“peaceful and relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2011

A family of 2 adults and 2 children stayed for 3 days & 2 nights. It was a perfect time...enjoying the peaceful surroundings. Our deluxe suite was beautiful with a view of the ocean. Room was very ample spaced and service was impeccable. Staff was very friendly and respectful. We had a great time.

Room Tip: For regular rooms (not villas) request room on 4th & 5th floor for best ocean views

If you are looking for a little isolation from the busy main beach of Boracay, this is the place to go. It has everything a luxury hotel can offer. I like that they escort you the minute you step off the plane and into their lounge before taking the private speedboat straight to the hotel. If you feel like going to the main beach for some peoplewatching, shopping, or more (and cheaper) food choices, you can always take the free shuttle to D'Mall. If you can't wait for the shuttle, you can take a private shuttle for a fee. One thing though, their buffet breakfast isn't anything special but you really have no choice unless you are willing to take a trip to the main beach for better food. Overall, it was a nice short break.

Spent easter 2011 at the shangri la. We took our 2 year old and our 3 month old, so it was never going to be relaxing, but it was fantastic. The pool is perfect for kids and adults, the varity of food spot on, and service is great. Kids play area also brilliant - think dad enjoyed the slide more than anyone else. The staff look out for the kids - and weary parents every moment of the day. Rooms were lovely with postcard views of the sea. Can't fault it at all, was exactly what we wanted and what we got. Wish it was a bit cheaper so i could go more often - but understand providing such good service comes at a cost.

Was really impressed with the food and drink - always good value which you don't often see at a 5* resort.

It's a joke that this hotel is not ranked #1 on Tripadvisor. Shangri-La's Boracay Resort & Spa is probably the nicest resort in the Philippines and perhaps in Southeast Asia.

We experienced the following highlights from our 3 day stay:

- Amazing views, beach location, and pools
- Thoughtful in-room amenities (i.e. robes, water, slippers, fruit, etc.)
- Free shuttle to town
- Great breakfast buffet
- Entertainment center (i.e. air hockey, basketball, Wii, pool, computers, ping pong)
- Outstanding service

I will continue to recommend this hotel to other travelers as it will never fail to disappoint.

Spotless service and maintenance, ofcourse it is expensive but if you want to go for perfection in a hotel, it is the right place. It is not for those seeking coziness but professionalism.

I definitely recommend this hotel. Facilities are excellent, food great, service impeccable. Probably the best view on the island. Their pool is the best- crystal clear, heated, options of different jacuzzis. The beach is wide and the sand, Boracay fine. The crew really aims to please. My congratulations to the staff on their training. Value for Money. And if you want to go to D'Mall or anywhere in between (to dine or partake of any island activities), they have no qualms in taking you free in their private airconditioned van.

Hubby and I were in Boracay 5 years ago which we heard Shangri-la was under construction. Shangri-la was the only reason we went back to Boracay. We decided to spend our wedding anniversary which was also my 31st birthday. We arrived at 7a.m. with a very warm welcome from the staff and transferred with the nice speed boat. Arrived at the resort around 7:21 a.m and our room was ready. It was Jane who attended us and it happened I mentioned our anniversary. When we went back to our room after swimming, to our surprise there was a beautiful cake in our room on that night saying "happy anniversary". I never mentioned to her about it was my birthday too but it's because I am a member of Shangri-la's award program called Golden Circle, I'm pretty sure they got my birth date from my profile. To our surprise again, there was another beautiful birthday cake from the management.. They're so sweet!

We had a special dinner at Rima the Italian restaurant and everything was so great! great food, great wine and great service. Another surprise from the Chef, we had a complimentary desert with anniversary greetings on it. On the next day we tried their seafood restaurant called Sirena and I had a wonderful grilled squid. We tried to hang around on Solana's cabana but it was raining that afternoon. It supposed to be the perfect place to watch the sunset if the weather was fine.

We have no complain about the beach. We've been to the beach of station 1, 2 & 3 the last time we were in Boracay and to compared the roughness of the sand on the shangri-la's beach was no longer a big deal. The beach is so exclusive, not like in the resorts in station 1, 2 & 3 where you have to share the beach to all the people no matter they are guests or not.

Overall it was really great! it was not a peak season though. We had all the attentions of every resort staff :-)
