“Family Holiday”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

We visited the Royal Albatross at the start of April 2013, the hotel layout is great and caters for most of your needs, i would definitely return to the hotel and go back next year.
The food was loverly with a wide range of different options and some chef specials every night on offer in each cuisine restaurant. the only thing with so much to offer, is it became a bit repetitive with where i preferred to eat from. And the deserts were not very nice, however doughnut and pancake time made up for that between 4-6 every night.
The rooms were loverly and were just what we wanted, we were located right next to the main pool, the best bar/restaurant was the beach bar, and if you take your thermals then the coolest bar on site was the irish bar.
Overall a great holiday had by all.
The only negatives i have are be aware you get harassed daily inside or external to the complex to spend spend spend, in he complex however you can ask for a red Flag for your sun bed which is a hassle free flag.
The on site entertainment wasn't very good tbh however got better as the holiday went on.
And finally, expect very loud conversations to take place in places where alcohol is located as the amount of russian tourists is vast, loud and somewhat quite rude to the staff at times.
Finally the beach and sea was not to good however i'm a pool person and the water slides are rapid.

The staff however are fantastic and couldn't do more to make you have a great holiday, they go out of their way at any cost to make you feel welcome and are fantastic with service.

Room Tip: Top end of the 200's or 400's are the best rooms.

Especially the food in the six different restaurants was excellent. Lots of fresh foods to choose from and a variety of food styles changing on daily basis. Staffs were very friendly from the start, but giving a little tip enhances the way you're being served in the restaurants and bars.
Clean, large rooms and drinks available all day until 0.00 and in many different outlets.
4 pools and direct acces to the beach. Also the water park with several big water slides is lots of fun. So no need to leave the resort, everthingyou need is right here!

After returning with my family and friend for the 5th time, all I can say is things always get better! There is no way anybody could possibly complain.The food is too a highly achieved standard and there is always something to suit everybody and their culture. There is always plenty off entertainment during the day round the active pool and around the water park,this is a great place for children.The staff on reception are extremely welcoming as always and are very friendly and helpful.The rooms are lovely and well equipped with everything needed additionally,our room cleaner Saied Yassin was great and really friendly and also did a really good job off room,it was always spotless! To top this off he always put a smile on our faces daily with his amazing 'towel art' we always had something different in our room every day, from swans to elephants to crocodiles and even a hanging monkey from our roof! All the staff around the water park area are really great people they are so funny and love to have a laugh with you. Also, Mohamed Kamal from the active pool bar is a really great guy and is a friendly face to anybody from the young to old! He is great at his job and always has a new drink creation daily:-) another friendly face is the hotel gardener who usually works around the active pool area. He is a really nice man that greets everybody daily and is really kind.In conclusion all staff are well and truly amazing and really nice people! They really do treat the guests with so much respect and are really helpful.Moreover, the spa and beauty salon is absolutely gorgeous and the treatments are a reasonable price, all the staff from the beauty salon and such a laugh and make you feel so comfortable and welcome! There is no doubt that we will be returning once again, this hotel is well and truly amazing and we can always guarantee a fabulous holiday when we stay here!:-) see you all again soon, regards Tegan Vassallo and Thomas Jones .

Me and the wife first stayed at the RAM in Jan 2012. We loved it so much we went back again in March 2013. The place was even better second time around. The grounds were always kept spotless. Your room was cleaned every day and the man that cleaned the room could'nt have been friendlier. The new coffee lounge (which was'nt there the first time we went) was also a big improvement. You could not fault the food either, there was something for everyone and once you found your way around the different restaurants, you realised just how much of a choice there was. We stayed by the Relaxation Pool but if you are a family with children then the Active pool is the place to be. There is always something going on to keep the kids happy.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 1837 by the Relaxation Pool, 2yrs running. You get the sun on the balcony all day...

Its been a while since I have actualy written a review and this is a old one (from Jan 2013), but I would like to share my experience's with you all.

This is a superb 5 star hotel with fantastic coverage of foods, drink and entertainment.

7 Restraunts consisting of numerous cusines, Italian, Mexican, Spanish....english ;) ALL mouthwatering tasty and plentyful!. You are able to make your own pizza's create artistic creapes and enjoy exotic fruits! Only issues here is the deserts are not all that great! Apart from the creapes :)

Drinks are a cracking variety from cocktails to straight up draft beer. Only issue is its not the best of tasting, if you are not fussy then there is no fuss! The quality of the drink is on par with Valued ranged from Tesco's Sainsburys etc. but please dont let this put you off.

The entertainment is pretty good but the bars all shut down at midnight. You can dance the night away in the Irish bar or go to the beach to bare witness to a Fire shows. Only issue is the Irish Bar smells....REALLY bad, (Sick and Swet) Please make note there are roughly 10 bars.... So again don't let this put you off!

The culture is a tipping one, it can be from the smallest noted to what ever you please, but please tip, they make more in one generous tip then a days wage. Heart breaking but true, after you do tip them they will treat you like kings and queens)

The holiday rep will mention about the shops inside the complexe two small shops both fare priced and you can not banter in them, but you can - I did and got a fraction of the price.

If you buy ANTHING out side the complex you will be able to get it in the shops inside the complex, sometimes cheaper.

The water park slides are all good and proper! Great fun A bar on hand a hundred feet away, Multiple pools and very own private beach!

I very much enjoyed this holiday and can recomen diving, star gazing and quad biking! =)

If you have any questions please holla!!
