The bed was comfortable but that's all I Iiked about this place. Lots of issues. I will start with the bathroom. Very small, toilets are too low to the floor, no toilet paper holder, also no place to put your bathroom items. In the bedroom the TV is on the wall on one side of the bed so its not... More

Was a nice stay for the price I paid. Room was nice and comfortable for us. Everything we needed was right there. Me and my family enjoy Port A every year in the summer. And we'll definitely book again with shark reef resort!

My friends and I just stayed here this past weekend (end of July) and were pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. This property has many rooms, a nice pool, a great outdoor picnic area with covered tables and grills so you can cook dinner outdoors if you choose to. It's located right down the street from the Ferry and... More

First, booked 3 rooms and asked that they all be close to each other. Was told, "no problem, stay on the line while I make room assignments". Didn't happen, one room was on the complete opposite side of property. Second, room A/C plug catches on fire and shoots flames up the wall! Very rude lady manager tells the guest to... More

First of all, let me say, I HATE writing negative reviews because I hate being THAT person, but I want to be honest. Let me start with the positives: Probably the most important is that they are pet friendly! There is only a small fee for your pets but a lot less than other places I've visited. The family that...

We were a couple- spent four days at this motel- I would not exactly call it a "resort", but we were able to grill out in the shared area, swam after hours because of one of the nice family members there, the laundromat was right beside the motel, and there is a nice homemade "pork-centered" café nearly on the property-...

And that's INSIDE the room.. Large spacious room, with a small window unit a/c that did NOTHING to cool the room. Towels quite literally feel like sandpaper, the bathroom sink wouldn't drain and the floor feels like it is permanently ingrained with sand..so NOT worth more than $69/night.. Find somewhere else, this place is horrible for the price we paid... More

This resort was clean. The beds very comfortable. We had the Honeymoon Suite. Great jacuzzi tub. Nice microwave & mini fridge. Only complaint, was no place to hang up close from our suitcase. Had a small coat type rack. Management and staff very friendly. Highly recommend!

Booked a week here for the family. Went with a cabin instead of just a room. It was plenty big enough for the 4 of us. They provided plenty of towels. And really liked that they didn't service the room unless we asked for it. That meant no one entered our room until we asked for it. This place is... More
