I was impressed by how beautiful and cozy their private beach is. We went there everyday during our stay. Water is so clear that you can always see fishes swimming with you! Staff are friendly and polite. However, i do think the room needs renovation as the furnishing it quite outdated already. Bathroom is also quite small and dark.

Overall it's quite a comfortable hotel to stay in. I miss the beach!!

We stayed at this luxurious hotel that's right on the beach. We had a room with a balcony and faced the ocean. The water was warm to swim in. There are 2 swimming pools and lots of other amenities. You can have a relaxing massage in one of the huts, right on the sand and see the calm blue waters and the waves. The daily brunch is international and there is so much to choose from. We had the best New Year's eve celebration with an all night dancing performed by live performers, as well as all night serving of champagne and hors'd'ouvres on the house, for all guests. This was topped off with a fantastic fireworks display. The staff was friendly, attentive and made sure that our stay was comfortable. The only drawback is that this is not close to any shopping malls and so you would need a cab to drive you to the mall. But it's not difficult to do that.

Room Tip: Get a room with an ocean view of swimming pool view.

Shangri-La Mactan Resort and Spa was phenomenal in all aspects. Service was great. The grounds were beautiful and well-kept. The beach was awesome for sunbathing and just a few feet away from the shore is a fish sanctuary.

We stayed at the Ocean Wing room, which has the closest access to the infinity pool and the beach, where we spend most of the time swimming and relaxing.

The breakfast buffet has a wide selection of food, which was superb. We were delightfully entertained at the dinner buffet at Buko Bar, Filipino Fiesta theme, that comes with a Cultural Show. Our stomach were fully satisfied with their Sushi Mania dinner buffet at Tides.

All in all, thumbs up to Shangri-La Mactan. We had a memorable stay...

Room Tip: Ocean Wing room has the closest access to the beach.

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in the month of March for my family's annual vacation. This is the 3rd time my family and I have stayed in this hotel and we Love it. The service, facilities and the beach is excellent. Rooms in the Ocean Wing are starting to show some wear and tear and would probably need a make over in the next year or two. Our family booked adjacent rooms with each room able to fit 3 people comfortably (4 per room if you have infants). The beds and pillows are good and guarantees a good night's rest. The hotel's beachfront is not so wide but is enough for kids to run around without getting lost. The beach also serves as a marine sanctuary so bringing bread to the beach shores in the morning is a must for kids as feeding allows the kids to get up close to schools of fish. Kayaking is free and para-sailing, glass bottom boat rides, scuba diving, jet skiing are available for a fee. There is also a game room and play area called Adventure Zone for adults and kids to use. Restaurants in the hotel are ok but on the pricey side, eating outside of the hotel is recommended as there is a small Spanish restaurant that serves good "Paella" & pizza just across the road. The hotel offers a free shuttle service that takes you to the city proper where malls with stores and restaurants can be found. My family stayed in the hotel most of the time as there were enough activities to do here without having to go out into the city. A definite escape from city life, this hotel is worth coming back to.

We loved our stay at the Shangri-la Mactan. The resort was just amazingly beautiful and serene. While there were a lot of guests, you don't feel crowded because of the expansive grounds. The lawns are meticulously maintained, the pool areas had a lot of lounge chairs and there were a LOT of towel stations so no worries about getting fresh towels. The beach area also had a lot of lounge chairs. The snorkeling area was so-so - you can tell that the area was filled with fish and cordoned off for the sake of the guests. But I had no complaints.

Our room was also really wonderful. We were upgraded from a regular room to a suite in the Ocean Wing! The staff were mainly very courteous and friendly.

Loved the happy hour promo - we were drinking by 5pm! I loved their pina coladas - yummy! We were also lucky to catch a spectacular fireworks show after dinner.

All in all, one of the best weekend vacations I've ever had. Loved my experience.

We stayed in the ocean wing. Highly recommend it as the breakfast and evening cocktails / snacks make it worth it. One of the best hotel staff I have encountered!

Room Tip: Ocean wing is the best.
