I would to thank the staff for taking so good care of me and my husband. This is our second time staying here and anything I have asked for the Staff and Richard, they try to provide. When visiting family we have decided that we like having our own place. Two years ago we stayed in #6 and this year... More

Five of us stayed in June 2015. Shark Cove Suites is a bit of a drive across town from the ferry but shark signs point the way and they got us there OK. We liked the location, which is conveniently close to the ferry between Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. There is also a restaurant (owned by same management as Shark... More

I always thought all of the rooms in the PAB were expensive because of the inadequacies of Marine Atlantic & the number of people who get stuck there. Lo & behold, I found people saying the Shark Cove Suites were a good deal & there it was $85+tax for two bedrooms and they didn't ask how many people were coming.... More

We traveled for 2 weeks with our 2 children and 2 dogs, by the time we got to Port Aux Basque, we were sick of the attitudes and substandard rooms you are given when you travel with kids and pets. This was one of the only places that greeted us with the most amazing hospitality, while not treating us any... More

I stayed here my first night in NL and I was very impressed with both the room and food! Very large and clean for the price with fast and friendly service. The scenery right off the ferry had me glad I picked NL for my vacation! If lucky enough to return I will stay at Shark Cove Suites again without... More

We booked this room because we arrived in PAB at 6:30pm. We had hoped to cook supper in the unit but no grocery stores open in town on Saturday evening, so we ate at Tim Horton's. The place was very large, a full apartment, not just an efficiency unit. All appliances and utensils needed were there. There were only 4... More

We come to Newfoundland almost every summer on the ferry, and we always stay at Shark Cove. Convenient, clean, comfortable and homey. Well equipped kitchen. And it's pet friendly. Great value. We love it.

I don't by any means have extremely high standards but I hate to say, Shark Cove Suites was well below what I was expecting. We decided to stay at Shark Cove for 2 nights to have the convenience of a kitchen and to save money on eating out. No luck there - we had 2 forks total and a couple... More

I've stayed there during the Chamber Expo the weekend of May 11th. I couldn't believe walking into our "2 bedroom suite" that we were actually staying in an apartment! Talk about space and clean too! We were in number 3..couldn't have asked for more! There are the little things you could nit pick about but they really aren't worth it!... More
