Property conditions & facilities




10/10 Exceptional

I had a great time at Shark Town. My room (actually more like a small apartment) had everything I needed. The AC unit work great which isn’t always the case when hotels say they have AC. The room and the hotel in general is very well kept and the pool was also always clean. I loved the commitment to the shark theme which can be found all over the grounds! The hotel itself is walking distance from the nearest beach and from town as well. The staff were also fantastic. Management was always friendly and from the moment I arrived I was sent lots of helpful information about the hotel itself and the local surroundings (stores, restaurants, etc). The groundskeeper was also very friendly and always made sure I had everything I needed. I was fortunate enough to stay at the hotel at the same time that the owners were there and they were very friendly, great people. I wish Shark Town all the best and definitely plan on returning. 10/10.

8/10 Very good

It was a bit smaller than it appeared and at first I thought I was gonna hate it because of the motorcycle and ATV traffic on a dusty road. You soon get used to it and it doesnt bother you
