Awesome Vacation at the ShangriLa!!!!
This was our second time here and now I hope we can return again. Everything about this resort is fantastic, the pools, the restaurants, the beach and the rooms. We loved hanging out in our hammocks everyday, looking out at the water. Swimming at the beach was great when it wasn't too windy and rough. The pools were never crowded, so we mostly had them to ourselves. Staff were gracious, prompt and friendly. Food yummy with the exception of one night. The musical entertainment during dinner was excellent and a nice touch. It was walking distance to the town center for great live music venues, dancing and/or clubbing.
There is a rumor that this place will be knocked down, so I suggest that you stay here while it still exists. It is a great value and worth every cent.
We all loved it tremendously!!!!
