The food taste was not good but comparing to the prices it's fine. I suggest if the breakfast is included in the room rate then it should be an open buffet instead of choosing from the...

We stayed in the Bungalow, everything was absolutely lovely, staff were very prompt and helpful. Only thing is the water in the shower was always cold! but that shouldn't be a problem in the summer. Would surely go again.

It's not Sheraton or Swiss in, it's a hotel that will allow you to live the Dahabian lifestyle. The service was excellent and our stay was pretty nice and comfortable. The breakfast was awesome. I wish to go back to Shams hotel again.
