had the best holiday here!! Stayed for two weeks with my 3 friends and my boyfriend and could not recommend the hotel more. Everything from start to finish was good for us!
the staff throughout the hotel cannot do more to help you, anything you ask for they will do if possible as quickly as you need. The food in the restaurant is good for each meal- we really loved the egyptian nights and also the breakfast. The beach is very beautiful and there’s a relaxing area also if you want to be away from the other guests so you can sleep or sunbathe in peace. Every day the wonderful animation team put on different activities that you can take part in- we really loved stretching and also aqua gym which was in the sea.

Our room was located near the beach also so easy access out in the morning and you don’t have to worry about people reserving all the beds as it’s not allowed, the room was clean and the room boy was very good also

All in all we will return to the hotel for sure as this was one of the best holidays we’ve had

I stayed at the Shams Resort Hotel for a 2 week holiday. The hotel is spotless when you walk in the main reception. Then I was shown to my bungalow on the front row which was
a lovely airy space with a great view onto the beach. The food at the restaurant is absolutely fantastic and delicious. Waiters and chefs all very friendly and helpful. The Animation team was great on the beach during the day and in the evenings back in the hotel.
I'm a fully transitioned trans female travelling alone and was made to feel welcome with no hastle at all. I felt at ease and safe here and recommend it to other trans people looking for a great holiday.

Very poor quality hotel, very old, requiring renovation although quite clean. The air conditioning is so old that it works like a tractor, you can't sleep next to it. The shower cubicle is so small that you can't lift your arms in it, equipped only with rain showers, which is annoying. First we got a room on the 3rd floor without a lift, the reception phone didn't work, the condition of the room was tragic. Then they changed our family room to two small rooms. Zero equipment in the room, they only give you 2 small bottles of water for the entire stay. Tragedy. The pools are quite ok, but the ones for children are very short-lived with long breaks. At 5 pm the pools for children are closed and only open at 10 am with a 2 hour break. The food is poor, there is almost nothing to eat at breakfast, lunches are similar, dinners are a bit better, but also nothing revolutionary. Almost no fruit, only melon and dates. No toast, no seafood, almost no cold cuts. Only soups and sometimes beef are edible, apart from that it's a disaster. Drinks are just a drink with alcohol without any additives. The internet works as if it didn't exist. This is probably the worst hotel I've ever been to. I won't return to this resort.

Travelled to Egypt this August, and stayed at the Shams Safaga Hotel.
The hotel itself was beautiful - the views, the grounds. The rooms were a bit worn down, however, housekeeping would always ensure that everything was clean and tidy. The pool area was great - many different sized pools and water slides, which were really fun. The staff were always helpful and polite. My one fault with the hotel was the food, for me it was quite repetitive and bland, however that just comes down to preference. Overall, was an amazing stay, filled with great memories! Would defo recommend.

Loud pool music during day and night is very disturbing. Restaurant area is very noisy and not a nice place to eat, food mediocre at best. WiFi only for high extra fee, bad signal. Rooms are not soundproof, neighbors' TV or talking hearable.

Clean. Attentive service. Nice garden area with palm trees etc.

We have stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks and haven't been disappointed even once. We have really enjoyed the food, the hotel staff was always friendly and extremely helpful, the beach is sandy and clean, so one can enjoy swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing at all times, the animation team is fun and creative.
We have stayed here 4 times and we'll be back again for sure.
It's above all praise.
Special thanks to chefs of the restaurant and the waiter Abdo, the barman Attia and to animation guys Nokia and Ceasar. You made our rest unforgettable and really enjoyable.

Amazing relaxing stay, with good atmosphere and kind stuff. Starting from welcoming reception, delicious food with big variety (with some meals prepared just in front of you, by friendly chefs, which you can always ask for some recipes), many places to get a drink, comfortable rooms with everyday cleaning service (that can surprise everyone with art they do with towels) and selected for hotel guests beach with close up sea, full of corals and fishes. Every evening there's some attractions around the swimming pool, but if you want quiet place, there's also place for you

I will start from the best, so that was food which is very delicious here and there is also a lot of to choose from and also the stuff here is friendly and try their best almost everyone.
The sea and the beach is beautiful here only way downside is that there are a lot of sellers on the beach that will disturb you every time and even when you told them that you are not interested.

At the resorts, there are a lot of cows. I don’t know if it’s frequent here but their are pretty noisy.

Now, maybe the worse part which is rooms.
The room we got a little bit older than the rest of our rooms available here by the way it is different from what we were presented in prospect when we ordered this hotel my bad is that I didn’t mention it once I got it to be honest, we were pretty tired from the trip which was about maybe 6 to 7 hours in total and also we waited sometime on reception before we got even any room so in that moment you are grateful for everything but with time you understand it it is not four stars at all.
So what is wrong with the room?
The room itself is old as I have said.
The bathtub is broken (it is cracked and painted over) I have said this to hotel staff and he said it is okay that I don’t need to worry.
The room is clean and cleaning services are good, but everything in here is old and oxided, quality is not good either, the beds are relatively comfortable but they are old as well and they make squeaks sounds.
Other than that we have enjoyed our vacation so overall I can recommend I guess but maybe there is something better to choose.

The location of the hotel is great, nice beach!
The animation team was very great and friendly. We hade a safe club experience with them.
Unfortunatelly the rooms are quite old and the beach chairs really need to be replaced with newer ones.

A very positive aspect is, that the hotel was clean all the time, altough there were a lot of guests.
