I made my reservation for this hotel online and after I stayed for 10 days I discovered that the owner wanted to charge me a higher rate than we initially agreed. There was no mentioning of the increase in price during this time despite having talked over the phone. The discussion became heated with threats of bring the tourism police.... More

The hotel is clam with clean rooms and directly in front of the sea. Staff is friendly as well. You will be safe there. Its location in the middle of the town makes it easy to commute around for any shop or restaurant. I will stay in Shams when I visit Dahab again!

Shams is a great place to stay in Dahab, the location is convenient close to Laguna beach and the "souk" in Mashraba. Nice relaxing atmosphere and the staff are so friendly. The food was simple and delicious I definitely recommend it and would love to go back soon.

If you're planning to spend some days diving and relaxing in Dahab, you should stay not too far from downtown in order to discovering Dahab's plenty of restaurants and cafés. Shams is very centrally located at the sea shore, offering incredible views, and being the ideal starting point for going out. Rooms are tidy and we'll kept, breakfast and food... More
