Our stay was SUPERB! All employees are friendly and helpful. The only cons is there’s no convenient store nearby or inside the resort you need to buy your essentials before going to the Hotel. It’s quite far from the City and grocery store. Food is good as well, I suggest have your breakfast before 7:30 the queu is quite long after that.

We had a perfect stay, as expected the rooms, food and beverage offerings and facilities were all top notch. But what kept me and my partner gushing about the stay were the employees who made this experience truly delightful. Jumaila from Reservations was easy to communicate with and had all things set as requested that made our stay seamless. I was also very happy to see familiar faces such as Sigmund of Front Desk who welcomed me back graciously and even found a way for an earlier check in as he knew we were celebrating a special occasion. Sir Diego of Concierge was a joy to talk to as always and extended his much appreciated courtesy. Sir Prime of Tides made sure to say hi and ask us if we needed anything else to make our dining better. Albert of Cowrie Cove was very professional and friendly, he took great photos and even provided us a surprise cake. I wasn’t expecting this since I already requested for a birthday cake and didn’t want to impose. My partner and I talked at length of how excellent the service was well after dinner. I was not able to get the names of all the Housekeeping staff who did out turn down service and make up room, but you are all appreciated. Every staff went out of their way to greet you, from the gardeners to the managers. Already talking about coming back soon as a group. Thank you for making our stay special!

Whenever you talk about Cebu resorts, Shangrila Mactan sets the bar. I’ve been to other Cebu hotels and yet I still keep coming back to Cebu Shangrila whenever it is for business or leisure trip. This is my fourth visit on this resort and unfortunately the most disappointing based on some observations. 1) The lobby looks dated. There has been no change nor improvement since my last visit six years ago. I was expecting the lobby to have undergone some improvements to keep up with newer hotels. 2) No one was welcoming people coming in the lobby. One way of the best way of making guests feel unwelcome and invisible. And at 8am, the lobby is not even that active. The hotel just forgot to place someone at the front to welcome people. 3) Service is forced. Staff are slow and sloppy. Compared to Shangrila Boracay and The Fort in BGC, the staff here are complacent and NOT PROACTIVE. I am not sure if this is a governance or training issue but management should address this ASAP. I don’t think this is an understaffing issue. The staff number seems adequate. The Shangrila brand distinguishes itself from other hotel brands by its impeccable and top notch service. Shang Mactan seems to be lagging in this area. For someone who’ve stayed at Shangrila Boracay and Shangrila the Fort in BGC, you can’t help but compare . Shangrila Mactan service is below par and it is very noticeable. A call to the front desk would take a minimum of 10 rings for someone to answer as if the front desk is dodging calls. The staff at the beach are not proactive enough to offer towels to guests. You will need to put effort to actually get your own towel. Not a biggie but in other Shangrila resorts this is already automatic to their staff. Boracay and BGC anticipates your needs while Shangrila Mactan staff are very reactive and complacent.i

We had a very pleasant three-night stay at this resort. The property and pools are beautiful, and we also enjoyed the beach area. Other than the outstanding breakfast buffet, our dining experiences were quite average, and quite expensive. Unfortunately there is very little by way of reasonably-accessible dining options outside the resort, within a short distance. We unexpectedly needed to shorten our original four-night reservation to three nights, and were very pleased with the excellent service we received from the front desk in connection with our request, which was accommodated. In addition, we requested a late checkout of 1:00 PM, and were provided a late checkout at 2:00 PM, which, likewise, was greatly appreciated and a very pleasant surprise. The staff throughout the property was extraordinarily nice, polite, and helpful. This is especially true of the very friendly staff during the breakfast buffet. Our room itself, in the Ocean wing, was tired, with peeling wallpaper in several areas, aging shower and bath, and aging furniture. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay, and would return, on another three or four night stay.

Great facilities and you have your own private beach. The food was amazing for buffet breakfast and dinner. Great cultural show at night. Very accommodating staff especially the ones in the pool area. The room is good with free toiletries. Wi-Fi and hot shower/tub works and great view of the sea. The only downside during my stay is that I was overcharged on my credit card and had to follow-up with them to get feedback on the refund. They didn’t bother to notify that it has been processed already.

I've been here for several times specially before pandemic I can say they wwre able to maintain the beautiful ambiance of the whole resort what a great job to housekeeping, landscape maintenance team and most specially to the superb service of the pool life guard Nelius whos been doing a superb 5 stars service like before you ask for a hotel the towel is already in your hands i never experienced that on my Shangrila resort visits even in Boracay, Makati and Edsa Shangrila keep up the amazing job Nel! Almost everything was fantastic during my stay my only concerns is the food I dont know if its only me but seems the food on ala carte was not that tasty like my previous visit before pandemic me and my friend ordered hawaiian pizza, buttered chicken and etc. Hope someone could check your foodies so that everybody will be happier on their stay. But overall thank you Shangrila Mactan for making our stay unforgettable.

We stayed at Shangrila Mactan for an overnight stay before our flight to Boracay. Check in was smooth and staff were really helpful in sorting our luggages from the airport til we got in to our room. We were greeted with welcome drinks of local ‘kalamansi’ juice which was very refreshing. Mactan has not long recovered from a typhoon calamity which badly affected the area around the hotel including closure of some of the neighbouring resorts. Our room was clean and spacious with a great view of the ocean. We booked a dinner buffet which was really good. They actually served a whole suckling pig and was presented beautifully through dancing by the restaurant staff- we thought it was the highlight of the evening seeing a mini ‘sinulog’ dancing but with lechon :-) we also had a surprise that the ex-president of the Philippines is also in the premises. The beach was very nice and clean though background music was on the loud-side trying to encourage guests to dance on the beach. We slept comfortably. Comes breakfast, it was an absolute chaos with too many people. We queued for breakfast and were asked to wait 15 minutes until some tables are vacated. But this is understandable as other resorts in the area are unavailable. Overall it we had an enjoyable stay. Thank you
