I've been there several times. What I like in Shams is that they're neat and clean. They keep their rooms tidy and the staff is extremely friendly. Breakfast is good and the view outside is magical. I highly recommend this place if you're going to Dahab.

A lovely place to stay with incredibly helpful and friendly staff. I stayed at a double room with a friend, it was spacious, comfortable and clean. It is a short walking distance from the market place and shopping area and restaurants. Would definitely go there again.

Pleasant environment, very friendly staff, good food, immediate response when you ask for something, comfortable beds and just a nice hotel overall. It's also right in the middle of the city so there's plenty of places where you can go eat and do all sorts of activities.

I enjoyed my time over there. The place is very nicely located, the food in the breakfast is really good but best of all was the personnel. Very welcoming, friendly, and helpful people are running the place. The diving session was also really good!

Very attentive, flexible (thank you for allowing us having breakfast a bit later than it was supossed to be!), friendly and cool staff. The location is perfect: along the promenade, in a short walk you are in the center and from the restaurant and terrace you can see, feel and enjoy the sea, the waves, the sun calmly. My friends...
