“Wow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

Just returned from staying at the royal alabtros moderna sharm el sheik. All I can say is WOW what a hotel, it is a huge hotel with lots lots to see and do with a lounge bar that makes the hotel a welcoming atmosphere where the bar staff especially Ahmed Salem who is the best bar tender around the whole complex and who is always up for a laugh and a joke. The lounge bar makes the hotel what it is and is always ready to welcome you. The rooms are huge and spotlessly clean and you will never be hungry or bored at any time.
The hotel is worth the 6th star and deserve to be awarded it.
Well done RAM, the staff and management.

this hotel is absolutely amazing,such kind staff,clean rooms,never bored and great food we travelled in a group of three this year normally 5 although i thought it wasn't going to be as good i was pleasantly surprised with everything one of the funniest things was i very much enjoyed the koftas outside the tagine so we tipped the man and he gave me plates full so be aware so this is a great holiday for families couples and everyone with its several pools. this year i also did scuba diving because i have a diving license i would 100 percent recommend it its so clear and the scenery is amazing and also near the 600 METRE jetty theirs a shipwreck so i definitely recommend this hotel

Room Tip: go for a room near the active pool because your near to everything

That was our first holiday in Royal Albatros Moderns and definitely not the last one.
Hotel itself is very nice and clean, it's located not far from shops.We choose pool view room and I think it was very good choice, the room was very big and nice, service was brilliant.Poll was supervised all the time and it was clean, we were anjoing water slides in the aqua park using them all day long.Food was simply great, you have a choice of 7 restaurants.They also have a great beach and jetty, you can see beautiful marine fish,corals even if you are not snorkeling.We are definitely going back there next year to spend some more time relaxing at the pool or having a nice trips.

Room Tip: I would definitely go for pool view room on one of the higher floors

We have just returned from a quick one week break to the Royal Albatros Moderna. We booked the hotel a few weeks before leaving and chose this mainly because of the great reviews it has received. We did have a good time but there are quite a few pros and a few cons.

The pros are,

Great beach and Jetty. The water and fish are amazing and you really dont need to even snorkel to see some of the most beautiful marine fish, but it is a great experience.

The size of the resort is massive with lots for the kids to do.

The kids pools is a great size with lots of activities, slides and is shallow all over.

The Columbus coffee bar is a lovely place to chill out and serves some great coffees and teas along with good ice cream for a couple of hours in the afternoon.

The pancake and donut stations were a great addition in the afternoon.

The hotel room was Ok if a little tired. We were given a 2 bedroomed room, which was very big, with 2 balconies. We did have a problem with the shower and to their credit it was fixed the next day after informing the reception. It was room no.2209 and was quite a trek to get to the kids pool in a morning but it wasn't a problem.

The self service soft drink machines was a great bonus for our kids, who could just go and help themselves instead of having to queue.

The cons,

You have to get up so early in the morning to get a sunbed or you can pay the pool guys a wedge of money who will secretly (only found out on last day) place your towels on your beds for you at a silly hour in the morning. First day we got there I wandered down to the pools at about 7.30 - 8.00 and was able to find beds for us all. By the end of the holiday if you were not down by 6.00am and I really mean by 6.00am you had no chance. This was a big problem with most people that we talked to on the holiday regarding the sun bed situation. You really would have nowhere to sit if you didn't come down by this time. All the beds had gone. I have come back from this holiday feeling more tired than when I left. This really needs to be sorted out by the management. It needs a fairer system putting in place whereby you can only put towels out at a certain time and only if you stay with them and the pool guys really need to stop taking money to save beds.

The restaurants.

This was another problem area. Whilst having the choice of all the restaurants was great and there really was some good varied food, you would have to wander around the restaurants and by the time you had come back to your table, having got food for the kids, most of your food was cold. We never managed to eat a meal together in the restaurants all holiday. Like I say, some of the food, especially the Tagine and the L'asiatique was great and my daughter loved having a fresh garlic and cheese bread made in the Italian and I especially like the Koftas from the outdoor BBQ but the time taken for you all individually to go and have a look at the different restaurants made meals time a chore in the end. Yes we could have just stayed in the one restaurant but the choice in just one restaurant probably wasnt good enough for us all.
Another negative with the restaurants is that all holiday we were only ever asked at the table if we wanted a drink once. The rest of the time we were just ignored.

The waiters and bar staff were not the most happy or friendliest people i've ever come across and yes I did tip, but it didnt seem to make a difference. It was Ramadam when we visited so this maybe was a factor to take into consideration.

The size of the glasses for drinks were too small and you often got them served in paper coca cola ones.

Overall, yes we did have a good time. It would have been a great time if only for my main gripe the sun beds, the restaurants I can cope with and to a certain extent you have the same problems at most buffet restaurants.

I would rate this resort as a 4 star and yes if the main problems were sorted out we would return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the active pool if you want kids and email in advance.

Me and my boyfriend have just returned back from a 9 night stay at RAM. After seeing the reviews on here we were very excited, we got to the hotel approx 10pm, we were welcomed with a drink on arrival and took to our rooms, we had paid for a promo room, but i emailed the hotel before we went if we could have a activity pool view room, and its exactly what we got, the room was big, the bed was huge too which was great, our balcony looked exactly onto the activity pool, and the air con was a god send in there, (beware it is so hot in egypt right now). The cleaners cleaned every single day with fresh water bottles, which we were grateful for.
The food is amazing, plenty to choose from, me and my boyfriend didn't eat from the same restaurant each night, he'd go to a few and i'd pick a different restaurant to whatever we fancied to eat and both ate together, puddings were lovely too, we called it the pudding hunt! There was a cocktail stand by the med restaurant, cocktail of the day it was called, we took full advantage of that as the cocktails were lovely, as unfortunantly the cocktails from the bar, i didnt rate, i had to order a non alcoholic cocktail and have vodka added, if only the cocktails were as nice as the 'cocktail of the day'. The pools were great, although, the day time activites were mainly for children, exspecially when my boyfriend was up for playing water polo everyday but he seen the age range he didn't think it was suitable for him, so this meant the day times were yes relaxing but boring for him, and also i found my self abit bored sun batheing too, and think the team did a great job for the kids, but there was nothing really for the adults. And also it would of been great for the music to be played all day round the activity pool, but i guess we are 21/22 and maybe wanted it abit more lively. The gym was good, as me and my boyfriend are into our fitness we trained everyday. If anyone seen a muscly tall young man walking around during the day with a protein shaker cup with beer in that would be my boyfriend, as he claimed the glasses the beer were served in were too small, but the barmen had no problem in filling his 600ml plastic shaker cup up with beer! :) The night time entertainment was very average i would say. All in all, we our enjoyed our time here, had a really good holiday and would definantly reccomend this hotel, and i can imagine it would be a brilliant family holiday aswell.

Me and my boyfriend have not long got back from the Royal Albatros Moderna. As were both only 22 we did not know what to expect. This hotel is one of the most amazing hotels we have ever stayed in. The hotel was enormous, the room was brilliant, the food was never ending and the choice of what to do there was fantastic. We stayed for 10 nights and was very sorry to leave and go home. when booking the room, we chose the R of H. Which was room of house, our room over looked the beautiful relaxation pool and it was very spacious and beautiful. Everyday we went down to the pool, the water park and the beach on the pier and went snorkelling in the beautiful red sea. The other pool is the active pool, this is great fun, where all of the animation team play games, get involved and have a laugh with you. It also has an amazing children's water park with a variety of different fun slides and water games!! Very fun!! I also cannot express how friendly all of the staff were and how quickly our friendships blossomed with them. We especially loved the young man who worked at the relaxation bar, Gerges. He is such an amazing young man and we were very sorry to say goodbye. The water park was great fun and was suitable for all ages. Me and my partner were already discussing when we would next visit the Royal Albatros Moderna whilst still holidaying there. The price for this sort of hotel and complex is beyond amazing. I would also recommend having a photo shoot there with a photographer called Ahmed. He done us an amazing photo shoot with over 183 photos on a cd, i cannot thank him enough for the stunning pictures we will treasure forever. Amazing hotel, you will not regret booking this.

Room Tip: Rooms over looking the beautiful relaxation pool are quiet and beautiful when lit up at night.

During the winter we always want to spend a week in a sunny and warm/hot place to reload the batteries and have quality family time. We always travel in a big group with 4 generations ( age 83 to 4 years).This year we stayed for one week in the Royal Albatros Monderna in Sharm el Sheikh and enjoyed every minute.We booked a family room (for me, my husband and our 2 kids) which was great - a separate room for the kids and 2 bathrooms. Therefore we had a lot of space and all of us were sleeping very well. The kids could not get enough from playing in the kids pool. The water is really warm and there are different slides. There is a big choice of food from different areas (e.g. asian , arabic and italian food) and it tastes really well – I am afraid we gained some kilos there ;-) . The staff is friendly and helpful. And what is better than to go snorkeling in the red sea- especially when you have a koralriff infront of the hotel which you easily can access via the hotel-owned seabridge. We definetly want to return to the Royal Albatros Moderna – hopefully next year. This is a perfect place to stay for all ages.
