“Nicest hotel I've ever stayed at!”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

This hotel is clean with super friendly staff who go out of their way to make sure you have a pleasant and enjoyable stay. I would say that the hotel is best suited for 18-30s as there isn't really much for children to do, excepet at the beach etc which is only a few minutes walk away. The local shops and bars etc are just around the corner (literally), making the nightlife but a short walk away but weirdly you can't hear any of the hustle and bustle from the hotel which is nice if you fancy a quiet night in. The hotel is in a perfect location and I can't reiterate how friendly the staff are. The manager befriended us very quickly and would recommend the best boat trips, restaurants, shops etc. He would even hang out with us in the pool! The waiters and bar staff are all friendly, efficient and the hotel is kept spotless! I raved on an on about the hotel when I returned home and now one of my other friends has booked her holiday at Shark Club based on my review - i really do reccommend it. For the small price you are paying - you really do get more than your money's worth! The animation team make great efforts to include everyone and getting them involved with games/watersports and nights out etc. Wide variety of food - all sorts of meat and vegetarian dishes, breakfasts and desserts. Endless types of salad. There is something for everyone - even fussy eaters (e.g. burger and chips)

Myself and my partner stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks In October 2012. The hotel is clean and modern, the rooms are of an excellent standard for turkey.
The room we had, had a double and a single bed, a small bathroom with an excellent power shower, and a hair dryer, and a good sized wardrobe and dresser. The disappointing hting about the rooms are the balconys are way to small to sit on, and our room overlooked a busy road. (The hotel was full so we wcould not move)
Entertainment in the hotel during the day was to the bare minimum, There were 2 "entertainers" Jay Jay and Speedy(Murat) but they often appeared to hung over to organise entertainment and the guests took it upon them selves to organise water polo games and other poolside activities. These activities were good fun but I think the entertainers should have been organising them.
There is evening entertainment on everynight, but this is on very late and the all inclusive often finished before it was over. the entertainment raned from miss and MR shark competitions to traditional turkish dancing ( we didnt enjoy this night)
The food in the hotel is typical turkish food, therre is always a great selection of salads, and they definately excel at their deserts, but the main meals did get repetative. (but in 2 weeks i have never been anywhere that didnt) The food on offer was always of an excellent standard and i could always find somehting i liked.
Location wise you cant beat it, your a 2 mins walk from restaurants bars and shops, and the beach is about a 5 minute walk away, ( thre is a steep but short hill at the entrance to the hotel so if you have walking problems this may cause issues)
I would definately go back to this hotel, but I would hope the animation team will have changed to someone who is interested in entertaining guests, and I would also hope the hotel invests in more seating outside of the restaurant ( if you werent down early you didnt get a seat)

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool so you dont end up overlooking the main road

Hi just came back from a week at this hotel ,well what can I say except don't bother .no day time entertainment only one person called Speedy by the pool playing music and then darts twice by the pool, rooms tidy but not cleaned properly whilst we were there ie shower screen had stains from soap all over it ,bed sheets didn't fit bed properly and food was bad ,boring and lack of variety no flavour was ok if you liked meatballs in different shapes and dry chicken cos it was over cooked ,even served chips for breakfast cos as manager said they were closing for end of season and had to balance the books ,we paid the same price to stay in this hotel in October as in June yet we had no choices in food it was so bad people were going out of the all inclusive hotel to buy food in the village ,even speedy the so called entertainer and some other people bought in McDonald's to eat by the pool ,

Room Tip: Do not go to this hotel food is bad ,no entertainment only good thing was Turkish bath and massage...

Just got back 25/10 - 1/11/12 The only good thing I can say about this hotel is that it was clean. I went with my daugther and her 3 children and we had 2 rooms just down the corridor from reception and everyone who came in to the hotel we heard. It was about 5 a.m. when it was quiet! The food was basic and repetative, there was absolutely nothing for the children and yet everywhere else my daughter has been all inclusive there has been entertainment for the children. This hotel is too small to be a/inclusive. There was nowhere to sit in the evening! We had one night of entertainment which consisted of Speedy's friends doing break dancing and bingo which we had to pay for and that was it for the whole week! Some of us felt that the staff were just waiting for us to go as the hotel was closing for the season that week. I don't reccomend it if you have good taste! The tour rep told us lies! He said that the Pamukkale tour was 2 and a half hours and it turned out to be 10 and a half hours on the coach. The guide on the coach wasn't surprised so I presume that everyone is lied to. Luckily my 3 grandchildren are well behaved.The surrounding area of Gumbet wasn't very clean and you have dogs following you everywhere.(My grandchildren were playing spot the turd on the pavements)! If you are planning on staying here either take sleeping tablets with you or get drunk every night.

Room Tip: Do not have a room anywhere near reception!

Fantastic Hotel, great location, VERY clean and the staff all very helpful and polite. The food was basic, but there was something for all tastes. Breakfast was yummy, try the fresh pancakes and sour cherry jam!. The pool area was compact, but kept spotless, however the music played by the hotel's entertainment team was inappropriate for anyone under the age of 18. My son has learnt a few new words, but after two requests to change the swearing raping it was done...only to return a few days later!. That said our party of six adults and one 10 year old had a super time here and would not hesitate to recommend Shark Hotel!
