Shams has a lovely relaxed atmosphere, and it benefits from being positioned in a quiet spot by the sea front, within a two minute walk from the central restaurants and shops. This makes it perfect, as you can enjoy the night life of Dahab and have a peaceful place to retreat when you wish to get some sleep yourself! The accommodation is clean and comfortable and you are well looked after during your stay. Shams restaurant provides lovely food and a great selection of breakfasts and juices that you will remember for ever! It's a really chilled place to relax by the lapping red sea and enjoy a post diving drink.
The dive shop is ran in an efficient but relaxed way, so you can get the most out of the diving opportunities available, without ever feeling any pressure to hurry! The equipment is kept in perfect condition - it's all new anyway, and the dive guides and instructors are patient, organised, extremely knowledgeable and very safety conscious (and nice people as well!)
I really enjoyed my stay (March 2013) and would recommend Shams for those looking to dive, rest and relax!
