I visited Dahab many times and this was my very first visit to Shams. Rooms/huts were super clean, smells really good and well prepared. Amazing breathtaking restaurant, the service was great, food was delicious and the staff were very courteous and polite. I would certainly recommend it for everyone; rates were reasonable compare to other less qualities hotels.

This was my first time in Dahab and this lovely hotel made it an overall awesome experience. It is very cozy and the hotel owner serves the guests himself. The rooms are spacious, the bathroom is clean and the crew is friendly. The food is also very good and the location is perfect. Reasonable prices. It is highly recommended.
