“5-star experience and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

What's there not to like - everything was top notch, food and service, facilities. A sprawling resort with varied activities for all ages. Very attentive staff. The word "no" in their vocabulary - they make it happen. When we ask for something not in the menu, they check with their kitchen and after 20 minutes - voila - it's on your table. The waiters/waitresses seem to know what we need by the 2nd day of our stay. We ordered native cocoa drinks for breakfast at Tides each day. On our last day, we switched to Acqua and when our waiter knew this, he walked from Tides to Acqua to serve us our cocoa drink. His gesture really touched us. Little touches like these are what made our vacation memorable.

This is where Shangri-la serves their breakfast buffet--and it is out of this world DELICIOUS! An international spread of everything you could ever want and more. Definitely one of our favorites within the resort!

“Good Breakfast Buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

I loved the soup bar...it was Amazing.
a few things that I disliked one was that the waitstaff did not know too much English and it got too crowded at 7:15AM and other guest were not very patient and kept shoving.
