Amazing HoneymoonPosted Oct 20, 2014
Pros: The beach for sure and then the pool and then the restaurants.
Cons: Nothing.... Loved it all.
Location: Perfect. Away from the craziness of D-Mall and really enjoyed Puka Shell Beach- spent a day there.
Had a great time at the resort. Beaches were amazing and away from the busy D-Mall area. Many activities offered and spa was very relaxing. Restaurants a bit pricey, but well worth it- great food and great service. Staff was very friendly and went above and beyond to make you feel welcome. Can't say enough good things about our stay and would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone:)

Best hotel in BoracayPosted Jun 28, 2014
Pros: Quiet location - the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of white beach. Clean private beaches - never crowded at all.
Cons: More efficient internal buggy transfer. We waited 10-25 mins for golf buggies to take us to other parts of the resort.
Location: Take free shuttle bus, every hour to D'Mall (15mins) + tricycle to D'Talipapa (5 mins) for cheap local food and/or nightlife. Resort itself is enough.
We spent 5 nights in a Deluxe Sea view room at the end of June 2014. The weather was more or less sunny, with the odd cloud/shower and a heavy downpour on our last day. The resort has everything you want for a getaway holiday, if you don't need nightlife. We walked the entire west coast of Boracay and were able to check out most the hotels on offer. We were so pleased we spent the extra money to stay at Shangri-la because we would not have been happy with any of the other hotels (small/noisy). Perhaps Fairway (next to Shangri-la) would be acceptable but that is more of a golf resort/villa. The 2 (1 semi-)private beaches were lovely and did not have any touts so you could enjoy the beach as one should. No worries about security and life guards always on duty. The room was fine with lovely views of the sea. We liked the soft towels in the room and the small details, like washing powder to clean swimwear etc. Bed and pillows were fine. Didn't like: - Lunch/Dinner was average in taste but for the high cost we expected top quality food. Breakfast was fine/good range but always busy. - Check-out: there was heavy rain so they should have transferred us earlier to Caticlan airport due to rough seas + bell-boy made us wait for the next speedboat because a big group went already. Result: missed our check-in time. But to give credit, resort staff did a great job to rectify it and negotiated with the airline so we could still catch our flight with just 25 minutes to spare!

Beautiful hotelPosted Jun 6, 2014
Pros: Gardens beach, staff and service
Cons: The choice of restaurants. Two by the beach had the same menu and closed early. The main international restaurant had awful atmosphere and no custome
Location: Beautiful location. Need to catch the hotel bus for local shopping and nightlife
Coming from Dubai, I've been privileged to stay in some amazing hotels and I was surprised that this hotel is up there with the best of them. Lovely spacious room, stunning gardens beach and pool and great staff and service. It's only downside is the lack of eating establishments with only 3 real options to use and one of which closes at 8. Fortunately, a free bus on the hour takes you to the town. Overall a great first wedding anniversary stay and would highly recommend

Simply awesomePosted Jun 2, 2014 on Hotels.com
Once you're here, you won't need to venture outside the property (aside from snorkeling at Crocodile Island). Wife and I spent coupe hours on White Beach before deciding to return back to Shangri-La and enjoy our own private beach.

Great vacation!Posted Jun 1, 2014 on Hotels.com
My husband and I went to Boracay for a 2 night stay at the Shangri La hotel. Initially, I thought it was expensive but it was worth it! Unlike our stay in Manila, the hotel staff took very good care of us from the moment we arrived! The hotel was clean and well maintained. Staff was very attentive. Most important of all, the beach was private and quiet! We went to town via hotel shuttle, and we were glad that we stayed at the Shangri La when we witnessed the crown on the beach in town! My only complaint was the nail salon. We had our nails done, and my husband's lady was late. She came, didn't apologize, and didn't even introduce herself (mine didn't either). No drink was offered to us, and nothing special with the manicure, that was it just manicure! Overall, our stay was great! Thank you Shangri La, and we will be back!

Awesome Experience!Posted May 25, 2014
Our room was upgraded from garden view to sea/ocean view, and we were able to enjoy the sunrise and sunset from our room. Also, we have fresh fruits and the Ice bucket filled with ice daily in the room. The breakfast buffet has great selections and variety. We enjoyed using the pool and beach area. Excellent service from all the staff and from all departments. This is a truly 5 star rating hotel!

Best Hotel in Boracay!!!Posted May 4, 2014 on Hotels.com
Best hotel in Boracay, staff was fantastic and hotel was amazing. Location is a bit further out which is good as it also has a shuttle service to D'Mall. Staff catered to all our requests and was always helpful and willing to assist in anyway and make our stay more comfortable. Strongly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Boracay.
