Hotel Shams Safaga
  • Recommended hotel

  • Beach holiday
  • June 2015
Very comfortable and beautiful, clean sand beach with the some corals and fish. Suitable for children too. Service is rather good without borrowing. But unfortunately there is no possibility to go shopping and to go around the city. It is far from the main sightseeing areas around Egypt. There is the good diving club in the territory of hotel. You will have a chance to see very beautiful places. Animation is good. read hotel review

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

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

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

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
