We spent two weeks at Shams hotel. Basically for diving there, we were overwhelmed by the charming staff and the kindness of the whole crew. The owner helps you for whatsoever (e.g. taxi service from Sharm el Sheikh to Dahab) and takes really care (you almost feel like being his personal guest). The rooms are clean and the location is quiet, not to close to the moving and loud centre, but reachable within 5 minutes walking distance. The hotel is right at the beach and if you sit in the restaurant there is nothing between you and the sea. Having the diving centre aside makes things even more relaxed and easy. Not to forget: pricing is really fair! Definitely a place to come again. We say thank you to Shams and his crew for the great time in Dahab!

I stayed at Shams Hotel for two weeks in July 2012. It pleasantly surprised me that the rooms are super clean. The rooms are air-conditioned and there was a nice seaview from the balcony, although I prefer going down to Shams Restaurant to enjoy the view. Staff were all very friendly and the prices are very reasonable. Sometimes you may miss a pool or sunbeds (especially if you were to travel with children), but then you can just go out and explore some other parts of beautiful Dahab and guaranteed you will find what you look for in no time! All in all I can recommend this hotel as a good basic hotel with excellent price - quality ratio.

I stayed here for 12 days with a group and thought it was lovely.The sea view rooms are the best. The staff are really friendly and attentive. The food is great and the towel animals that the room cleaning staff make are amazing. I would recommend the hotel to all.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view room if possible
