“Nice Hotel, with perfect Service direct at the Sea...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2011

Shams Hotel is a very clean and top managed Hotel direct at the beautyful sea in Dahab.
The Staff was very friendly and helpful, our pickup at the boarder worked also without troubles.
They have good conections to all kind of entertainment like dessert adventure trips, scuba diving, snorkeling....
I am sure that i choose the same Hotel again.

Fantastic value and personal service like nowhere else. The restaurant became one of the top ones in Dahab. We won't ever stay anywhere else.

I went to Dahab several times before but it was my first stay in Shams hotel and i can tell you it is the best. Hotels in Dahab are very basic so don't expect something fancy, but it was clean and survice was super. the food was great (ask for the Egyptian style breakfast).

This is a nice, clean hotel with a comfortable bed. Your room is cleaned every day, and fresh towels if you want them (and sometimes also when you don't!). Nice and quiet, a one minute walk from Dahab's hustle and bustle (if you can call it that, haha!). Had a great time here, and would recommend it to everyone. Breakfast in the seaside restaurant is also fine!

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel and its staff. Egypt is full of people who want to make your trip incredible, and Shams won the prize. When my friend became ill, they were there with medicine, special ordered-dinner and tea, and rearranged our Mt Sinai hike within an hour. When my computer power cord broke, suddenly Mohammad found two and delivered them to my room, unsolicited. hey loaned us snorkel equipment too. They want you to relax, enjoy and see all you want to see. The rooms are new and clean and quiet and there are outdoor pool tables and hammocks. The restaurant is full of cozy pillows and great food - get the shrimp. By the time we left, we were best buddies with everyone. Stay here.

My husband and I stayed here for two weeks in August 2010. The room was clean, staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the restaurant was one of the best for Egyptian food. The location is also good. Our room was about 50 m from the beach, you can walk to everything and the best snorkeling we found was only about 200 m up the beach. For the price (especially including breakfast), you can't beat it.

The only thing that I missed was the occasional use of a pool, but for only 30 LE per day, you can use the one next door.

We stayed in Shams hotel for two weeks in august 2010, it is a really great place!
The rooms are good and clean, the sea view was amazing.
The breakfast , dinners and drinks we had at Shams restaurant were really good.
All the members off the staff (restaurant, kitchen, cleaning) were so sweet for us, super service!
Snorkelling in front of the hotel was very beautiful ,but also swimming and snorkelling at the lighthouse and the laguna was great too.
The shops were nearby and in a view minutes walk you find the restaurants.

We had a fantastic holiday in dahab!
