Convenient location to explore the area

Well received facilities

In general, the complimentary breakfast is considered sufficient, the heated pool is pleasant and the picnic area - complete with barbeque grills - is regarded as a nice place to relax and have a meal.

Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi surcharge a disappointment

As Wi-Fi typically comes as standard with most hotels in the United States, it is understandable that many have been disappointed at the surcharge imposed for using the wireless Internet at the Shark Reef Resort. With that said, there have been few qualms about the overall quality of the Wi-Fi.

Noise a nuisance

A variety of former guests were affected by troublesome noise during their stay at the hotel. While the purportedly thin walls were guilty of letting in external noise, the main source for this particular negative was from the overly loud air conditioning units.

Minor issues with the bathroom

Along with the water temperature being questioned on the odd occasion, a number of previous visitors have brought up issues with the private bathrooms at the Shark Reef Resort. Limited toiletries, blemished shower curtains and a lack of electrical outlets are some problems mentioned in the past.
