Do they grade the beach???

Was at Shangri-La the end of January and am going back in 2 weeks. Just checked out the webcam and the beach looks totally different. It is wider and the drop-off is gone. Is this due to different seasons/tides or do they perform maintenance on the beach? It looks fantastic - I can't wait to go back!!!

no maintanance is performed on the beaches of playa apart from regular cleaning, what you see is the tides and season doing its thing. Playa Mamitas which is next to the Shangrila is the best in playa and alwas has been.

I'll grade the beach. Mamitias and everything north of the longboat dock is a 10. Downtown from Puerto Real to the ferry dock is a 7. All along the Playcar All Inns is a 3 right now, except for the furthest south by the Gala which rizes to an 8.

Maybe next year the All Inns will all be back to 9's. Only Mother Nature knows.
