“Lovely time”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

We had planned a very last minute booking at Shams and yet they immediately sent someone to pick us up from the Sharm el Sheikh airport and transport us all the way to Dahab. Our rooms were clean, we had a small ant problem but as soon as we mentioned it the problem was taken care of. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Shams is kind and jovial. The hotel restaurant was very nice and had a lovely view of the ocean so you can sit back relax and enjoy the view. Also there is a dive center that is part of the hotel that I would highly recommend if you want to go diving in Dahab.

I went there in June for the first time and I really loved it. It's a very nice place, the people are nice and friendly and the service is excellent. The food is great too. I've just came back from Dahab, stayed in Shams again and it was amazing again, Thank you for everything and see you soon! :)

I 've stayed for 3 times every time between 4 to 6 days, at the first time I went there the rooms are reinovated & clean latter on other accomodations the rooms were neatly clean and still new. For a quality versus price it is a great deal specially they have options for B&B or Bed only, excellent service (The Owner remembered me & saved my mobile no. when I called him fro the 2nd time he answered me mentioning my name and asked me if I would like to take the same room from last time) also a very friendly staff we manage to prepare an early breakfast for us If we have an early diving trip so that we dont' miss our breakfast, the food was amazing and so delicious. Our whole stay more better than I expected.

Nice and Friendly atmosphere. Very good location and price. Highly recommended for Dahab first timers and for regular Dahab visitors to give a try. Also the website is very useful (they actually reply)

We've stayed for 5 days at the hotel, the rooms were clean and practical. Price was great, excellent service and a very friendly staff. The food was amazing and so delicious. Our whole stay was far more better than we expected. Will be back again soon. Thank you

We stayed at Shams hotel for a week and it was just amazing. The hotel is a great location, parking area, very close to supermarkets and other shops, but you still have a sense of privacy and quietness. Great hosts and service. You defiantly leave as a friend.
We will return again for sure.
