We were lucky enough to try the Solana bar and have Nathaniel serve us. The views of the sunset are spectacular and the service is exceptional. There was a great 2 piece band playing and Nathaniel was exceptionally attentive and helpful in suggesting wine and dinner. The tapas is great value for money, considering most restaurants here are a bit overpriced. This is paradise and the service everywhere at Shangri-la is the best in the world. Definitely worth a visit if you are nearby.

We went to Solano Bar for sundowners and dinner on our 35th wedding anniversary.

The setting is beautiful, the property lovely and well cared for. the sun down view is partially obstructed by a hill, so to take pictures you have to lean over in kind of awkward ways. The worst band I had heard on Boracay Island was playing down by the beach, and the bar was playing recorded music - it wasn't very conducive to romance, with the contrasting clashing sounds.

We had 5 Bacardi and cokes. I am very sensitive to alcohol, and can feel the effects after a few sips. I can attest there was minimal if any alcohol in those drinks, I didn't even have a buzz after 2 drinks and we left without eating the dinner we had planned. For this, we paid over 1800 pesos - about $43 USD - about twice the price charged at other bars on the island. It's a lot of money to pay for 5 flat Coca Colas.

If you are planning on going, I would suggest ordering wine. Perhaps you would get what you ordered.

Me and my husband are both awed by this place! The view is just stunning as it is overlooking the private Banyugan Beach of Shangri-La. Perfect place for watching the famous sunset of Boracay, just be sure to get the spot near the cliff but be there before sunset hour as it is on a first come first serve basis and everyone wants the cliff spot and the place is open for non-Shangri-La guests.

This whole property is so stunning. From the minute you arrive and are whisked away to the restaurant/bar of your choice..you are treated like royalty. We came here first for drinks. We missed sunset, so I think it you could make it here for that, it would be absolutely amazing! The service here is top notch, they call you by your name, and treat you like you are the most important person there! The views here are stunning, love the open bar, and the cute, raised booths for lounging , great for romance, even if I was there just with my friend! Prices were very reasonable too! great tapa menu and drink selection! stop here before dinner, or just for a drink and apps! Loved it!
