We had a stay with a bit of mixed feelings. Our kids loved it, (except the food), we - the adults - enjoyed it too - overall.
The rooms are comfy
The 3 different pools
The kids club
The general staff attitude
Beautiful sunsets, and 2 beautiful beaches, one facing the ocean/reef and one facing the lagoon.
Having stayed at Shangri-La in other parts of the world, this one did not live up to my expectations - at all.
It could do with a major overhaul, although its not exactly at the point where I would call it dilapidated.
The food is just terrible. Having been warned about the food prior to us going, I was thinking that it cant be that bad, after all it is a Shangri-La. Even so, we were still disappointed. If food, other than french fries and pizza (both of which they do decently), is important to you then I would not chose this hotel.
The prices are exorbitant, considering the quality of food.
There are not many excursions taking their starting point around the hotel, so you have to spend 1 hour going into Nadi to get one of the yacht cruises out to the islands.
We feel that Shangri-La offer poor value for money when it comes to quality of its food offerings, making it an only average stay experience.
We are still positive, but for the money we paid, we expected more. Having travelled extensively over Asia and elsewhere, we feel that S.E. Asia offer much better value for money.
