It was a very good place to stay, we stayed there for 4 days & it was very good, the rooms were clean & the quality of service was pretty good, when I am visiting Dahab again sure this will be first destination.

I always go to Dahab for diving in very good, unique and amazing dive location. I spent three days with my one of my friends in Shams Hotel and also dive with his dive center, the hotel was quiet, warm and lovely. I always love the seat in his lovely restaurant with sea view and nice weather. Our dives were so good. I will repeat it again each time visit Dahab

I just LOVED Dahab, it blew me off by it's amazing views, the quietness, that sense of familiarity in a very good sense. People there are really nice and friendly, better than many other places I've been to in Egypt.
Shams Hotel is really cozy,comforting and beautiful.
Thanks for your hosting =)

Me and a group of friends stayed there last month and had a fantastic time.... Not only is the hotel clean and the restaurant fantastic, the owners and the staff are all very polite and helpful and can arrange airport pickups from sharm.... the restaurant on the sea serves fantastic breakfast as well as all day meals.....they are close to the bustling center so that you feel you are close to all the action but far enough so u dont hear all the noise and the crazy clubbing all night that happens around the mashraba...i will definitely be staying there again...

This was my 4th stay at Shams Hotel in Dahab and, despite travelling there on my own this year, yet again I didn't want to leave.
It is perfectly situated on the promenade with amazing views from the restaurant and shops behind the hotel so you can get anything you need.
I dived with Shams Diving Centre while I was there and also arranged a trip to the Coloured Canyon through hotel owner, Shams, who also lent me a small backpack to carry my water and camera etc for the trip. It really is a one stop shop for activities in Dahab.
I didn't look at staying anywhere else when booking my holiday to Dahab as have always enjoyed my holidays at Shams and it now feels like a home away from home, with many of the same staff greeting you year after year - always a good sign!
I look forward to going back next year !!
