Just returned from a weeks stay at Hilton Sharks Bay. After religiously reading these reviews in the build up to my holiday i thought it was only fair i would write my own when i returned.
Firstly, if you are traveling with Thomas Cook, it comes with a great benefit in the form of AMR the rep. He is exactly what you would need in a rep, offering you use of his laptop or mobile freely if needed and completely understands any needs you have.
As soon as you arrive at the Hotel is it clear that the staff are very well experienced and make you instantly feel safe and welcome, taking you in a golf cart to your room whilst also showing you around the resort.
We decided to stay in the old side, the room was average and had everything that you needed however if we returned we would definitely stay in the new side as the the rooms seemed much more modern. We did however prefer the pools and bars on the new side and the beach was also really close by. Traveling between both sides can be tiresome in the heat, however there is a bus service that goes between hotels that comes in great use.
The animation team around the pool are brilliant and make your day each time they come around! Special mention to Micho, who was so funny and even got launched in the pool and found it hilarious each day!!!!
The only downfall of the hotel is the food! Breakfast time is the worst with only bread and lurpack butter being familiar! Lunch is not too bad but dinner is awful with the only english food being chip, which were not cooked like they should be. We gave it a go though for the first two nights however we then got really iill and couldn't face the food no-more.
Luckily McDonalds and Pizza Hut deliver, call from your room and they call when they arrive at the gate! The food is same as english and also priced the same! Little tip for the delivery driver and he made sure your food was there faster the next night!
Finally Quad Biking trip is reccomended as it was amazing!!!
