Just returned (very reluctantly) from another perfect holiday in Dahab, staying at Shams Hotel as always. Our second family at Shams welcomed us again with open arms, and looked after us, as they always do, with efficiency and a smile. Can't wait to go back - thank you Shams, and see you soon xx

Excellent service, the atmosphere is very good and relaxing. The staff is very friendly and helpful, always aiming to do their best and go the extra miles for their customers. In fact, they're so friendly they made it feel like home and like family.
