newly refurbished spa.
The resort is very well cared for and the staff all do a wonderful job, going out of their way to make everyone feel special.
The food is plentiful and varied although I would say it is more quantity than quality. Saying that the breads are very good ( especially the flat breads cooked in the outside oven next to the tagine restaurant). The food at the beach bar is not great quality....chips and fried fish. I would of liked to have seen more good quality, grilled fish or seafood. I was careful with the food and drink I chose and didn't feel ill at any point during the week.
If you are keen to have massage I recommend doing a deal with Waleed. Doha was my massage therapist, I highly recommend her, she speaks hardly any English but does a good treatment...make sure you tip her as her job is hard work!
Enjoy your holiday!!

It was our first time to Sharm for me & my sister and had been recommeded this hotel by one of her work colleagues - we were not disappointed! Well perhaps a little by the room, in that the bathroom was very tired and in need of an update BUT as far aas the hotel in general, it was excellent.
Staff were brilliant and only too willing to assist you (think reception staff could learn from the others though). All the restaurants were superb and varied tastes which meant you did not get bored with eating the same thing!
Shame they didnt have a more livelier entertainment in the "lounge bar" area as the two girl instrumentalists/singers were a tad dull. However the Animation team made up for that but would have been nice to have a dance somewhere (other than the Irish Bar - which smelt and was cold)
Overall a superb resort for families but needs a little more for friends or couples I think.

Room Tip: If you are not happy with your room then tell the reception and dont accept it until you are (they w...
