Rooms and facilities in the hotel

This hotel is rightly a 5* hotel. The rooms are very modern and clean. We stayed in a standard double room with a child’s crib that can be provided upon request. There is a double bed with bedside tables, wardrobe, table with TV, coffee and tea set with a kettle. The bathroom has a big shower, toilet, sink, and shelves with some cosmetics and a box of tissues provided. There is a balcony with chairs and a table and also a hanger for your wet clothes. The rooms were cleaned and towels were changed every day.

Reception at Albatros White Beach Resort

We arrived at night and in the morning I left a plastic bag with my cosmetics in the bathroom because my lotion leaked out. When we returned from the beach, all my cosmetics were cleaned and organized nicely on the shelves. Wow! I was surprised by this. In general, the whole hotel was very clean. There is a reception with seating areas, and next to it is another room with a bar or coffee where you can sit and enjoy your drink.

 

Restaurants and bars

There are several restaurants and bars in the resort. It took us some time to figure it out as the resort is quite big. There is one main restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Breakfast had so many choices. Starting from many kinds of cereals, yogurt, milk, fruits, vegetables, lots of kinds of bread, ham, cheese, sweet pastries and other cakes, pancakes, English breakfast or they made you scrambled eggs or omelet on your request. There was tea, coffee, and different kinds of juices, plus they gave us a bottle of water on the table every morning. There is another restaurant for breakfast, but with smaller choices. Lunch and dinner were served in the main restaurant with local or international cuisine. The food was always changing with many variations.

The second restaurant is Asian, serving Asian food for lunch and dinner and there is a third restaurant, Italian, open for dinner. There are all kinds of soft drinks and alcoholic drinks as well. With lunches and dinners are all kinds of Arabic and other sweets served. The choices here are endless. Every time we wanted to try something new, so we were sharing cakes and sweets. Really delicious.

Outside, close to the beach is another fast food restaurant open for lunch, drinks, and afternoon snacks. In case you didn’t want to go from the beach to the main restaurants, you could have shawerma sandwiches, pasta, or pizza there. Also, they serve ice cream there the whole day. There are two pool bars and one beach bar. What else do you need?

 

Beach and pools

There is a beautiful sandy beach with free sunbeds and umbrellas and rented towels if you wish. The entrance to the sea is very shallow and gradual. You can walk maybe ten meters to be able to swim, so it is perfect for small children to walk and play there. If you want to swim, you can walk till you reach deeper water or you can walk on the pier from which you can take stairs directly to the deep water. There was a lifeguard on the pier for your safety. Unfortunately there is no opportunity for snorkelers here.

There are two big pools for swimming, one of them was mostly used for aqua aerobics and other sports activities. The rest is an aqua park for children. I can tell you that this was a paradise for children. I wish I were a child as I didn’t have such an opportunity when I was little. There is one pool in the theme of pirates island with a big pirate ship with slides, a big hill with a slide and palm trees, and another small ship.

The second pool is with a big castle where from each side there is a different kind of slide. Kids can walk around, inside, and slide. There are two more pools with different statues of animals, shells, and others from which the water was sprinkled. Really, it is impossible to describe, but must be seen. There is always music playing around the pools and the whole resort, which gives a very good and enjoyable feeling.

 

Entertainment and customer service

For entertainment, there were some sports activities, like tennis, beach volleyball and during the day animators were offering aqua aerobics, yoga, and some other classes, which we didn’t attend as we had a small child with us. Also, they offer massages and different trips out from the hotel.

Playground at Albatros White Beach resort

For children, there is an outside playground. In the evening there is also an animation program, for kids mini disco, which our daughter enjoyed the most. For adults, I didn’t see much, just a singer singing. And this is one minus of this hotel I have to say. The animation team was mostly Russian speakers and there was no show or entertainment for adults or even for children. I would recommend hiring more local people who can make amazing shows based on my experience with other hotels and countries. Also, the local people can usually speak many languages to all guests, not just Russian speakers. I understand that the clients are mostly from these countries, and therefore they want to have some animators of these nationalities, but it should be mixed. You are coming to Egypt in the end, right?

Otherwise, the whole staff was very nice and friendly, always smiley and talkative, with great customer service. Even though they had to wear face masks during the corona crisis, which is not very comfortable, they always had a good mood.

 

Overall review

Overall review from me for this hotel is 9.5 out of 10. The only reason I didn’t give 10 is the animation team and also there is nothing around the hotel. For example to buy some souvenirs or look around. There were a few small shops, but not very good. You need to take a taxi to go to Hurghada center or to some better shops. However, this was not a big deal for us. Otherwise, I highly recommend this resort for cleanliness, customer service, facilities for children and adults, a beautiful beach, and delicious food. Our holiday here was 200% satisfactory and I would definitely come back here.
