Beach Albatros Garden Hurghada
Despite its name, this property is located on the land side of the beach road but does have a fully serviced facility at its sister property opposite. The amount of water features within the compact grounds, however, could justify the use of the word ‘beach’!
Internal areas are stylishly designed and there is a choice of dining venue. Grounds around the various pools and beneath the water shoots are busy and lively with the families attracted by the extensive facilities.
