The place is well located - on a walking distance from the lagoon and the restaurants as well (which u'll probably be heading to during the evenings). Our group was accommodated in bungalows and regular rooms which were both nice. The staff are really helpful and flexible and the diving instructors are ready to help and give you brief intro...

Shams Hotel is lovely. It is, as Dahab is, basic but comfortable and friendly with everything you need. The people who work there are warm, friendly, generous, smiling and are always around to help. The food is excellent and the restaurant is right on the sea edge, so the views while you eat breakfast or dine in the evening are... More
