Very enjoyable holiday
  • Recommended hotel

  • March 2015
We chose this hotel for the windsurf center (which was very good esp the tuition for my partner. Who was a complete beginner) and because we liked the look of the bungalows on the beach. The hotel exceeded our expectations. The staff without exception were friendly and helpful. We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. read hotel review

This was our 22nd year of staying at Shams Hotel during the winter. This year we stayed for 7 weeks which indicates how happy we are with all the facilities and the atmosphere. The staff from the General Manager to the Beach Boys/Gardners are very friendly and approachable and help towards making it a family friendly atmosphere. We have every intention of returning again next year for a similar amount of time. read hotel review

My family, being rather fussy eaters, were very pleased with the variety and quality of the food. For example the fresh falafels at breakfast time accompanied by the array of fresh food was more than adequate for them. Once a week (Thursday) the management team organised a B-B-Q lunch on the beach. this seemed very popular and informal - great idea ! The evening meal was more formal, and again the choice of hot/cold food was very good. The catering staff were all friendly and members of the management team were always on hand to make sure all was going ... well. The beach was very safe and the marine life was interesting. Loads of sporting activities from putting to kite surfing. All in all a relaxing break. read hotel review

If you only for snorkeling, diving or for a beach holiday with a lot of beach stay bay it is certainly great. The service at the bars the food and the beach bar was super. The employees of the reception were could speak german and very accommodating. Unfortunately the whole area is in our opinion very in need of renovation. The staff tried it but with friendliness again well. And the make the great-). The disco we once visited but there was unfortunately much too dirty. At the time of our visit there were not many guests and if ... you like peace, it was nevertheless already too quiet. So was nine o'clock sleep announced and if you then think 'oh well let's see what the tv new'. There are only two german channels. read hotel review

To 4. the shams hotel, we can the following reports: The hotel is with its set-aside watercourse in the main building and the not more functioning waterfall in the pool area, the unused bar in the 2. level and the slightly worn rooms/bathrooms to look at, that it ' better times' seen. the check-in we were due to the low occupancy other room than was offered. Our rooms were always clean and tidy. The air conditioning worked times better and worse, for us it was always enough. Lack of towels and the posts hair dryer are sometimes only after 2. ... the request brought. A new battery for the safe, and the clogged water drains but were immediately dealt with. The total facilities (pool, garden, beach, restaurants and bars) we liked always again. As a non-smoker would cool februarabend a non-smoking corner in the bar area nice. Many guests go in the evening at the nearby 'shopping' or visit the entertainment programs which were in the disco. The offer to the meals we found very good. There was always something for everyone and possibly salt must, is better than to spicy food. The waiters reserved us kindly 'our' table and for a small tip we got the drinks served in the evening. (on pens and lighters are still a part of the staff, they are all but chocolate toffees or chocolate mint candy inspired.) The entertainment we used not at all. We went nearly every day 8:15 a. m. to the diving station and took the boat up to the sea. (packed lunches are in that styrofoam packaged and always included a cooked meal, some fruit and drinks. It tasted good, but we preferred for 4 Euro per person the freshly prepared food the boat crew - where else can you authentic egyptian food?! ) against 15:00/4:00 p. m. back, you could well on the somewhat bald tranquil Hotel Dolphin beach bar with other guests together and chat. The classic mixed drinks such as radler, Cola Wodka, Gin Tonic are highly recommended, to cocktails with juice we did better. All in all, we recommend this hotel to anyone, not excessive expectations. For younger children, the flat sandy beach ideal, surfing and kite surfing and snorkelling by the beach also offered. read hotel review

Shams - My 2nd Home !
  • Recommended hotel

  • January 2014
Shams consists of a main hotel building and Garden/bungalow rooms. Although the main structures are over 20 years old they are continually being updated and renovated. I have been there over 20 times and have always found the cleaning perfectly acceptable on all levels. The All-inclusive policy works very well and if you require a "special meal" that can be arrange at a nominal cost. The guests vary in nationality and ages. This makes for a really good environment. read hotel review

    Shams' staff have always been very friendly and helpful and we are amazed by the number of different languages they are fluent in. There are the usual services available i.e. Laundry, Spa, Doctor, Animation Team, Massages, Hair-cutting etc.etc. This year I had cause to point out a fault in the shower-unit and within a couple of hours a complete new system had been installed. Brilliant ! !

    The Garden rooms are adjacent to the beach in a beautiful garden setting. The gardens are doing a great job in maintaining them. There are the usual local tourist shops, but for more variety there are trips to Safaga or Hurgarda available. Luxor can be visited from here.

    We were with 3 people (2 adults + 1 child) in a bungalow and had enough space to sleep. The mattresses were comfortable, the safe was immediately working and the air conditioner cooled well. A there is no minibar, but a fridge. The bathroom with bathtub, toilet and sink was large enough and clean. Each bungalow is also a small furnished terrace with clothes line.

    There was a main restaurant, a beach restaurant (for the quick lunch) and three bars (pool, beach, diving center). The quality of the meals is for Egypt and a 4 star hotel adequate and typical for the country, every day we were full - no more and not less. The beverages are not always so cold, as we germans us would wish. Also lacking cocktails at the evening bar. We found the atmosphere than pleasant, tips were not duty. The dining room could have been to eat something better temperature can be (cooler). Our son would the next time a glass of Nutella for breakfast go.

    Our first use of the holiday were the windsurfing conditions can be and they were excellent - shallow water with a sand bank and daily sideshore -wind. Located in front of the hotel, club Mistral has excellent material with the best advice and service. On the hotel area there were pool tables, a ping pong table, 2 tennis courts, 2 squash courts and a mini golf area (all a bit dated). The gym is professional equipped and air-conditioned. The spa area made a very good impression. At the beach there was a Volleyball- and football pitch. In the evening a kids disco and afterwards changing unterhaltsprogramm instead. The beach is well taken care of, the beach chairs and cushions and towels and umbrellas and windfangmatten are a bit dated, serve however their purpose. Shower could have been a little more can give. At the beach many excursions or spa treatments, sometimes annoying. At the pool we were only once. It has us however not to swims invited, because muslimas dressed in the pool sat, which we are not very hygienic found.

    The hotel is situated right by a beautiful sandy beach. Depending on the tide there is beautiful shallows to relax. After 50 meters begins in the deeper water, where it also small coral reefs and thus beautiful snorkelling areas there. From our bungalow for it was a about 50 meters to the beach. To the airport it was 50 kilometer. There is a small shopping street in front of the hotel. The owners are so pushy, that we not 2. once more shopping went. We only went on excursions to snorkels done, as all other excursions due to the political situation was discouraged. The drive with the luxury catamaran was very nice, the tour ' delfinhaus' was a dolphin-hunting and did not please us at all.
