Is there wallboard where the soap dish was, or is there a whole in the wallboard where the soap dish was?

Remove whatever cut tiles you have there so you can fill it in with full tiles. Scrape or sand the adhesive thats remaining as flat as you can get it. Use a modified thinset to replace tiles as needed. I'm not sure what else your looking for so if I missed something, ask away.
