“A great fantastic hotel to stay in!”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed for 12 nights at the shark hotel. The reception staff were very helpful and welcoming. The maids were professional and courteous. The restaurant staff welcoming and cheerful and the restaurant manager (Mehmet) particularly going out of his way to make sure everyone is looked after, the table service was fast and efficient. As I am on the subject of the restaurant I should say that the food was fantastic you couldn't wish for more variety of hot and cold food. The people that say the food wasn't good will be the ones you see sat in reception waiting for their McDonalds to be delivered. If you live on takeaway etc then the food may not be for you (although burgers and chips are served throughout the afternoon at the poolside bar) but if you are looking for variety of good food then look no further! The pool area was clean and waiters constantly patrol to keep it so. The rooms were clean, good powerful shower etc. The gym was adequate. Be weary of the usual first morning after your arrival welcome meeting with your rep, they will try to (take advantage of your tiredness) sell you excursions that you can find cheaper in the local shops. If you are friendly to the staff they will go out of their way for you. Overall a great holiday and lets face it the hotel where you stay is vital to ensuring your break is what you had hoped for.... At the Shark hotel it really is. I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

Room Tip: Try to get a pool facing room.

I stayed at this hotel with a friend and two fifteen year old boys. All in all we had a great holiday!

Rooms: very clean, adequate space, great showers and the added bonus of a hair dryer!

Food: not the best, but this is an all inclusive resort and you don't expect fine dining at the Ritz!! It was on a par with any other all inclusive I have stayed in. There was never a day when I couldn't find something I liked. Excellent choices of fruit and salad every day.

Cleanliness: excellent - one of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in.

Service: excellent. The staff are attentive, friendly and exceptionally hard working.

Animation: the activities by the pool could be better. Kelly (especially) and Mim are the best part of the animation team and went out of their way to socialise and engage. Victoria was also pleasant. However, on our last day the manager of the animation team - Sergio, quite publicly shouted at and upset Kelly. It was unprofessional and ruined our last day. He is a miserable man who did not make any effort to engage the holiday makers and was, to be honest, useless at his job. We asked whether it would be possible for water aerobics to be add to the schedule (Kelly had agreed to do it if Sergio allowed it and was enthusiastic about it) but he said no!

All in all I would highly recommend this hotel - I would definitely go again!!!

me and my boyfriend stayed in the club shark for two weeks from the 1st of august to the 16th and when it came to leaving we were both distraught! since coming back to Wales we have both said we would head straight back to Gumbet and stay in the club shark without any hesitation!
This hotel really is one of the nicest hotels i've stayed in, because of its cleanliness and especially because of all the people that work there. Sergio and his team of amazing animation girls, Kelly, Vicky and Miriam, made the days and evening full of fun and it was lovely to spend time with them just around the pool having a joke. they're not too forward and just want to make sure your enjoying your holiday.
I have never seen a hotel as well kept and cleaned as often as the club shark! throughout the day and night there will always be someone cleaning around the pool thoroughly cleaning the dining room area and the bar. if you leave a drink on a table that is empty you can assure that within 10 minutes it will be gone. they are very assertive and the pool boys and restaurant staff are lovely and work so incredibly hard!
cant forget Ozzy and Romeo! on our first day we had a turkish bath in the hotel that is run by Ozzys brother, this was my first turkish bath and i don't think i could go back to turkey now without one! it was amazing! (and for being pale skinned i'm swearing that its the reason i didn't burn all holiday and i now have a lovely brown tan!) and Romeo one of the hardest workers on the bar you cant say anything bad about him! such a lovely guy and we will miss him a lot with everyone else.
as everyone has commented on the food i'll say it as it was for us, when i go to turkey i want to enjoy turkish food. I'm not a fussy eater so we didn't find it a problem at all we ate mainly in the hotel and then on the second week when we did find we wanted a change we ate out a few nights, which i would think is fair as it was nice for a change. if you eat out you MUST visit peters place, its fab and cant say a bad work about it!!
definitely going back here and cant wait to see everyone again!!

Not long returned here from a weeks stay. Other friends of mine had stayed here in June this year so I knew what to expect from the hotel, but I was very impressed with it overall. The staff are so friendly and literally cannot do enough for you. Mehmet the service manager is lovely and always takes time out to speak to everyone to make sure you are having a good holiday. The food is ok, lots of chicken and salads available! although it gets a bit bland after a week stay, its certainly edible. Slightly annoying that had to get up extra early to reserve sun lounger but in peak season I suppose this is to be expected. Hotel is a 2 minute walk from Bar Street but surprisingly you can't hear any of the music when you are coming in! Me and friend had one of the best weeks staying here and cannot wait to return next year!! Keep up the good work Shark....

After the initial settling-in period of about two days this place became fantastic. We stayed there from 4/8 for 14 nights and the crowd were great.

Very sociable hotel which is a good base to enjoy your holiday anyway you want too.
Always kept very clean with plenty hot water from the walk in power showers. Bedding was changed and made up daily and towels replaced every day. 10 out of 10 to the cleaners of this place.

There is enough to eat and drink for any ones taste, and on top of the hotel meals you can go by free taxi to the local restaurants for a T-Bone, Mexican, Indian, Italian or Sunday lunch for two for less than £30 with drinks.

I would say the hotel is more 30 – 70 rather than 18 – 30. But the whole resort is built for all ages and you can have it any way you like. The resort is hilly and the Shark club is up a slight incline so if you do have walking problems head for a hotel on the beach front.

The Shark Club is modern and compact, situated just across the road from the lively Bar Street. Hoping to get back around May next year for more fun.

Tip: Get a photo shoot done from the professional photographer at the hotel.

Room Tip: If you’re not used to the heat keep off the 4th floor and ask for a room looking onto the pool if po...

Just arrived back in the UK from spending a week at the Hotel Shark. In total there were 11 of us; mixture of couples and single males and females between the ages of 18 and 31, one of the girls was also pregnant. After reading the reviews before we arrived it was confident I was going to have a good week and this didn't change. Everything about the hotel was fantastic the rooms, cleanliness and the hospitality was first class. The food had mixed reviews from the group, no one was ill from the food and it was always cooked and very hygienic. For some people they just found it a little bland, but to be honest for what we paid you can't really expect anything else. It was slightly annoying that at 10PM you can only get one drink per person but to be honest that was our signal to head into Gumbet.

Room Tip: I had rung him a week before to ask some questions and asked for pool view. We got room 101 which wa...
