Shams is a very nice Hotel located directly infront of the sea shore. The rooms are really nice, clean and comfortable. The prices are very reasonable and affordable. the service is very friendly and most of the staff is really helpful. We had B&B accommodation, and it was awesome having breakfast everyday in Shams restaurant, sitting on these bedouin cushions... More

It is the 3rd time for my wife and me to visit this very nice place. When we need to relax for sometime, we directly think of Sham's Hotel. It is simple, nature and comfortable. Shams and all the staff are friendly and very cooperative .. thank you all.

Our stay at SHAMS hotel was an excellent experience. The room was very clean, quiet and comfortable. It has a balcony (like most rooms) with sea view. Watching the sea and sunrise from the balcony was breathtaking. Locations is excellent, few steps from the reef, shops and restaurants. The hotels arranged for us very attractive activities, such as Bedouin dinner,... More
