... seen, swam through a cave, and saw dozens of different types of sea life including blue spotted stingrays, pike fish, jellyfish, stone fish, lion fish, moray eels, dolphins (above and below the surface), and on our last dive a regal turtle swam right below us in the opposite direction along the aquatic highway.

We stayed at the Marriot Hotel. Our Hotel was on the mountainside and the better half was on the beach side. Crossing to the beach meant a 5 minute walk over a busy highway with traffic police slowing down the traffic to allow tourists to cross.

Although the fish and corals were great, the most exciting part was getting to and from the boat on the floating dock which swayed wildly with every step.

After an hour at the surface, we descended for our second dive, heading into the ship itself. We started at the bottom floor where we saw dozens of trucks filled with motorcycles in the beds.

Historical Traveler Reviews Beach Albatros Sharm Sharm El-Sheikh
More than expected
Surprisingly the Beach Albatros was nothing like it was notoriuosly painted on the internet. The sea view from balcony was amazing, the beach was at arms lenght, and although the sea wasn't quite warm yet, the sun was hot enough to make you sweat! Putting a smile on tourists face was staff's pleasure. We were never left hungry or bored: Voleyball, sauna, bellydancing lessons, massage etc we didnt have enough time for all that! That's why we are planning to visit again!
In all the places in all the world I WOULDN'T recommend this one......
Best holiday of my life
This holiday was one of the best in my whole life. The people are so warm, friendly and welcoming it is impossible not to like them. The hotel had amazing views of the beach, your rooms where cleaned everyday, there was always something for you too eat all fresh and hot, there was always something there you could watch or do. It truly was a great experience and would recomend it too everyone.
I had a great time
i had so much fun in AlBatros, the beach was perfect, the ppl were nice, the rooms were clean and very nice... the only thing that could be holding it back is the food, which was good but not excellent!
other than that, it was a great place to stay, and now that im back home, i only wish to go there again!
Just don't ever think to stay in this hotel
just don't stay in this hotel ... low quality of everything " food & service & faraway from the main centre of city !!
written 4 stars and i'm sure maximum 2 stars
OK were do i start first i have never wrote a review but i feel this time i must so sorry if it is a bit long. This my first time in egypt and i heard the hotels are fantastic . That may be true but not for beach albatros . first night was decent we got there at about 11.30pm the hotel management put food on for us as we arrived 36 hours late but from then on it was awful . We were told this was a four star hotel no chance having just come from a four star hotel a few weeks before in morocco this would get a rating of 2 plus .The bedrooms were not bad but the beds were rock hard bathrooms smelt of raw sewage there was no hot water everthing was warm water .I stayed on the ground floor which were supposed to be better rooms judgeing by what other guests were saying . Food all i can say about it is disgusting if you are a fussy eater like me forget it and starve but my wife who is not and likes to try different food had to starve to but on the plus side you can order mcdonads and kentuckey very cheap from reception and delivered . Onsite entertainment rubbish disco rubbish .The bars ah the bars we never knew which one was open at any given time . The staff were very rude to you there were no manners at any time everthing seemed to be an effort for them more so the pizza man at the beach bar and the barman at the small pool bar at one point i was atually told not to walk to my room alone i can only pressume this was a threat which i find hard to belive as never once did i raise my voice . I have been abroad many times and have never been so badly treated even on the day of checking out we were supposed to be out of our rooms by 12.00 but by 10.30 the porter as there to take our luggage . i went to give the keys back at 12.00 were i was not allowed to leave reception untill i had my wristband cut off where upon i was then old to bring all my family to have there bands cut off at this point i said no as my mother is 72 and not steady on her feet so i said i would bring it at which point they agreed only to tell me i could only eat and drink till 2.30 but my coach was not due till 6.30 . All in all i would go back to egypt but in a much better hotel and by the way the weather was fantastic
We had read a few bad reports before we arraive so i was very pleased once we got there and i saw the hotel.
Great holiday at the Beach Abatros
The Beach Albatros does not look good as you arrive however the hotel facilities and the food were superb. The staff could not do enough for you and were very friendly. I would go back to the Albatros for another holiday.
This is not a 4star hotel
I was sold this accommodation as a 4 star quality I advise anyone booking that it is definately not of this quality. Do not be fooled as I was the Beach Albartros is fine if you are looking for a 2/3 star deal but do not let the agent foll you into looking at the "Calameria Beach Albertros" which is 4 star and then book you into Beach Albartros. They are quiet different quality.
The rooms in Beach Albartros are not modern especially if you have one of the chalet's they are functional and clean but basic, the tv did not work well and the furniture was old. The pool was cold bearing in mind that they state one of the pools are heated it was not. Food was repetative. Staff were however, very friendly and helpful and the beach was clean.
beach albatros hotel what an awkful place not 4 star more like 2/3 no choice of food especially for children take plenty of snacks with you for them and immodium for your stomach upsets. If you drink vodka take your own and don't expect much from the evening entertainment. The one redeeming feature is the beach area and evening sunsets. Hotel management and med hotel rep Walleed are useless no help at all. This is the third time i've been to Sharm the other two holidays were brilliant this one what a shambles, it was terrible I wouldn't recommend it.
