I just came back to the US. I had a great time during the dessert safari. every morning we were provided with the most amazing and fresh breakfast. I loved the colorful underwater life in the red sea. That was a great vacation. Thank you

I can start sharing with you my experience of having that beautifully decorated romantic room with amazing sea and mountains view. Great location and just 1 meter away from the sea! The room was clean, and so is the showering water, hot water, and A/C. These things are not provided anywhere in Dahab. The stuff are super nice and helpful.... More

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
