Shams Prestige Abu Soma Resort
Ranked #10 of 11 Hotels in Soma Bay
Reviewed January 10, 2012

Shams Prestige 5* is a new boutique-hotel 40 minutes away from Hurghada airport. It is the perfect location if you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. No children are around, no loud music either. The staff is extremely kind and helpful: they clean your room 2-3 times a day! The food at the restaurant is very good and mainly served at the table.
Everyone in the hotel speaks both German (almost all the guests I've seen were German) and English. The quality manager is a German lady indeed.
Even if the hotel does not have any sport fields, gym, disco or animation, you are allowed to very easily drop in the two hotels next to Shams Prestige and enjoy those things, if you want to.
From the hotel, you can reach Luxor temples, the Valley of the Kings as well as go on boat-excursions for snorkeling among the corals. A Diving Center and an Aqua Center are present few meters away.

It has been our best holiday, thus we highly recommend this hotel!

This moderately sized hotel classes itself as "boutique" and compared to it's neighbouring establishments it certainly aims to offer a more personalised and intimate experience. In the main it succeeds with extremely pleasant and accommodating staff and diligent and attentive management. The location is at the far end of the bay from Safaga giving a measure of seclusion. The beach is fine with ample and comfortable sun beds complete with windbreaks. The bay is very tidal and it is possible to wade out for 100 metres or so at low tide. It is a favourite with kite surfers with the Mistral Club adjacent to the hotel and it is entertaining to watch the exploits of both raw novices and the extremely graceful experts!
The superior rooms are generously sized with adjoining dressing rooms and comfortable queen sized beds. Each has a jacuzzi on the terrace and many have good sea views.
The restaurant has a terrace overlooking the pool and the beach and standard of food on offer was generally impressive for an all inclusive establishment and the beach barbecue was exceptional. The waiters, cooks and maitre d were without exception superb. The modestly sized pool was scrupulously maintained as were the gardens and surroundings. All in all a good value week in the dependable Red Sea sun with the cooler evenings being comfortable albeit requiring a warm layer when the breeze got up.
Being the only English guests brought an unforseen benefit as the staff appeared to be Anglophiles to a man! The majority German guests seemed to be enjoying their stay as much as us and this hotel deserves more British custom. Recommended.

Room Tip: Superior rooms with a sea view are well worth the modest premium.
