Thank you!

We were allowed to check in a little early with no problem. Our casita was clean, but we managed to track in beach sand. We wished the casita had a broom and dustpan in the closet so we could have swept up some. We would definitely stay here again. Having a full kitchen was such a blessing for my family. It makes mealtime so much easier and less expensive. The pool was very nice to use also. Thank you Shark Reef Resort for maintaining such a great place for my family.

Camping like experience

A bed in a shelter. Not much better than a tent. You must run the air conditioner to block the noise. Pool looked nice. Too bad they haven't put any money into the rooms. Roughest towels we have ever seen anywhere.
