Just returned from the Royal Albatros and had a fabulous holiday. Our third visit and this hotel just gets better and better.
Arrival - we were checked in by friendly reception staff and swiftly shown to our delightful room. Wow, we were lucky to stay in one of the newly built rooms. Huge bedrooms, plasma t.v, well stocked fridge, walk in shower, personal safe. Regular courtesy calls during stay from reception staff to check all was well.
Changes - since last year, fab childrens pool with slides and fountains, new furniture in hotel, parasols, sunbeds and jetty has been extended. Jetty is exclusive to the hotel, others have to pay. Snorkelling off the jetty is amazing.
Beach Bar - is good for lunch. Pizza, pasta, chips, freshly made sandwiches. It's waiter service, and you don't wait long. Staff work really hard.
Main Dinning - area is much extended with themed nights and a huge choice of dishes. There really is something for everyone. Although they very rarely serve chips, well after all you are in Egypt, not Benidorm. Yes, I agree, the food stations are spread out, but can you imagine the chaos if they weren't. Such a big hotel with so many people, need i say more!!!
Pools - spent our time between the active and relaxation pool. The active pool is much more lively and you do get hassled for massages and trips, but a polite 'no' is all that's required. The relaxation pool was nice for a quiet relaxing day. The staff at both pools looked after us with much needed drinks.
Bars - We spent many evenings in the Lounge Bar relaxing with good friends we made. A big thankyou to SALAH, HANY and MOHAMED for looking after us. We shared fun times with them and our drinks were never empty. SALAH would always greet us with a smile and a hand shake and amazingly remembered our names.
Hotel is spotless, kept this way by the hard working cleaners.
We found most staff very polite and professional.
Few Tips : Weather is very hot, so take lots of high factor and aftersun. We nearly ran out. Also we took very little Egyptian currency as they prefer sterling.
