Clean... This is the first impression you get once you walk into the room. the location is in the center of the city and directly on the beach. The staff is very professional and very friendly. They will not get 5 stars because of the lack of Internet coverage as it is not available in the rooms. The need also... More

This was my second visit to Dahab and certainly the most enjoyable thanks to Shams Hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful especially the owner Sham who made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived and nothing was too much trouble. It was a lovely location and the room was very comfortable with a balcony where one could... More

All workers at Shams makes you feel like home. Only when you meet the owner of the place (Shams) you understand why. Exquisite treatment and food. Very good quality diving equipment and very professional diving skills. For sure I will be back!!

Shams Hotel has a good location at the beach, everything needed is a walk away. Staff is friendly and the rooms are small but very cosy and clean. Whenever there is a problem (e.g. need transport or new sheets) they are keen to help. Overall we had a great experience with this hotel and its' staff!

I stayed at Shams for 11 nights at end of February beginning of March 2015. All the staff and the owner Sham were exceptionally welcoming and friendly and they made my stay very enjoyable. The restaurant and chill out area were comfortable and well maintained and they never minded if I ate my own food in the chill out area.... More

My sister took me here to go scuba diving for the first time. She has been coming here a long time, and the staff is great. The rooms are clean but not fancy. Get the hot orange juice with honey at the restaurant, it is really wonderful.

Shams has a good location, just in the middle of the town. Apart from relaxing atmosphere, amazing sea-view terrace restaurant and a diving-center, it has the most smiling and friendly owner! There are several bungalows and 2-level hotel buildings with sea-view. This has been a real pleasure to stay there!

My stay with other three friends in two double rooms was very good. The rooms are clean and organized. It is the kind of the hotel for a reasonable budget if you are planning to stay in Dahab for two or three days and enjoy the area, do some activities like diving and safari. The food quality is excellent and... More

The hotel is very clean, centrally located in Dahab and the staff is nice and helpful. They also make a great oriental breakfast meal. I stayed for 3 days in a triple room and had a pleasant experience. Recommended.
