I was drawn to Shark Reef Resort because I support family owned businesses. I find they protect their livelihood by offering superior customer service, impeccable cleanliness and that they take great pride in their product. Usually. Shark Reef failed on all three points. We stayed in the Catamaran room (149). It appeared exactly as shown on the website -- with... More

I do not normally take the time to write a review but after reading the negative on just posted not long ago I felt the need to stress how well Jennifer and her staff have taking care of my family.

This rating gets one star because the owner is very kind. We rented a brand new one bedroom cottage & full kitchen with daily towel and toiletries service, weekly cleaning service and daily breakfast. The service, however, is very lousy. The Showtime channel advertised is not available. The breakfast advertised is available only slightly sporadically, towels are not provided as... More

I’ve stayed in many hotels on the Island. The hotels I’ve stayed in all had something about them that made me want to try a different place. The last hotel I stayed had a sweet deodorant smell; another place had damp carpeting, low water pressure, ect. When I return to the Island I will book with The Shark Reef again.... More

The place was a great value as we had a stay 3 nights/4th night is free. Perfect for families. Had a nice pool. Picnic area with grills and tables under the trees. Only complaint is that the floor could have been swept while we were there. Definitely would stay again. Great location.

We stay here all the time, and it gets better each time. Continental breakfast (FREE!) a nice warm pool, a play yard for my son, and the nicest of housekeepers I've ever met! Jennifer really has outdone herself with the recent renovations of her property, and she just keeps making it better and better! We rented a little "Casita", one... More

The staff is ALWAYS working to keep things clean, EVERYONE is very friendly and accommodating. We have never had any problems and cannot wait to go back there every year. I like the fact there is a pool, the... More

If rates are based on quality of rooms- $5 would be too much! Too many things to list that didn't work or was not available such as a Phone! l no place to put clothes in dresser drawers was from the sixties and drawers did not for so they had to stack then on floor. The A/c unit was so... More

We were going to camp on the beach but it was way too windy. We saw this place around 11am and asked and they had some vacancies. The first room we walked into we were greeted by about 5 big roaches. I asked to be moved and she gladly moved us and offered to give us our money back if... More
