Pickalbatros Royal Moderna Sharm Aqua Park
Albatros Royal Moderna is a 5-star family-friendly hotel perched on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula, in Egypt, only 20mins from Sharm-el-Sheikh airport. Located right on the beach, you can enjoy year-round sunshine, azure coastlines and long stretches of golden sands without ever leaving the resort. And with a pool and beach waiter service included, you can order drinks and snacks from the comfort of your lounger. The warm crystal-clear waters are also shallow for up to 20-feet, making it ideal for splashing around with your little ones.
The Red Sea has some of the best diving and snorkelling sites in the world, with the Nabq Natural Protected Area teeming with marine life. Guests can walk along the hotel’s private jetty to explore the nearby Coral Reef.
Albatros Royal Moderna also delivers on the outdoor pool front - with 11 in total, two of which are heated and five separated for children. You also have access to your very own waterparks, with 8 slides for adults and 24 for kids. The younger guests also have access to the playground, a cinema, and a kids club suitable for ages 4-12.
The hotel also hosts a variety of fun activities for all, including water polo, garden football, beach volleyball and aqua aerobics. For a break from the midday sun, head into the breezy games room for a round of darts, table tennis or pool. Or maintain your fitness regime in the onsite gym. The tennis courts, mini golf facilities, scuba diving courses and speedboat rides are available for an additional fee. After a day of activities, why not treat yourself to some time in the spa where you will find a hot tub, sauna, steam room and Turkish bath treatments available at an extra cost.
As for mealtimes, you have six restaurants to choose from, each serving different cuisines including Mediterranean, German, Italian, seafood and Asian dishes. So you could be tucking into homemade pizza one night and fresh fish the next. For those arriving late, the Mediterranean Restaurant serves until midnight, and a late breakfast is served until 11am. Early risers can sit down for breakfast from 5-7am at the Columbus Cafe.
When the sun sets, head to the Irish Pub for a few cocktails on the dancefloor, or the Terrace and Jazz cafe for nightly entertainment. The hotel theatre and bars come to life in the evenings with regular dance performances and games shows, live music and singers. The hotel has nine bars in total, including one offering daily ice cream and milkshakes, a sports bar, Shisha corner, pool bars and a snack bar on the beach.
All rooms are air-conditioned with either a private balcony or terrace. Views include either the sea, pool or landscape. In each room you will also find a satellite LCD TV, free movie channels, and a hairdryer. Wake-up calls and ironing facilities are available on request. Choose from Standard Rooms, Family Rooms or Junior Suites. To ensure beautiful views of the Red Sea, upgrade to a Royal Suite.
Royal Albatros Moderna is 2km from the centre of La Strada with a shopping centre and restaurants, and 13km from the nightlife in Soho Square. It's 5km from Pataya beach, where you swim or join a snorkel trip to experience the diverse marine life and coral reefs of the Red Sea. You can also experience scuba diving at Shark Bay Oasis, only 20 mins away. Don’t let the name put you off – sharks aren’t likely, but parrotfish, pufferfish and stingrays are.
For family-friendly day trips on land, you can join a desert safari and a visit to a traditional Bedouin camp. If you want to hunt for artisan souvenirs and feel the bustle of a real Egyptian bazaar, you can spend the day in Sharm el Sheik Old Market, 33km from the hotel. Haggle for spices, jewellery, pottery, glass perfume bottles and souvenirs, before viewing the exquisite Al Sahaba mosque. The International Shopping and Tourism Festival is also held every July, offering discounts at shops, stalls and restaurants all over town to drum up business for local shops.
