Dont be put off

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 22 Feb 2013
Our first time in Egypt and stayed here 5th Feb to 21st Feb. The surrounding area is a bit like bed rock but safe to walk around. We stayed in the main block (room 1211), it was a bit old fashioned but clean and the room cleaner couldnt do enough for you. Mainly Russian here, but they keep themselves to themselves. They do seem rude when speaking to the waiters, a small tip and manners go along way here.
I keep reading its definitely not 5*, but the hotels own rating is only 4* and the travel company we booked with give it 3* which I think is fair.
The grounds and beach are stunning and well kept. Loads to see if you like snorkeling. Entertainment is quite good albeit amateur.
I found breakfast dire, but you can get fried eggs and omlettes freshly made. Dinner and evening meals are good, not everything to our taste but we could always find something we liked.
Went on a few trips and all were value for money. They have a sister hotel 10 mins away with a water park, we paid €27 each to go in with no food or drinks included, we were told later that this was €4 each only two years before! We asked for a packed lunch to take, but they wouldnt make us one, probably because it is local but the guests there can use our facilities but we cant use theirs or get a discount. Also if you dont like hassle, dont go to the Old Market they are quite pushy and very pushy once you go in the shop, if you do have any problems threaten them with the tourist police (0020 693 660 311) and report it to your rep.
I know there are better hotels in Sharm (and a price to go with it) but please dont be put off with negative reviews, you cant please all the people all of the time.

This hotel is defintely not a 5 star hotel. We were put in a room in the block by reception , we asked to be be moved as this was defintely not one of the refurbished rooms. We were told that we requested a seaview you could just about see it through the trees !There were no windows except for a balcony door. We asked to be moved which they did the following day to a room by the pool which was really nice.
The restaurant was OK and the restaurant manager was very nice but the staff were a bit hit and miss with their attitudes and we had to go to the bar and get our own drinks there. The alcohol all tasted a bit like parrafin and no option to buy premium brands. THe hotel is kept very clean .
If you're after a bit of luxury this is not the place for you. I've previously stay at the Hilton which was lovely. The mosques do seem very close to this hotel but I thnk you hear them where ever you stay.

Room tip: Ask for a ground level

Stayed in Beach Albatros Resort from 17.01.13 - 24.01.13 and was absolutely impressed. The best hotel I ever stayed in Sharm as this was my 4th time there. Staff was very friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble for them. Animation team amazing - looked after each and everybody. Beach easy accessible, just few mins walk from the room. Room clean and nice with a small fridge, TV and big balcony with a fantastic view. Will definitely come back and recommend to my friends. Thank you Beach Albatros for another great holidays in Egypt.

Spent a week here with a 6 year old and 11 month old. Had a lovely time, doesn't look great from outside but it opens to a wonderful resort. Room is a little dated but comfortable, tv has 2 English movie channels and bbc world news.
4 nice pools and easy access to the man made beach below, this also has pockets of natural beach and a short walk to a natural bay.
Pools were cold but that's seasonal, sea was warm end of jan/early feb.
Food is varied and tasty, it is a middle eastern take on continental food so is slightly different but still good.
Beer is ok and rose wine not too bad but beware the spirits are super strength and unrecognisable from what you know!
Great for kids, staff are so helpful, especially Hosam in the restaurant!
Highly recommend this, although not much outside the hotel.

Hotel sits on the cliff overlooking a beautiful bay and the stunning Sinai mountains.Reception is small with a money exchange machine,they also change money at reception but use machine for a better exchange rate.
We were in rooms 3036 and 3037.They were small but clean with dressing table, flat screen tv with English film channels,big wardrobe ( but no coathangers) and fridge.There is a small safe in room also.Sliding doors lead out to a small seating area at back of room, at the front is the veranda bar.There is noise from 2 mosques in the early hours and throughout the day but didnt bother me and think it added to the atmosphere.
Had no problem with the food.It does cater more to European tastes but there was always something tasty to eat (think i tried everything!) Next door is an Italian doing fresh pizza and pasta at no extra charge if you prefer something more 'English'.Beach bar does pizza, hot dogs ect at lunch and cakes and pancakes mid afternoon. Never had an upset stomach in the whole two weeks even eating salad and rice.The alcohol is a bit hit and miss, Lager refreshing but doesnt seem to be very strong.Few of my party drank the vodka and orange but i found the white wine hit the spot (after the first glass it was very moreish lol )
Lift takes you down to the beach or there are steps if you are more energetic! Snorkelling fantastic. Can walk straight into the sea where you can see the fish. Under pier has lots more.I followed a previous reviewers tip and walked left along beach,past police hut onto public beach.Here is a coral bed where you can see lots of fish without going out of your depth if you're a nervous swimmer. Where the bed drops off there is a wall of coral which stretches the length of the beach,hundreds of fish,saw everything from manta rays to little clown fish!The submarine boats often stop alongside this reef.
Animation team work non stop to ensure you have a good time! Can join in on the beach with Yoga,belly dancing,water aerobics, volleyball,salsa dancing and more.They always had a smile on their face even with the long hours they work.
I enjoyed the entertainment but it might not be to everyones taste.Every night was something different.Had twirly skirt man and belly dancers,Fire eating and strong man show to Mr beach albatros ( go nick! ) and karaoke.This is shown in Le veranda bar that overlooks the bay and is outdoors. A couple of nights we were there the weather was chilly and it was moved to the clubhouse.You can smoke in the raised area at the back of the bar.
Would recommend a night out to Soho square which has some lovely metal statues,fountains and shopping and virtually no hassle from shopkeepers, although i found Namma bay wasn't too bad either.
Had a brilliant time at the Beach Albatros and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.Yes its a little 'tired' in places but kept beautifully clean and the views from veranda bar at sunset are just stunning
Big hello back to our 'special' friends (you know who you are) and thank you to ALL the staff at the Beach Albatros for a great holiday!
