“All you need is there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

This resort is indeed on of the top 3 in Cebu. Spacious, clean rooms (ours had a very nice view as well) Kind and helpful staff, complete breakfast (buffet-style) with too much to mention, perfect lunch and dinner. Perfect parking-facilities. Child-friendly. Guarded swimming-pools and sea-pool. Cannot find anything negative woth mentioning. Great resort.

Room Tip: Rooms on the backside have very nice pool-, garden- and seaview.

I have traveled to the Philippines numerous times for business and leisure over the past 10 years and whenever possible, I make it a point to stay at the Shangri-La's Mactan Resort. The service at the hotel is both professional and friendly. There's nothing better than walking through the lobby or the Ocean Club after a long day at work and being greeted by name by the hotel staff. They have always gone out of their way to make sure that my colleagues and I are happy and that our stay is a memorable one. The hotel itself is beautiful. I have been told that the white sand on the hotel's beach is actually brought in from Boracay. I don't doubt this, as it is spectacular. I always stay on the Ocean Club floor of the Ocean Wing and have found it to be much more quiet than the Main Wing. I enjoy the ocean view suites when they are available. Nothing beats coming back to the hotel after a long day at work and having a glass if wine on the balcony of your room overlooking the water. The Chi Spa is a must if you have time for a massage or day at the spa. I also recommend the Tea of Spring for dining. The food is great and the selection of teas is fabulous.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms on the Ocean Club Wing are the best!

I'm not a great "resort" fan, but this property may change my mind. great staff, gorgeous grounds and a spa to die for...I came for business, but it seems the property has some great kids amenities that would make this a great family destination as well.

Cebu was hit by one of the worst typhoons ever about 2 days before I arrived. But the resort is virtually untouched by the devastation in the surrounding region. The lobby is open and spacious with marvellous views of the ocean. The staff are all friendly, warm and helpful without exception. This despite the challenging times of the typhoon with many having relatives and friends who may have been affected by the typhoon.
The rooms are large, comfortable and beautifully appointed. The bathroom has everything one could need with lovely toiletries and warm water with good pressure. Take an ocean view room and enjoy a cold drink on the balcony while looking at the pool and beach.
Snorkelling is a must! This is the only place you can swim out to the corals in waist deep water. Numerous multicoloured fish swimming in the corals were a delight!
The breakfast buffet at Tides at Garden level has a great selection. My personal favourite is the garlic rice with a local salted fish called dangit.
The Chi Spa is a perfect sanctuary that completely refreshes and rejuvenates!

We came here unexpectedly Nov 9th after the typhoon meant we could not head north to Malapasqua. We just showed up and the staff were very helpful. They offered us a very reasonable rate (same as what I had seen online) and very kindly provided us with some extra supplies as our baggage was delayed. We only stayed one night but I would definitely come back - great option for families. Also has very good food in the restaurants. The pool complex was a huge hit with our daughter and the beach is beautiful and clean. Very good service and support overall during what was a very challenging time for the region. Excellent location - very close to the airport.

Room Tip: the band at the bar/lobby can be a bit loud at night - ask to be far away if you don't want the...

The hotel did a stellar job to provide normalcy during some very challenging days! What an amazing staff and GM. I've visited the hotel several times and it keeps getting better. Great beach and would be amazing for a family vacation.
